Angels In Our Midsts (Part 2)

Continuation of Angels in Our Midsts

The cause of the accident isn’t known yet, although a probable cause could be a derailment due to something being placed on the lines.

She realizes now, she lives because of a broken shoe. She didn’t make it to work on time, but she did make it to work.

Just so you know; this isn’t a true story. It’s a hypothetical situation. Imagine for a moment though, how you would feel had you been in this situation, realizing just how close you had come to a potentially gruesome end. What would be going through your mind as you sat, listening to the radio that evening? Would you be simply thanking your lucky stars, your shoe broke when it did? Or would you think there was more to it than that? If you would prefer to thank your lucky stars, to put everything down to coincidence, then that’s your prerogative, but consider this… Is it not feasible that it just wasn’t your time; that some sort of divine intervention was working in your favor? Do you believe in angels, the possibility that we are not alone, that there are angels out there living beside us, watching out for us, protecting us because they know our time is not yet in? I do!

I believe with all my heart, we share this world with beings from another realm. As a child, I was deadly ill, wasn’t expected to reach my teens. I was blind and paralyzed down my left-hand side, spent a long time in hospital. I lived, knowing death might take me early. My teenage years disappeared in drugs and drink and I have very little memory of that time. And yet here I am; that world so far behind me, still alive. I guess it just wasn’t my time. Maybe I still had something to do, still have something to do. It could be as simple as me fathering my son, or me writing some books, or me just writing to you. It doesn’t have to be huge and it’s all quite simple: my time isn’t up.

It’s all rather open-ended though. I mean, if we all have an angel, why do so many people die in such terrible ways? I can’t answer that question; it’s not for me to question the credibility of God. Maybe though, I can offer my thoughts on the matter. Angels are synonymous with the Holy Bible and the Holy Bible is synonymous with God. If we can entertain the idea of there being angels of God on this planet, beings that are designed to protect us, is it not then possible to entertain the idea of there being, fallen angels, beings that are designed to harm us? We must also ask ourselves, what angels and fallen angels are. Do they take the form of humanity or are they invisible to human eyes? Again, I cannot give answers, only ignite further thought. Let us suppose there are both visible and invisible forms. Could Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King or Gandhi have been visible angels? Or could Genghis Khan, Pol Pot or Hitler have been visible fallen angels?

All I know is that we will all discover the answers as we pass over from this world, to the next. We are all here for a reason, put here by God, for better or for worse. I believe every child is born with a guardian angel, a divine protector. Things happen along the road of life though. Perhaps some of us subconsciously reject help, or possibly, the angel is destroyed by a fallen angel, leaving the subject at the mercy of bad tidings.

In Hebrews 13:2 it reads: “Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so; some people have entertained angels without knowing it.”

Wishing you a great day!

    As I read this, Hebrews 13:2 came to mind throughout it. We could be that angel of protection to someone. You give great questions in this writing.. some to really ponder over. 🙂

      Trudy, I agree that Gavin has given many questions to ponder over.

      I love this story and Gavin’s deep thoughts for all of us to ponder!

    Very good story, Gavin. There are times when angels only dare tread what gets accomplished. My father called them, “Jesus miracles.”
