566th -- Margarete's Angel


It should comfort our hearts to know that God is with us at all times to
strengthen us, protect us, and lift us up when we are feeling low. We must
remember that God is powerful and mighty and will move mountains to keep us
safe and protected. Never believe the lie that God does not care about you
because the truth is He loves you with an everlasting love and has given 
His angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways protected. Know 
that you are greatly loved by God and even in the times when He may seem 
distant, the Lord is closer to you than your next breath. Praise God for
such love. (Isaiah 43:2-3) (Jeremiah 31:3) (Psalm 91:9-12) (Psalm 34:17-19)

I hope today's message both comforts and encourages your heart to know that
no matter what may come before you, God is able to protect you and set your
feet on solid ground where no harm can come near unto you.


Hush! My dear, lie still and slumber, Holy angels guard thy bed. Heavenly
blessings without number gently falling on thy head. Isaac Watts 1674 - 1748

Two things are in short supply ~ well, it could be a whole lot more, when
you are a college student ~ sleep, and money to go home on. Margarete was
away at college, a hard working, diligent, college student, a sophomore.

She stayed in the dormitory where sleep was a short commodity, too. Girls
being girls and studies being studies, the nights are pretty short. 

The Christmas holidays were soon approaching which meant the trip home was
in sight. But as always, college professors haven't much heart as they 
schedule tests on the last two or three days proceeding vacation. So again
sleep was hard to come by. 

Mom and Dad had sent money for the bus ride home. As soon as class was over
on that Friday Margarete made her way to the depot, loaded with luggage and
a few presents she had purchased. She bought her ticket and her choice seat
was available, the last seat in the back, next to the back door where she 
could stretch out and sleep without interruption until her destination of 
Mankato, Minnesota!

What luxury...just to stretch out. The only sounds were those of people
murmuring to each other and the tires on the highway, comforting, soothing
sounds to lull a tired college sophomore to sleep. As she slept, the bus 
motion and her tossing pushed her shoulders against the back door, then 
more of her body weight pressed against the door.

Suddenly without warning, the back door sprang open with Margarete pushed
against it. She tipped out the door, head and shoulders first, awakening 
instantly with a start to feel herself falling into the blackness of the 
night towards the hard concrete. Her first thought was, I'm about to die!
She grabbed for the door frame to catch herself but missed! She prayed a 
three word prayer, “Jesus help me!”

And to this day, she says she can almost still feel it...there was a pair
of huge hands that caught her and pushed her back into the bus!

The bus driver, when the warning light came on, brought the bus to a quick
stop and came running down the aisle to check on the problem. He came to 
Margarete and asked, “Are you all right? I can't understand how it 
happened. Did you lose anything?”

Still in shock, she answered, “No sir, no problems.”

“How did you manage to hold on and not fall out?”

“I believe I had some heavenly help.”

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Isaiah 43:2-3 “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee;
and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest 
through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle
upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour...”

Psalm 91:9-12 “Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even
the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither 
shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For He shall give His angels 
charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in
their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.”

Psalm 34:17-19 “The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth 
them out of all their troubles. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a 
broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Many are the 
afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.”

Psalm 3:4-8 “I cried unto the LORD with my voice, and He heard me out of 
His holy hill. Selah. I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD 
sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have 
set themselves against me round about. Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God: 
for Thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone; Thou hast 
broken the teeth of the ungodly. Salvation belongeth unto the LORD: Thy 
blessing is upon Thy people. Selah.”

Jeremiah 33:2-3 “Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that 
formed it, to establish it; the LORD is His name; Call unto Me, and I will
answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
