Story About A Little Girl

Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you.”  Deuteronomy 31:8
This is my command–be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

Bare foot and dirty, the girl just sat and watched the people go by. She
never tried to speak; she never said a word. Many people passed, but never
did one person stop. Just so happens, the next day I decided to go back to
the park, curious if the little girl would still be there. Right in the very
spot as she was yesterday, she sat perched on high, with the saddest look in
her eyes.

Today I was to make my own move and walk over to the little girl. As we all
know, a park full of strange people is not a place for young children to play
alone. As I got closer, the little girl slightly lowered her eyes to avoid my
intent stare. I could see the shape of her back more clearly. It was
grotesquely shaped in a humped over form. I smiled to let her know it was OK,
I was there to help, to talk. I sat down beside her and opened with a simple
Hello. The little girl acted shocked and stammered a “hi” after a long stare
into my eyes. I smiled and she shyly smiled back.

We talked ’til darkness fell and the park was completely empty. Everyone was
gone and we at once were alone. I asked the girl why she was so sad. The
little girl looked at me and with a sad face said, “Because I’m different.” I
immediately said “that you are!” and smiled. The little girl acted even
sadder, she said “I know.” “Little girl,” I said, “you remind me of an
angel, sweet and innocent.” She looked at me and smiled, slowly she stood to
her feet, and said, “Really?” “Yes, dear you’re like a little guardian angel
sent to watch over all those people walking by.” She nodded her head ‘”yes”
and smiled, and with that she spread her wings and said, “I am. I’m your
guardian angel,” with a twinkle in her eye.

I was speechless, sure I was seeing things. She said, “For once you thought
of someone other than yourself, my job here is done.” Immediately I stood to
my feet and said, “Wait, so why did no one stop to help and angel?” She
looked at me and smiled, “You’re the only one who could see me, and you
believe it in your heart.” And she was gone. And with that my life was
changed dramatically. So, when you think you’re all you have, remember, your
angel is always watching over you.
