Our Guarding Angels

It was Friday, July 19th, and I awoke anxious to spend some time with the grandchildren. My son, Gabriel and daughter-in-law, Monique were out of town and I made a call to them with my request. Of course, they gave me the children’s schedule and permission to pick them up.

While en route to the house, I decided to make that long awaited trip to Myrtle Beach, SC, for a time of fun and relaxation (a surprise for them). My son, Michael and daughter-in-law, Donnella, along with two of the other grandchildren (who play on a basketball team) were already there. They were involved in the AAU tournaments most of the week. Although this was a spur of the moment decision to go to the beach, this was a good time to render support. The game was exhilarating, and the boys were playing hard, giving it their all. We clapped and cheered them on. After the game, we all went back to the team’s housing and relaxed before going to dinner. As we were driving to the restaurant, we could literally see the beach. The children and I were looking forward to going to the ocean and wading in the water. While heading to the ocean, a tremendous thunderstorm came out of nowhere. It decided for us that the ocean was not a place to go.

I said to the children, “We must get back on the highway towards Fayetteville and we will do this again at another time.” Although we all were highly disappointed, we wanted to be safe. I looked at the gas needle and decided to fill up further down the highway. The eldest grandchild, Israel and I kept talking about the events of the day. I had no idea that the storm would interrupt my GPS system. We kept riding, the storm was raging, and the GPS directions were off immensely. As we continued riding, I kept watching the gas needle and praying silently. This was serious, we were in unfamiliar territory, with no clear directions out. I shared with Israel that we had a potential problem at hand. He did not get alarmed, but agreed with me that we were going to be alright. I kept watching the gas needle and noticed that it was not moving. We kept confessing, “Safety.” Finally, after a long trip in unchartered areas and dark, lonely roads, I saw a familiar sign saying, Fayetteville. Israel and I saw a gas station at the same time and we gave a, “Thank you, Jesus praise!” The younger ones had no idea what was happening. They kept talking and playing with one another.

When we got out to pump the gas, I noticed that the gas needle never moved. I said, “Israel, out of all the riding that we have done, the gas needle has not moved at all!” I said, “Our angels are on their assignment concerning us!” He agreed that we had angels that were traveling with us and holding the gas in place. There was never fear, however, the unknown can be intimidating. We thanked GOD Almighty for dispatching our ministering spirits according to Hebrews 1:14 Amplified Bible (AMP) - Are not all the angels ministering spirits sent out [by God] to serve (accompany, protect) those who will inherit salvation? Of course, they are!
