I was singing up into the stars late at night to God one night, and felt the Lords’ presence surround me… I had asked God to send angels to doctor up my horrible singing voice singing up into the Heavens., since I knew He is used to hearing beautiful angelic choirs.. not some croaky human voice..lol. Well, I sang from my heart all the old spiritual hymns I learned at church, and at the end of my songs, I was aware of a presence on the top of my parents roof.. above where I was standing. I instinctively looked up and saw a person standing there all covered in Light.. I knew it was a Man, and I knew that I knew Him somehow, but mentally was not sure how. I felt Him smiling at me (even though I couldn’t see His face as He was all covered in Light) so I smiled back and felt such a sense of love around me. Then He flew up off of the rooftop and into the sky ., into the Heavens, and I kept on watching Him and watching Him until He was no longer visible., then I ran into the house and told my mother how I had just seen an angel.
It was only years and years later that our Lord revealed to me that it was HIM that I saw… When we sing from our hearts, it is music to His ears. Singing from our hearts is MORE valuable to Him than a perfect physical singing voice :-).
PS: I still look up in the sky at that same area where I saw Him fly up into.. (like a comet flying upwards) to this day and wave to Heaven .. Now when I look back, I learn yet another part of our Lord’s character I had not known before.. He knew that mentally I did not know it was Him.. my spirit knew, but my mind assumed He was someone.. a guy angel., but not Jesus, who was sent by God to sing over my out of tune singing voice, because I had suggested to Him that He may want to do that since I couldn’t promise singing in tune..and He’d have to hear me belting up into the Heavens..lol! Well, Jesus KNEW that I wasn’t mentally aware it was HIM.. but He was content with that… He knew my spirit knew and that in time I would fully know even mentally. That speaks a lot to me of His patience and that He doesn’t have that compelling need to shout out , ‘it’s ME!” .. He allows us to come to that realization, even years later.. It shows His humility to me.. also that He would go out of His way to visit a basic “nobody” on this earth., and yet He is the king of Kings of all Universes! How much love and compassion and tenderness He has for the least of us all.. wow!!
