So, as you know if you've read my story, my husband and I fell in love with the name Gabriel before ever realizing that he would actually be an angel. This was the first time in our story that I truly felt the presence of God. I don't think that it is coincidence. I don't think it is chance. I think it was God.
During a bible study a few weeks ago I found out that everytime the angel Gabriel appeared to someone, he was coming with "good news." Gabriel was an angel. Sent from God. To bring good news to those of us on Earth. I love that.
Well, just a few moments ago, I concluded the book "Holding onto Hope" which I've talked about before. The author had two children pass away, a daughter named Hope and a son named Gabriel. They chose his name, knowing he would pass away, based on this scripture:
As I was praying, Gabriel, whom I had seen in the earlier vision, came swiftly to me at the time of the evening sacrifice. He explained to me, "Daniel, I have come here to give you insight and understanding." Daniel 9:21-22
The angel Gabriel came to Daniel to give him insight and understanding. My eyes flooded with tears as soon as I read that. How amazing. How blessed I am to have had my very own Gabriel, who was only in our lives a short time, but who came with such a powerful message. Thank you...
