Right now someone is staring at you…. well not with human eyes, angelic eyes! Remember him? He’s your guardian angel!
I think often people forget about their guardian angels because they have “better” things to do. They don’t spend any time with them because maybe they don’t talk, maybe they’re not fun, and maybe you just aren’t close right now. But I’m telling you, if you give your guardian angel a chance, I promise you, he won’t let you down. So who is he? What are the benefits? Is it really him, or have I just lost it and am talking to myself? Well, hopefully this article can help with these questions.
Firstly, God chose a pure, spotless angel to be your guardian and protector in life. Every minute of every day, he’s always making sure if you’re OK. Remember when you almost walked into traffic and suddenly stopped walking, or dodged a ball that was flying right into your face by the skin of your teeth? Yes…. that was him! He cares about you so much, is always praying for you, and doesn’t take his eyes off of you at any moment in the night. He is the closest friend in your life that God has freely given to you, yet we don’t stop and say hello.
Secondly, he was given to you, not just as a protector, but as a friend. We constantly forget that there is a whole other world out there watching and praying for us, and our angel has been put here to be a piece of the next life… right now! I bet yours is just counting the days when he can slowly show you the goodness of heaven. In little bits you can begin to think of the things of heaven – you can almost feel what it will be like in the next life – that’s him whispering to you!
Thirdly, guardian angels aren’t just there praying and protecting, but he wants to have fun with you! Excited? Go share it with him! He’ll probably be more excited than you! It’s always more fun to do things with a friend, especially when it comes to striving to go to heaven, and he’s a friend who never leaves.
Finally, he has been put here to be our intercessor. He can take our prayers and offer them to God in a purer way. Or even better, he can purify them, give them to Our Lady, and she can purify them again, and then give them to God, just like a prayer filter. All this is waiting for you, it’s actually already here. But you first have to begin. It takes a little while before you and your guardian angel can form a lasting bond, instead of him just praying and watching over you on his own. Just speak with him, pray to him, think of him, love him!
….. Well go on! Say hello!
