On your website it mentions you’re looking for angel stories for your book, and I’d like to share my experience with you.
Do I believe in angels? Well, that’s a very good question! I lived in Norfolk for a number of years and suffered with very severe depression, as a result of being in an abusive relationship. I felt so desperately lonely, and every day for three years I contemplated taking my own life. Yes, it really was that bad. To sum up those years, and without going into too many personal details, I would describe that time as being in ‘total hell’.
I remember one special event that occurred back in 2001. I was at my lowest ebb possible and seriously considering ending my life. I managed (goodness knows how!) to drive to Bury St. Edmunds and went to sit inside the abbey. The weather was horrendous that day- dark grey clouds, pouring rain, thunder and lightening. I felt it would be the only place that I would feel safe and where I could maybe find some refuge from the way I was feeling.
I sat there in silence for about 30 minutes and asked God to give me a sign that everything was going to be ok, because I was absolutely terrified. As I sat on the pew with began tears streaming down my face, and I was seriously doubting that I’d get any kind of sign. However, after about 5 minutes, I noticed that the sun was streaming through one of the stain-glass windows (very unusual for such a dark miserable day). When I turned around, it was shining through one of the angel figures depicted in the artwork! WOW! Was this my sign!?
Being the sceptic, I thought it was merely a coincidence and too good to be true, so I ‘tested’ God to give me another sign…. After 10 minutes nothing had happened so I decided to take a look in the gift shop. I opened the door, and the first thing I clapped my eyes on was a book about angels. There was my second sign- and a serious wake-up call that I wasn’t alone and never had been! I’ve felt an affinity to them ever since….
I looked out of the window and asked the shop assistant if she’d noticed when the sun had come out- she looked slightly perplexed, and replied that she had no idea what I was talking about!! A very profound, yet odd experience. So, I guess I could say I do believe in angels….
I am grateful to say that I finally found the strength to leave my abusive past behind me, and I’d like to think that the angelic realms played their part.
Thank you for sharing that with me. Very inspiring.
I hope you have enjoyed your journey with the angels and that they will bless you with loving friends, health and happiness.
