See it.

Need to see

Live it.

Having met a new acquaintance at church this week, we proceeded to talk about matters of the heart. He told me that years earlier he was golfing and noticed a strange man sitting on the bench near where he was teeing off. He spoke to the man and heard, "life in short, be sure to live it," or something like that. Thinking the man would say something else, he hit his golf ball and turned and find him gone. He looked where the stranger might have moved, but he was nowhere to be found. That was hardly a life changing moment, yet he can recall it years later. I suggested what he may have considered. "Perhaps he was an angel sent to give you that message." Neither of us said it, but both probably thought if that was the case, more information would have been nice.

In my years I've seen my share of strange encounters for which there is no physical explanation. I've known many angels whose face did not glow but who was sent to deliver a message to me. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that my deliverance from catastrophe and life-threatening encounters has been by agents of God. Therefore, I have proven that I don't have to believe in angels to be blessed by their presence. In the same way, I don't have to explain God or His grace to enjoy it.

Pray it.

We, Your people, God, look forward to what You've prepared for us.
