Can angels know our thoughts?

Marianne Lorraine Trouv Fsp Pauline Books and Media ePub

What Else Do We Know About the Angels?

“Just so, I tell you, there is joy

in the presence of the angels of God

over one sinner who repents.”

— Luke 15:10

Thinking About Angels

It’s hard to think about the angels because we can’t see them. We know by our faith that they exist because God created them. But where exactly do they fit into the whole scheme of things? If our faith didn’t tell us that angels exist, we might have guessed it by thinking about the created world.

Imagine going for a walk in the woods. As you walk along a shaded trail, you’re bound to see any number of rocks. The rocks exist but they aren’t alive. As you continue on the trail, you’ll see various types of plants: ferns, weeds, flowers, and trees. Unlike rocks, the plants are alive. They grow and require nutrients. The leaves of the plants bend toward the sun, straining to get the light they need.

Going farther into the woods, you will probably see different types of animals: birds, chipmunks, squirrels, foxes, deer, or even bears. Like plants, they are alive, but unlike plants, they can move around freely and can see, hear, eat, and bark, growl, chirp, or make other sounds. Some even communicate with one another in certain ways.

4. Relaxation and Activity: The Importance of a Healthy Lifestyle

Smith, Melissa Diane Basic Health Publications ePub


Diabetes is not just a diet-related disease; its a lifestyle-related disease. No matter how careful you may be with your diet, chronic, excessive stress and lack of physical activity can sabotage your best intentions to improve your health. Relaxation through stress reduction and moving your muscles through physical activity also play vital roles in preventing and reversing weight gain and diabetes.

Our bodies have an impressive, intricate system of hormonal regulators that give us extra energy to respond to short-term, emergency stress situations. When the fight or flight stress response is activated, adrenaline and cortisol hormone levels rise, together telling the body to release glucose and fat (a concentrated fuel) into the bloodstream for extra energy. This works wonderfully well when were running away from dangerous situations, such as a potential attacker or a ferocious animal.

Cortisol A hormone secreted during times of stress to raise blood sugar and blood fat levels, which can promote abdominal weight gain over time.
