My Angel’s Name Is Jenny!

“Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.”
Matthew 18:10 (NKJV)

I was driving up the M1 on the way to our annual GCI Denominational Conference for the UK and Europe. It happened in such a flash as I pulled even with a lorry. It was a left-hand drive lorry and he didn’t see my little silver car on the silvery road in the rain. So easy to do. He moved over into my lane and I ended up hurtling into the central reservation, bouncing off and in a flash was across the four lanes into the barrier on the other side before coming to a stop.

I can only believe that God protected me and my two passengers, because we survived with no broken bones, no one paralyzed or blinded, no blood shed and, although we are severely bruised and sore, are recovering well. I wonder how many times God has protected me without my even knowing? When I go on a plane I pray on take-off for blessing and protection, and I pray on landing with thanksgiving, but I admit I do not say a prayer every time I get into a car!

In Psalm 91 King David says “Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place…He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways, in their hands they shall bear you up…” (verses 9-11). In my case on that traumatic occasion, as my car came to a halt, the car door opened and my angel, Jenny, appeared in front of me saying, “Don’t move, I am an A & E nurse!” What are the chances of that? Jenny assessed our situation while the Emergency Services arrived. She was wonderful and I thank God and bless her.

The Emergency Services were also wonderful, kind and efficient. How many of us remember to thank God for them and ask God to bless and protect them in their crucial service? They cut the doors and roof off of my car (it is now a convertible!) to get us out safely. Two of us were strapped onto stretchers and sent by ambulance to hospital where within half an hour I was in a CT Scanner and then released when they saw no broken bones or significant injuries. How many of us remember to thank God and pray for our caring and overworked NHS?!

The words of the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 4:7-9 came to me as I walked out of the hospital: “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair…struck down, but not destroyed,” thanks be to God!

O God, our protector, our Saviour, our healer, thank you so much for your mercy and the angels you send to protect us. In Jesus’ name.
