Are Angels among us?

Visited by an Angel

In my lifetime I have had too many miracles to not believe in Angels. From the days of my youth, I believe I was visited by an Angel while sitting in a bar in Buffalo. He looked at me as if to say 'what are you doing here, wasting your life'. It was predominantly a black bar, he was a white man, with a straw hat, and a blue suit, and when I looked away from him for a second and then back at him, he had disappeared.

A twisted face

Years ago my estranged husband and I were separated, at the time I had left my clothes over his house and so I went there to retrieve them. He tried to talk to me about reconciling, but at the time I had had enough.

While sitting there talking to him, suddenly his face twisted as he started to shout at me. His face resembled an animal snarling as if it were trapped in a snare. I screamed, jumped up and made a run for the door, unsuccessfully, he grabbed me and put his hand over my mouth, cutting off my air supply.

We struggled and somehow I made it out the door, as I stumbled into the the hall of the house where he lived, he grabbed me again. I screamed the name of Jesus, my legs and arms depleted of strength.

Suddenly I saw him double over, nearly falling to the floor as if he was in great pain. I looked at him for a few seconds, then ran down the stairs and out the door, straight to the police station.

Years later we became friends and we talked about that horrific day. He told me that a great pain went through his body, forcing him to let go of me. He doubled over and I took the opportunity to escape. I believe my guardian angel struck him, giving me time to get away.

An angel kept us from falling over a cliff

In 1988 I was fortunate to visit Israel, the land I had always dreamed about. While there with a friend we set out at night for a two hour drive from Tiberas to Bethlehem. I wanted to spend Christmas there and see the place where Christ was born.

My friend at that time had a substance abuse problem, drinking and taking pills that had him constantly battling sleepiness. Trying to keep him awake exhausted me and before I knew it, I was waking up realizing I had dozed off, only to find the car going in a wild tailspin.

The car just kept spinning in circles and as it went into the second spin I screamed the name of Jesus, loud and long, the car immediately came to a stop. Where we were travelling the countryside was very mountainous, with no fences. No fence, or gate would have stopped us from going over the cliffs, to our deaths below.

So do I believe in angels, you bet! They are God's messengers sent from on high to warn, guide and help us when in danger. They have saved me more than once as I have called on God for help!

      I'm not one, but I do believe in sharing our stories when Angels have intervened in our lives. They are God's messengers and they are amazed at us humans, because God loves us so much.

      What a beautiful testimony about Angels. i absolutely believe in them and in my Guardian Angel. I also know that there many angels who walk this earth with us, nameless. faceless, asking nothing in return but being there when we need them.

      It is also my personal that God uses us to do his work, by using our mouths to give others messages of confirmation and clarity. Sometimes, we never know what impact our words had on others, and sometimes we know about it many many years later.

      Thank you for sharing with all of us how Jesus comes to our aid or send help to us when we call upon his name.

      I remember watching a news report about the tornado that hit Joplin, and how some people were taking shelter in a supermarket or grocery shop. On the store's security audio,you could hear this woman continuously calling the name of Jesus. When it was over, they were all safe in that place. Let us continue to lift up the name of Jesus always.

      Thank you, life is so full of surprises. When we tell our stories they let other people know just how much God cares for us, when we receive angelic intervention.

      Your title struck me so I had to take a read! Yes, there are angels amongst us and I've met a few over my life time. Once while riding the train, I needed some answers. It's funny how you don't recognize them until they walk away or disappear but I'm thankful just the same! Bless you for telling your story!
