About the Poem

I wrote this poem as I reflected upon my faith. I believe that instances like these do occur and that our Angels can be someone so unexpected. God Bless!

Excellent. Even though I thought I knew how it would end, it held my attention. Sometimes it is uncanny, how the Lord uses someone else's words to encourage each of us differently. Keep writing.

I really loved your poem. It was really touching. You helped me understand that God is always there for me. He is everywhere and watches me every moment of my life. Now I know that in trouble times, God sends down my very own angel to help me. Thanks a lot. God Bless!

God Sent Me An Angel

I was walking along a country road one calm and cloudy day
Feeling down about the problems that had seemed to come my way
My pain was very great and my tears I could not hide
And was calling God to help me as I was hurting deep inside

I then thought about what I've believed and how I've rarely called
For sometimes I have wondered if God were there at all
As I lifted up my head and looked down that road a spell
I spotted someone coming - from the distance hard to tell

As he got a little closer I could then see all the signs
Of someone who'd been down that road quite a number of times
His clothes were old and dusty and his shoes were pretty worn
But there seemed a glow about him - at least I could have sworn

His face appeared real friendly as he peered up in the sky
He said, the weather is pretty calm today, hope the rain will pass us by
He first talked about the weather, but there seemed to be much more
That we both had in common, except for what we wore

He started talking about his life and the places he had been
And he spoke as if he knew me, like we were next-of-kin
From the problems that he had, to the happy times he found
Our likeness was uncanny and was becoming more profound

We had so much in common - I couldn't believe how much alike,
That I decided to tag along, we continued on our hike
He said he's from all over and his name was just like mine,
And hoped one day that we would meet as he had a real short time

I was feeling sort of baffled, as we went on with our walk
But he had held my interest, so I listened as he talked
He said, I know you're hurting - as your life has been so hard
But it seems today that you found God, where once you'd disregard

From the point that I was calling and was asking for God's hand,
Is the point where he had first appeared, as this was in Godís plan
He said to take more time for prayer - that I could bend God's ear
That He is always listening, and He is always near

God knows about my struggles but better times will be ahead,
As long as I keep believing and will no longer be mislead.
We then turned onto a sidewalk and now very close to home,
And it was then it struck me that I was suddenly now alone.

This stopped me in my tracks and I began to call his name
And it was then I understood, why to me that day he came.
I then realized God had heard me, as my Angel He then sent
To relieve me of my worries, and all my discontent.

Today I pray more often and feel blessed with my God's Love
As He was there and listening - and sent an Angel from above

The poem God Sent Me an Angel, was very touching for me and my family at a time that was very hard in our life. My children and I had just lost their father and also my husband to Lung Cancer. I was searching the internet for Christian Poems and that one really inspired us alot at a time when we were really feeling down. Thank You and continue writing and touching lives!
AnaCary
I loved this poem. As I was reading it, it sent chills throught my body. What this poem says is true. God works in misterious ways. he sends us signs but sometimes we dont see them and maybe that's why we have doubts. Always remeber God loves you and is always by your side, he hasn't left you and never will. Just have faith and believe. He does things for a reason. Remember he is the only one that will pick you up when you are down, he will do things for you no one else will al you have to do is have a little faith and pray. God bless

This poem touched my heart so deeply, that I cannot express them. It tells the story of not just one person in this world, but that of many who once was lost. Lost not only to God, but to themselves as well. I would like to thank the author for writing this poem, as well as God for giving him this special gift. Bless You All!
