141st -- Angel At The Bus Stop


It is a great encouragement to know that God is always in control
regardless of how hopeless we may sometimes feel. The Lord is faithful to
have the sun rise every morning and faithful to have the earth watered so
that every living thing can continue to live. I encourage you to think of
God's faithfulness whenever the enemy tries to discourage you and remember,
just like how God is faithful to have the sun rise and the earth watered;
He will be faithful to meet your needs as well. The Lord promises to
guide, guard and give you your hearts desires because of your trust and
faith in Him. (Psalm 23:2-4) (Psalm 34:7) (Psalm 37:4)

This is a really encouraging story that shows how God is always with us in
good times and in bad. He is there to laugh with us when we laugh and
comfort us when we feel low. I hope you'll be encouraged by this simple
message and remember that God is with you no matter what you may be going
through in your life. (Ecclesiastes 3:4) (Psalm 118:6-8)


There was still a steady rain when Amee trudged into the shelter at the
bus stop that evening. Sitting heavily on the bench, she stared at a muddy
gutter, and wondered when things would ever change. So much had been wrong;
she felt she was slowly being crushed inside. The physical therapy after
the auto accident was only supposed to be for a couple weeks. The weeks
had stretched to months, and although she could walk now, she still fought
for balance on her steps, and the numbing ache still robbed her of sleep
most nights. Her broken collarbone still ached too, when it rained, like
today. Her stomach growled, and she grimaced at the thought of food. All
the medications were ruining her appetite. She was so tired of being sick.
So tired of being tired. Amee sat lost in thought, as the rain dripped
steadily off the awning.

Suddenly, Amee was aware of white service shoes in front of her line of
vision. Startled, she followed the sturdy uniform-clad legs up to see
pudgy tan hands clasped around an ample waist within a bright blue scrub
shirt. She looked up into a pair of crinkled-rimmed kind brown eyes, and
realized a woman was speaking to her.

"Ya all right, honey?" she was saying. Without warning, Amee burst into
tears. In seconds, the woman had stepped close, and pulled Amee's head to
her ample bosom, and held her quietly close. The moment passed, and Amee
straightened up, apologizing profusely through her tears.

"Stop Amee," said the soft voice. "God knows when we're drowning, and need
His touch. The sun will come out again for you." Gently she kissed Amee's
forehead, and turned to walk away.

"Wait!" cried Amee, "How did you know my name?!"

"God knows all His children by name, child."

As Amee blinked in astonishment, the bus arrived, blocking her view. As
she stood up, shaking her head, the voice came again. At the same moment
as the breaking sunbeams. In the mist steaming off the pavement, Amee
distinctly heard, "He knows you needed to be held in His arms, for just a
moment. To hear His heartbeat. He sent me to wrap you in it today."

What a great encouragement it should be to every believer to know that the
God who created the universe, the sun, the moon and the stars cares so
much about you that He has carved your name on the palms of His hand. He
loves you just as you are and wants you to know that even though troubles
may come to you; Joy will come in the morning. (Isaiah 49:16) (Psalm 71:19-21)

Let this story be a simple reminder that God is always with you regardless
of the storms of life, and wants you to know that the sun will rise again
upon your life and overshadow every obstacle that you had to go through.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 34:6-9 "I cried out to the Lord in my suffering, and He heard me. He
set me free from all my fears. For the angel of the Lord guards all who
fear Him, and he rescues them. Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the
joys of those who trust in Him! Let the Lord's people show Him reverence,
for those who honor Him will have all they need."

Joshua 1:9 "I command you-be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or
discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."

Psalm 28:6-8 "Praise the Lord! For He has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord
is my strength, my shield from every danger. I trust in Him with all my
heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs
of thanksgiving. The Lord protects His people and gives victory to His
anointed king."

Psalm 30:1-5 "I will praise you, Lord, for you have rescued me. You refused
to let my enemies triumph over me. O Lord my God, I cried out to you for
help, and you restored my health. You brought me up from the grave, O Lord.
You kept me from falling into the pit of death. Sing to the Lord, all you
godly ones! Praise His holy name. His anger lasts for a moment, but His
favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may go on all night, but joy comes with
the morning."
