I have issues with guardian angles. A few years ago there was a young man reaching for a fly ball at a baseball game and went over the rail. At the last second he turned and landed on his back instead of his head....Thank you, Guardian Angles was the headline! About the same time a local family came home from Church...Dad taught Sunday school...Mom worked in the nursary. The family 2 older children and a baby arrived home. Older children I am sure with questions or requests of mom and dad. Each thought the other had taken the baby and put her in her room for a nap...but she was left in the car. A hour later mom goes to check on her and she is not in her room. The baby was dead in the hot car....where was that gaurdian angle...at the baseball game??? All it would have taken was a tap on the shoulder "hey, check the car".......NO ONE should have to live with something like that. I know we are not to know the reasons....but I'm still asking....WHY??
In the Bible it says time after time that the voice of GOD is that of the Holy Spirit (aka Holy Ghost) which is a still small voice. The Holy Ghost might also be described as your guardian angel, there is one assigned to every individual on the face of the earth.
Sometimes that voice is nothing more than a discomfort that something is wrong or not right, other times it can actually be a voice in your head. But a person must be in tune with the spirit enough to heed or hear these promptings. The same is true when we seek God's guidance through prayer, to which the answer may be a stupor of thought (can't concentrate on the object of prayer). The stupor of thought is a NO answer.
God allows things to happen to us because that was the contract, free will.
When we came to this earth from our "preexistence" to this existence, we came with the full understanding of several things.
1. We have free Choice in our actions and we must live with the consequences of those actions.
2. He will provide guidance if we ask for it, but we must be listening for the answer (which can be a feeling or premonition).
3. If we violate his commandments we must suffer the punishment of such transgression. Just as in our justice system the is a prescribed punishment for violating each law so it is with God's commandments.
4. The same is true when we follow his laws, there is a reward although it might be so subtle that it is unrecognized, just like the guidance from our guardian angles.
5. If we adapt conduct that is beneficial to our fellow man we receive rewards of Happyness, if we adapt a course of action detrimental to our fellow man, we reap sorrow and woe.
I will restate my testimony concerning my guardian angel.
The summer I turned six my family lived on a farm, we shared the house with the owners of the farm. They lived in the downstairs and we lived in the upstairs sharing the kitchen and bathroom. On one bright sunny day the owners wife was in the kitchen canning vegetables from the guardian. My family was preparing to do the afternoon milking of the cows. I had to use the bathroom in the worst way, the tie it in a knot and still can't hold it kind of worst way, so I lit out for the house.
As i threw open the screen door of the back porch and reached for the back door into the kitchen, I heard my name called in an urgent tone. I stopped and yelled, "What?" I looked back towards the barn and saw my father entering the milkhouse to get the milking equipment ready and my older brother and my mother disappearing around the side of the bar, going the herd the cows in from the pasture for milking, no one was looking my way as if they had called me. I reached for the door again, and again I heard my name called. I yelled,"What?" a second time, but when I looked their was no one in sight.
I reached for the door knob a third time and opened the door. The Kitchen was such that the stove (an old 4 burner wood stove) was one once side of the door next to the kitchen table, and the counters, cabinets, and sink were on the other side of the door. Anyone carrying something from sink to stove or from stove to sink had to walk in front of the door.
As I entered the Kitchen the owners wife was propping a hot canning kettle on the edge of the counter, she had tears in her eyes. She said to me, "When I heard you come up to the porch I prayed to God. I had this kettle in my hands in front of the door and you would have been scalded to death if you had barged in like you usually do."
That was the first of 8 verbal warnings from my guardian angle, each prompting was a warning of danger. I disregarded 2 of those promptings and that's why I'm a disabled police officer today. If I had not charged in to do my duty but had headed his warning things might be a lot different today.
