Why hello there saints!
I am hoping you are doing well ! Today I wanted to share something with you that I’ve been thinking about for some time now.
Just to give you a little insight before we get started, I must confess that I am a sucker for jewelry that has anything to do with my faith in Jesus. I don’t know what it is, and I’m sure it is extremely corny to most; but It’s alright by me! However, for some time I struggled with wearing/buying cross jewelry for some time because of the misuse and misinterpretation of the cross in fashion. I came to understand that wearing a cross on my finger or around my neck doesn’t always JUST justify my faith. It can be seen as simply a trend follow or something else. Also, whenever I wear crosses I only looked at the life giving aspect of the cross, and I seemed to neglect that it also signifies death! HMMM I still wear my crosses, but must remember that not only does it give life; it means I have died with Christ — and must strive to do so daily — The harder part of following Christ ! hmmm
Moving on, aside from the cross I always tend to fall for jewelry that has anything to do with what I believe in as I mentioned; hence the angel wings !
I got this necklace from forever 21 and find the significance so relevant in my life today. Lately, at every corner I turn and at every avenue that something goes slightly off plan, I find that I am explicitly shielded and protected. God has absolute control over everything I know, but I wondered if he sends his angels sometimes to intercede in specific situations. One day in heaven, the bible says that we will judge angels; therefore Jesus must utilize his heavenly hosts more than we may imagine… RIGHT?!
Yes!!! In the bible Christ sent an angel to lead the Israelites through the desert in Exodus [Exodus 23:20-23] and to provide food for Elijah in 1Kings [1Kings19:5-8]. So yes, the ultimate conclusion I wanted to draw is that sometimes God DOES use angels to protect and keep us …. So in those moments where God directly keeps me from harm or turns an unfortunate situation into a victory, I have to wonder if an angel has any hand in it! Not to worship angels, or not for an angel’s glory, but just simply to acknowledge the things of heaven as good! I’m all about anything that is Jesus Christ GOOD; hence my angel wings necklace and this post!
Thanks for reading 🙂 Be Blessed!
