Two traveling angels stopped to
spend the night in the home of a
wealthy family. The family was
rude and refused to let the
angels stay in the mansion's
guest
room. Instead the angels were
given a small space in the cold
basement.
As they made their bed on the
hard floor, the older angel saw a
hole in the wall and repaired it.

When the younger angel asked why,
the older angel replied,
"Things aren't always what they
seem."

The next night the pair came to
rest at the house of a very
poor, but very hospitable farmer
and his wife. After sharing
what little food they had the
couple let the angels sleep in
their
bed where they could have a good
night's rest. When the sun came
up
the next morning the angels found
the farmer
and his wife in tears. Their
only cow, whose milk had been
their sole
income, lay dead in the field.

The younger angel was infuriated
and asked the older angel how
could you have let this happen?

The first man had everything, yet
you helped him, she accused.
The second family had little but
was willing to share everything,
and you let the cow die. "Things
aren't always what they seem,"
the older angel replied.

"When we stayed in the basement of
the mansion, I noticed there
was gold stored in that hole in
the
wall. Since the owner was so
obsessed with greed and unwilling
to share his good fortune,
I sealed the wall so he wouldn't
find it."

"Then last night as we slept in
the
farmers bed, the
angel of death came for his wife.
I gave him the cow instead.
Things aren't always what they
seem."

Sometimes that is exactly what
happens when things don't turn
out the way they should. If you
have faith, you just need to
trust that every outcome is
always to
your advantage. You might not
know it until some time later...

Psalm 91

1He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 3Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 4He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 5Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 6Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 8Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
9Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 10There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
