The True Story of an Angel of the Lord Blasting Us out of Bed Three Sundays in a Row

Updated on September 07, 2016

Theresa loves to share her true life accounts when the Lord shows up mightily in her life. She knows He still performs miracles today.

Scripture from the Holy Bible on Miracles


And God did unusual and extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul. Acts 19:11


Earnestly, remember the marvelous deeds which He has done. His miracles, and the judgments He uttered. 1 Chronicles 16:12


Blasted out of Bed Three Sundays in a Row


This is a true account of when we finally decided to join the church in the city in which we lived at the time. We had been away from church for a while.


The only real reason we had even started looking for a church to attend, was because our son, who was 15 at the time, cracked his spleen from a skateboarding accident, and two doctors told him he was going to have to have surgery, as his spleen was pretty much shattered. My son prayed and told us he was not going to have to have surgery, and he did not have surgery!


Of course, our son spent a couple of days in Intensive Care and several weeks of recovery at home. Our son’s faith, at the time, knowing the Lord would heal him had a great impact on my husband and I.


So, we began visiting churches around the city and just did not find the right one for us immediately.


Finally, after about having given up on the idea, we visited the church we eventually became members of then, and just knew in our hearts it was the church for us. We could feel the Holy Spirit’s presence there.


After the first Sunday we visited, we had already made up our minds we would attend that particular church. Yes, it was the perfect church for us, and we were so excited.


Well, sure enough, that very first Sunday, after we decided we would attend that particular church, my husband and I fell into that temptation of extra sleep, and we even told each other how tired we both were and how it would be okay for us to sleep in.


Isn't it funny how very sleepy one can be on Sunday mornings. The enemy loves to put those little thoughts in one's head such as, the Lord understands how tired you are, and it will be okay, as He knows how hard you have worked all week, and plus you need your rest.

God's Sense of Humor

So, as I previously stated, we did not even hit the snooze button. We turned the alarm off, and snuggled back down to a good sleep. Then, in just a few moments after we had time to get back into a comfortable sleep mode, the loudest, most ear-piercing, deafening blast of sound came from the front of the house.


We both leaped from the bed, covering our ears in pain, and running to the front of the house as fast as we could run. Our stereo system, at the time, with Bose speakers, was blasting music at the highest level it could blast. Let me tell you, after that, we were wide awake. The stereo knob was on full blast. The whole house was shaking, and we knew the neighbors three blocks away could hear it! That is how loud it was. That had never happened before that day, and we had that system for years and years and nothing like that had ever happened.


So, since we were wide awake, guess what? Yes, we went on to church. We just kind of dismissed it as a power surge of some sort, and really did not think about it too much, but just that it was strange, as we have had power surges before without the stereo blasting out in such a manner.


The very next Sunday, same thing happened again, at the precise time we turned off the alarm clock to go back to sleep, within the next few seconds of having turned the alarm off, we were, once again, blasted out of bed, holding our ears in pain and running to the front of the house to turn down the stereo. We thought how strange, and then went on to church.


The third Sunday in a row, at the precise time we turned off our alarms, yes, the Lord blasted us out of bed for the last time, as we got it then! We were kind of hard-headed, obviously. Well, we were just plain sorry, as they say in the South. We said out loud to the Lord, “Okay, Lord, we are on our way!” Driving to church that Sunday, we kept telling the Lord, “See Lord, we are on our way! “ From then on, we did not turn off our alarm, but got up and went to church. The stereo never blasted music like that ever again, not before that first Sunday, and not after that third Sunday.


We know without a doubt, the Lord wanted us to attend and eventually become a member of that particular church, which was such a blessing to us and we grew closer to the Lord and matured in Christ. We developed a more intimate relationship with Him because we had joined that particular church.


I can just picture the Lord sending an angel to turn the stereo up to the highest level of sound, all the while smiling joyfully. Although I refer to this as one of my funny “boasting in the Lord stories” and how He has a sense of humor; it is still a sweet story too. Thinking back on those three Sundays of being blasted out of bed by the Lord, my heart is overwhelmed of the extent of His great love for us and all that He wants for us in this life. He is sweet like that, you know.

      Yes, when He has a path for you to travel, He sometimes resorts to getting your attention - my husband was going to 'run away' and God got his attention when my husband broke his foot so that now he will actually never run again... I think it happens especially when He is calling us and we get distracted...or just don't want to come...

      He does have a way of giving us His messages. So many are too busy to listen but clearly you did not have much choice. I hope you have found a wonderful church home. Even at that sometimes the temptation is, well, to let Sunday slip by...without a service. But there is that special spiritual connection from those with whom we worship that I find now that I am in a tiny church in the town where I live that I am not tempted so often. God's blessing with thee and thine.

      heavenbound5511 4 years ago from Under the shadow of the Almighty God!

      I love this testimony of yours!That's funny and God is awesome and knows what will make us move!

      Many things are done to keep people out of church. I hear a lot of people who are trying to step out and start going to church having so much trouble that they just give up and don't go-anything from cars breaking down,sudden illnesses and etc.

      We must realize that the enemy doesn't want us to get close to God and will throw up many obstacles,but it is up to us to still choose the right thing.

      Yes, I have been fought with getting to church & still do at times, my house would go crazy and it would be hard just to get everyone going the same direction,plus trying not to get mad at them at the same time because it doesn't help going angry.I'm still working on getting to the morning service,but we/I make it consistently to the evening service-plus prayer service. God just wants us to seek him and be consistent in all areas-church,prayer,praise &worship,learning his word-all of it!Also when looking for a church-for those that are still looking it is important to pray for God to lead you to where he wants you to be in Jesus name. The kind of church God wants us in will have a word in season for us and cause us to go forward-change isn't always comfortable so we also don't want a place that we are so comfortable that God's word isn't being taught in a life transforming way. A spirit filled church is revealed in this verse: 15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”Mark 16

      Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Zech 4:6

      Thanks for sharing I enjoyed this one! :)

      heavenbound, wow, thanks for the powerful comments of our Great Lord. What the enemy wants most and what he cannot stand, is WORSHIP to our our King, and he will do whatever it takes for that not to happen. The enemy does not want us to have that abundant life that Jesus has promised us. The world in which we live and just everyday crazy life, as you say, can hinder one too. The main point is to seek first the Kingdom of God and all will be provided unto you. Let's never take our eyes off Christ. Let us always be looking up to Him. One does not have to go to church to be saved, for sure, as Christ has already taken care of all that on the cross. The Lord wanted for me and my family to become a part of the Body of Christ at that particular church, as it is a spirit-filled church, and we grew and matured in Christ there, and witnessed many wonderful and powerful things of God to be told. In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Hello vnsatakopan - I am so glad you stopped by to read and I appreciate your comments. Yes, you are so right, as I love to worship where ever I am at the moment, whether at home, in my car or anywhere one can worship our sweet LORD. In this instance, I know without a shadow of a doubt, the LORD wanted us to attend that specific church for a reason, and I believe that to be that we grew in our maturity and walk with Christ at the church. We have since moved on to two other churches due to relocation of where we live. I appreciate you. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

Next week my first grandson will be born on Wednesday, so I will be out of the picture for a little while getting to know him!

      Yes, we are excited, as I am already blessed with two beautiful granddaughters, that I have shared here a lot about on HP. So, they will be the big sisters (2 & 4 years old) Ha. Now, they will have a sweet baby brother.

      I will try my best tonight to get over to your hubs, as they are always such a blessing to read. I am starving, so I will take a break and eat dinner. I hope you have a lovely evening, and I know you are maybe two hours ahead of me timewise in Texas. My daughter was actually born in Ft. Worth, Texas, when my husband was in the Air Force back in the day. I know that it takes over 12 hours to drive there from here!!!

      Many see going to church as a chore or something they do for God when indeed as you say it is for our benefit. I do think many churches have turned it into businesses, more members, more money, but it is for fellowship which we need to keep ourselves close to Christ and to grow into His word. Good churches are not that easy to find anymore with many becoming of the world, so once we find a good one we need to hang on tight and try to help it stay true to the word. We are sure going to need a good one in these last days.

      Great write. ^

      I love this story Faith. I have been searching for a long time and thought I had found a church home too. I longed for the small fellowship and was blown away by the intimacy. Lo and behold the next Sunday it was discussed about the big plans for growth, new church, ect...Now I am not sure. I just wanted simple... so will continue to seek God and pray. Maybe I need an alarm like yours...Thank you for sharing.

      Hi Dearest Jackie,

      So glad to see you stopping by my sweet friend. Your words here speak so much truth. We are to worship and glorify our Lord God and to have that fellowship with others who will pray and encourage us when we need it, which is daily seems like nowadays for sure! We knew we found the right church for us, as we just felt His presence there so strong, plus we grew and matured in Christ through the many Bible studies and friendships.

      I know God has a sense of humor in sending that angel down to "blast us out of bed!" LOL But, then, on the other hand, we know He knows what is best for us. As I love to say, He is sweet like that, you know!

      If you are having trouble with your notifications, you can go under your email settings to make sure you have everything checked the way you would like to receive your email notifications.

      Yes, I do believe our sweet Lord will soon return. What a glorious day that will be for me.

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Hi Sunnie,

      LOL, yes He sure did get us out of bed, but I know you do not have that problem! We no longer have that problem ever since that third Sunday in a row. LOL I thank Him daily for loving us so much to send that angel to blast us right out of bed those three Sundays in a row!

      We know to have that intimate and personal relationship with our Lord, it is not necessary to attend church; however, obviously it WAS necessary for us to be able to grow and mature in Christ and He sent us to the church where we did just that no doubt.

      God bless you my dear sweet friend, Sunnie.

      A delightful read, Faith Reaper.

      Being tired tonight, your story woke me up and gave me a good chuckle. Perhaps God, or His Angel, chose the loud stereo to get some of the neighbors to go to church also. Well, you probably will not sleep in again, but if you do, have some hot coffee ready for Him.

      Yes, I have had some miraculous occurrences happen in my life, and I voted accordingly. But when you think about it, God's miraculous power is conspicuous everywhere throughout His creation. Because of what our sciences are discovering everyday concerning God's creation, the miracles revealed daily dwarf what was seen in the Exodus. It is astounding when we look up in the sky and realize that each star is probably a galaxy with 300 billion stars within it, and each star is separated by about 4 light years of space, and God created the space.

      Morning Caleb DRC,

      So lovely to have you stop by to read this day! I am glad this gave you a chuckle, as we look back now and realize God truly has a good sense of humor, does he not!!! LOL This is written just as it happened those three Sundays in a row. He has not had to send another angel to get us out of bed on Sundays here of late!

      I am glad you shared that you have had some miraculous occurrences in your life too. There is no other explanation that I can conceive of for this happening at the precise time it did those three Sundays in a row. God is sweet like that, you know.

      And it was truly the turning point in getting us back on the right path and looking up to Him in our of our daily trials. I place my faith and trust in Him each morning. He is so good to love us that much to blast us out of bed! Praise Him!

      Yes, I agree as to His miraculous power being conspicuous everywhere throughout His creation. It truly is astounding to look up and realize each star is probably a galaxy with 300 billion stars within it and separated by 4 light years of space ... which He created such space! Our minds cannot even conceive of such greatness.

      Thank you for blessing me this morning with such thought-provoking comments to glorify our sweet Lord God!

      God bless you always, Faith Reaper

      Interesting and funny.

      Although I don't share all of your beliefs, I am a very spiritual person and I completely believe in angels.

      The deep power of your faith shines clearly through all of your work.

      An entertaining and well written hub.

      Hello Anna,

      I am so glad you dug this one up! Yes, God

      Hello Anna,

      I am so glad you dug this one up! Yes, God has a good sense of humor and I am blessed for it. I know without a shadow of a doubt, He sent that Angel those three days in a row to blast us out of bed, and we have been ever grateful for doing such since those days many years ago.

      More Hugs to you,

      Faith Reaper

      Oh my heavens, Dear Faith,

      Just when I think I can't love you any more, I happen upon this and I thank you so very much for tipping me off!

      This shows such a human and lovable side to you and your hubby, yet the extreme power of faith and, yes, miracles. You know I see this story ending up in a particular M & M series, don't you...just sayin'...?!

      Voted UP and all the way across...I guess when the Lord calls, we had better listen! Love ya, Maria

      Hi Dear Maria,

      LOL, well, yes, it is a true story of how God must have really wanted to get us out of bed to say the least!!! It never happened again after those three Sundays in a row ... that is after we got up and started going to that particular church, where it is that we did grow in our faith and no longer needed an angel sent by the Lord to blast us out of bed each Sunday. LOL

      I appreciate you reading and the vote up and more.

      Hugs and much love to you,

      Faith Reaper

      This is such a great story Faith! It took us a while to find a church home as well. We tried many in the area. We stopped going for a while because my son wasn't accepted at the last one and we were asked to leave (because he has Autism).

      We were asked to serve on the Special Needs Ministry. Isn't it amazing how the Lord works in mysterious ways?

      Hi Dear Crafty,

      Thank you for digging up this one, as it is one of the first hubs I published after joining HP! I am so glad you thought this story great, as it is a true story indeed.

      Oh, how sad for your family and your son ... yes, time to move on!!!

      The Lord does work in mysterious ways and He moved you to where you were needed and accepted, so that in reality was a good thing about having to leave the other church, but they will have to answer for such one day.

      I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

      Blessings

      Faith, thanks for sharing your miraculous and uplifting story about church and miracles. Nothing like that happened to me. Before my mother died last year, we've been looking for the right church to go to, since she had trouble walking and then got ill. Last summer, I went to a local church, the same one when I've met the preacher who gave my mother last rites before she died. I knew it was the right one for me, since everyone there was warm and welcoming with hugs and friendship. The service was a tad different, but I knew in my heart, my mother would've loved it, if she was alive. I feel closer to her and to God, every time I go to church. Voted up!

      Hi Kristen,

      I am so glad you found this one from two years ago! I have not one bit of doubt that the Lord God sent an angel to blast us out of bed because that is exactly what happened for three Sundays in a row at the precise time. It is a wonderful church and we grew in our relationship with the Lord God. It had a wonderful women's community-wide Bible study. I learned so much from attending that and serving in the Women Ministries of the church too. Plus the worship time on Sundays was amazing.

      I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I lost my precious mother in December of 2012. I am so thrilled you feel closer to your mother and to God when you go to that particular church.

      Thank you sharing your story. I appreciate the vote up.

      God bless you.

      This is from 3 years ago, at first I thought it was one I missed but then I saw I had been here then! Guess we have known each other much longer than I thought!

      This is a great one to share, so I will!

      Hi Jackie,

      I know, I can't believe it's been so long ago, well, actually four years ago since I published this one. I'm surprised it was so well received back then as I had just joined HubPages.

      God certainly works in mysterious ways and He has a sense of humor too! I will never forget those three Sundays in a row and the following years for we grew so much in our relationships with the Lord, which in turn increased our faith by leaps and bounds.

      Reading this one again makes me smile, so thank you for coming back and sharing.

      I appreciate you!

      This is a fun story and a reminder that the Lord knows exactly what to do to get us to get up and do what we know we need to do. A little nudge doesn't always do it, so he has to BLAST us out of bed. It works! :)

      Hi Marlene,

      Yes, I always smile when I think of those three Sundays in a row, and just know it could not have been anything else but the sweet Lord sending an angel down to blast us out of bed ...hahaha. That's when I found out about His sense of humor, but really His great love for us to have life and have it to the full.

      Peace and blesssings always
