I had in mind the story of Elijah being encouraged and strengthened by a heavenly messenger (an angel of the Lord) from I Kings when I created this series. Elijah has fled to the desert after overseeing the killing of Baal’s prophets in Israel, an act that has enraged Queen Jezebel. He is afraid, filled with despair and asks to die. God sees him there lying under the broom tree comes to him at his lowest moment.
I learned many of the great Christian hymns as a child. As an adult now, many of those songs and bits of lyrics are a comfort and a reminder to me of how God does not leave us or forsake us — even now His angels watch over us.
