My Personal Angel
Helen Dowd

Angels have charge over the children of God.

Psalm 34:7 "The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them."

Psalm 91:11-"For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
They shall bear thee up, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone."

Daniel 6:22 "My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, that they have not hurt me."

Matthew 18:10 "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you,
That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven."

Sometimes we just need assurance that God's angel is looking after us.
Sometimes we just need to know that we have a Personal Angel.

My Personal Angel

There's an angel on my shoulder.
He guides my steps aright.
He's with me in the daytime;
He comforts me at night.
There's not a thing that happens
that escapes his watchful sight.
He is my guardian angel.
He makes the dark things bright.

I've an angel on my shoulder.
He, my stress does nullify.
He helps me when I falter.
He hears my weary sigh.
He dries up all my teardrops,
for he sees me when I cry.
He's an angel sent from heaven.
He will always be close by.

I've an angel on my shoulder
who can lift me from despair.
There is not a single secret
that with him I cannot share.
I am glad my shoulder angel
is with me everywhere:
He's a little bit of heaven
to remind me of God's care.

I've an angel on my shoulder.
He's an angel of good cheer.
Whenever I'm in trouble,
He whispers in my ear.
He gives me words of comfort,
Words that melt away my fear.
He is my personal angel.
He stays with me through the year.

But angels are not to be worshipped.

Revelation 22:8-9 "Now I, John saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw,
I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things…
Then he said to me, 'See that you do not do that.
For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets,
and of those who keep the words of this book.
Worship God.'"–
