Growing up I have always been taught about God, and the bible, and the way this wonderful world of ours was created. I was taken to church when I was younger, courtesy of my grandma. And recently, now that I am older, I attend church on major holidays – although not always willingly. I have a hard time coming to terms with my own feelings on the subject of religion. I find that most people are either strong believers or they don’t believe at all and I always find that I am sitting in the middle of this spectrum. I figure that if I believe in demons, which I do, then by default I have to believe in the positive aspect as well. The problem that I always encounter though is that my demons seem to be much easier to see then angels and miracles. I wish it were different, but for me this has always been the case.
I think the reason that demons are so much easier to spot is because they are affiliated with bad days, and bad experiences. I believe that when something goes wrong in our lives we look for an outlet on which we can blame it on. Putting the blame onto someone or something else, even if it is a spirit, makes us feel slightly better about our situations – or at least it does for me. Meanwhile when something good happens in my life, I don’t thank God or praise my angels, I just simply conclude that I had a good day. This is wrong. If I am going to support one, then I should support the other, and if I am really only going to support one then I should support God and everything good in this world. But like I mentioned prior I am still struggling on where exactly my beliefs lie.
I was always under the impression that demons, the devil, God and angels were spirits that you could not see. You had to believe in them and you had to support them, but you would never be able to physically see or touch them – at least not in this life. As a writer, with a creative mind, I can understand and grasp the concept of this but some days I don’t always believe. Until I began to think of it in a different light.
What if angels were real people? What if you were able to see, talk to, touch, and love an angel every single day and you didn’t even realize it because you didn’t believe in that? What if God sent you an angel to protect you, guide you, and love you unconditionally? What if angels weren’t really spirits at all, but instead they were disguised as moms.
I had a hard time grasping the concept of God and angels until I realized that I had my very own angel. It’s hard to not believe in something when you get to experience angels first hand, every single day. I am fortunate enough to experience and embrace this wonderful gift from God.
God Sent Us Moms.
I am lucky enough to call my mom my best friend. We got in very few fights growing up and now that I am older our relationship has grown into something that I didn’t even know was possible. She has been my protector before I was even me and she still is to this very day. I know that my mom would give up anything for me in a heartbeat. I know that she would take a bullet for me. I know that with her around I will never have to face anything that is too unbearable by myself.
Luke 4:11 > “He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against stone”
My mom has always been my biggest supporter, and I know that no matter what and no matter who I cross paths with, she always will be. She is always the first person I call after I get a mark back at school. The very first person that I read every single thing I write to. She willingly edits and proof reads every single assignment that I have ever handed in. She supports me in every single hobby that I have ever dared to try. She will sit at the barn for hours to watch me fuss over my horse, but more importantly she will listen to me ramble on for hours on end after I’ve had a good ride. It doesn’t matter what the topic is, or what the task is that I am trying to accomplish, I know that I have my mom by my side routing for me. She stands back and lets me make my own mistakes, but I know that she will always be there to catch me when I fall. She no longer pushes me in any direction but simply waits and guides me if I ask.
Psalms 91:11 > “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.”
My mom loves me unconditionally. She showed me what it is like to love someone more than anything else in the world. She showed me how to love with all of her heart even when I am being a brat. She taught me how to treat people, how to act, and how to love everyone and everything around me so that I can make this world a better place.
John 13:34 > “A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another
My mom is the best mom in the world. I know that this statement may be considered a little bias, but it’s true. I was blessed with the most selfless, caring, loving, and understanding mother that anyone could ever asked for. She made me into the women I am today and without her constant guidance and love I honestly don’t know where I would be, or who I would be for that matter. Sometimes I seriously question if I believe in God and the bible, but then I look at my mom and I know that I wasn’t given that women by chance, but instead I got my mom because she is exactly who I needed to become the person I am today.
I have an amazing relationship with my mom. I always have. And honestly there are days when I feel so sorry for children who don’t have what I have. I wouldn’t trade my life for anything in the world and I know that is because of the cards that I was dealt. Somedays my life is pretty rough, but even my worst days aren’t that bad because of the mom that God gave me.
Mom, for years I have been searching to find the perfect words to tell you how thankful and lucky I am to have you. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find the perfect sentence to summarize just how much you mean to me, and honestly I don’t think I’ll ever be able to. You have been my role model for as long as I can remember and everyday you just inspire me more. I work everyday to become a women that you are proud of and every time I feel like quitting I know that because of you I never will. You give me all the love and support that a little girl could ever need and I love you so much. Thank you for always being in my corner. Thank you for never giving up on me. Thank you for helping me believe in God and angels and everything good and magical in this world.
Happy mothers day to all the moms out there, but especially to my mom because she will always be my number one.
