God sent His angels

From the November 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

During one of the most challenging times of my life, God’s angels were at hand, proving the truth in the following words of Hymn 9 in the Christian Science Hymnal: 

He knows the angels that you need, 
And sends them to your side, 
To comfort, guard and guide. 
(Violet Hay, © CSBD)

In Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, Mary Baker Eddy defines angels in part as “God’s thoughts passing to man; spiritual intuitions, pure and perfect” (p. 581). Sometimes these angels come to us through people who, having received their own messages from God, are then prompted to help us.
