A few weeks ago my mom shared a video with me that showed a practical understanding of how our Guardian Angel works sometimes. This video shows a man, who is symbolic of a Guardian Angel, and in the video it looks like he is just causing chaos. He pushes one person into another…but then we see a car crash right in the spot they used to be standing in. Another time he trips a boy chasing a ball…but then we see a bus drive by really fast where the ball rolled onto the street. This really came into perspective for me this weekend.
I was in a car accident where I was T-boned by another car while I was driving through an intersection. I got hit just past my back-passenger door, which caused me to spin and resulted in my car being totaled.
After the shock wore off and I reflected on it a bit more, instantly this image of my Guardian Angel came into my mind. If I was hit just a little bit earlier, literally a foot or so closer to the middle of my car, I most likely would’ve landed in the hospital. That short difference was all it took and it would’ve completely changed the result. Praise be to God both me and the other driver were able to walk away with no major injuries. But I believe with EVERY BONE IN MY BODY that my Guardian Angel pushed my car forward enough that even thought I was still hit, I was able to walk away still with no major injuries.
My dear sisters, sometimes we forget about our Guardian Angels. We have this prayer that sometimes seems like a silly childlike poem. The more I started learning about the power of Guardian Angels, the more I started bringing him into every aspect of my own life. I started studying with him, making decisions with him, sending him to watch over certain situations…and I started praying for him to drive with me every time I got into my car.
I encourage you all to start your day with your Guardian Angel, and go through every aspect of your day with him. This may seem like a simple prayer…but it has more power than we can imagine. Sometimes we won’t always understand it, and sometimes it might seem like we get stuck in a messy situation. But if we take a moment to reflect, it can amaze you how many times your Guardian Angel literally will push you out of the line of danger.
Angel of God My guardian dear To Whom His love Commits me here Ever this day Be at my side To light and guard To rule and guide. Amen
