Entertaining Angels

Today’s post was inspired by the reading of God’s Word from the (NIV) New International Version of the Bible, from Chapter 13 of the book of Hebrews.

Hebrews 13:2 (NIV): “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.”

Are you somebody’s Angel
Or do you long to meet
A majestic, messenger of God
As you walk down the street

A hallowed, attending Spirit
Well-meaning and kind
That descends from the Heavens
And stands right alongside

A troubled soul… when they need it the most

With encouraging words
Or perhaps a monetary gift
Comes at just the right time
When you needed a lift

Their gentle, sweet, smile
Out of the blue
To comfort…

And you thought no one cared for you?

Sometimes these angels
Are people we know
They love us and pray for us
Yes, they too are sweet souls

But the encounters with strangers
Whom we’ve never met
The ones we happen upon
But won’t soon forget

How they materialized
With kindness we didn’t expect
When we thought God wasn’t listening
That’s when they stepped

Into our lives…

What a beautiful blessing
God not only heard our cries
He sent His Angels

The needs of His people…

These celestial beings are
Extremely delicate and light in a way that seems
Too perfect for this world

Yes, that’s right

When you come upon a stranger
Will you treat them
As such?

Or will you
Be the Angel
Their soul needs
So very much?

  1. I go to the gym 3 times a week. Never have I had such an opportunity to experience this…..Just a simple `Hey,You are lookin` really good` ` Hang in there` `You got me beat today` They return with a big smile and `Thanks` Just look around…..you can always be very thankful.
