When I flew home to go to the funeral, I was there a day before the rest of the family, so I went with my mom, dad and Aunt to sit with the pastors about the service. The pastor asks my dad and Aunt if anyone would like to speak and the Holy Spirit urged me to speak up. I felt confident that the Lord would say something through me, so I volunteered. Knowing my grandparents and their faith, I believe she was proud of that funeral service.
While I was speaking, the crowd was somewhat stoic. And then there, on the right side of the church, there was this white haired man with a grin across his face and cheering me on. He was completely engaged and so encouraged me. His face just said, "Yes, that's right. That's the Lord speaking. Amen Sarah amen." He really helped me get through that while I had knotts in my stomach from being so close to my grandma and the people that were there. After the service and burial, we all had lunch that was provided by the church. I spent the rest of my time looking for that man so that I could simply thank him.
He was nowhere to be found.
I think the Lord sent an angel to encourage me while I was speaking on that day. The Bible tells us that angels can show up just like regular humans. For example, the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to tell her that she would give birth as a virgin.
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.
