My Guardian Angel

As we walk on the path- the path of life and death, there is a person who draws us towards life. He walks with us through our sorrows and joys. He guards us against every evil deed. We can’t feel or touch him but we know he is with us, showing his power over evils.

“For neither herb nor poultice cured them, but it was your word, O Lord that heals all people”
-Wisdom 16:12

Our life changed in a blink of an eye when we were at a birthday party and our little baby got her first seizure. We called 911 and we were taken to the ER.

Even though the closest church was about 40 minutes each way, I made it a point to go for Mass at least once a week. However, without the backing of the community, my personal prayer time and my spiritual life, in general, began to stagnate. My spiritual life began looking somewhat like my surroundings: dry and without much life.

Lenten Reflections | Jesus is laid in the tomb

How could I allow myself to live paralyzed by all the fears, insecurities and areas of shame that weighed me down that did not come from God? I knew that as long as those unwanted areas in my life had control and power over me, I could not be ‘fully alive’ and live in the freedom that God intended me to have.
