Follow the Nudge: An Angel Message

My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.
--Psalm 62
Webster's dictionary defines nudge: to touch or push gently; to seek the attention of by a push of the elbow. I believe the angels define it it as "Pay attention to this now." When we start to feel this angel nudge, it's a good thing that comes from deep within.  God needs us to act on something. It may happen at the "now" moment needed, or sometimes it's days, weeks, or months before we need to move on it.

This feeling of being pushed is a sure way for success of some kind. It's not outlined or premeditated. A welling up of moving energy inside happens spontaneously, and we can't help but move with the angel nudge.  At times it's a little overwhelming because we may do or say something a little or a whole lot out of character. The impulse is so strong.  You just do it, whatever "it" is. Your spiritual intuition is in charge and your logical mind becomes the witness to the activity.

 I remember a time when silently mulling over a problem while riding in the car.  An angel nudge directed me to a man walking on the sidewalk downtown.  Psalm 62 in bold letters was on the back of his shirt. The timing seemed important.  Curious, I made a mental note to look it up later at home.

Turns out, I didn't need to wait that long.  Elliot and I spontaneously stopped for lunch at a local restaurant. While waiting for our order, an angel thought nudged. Check out the donations for sale on the bookcase in the lobby. 
I was glad I listened.  I'd forgotten all about Psalm 62 as I browsed through the books on the shelves, but the angels delivered.
There on the shelf was an old red book, Notes on the Psalms! I returned to the table, beaming. "Look what I found."
 "The angels are talking to you!" Elliot smiled.  
  As I silently read notes on Psalm 62, a peaceful calm came over me.
"My soul waiteth in silence for God only:
From him cometh my salvation.
He is my rock and my salvation:
He is my high tower; I shall not be greatly moved.
... Trust in him at all times... 
...Pour out your heart before him."

God's love seemed close as I closed the book in gratitude.  It was the answer I needed.  Trust God.
Whenever you are not sure about doing something, allow time for God's angels to give you the nudge. There are rhythms in life that we don't always know about. He does. Trust Him. He's extremely accurate, always and the results bring peace. 
Also it's important not to hold back out of fear when it's time to take action. Divine timing is at work. As we learn to attune to, and trust the nudge, our faith will grow stronger and we will have peace, knowing that all is well with our soul. "For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways."  (Psalm 91:11)
