I Believe There are Angels

I have always loved pictures of Angels. The Bible mentions them many times and as a little girl I was fascinated by the thoughts of angels being around me. My mommy would pray that the angels would surround me and that the Lord would watch over me. I loved that. To me angels are so comforting. I believe they are in a different realm from our earthly home, but I truly believe they are here.

I always love the angels in the Christmas pageants. Pretty wings and sweet innocent expressions. That's how I see the female and children angels. I imagine male angels as strong and confident. The Lord would send them to relay messages to mortals and nearly always they must have frightened because they(the angels) would say, "Do not be afraid."

There's much we don't know about angels, but I believe someday we will understand so much more. So many things will be revealed to us. I sometimes think that so many of these things I wonder about and want to ask about when I get to heaven will probably fade away when I get to see Jesus. May we always commit everything to Him and be able to have a peace that passes all understanding.

Do you believe there are angels in 2008?

I love to visit you blog and be surprised by a new format and header -- you always keep it interesting, Trish!

I said the "Guardian Angel" prayer every day as a child, and taught it to my children, too. I do believe we each have an angel assigned by God to watch over us and bring us home someday.

That was a lovely post. I am quite sure angels are there in a different realm. Didn't God make man only a little lower than the angels?

Hi Trish!
What a beautiful post! I believe in angels too. The Bible says there is a spiritual warfare that is going on that we can not see. And the angels are our protectors. I think it's so important to pray for angelic protection for our loved ones and ourselves. Thank you for such an uplifting message!!
Hugs, Sherry
And may God's angels protect you and yours!

Remember the TV Show Touched By An Angel? There was an episode called
"The Spirit of Liberty Moon" #426
You can see about it here.

That image of the chinese girl,
Bai Ling, being beaten, but during the beating and her death, she is held by an angel....stays in my mind. We are NOT alone...we have heavenly angels with us!

Remember an angel rolled back the stone of Jesus grave....

"And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it."
Matt 8:23

I could go on an on....yes, I believe in angels!!

Blessings and prayers!!

Beautiful post NanaT...

I do believe in angels, maybe not in the traditional sense, but in the presence around us, of those who guide and love us.

I absolutely believe in angels! Both heavenly and those here on earth!

Yes, Nanatrish, there are angels which surround and protect us. I have been saved from harm many times by angels. Sometimes in the nick of time. Too many times to count. What a sweet post. Your sweet and loving spirit shines through. I really like this post!

I believe in angels. I am amazed by the verses (think it's in Daniel) about the angel that finally arrived with an answer to Daniel's prayer. When asked why it took so long, the angel said he had been in a great battle with the forces of evil that were in charge of that city...hope I remembered this story correctly. I think it was a dream that Daniel had.

Wonderful post and an excellent subject.

Oh yes! Angels are real. But they don't have wings. They look like you and me. That's what the Holy Scriptures say. So, yes, indeed, they are real and all around us (seen and unseen). He loves us and protects His own. ♥ ∞

The Bible tells us to entertain strangers because we may entertain angels unaware. So... Yes, I do believe in angels because God speaks of them in his Word. Wouldn't it be amazing to find out that we entertained angels here on earth and we didn't even know it?

I find it facinating!!!!

Yes, I believe in angels. I had one accompany me on a trip I made, alone, across Canada and down into Washinton. It was amazing! Maybe I'll write about it on my blog...

eu gostei do seu blog. Eu acredito nessas palavras: The angel of Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them. Psalm 34:7.
I go to return more times. abraços
