In many previous posts, your Angels have been giving you reasons to trust them and their divine guidance. They know you best and they have your best interests in mind. You cannot know this, though, unless you begin to trust them in the daily affairs of your life. Involving them in this way can lead you to interesting experiences, as I discovered within the past 18 hours. It started in this way:

Having gone to bed at 2:30 am after a grueling day at work, I was in deep slumber when the phone rang at 3:00 am. It was my sister, commanding me to call one of our relatives in Hungary. She would not say why, just kept repeating, “Call Brian”. Grumbling, I groggily called Brian in Hungary (it was morning there). Cheerily he informed me that he wanted us to join him and his father for four days at Thanksgiving in New Orleans. He would pay our way entirely: airfare, lodging, car, meals. I looked at the phone in a stupor, with a sinking heart, realizing that I was scheduled to work for the three days after Thanksgiving and good luck trying to find someone to cover for those days. Negative thinking to the max. I said as much to Brian, apologetically, but with regret, thinking that this would never work. Something else took over my brain, though, something light and positive. It said, “I’m a little sleepy, Brian, so let me get back to you in the morning after I’ve had a chance to talk to my sister and look at my schedule.” Brian was not put off by this, just kept tempting me with how much fun we would have, that we would stay in the French Quarter, and so on. In other words, preaching to the converted. I hung up the phone and went back to bed, with visions of mufalatas, beignets, and chicory coffee dancing in my head.

After a fevered night’s sleep, with all of this temptation before me and seemingly no way to indulge it, I awoke and consulted with my sister. She had the feeling that things would go well and that my Angels would find coverage for me for those three days. After a few bad moments, I told my Angels that whatever they decided was all right with me, that my will was theirs and to make my will theirs. With that, I put the matter out of my mind and went to work.

There, the matter had so slipped my mind that it was off the radar. Somehow my mind returned to the subject, anyway. I offered extra work to many people, without success. On a whim, I called my sister to say that I would be available to go to New Orleans after all, if she would so inform Brian. She laughed; she shrieked; we celebrated on the phone, anticipating the fun we would have in New Orleans on an all-expenses paid trip. We both felt as if we were princesses in wonderland, with such good fortune before us. Keep in mind, though, that I still hadn’t found coverage for those three naughty little days after Thanksgiving. But, I was acting as if this mini-vacation would actually occur. Then, suddenly, one of the per diem nurses appeared before me. I offered her those days and she accepted! In a heartbeat, my desire to participate in this adventure was realized, going from earlier despair to ecstasy that someone would actually work for me. All because I trusted those crafty Angels. Now, I just have to decide what to pack…..

Let us examine this little story for all of those vital elements which made for success:

The offer came quickly and suddenly, out of the blue—this is a hallmark of the movement of the Holy Spirit. An opportunity will appear before you quickly, an offer you can accept because you are ready for success at every moment, because you are accustomed to trusting your Angels.

You recognize the opportunity because you have experience trusting your Angels and they have given you solid advice in the past.

You act as if the opportunity is truly yours, trusting that your Angels will work out the details. It was a real act of faith for me to instruct my sister to contact Brian with a “yea” when I had not yet found coverage. I decided, though, to trust my Angels. I acted as if I had those days off and, within the space of a few minutes, did, indeed, have those days off.

You move through the fear and doubt; you act in spite of it. Yes, I was the teensiest bit nervous that no one would work for me, but I acted in spite of that fear and my faith was rewarded.

Of course, this is the advanced trust in Angels. I have spent much time listening to them in the small things that seemed to make no sense: take your umbrella, even though it looks like no rain is coming your way; buy the green peppers, even though you think you don’t need them; turn down a different road than you normally go; drive to Wal-Mart even if you can’t come up with a reason; call your friend when you get the push to contact her, and so on. These little acts of trust on your part will put you in a position to be ready for instantaneous success when something really big comes along, such as an all-expense paid trip to New Orleans for a long weekend, or that dreamboat that you’ve been drooling over, or that new red Porsche with the turbo drive. Keep at it, my dear and faithful readers. Keep listening to your Angels, follow their advice, especially in the small things, so that you, too, will reap their rewards, those rewards that they have specifically selected for you.
