In This World, Nothing Is Certain But: Death, Taxes, Angels & God
Updated: Apr 14
Last night at 10:26 p.m. and 22 years old, I pulled out my phone and texted my mom asking her to come sleep with me.
I’d love to say it was just a regular night that I wanted to hangout with her and watch TV, but that just wasn't the case. I asked her to come sleep with me because my mind was racing about an accident that occurred earlier that night involving a little girl.
I lost sleep over a tragedy about someone I never even met and I kept myself up begging God to save her life.
Isn’t it strange that only in tragedy, do we truly pray for miracles?
My mom knew I was praying for her survival. Who wouldn’t be? Naturally, people pray for miracles, for life and for healing. That’s when my mom replied with a message that hit me like a ton of bricks,
“maybe God needs her more...” she said.
The only thing that brought peace over me, is the thought that there comes a point in all of our lives, where God needs us more.
Constantly, we are calling on God to be healed, lifted, for hope and for strength to get through the twisted parts of life.
In the end though, it is not that our need for Him ever runs out, but rather it is He who finally needs us more.
You know when people receive some of God’s greatest miracles? Where people live, are healed and good prevails. People always say in those times - wow, that person had a guardian angel with them.
That saying has grown to upset me.
What about the times people don’t live? Someone is left unhealed and the dream of a miracle we wanted never comes true...
I refuse to believe that on our worst days we’re either saved or stranded - that we have an angel or we don’t. No, I believe my guardian angel will hold my hand BOTH when God chooses life and when He chooses Heaven.
On those days that life flips upside down, the miracle is your angel taking your hand and recognizing it's time to save you in one way or another.
I challenge you to always see the miracle, to always see the angel and to trust that neither God nor angels, turn a blind eye on our best or our worst days.
Someday, it will turn out that God needs us more. My guardian angel will still be with me. We are never left, abandoned or seen as an option of who God should save today.
Instead, in our calling moment, God will look at us and say, “You’re just the person I needed.”
