Grief, Then Comfort
Sometimes, angels will show up during periods of grief, despair, helplessness and loss and present a sense of comfort and hope. In the book, “Encountering Angels,” author Judith MacNutt talks about a young woman felt this presence after her beloved dog died. She cried night and day, and really had trouble motivating herself. At this low point, she called out to God. “It’s too much, God,” she prayed. “Please help me.” In this moment, her pain stopped suddenly, along with her tears and she felt a presence in her room. She felt a deep sense of peace. In this moment, she felt the presence of what she felt was an angel that was there to ease her suffering. God sent this angel because He knew the weight she carried as a way to ease her suffering. She knew only God could ease her suffering so quickly and completely.
