It was about 2:00 a.m. one morning and I couldn’t sleep, so I turned on the TV. It happened to be on a Christian broadcasting station and there was a young woman singing. She had a beautiful voice and beautiful personality as well.
When she finished her song she began to talk about an experience she had with her young song, who was only three years old at the time. She related how he began to have bad dreams which eventually turned into night terrors. This young mother shared how hard it was for her precious little boy suffering such fear and torment from these horrible nightmares. Her heart ached for him and she didn’t know what to do.
She taught him Bible verses hoping this would alleviate the night terrors. She prayed with him before he went to sleep and then one night she remembered a little song her mother had taught her. She said the song had brought her much comfort as a child, so she decided to teach it to him.
The song was about angels. I can’t remember all the words but it went something like this: “Angels are in front of me, up above me, behind me, they’re all around me…”
As I listened to her sing this heavenly little medley, it literally gave me chills and brought comfort to me as well. She went to explain that after she taught her young son this song he began to sing it all the time, even in the day time while playing. The night terrors soon left him and never bothered him again.
Thank God for His ministering angels! The next time you feel disturbed, worried, fearful and cannot sleep, just remember His angels are all around you too.
Blessings and sweet dreams,
