Renewing Your Mind: Angels and Addiction

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

Addiction is a widespread issue in our society. We’re all prone to developing addictions, because we’re all tempted to seek fulfillment in someone or something else besides God. The list of what we can become addicted to is long: food, sex, gambling, alcohol, shopping, cigarettes, work, the Internet, etc.

I used to silently judge people who got drunk, smugly taking pride in the fact that I barely drank any alcohol at all. But then I realized that I had just as much of a problem with compulsively eating chocolate. None of us is immune to falling into addictive behavior. We all have to choose, day by day, to devote ourselves more to God than to anything or anyone else.

Angels, who are God’s messengers, are valuable allies to have in the fight against addiction. That’s why I’m writing a series on angels and addiction for About.com, covering such addictions as pornographyfood, and alcohol and other drugs. Hope you find the articles helpful! And if God or one of his angels have helped you recover from an addiction, please send me your miracle story or angel story to post on the site to inspire others.

Thanks, and Blessings,

Whitney

Renewing Your Mind: Body, Mind, and Spirit Connections

Wednesday, April 6th, 2016

Emotional stress can lead to physical pain. The body, mind, and spirit are connected in ways that affect each other when there’s a problem with one part of the system. Fortunately, the angels who answer our prayers are also closely connected, so when we pray about a health issue, God may send us help from different angels working together. The archangels Michael and Raphael often join forces in healing work, since Michael is a master of empowering us to overcome fear (which causes stress) and Raphael is an expert at sending us guidance for the physical healing process.

I discovered how well Michael and Raphael work together when I woke up with pain in my jaw during a particularly stressful season in my life. While sleeping, I had been grinding my teeth because of anxiety caused by stress, putting pressure on my jaw and causing the pain in the process. I asked God to assign both Michael and Raphael to help me. Later, not only did my jaw feel better, but my mind was more at peace, as well.

How can angels help you with your own health right now?

If you’ve ever had an angel answer a prayer about your health, consider sharing your story about the experience on the About.com angels and miracles site to help others.

Blessings,
