Parents are often forced to correct their child that is doing something foolish or dangerous with a stern and commanding voice of “GET OVER HERE NOW!” to keep their child safe. In my incident it was an Angel commanding me like a stern parent.
It was Winter 1981, I was five years old and in a mall in Southern California with my parents and siblings. I wound up getting separated from them. I was very frightened for two reasons, being separated from my parents and looking for them the second reason was the kidnapping of Adam Walsh was going through my head. I was wandering around, scared, looking for them. I had the not-so-bright-idea of slipping out of a door that was chained-up. I struggled to get out, then I thought I would walk around the outside of the mall until I found them. That was a bad idea. As soon as I got outside, I heard fighting, drinking, beer bottles breaking.
Then I heard a very stern and commanding voice come out of the darkness “GET. BACK. INSIDE. NOW!”, Like this invisible person was an inch from my ear. I didn’t hesitate to struggle my way back in, which was much easier.
As I wander around the mall some more, I ran into a police detective and his wife who took me to security, and my family was already there waiting for me.
Psalm 91:11 “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.”
