Sharing God's love with the world, one heart at a time.

Angels All Around Us


I would like to share an experience with you. This is not the only spiritual event that has happened to me, but for some reason, I am feeling compelled to share this one. My faith does not require any litmus test or miracles to prove God’s existence. I have complete faith in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I also believe that God’s angels are all around us, continuously doing the will of God. Sometimes, I believe, we catch a glimpse of the angelic world. This is one of those glimpses.

When I was about 25 years old, I would drive across town to Mass early on Sunday mornings. My husband would stay with our son, who was about two years old, and very “active”.  Actually, our priest called him a “live wire”. Needless to say, I looked forward to my time alone with God.

It was a quiet morning, around 8am, and there was no traffic at all. The roads were empty. I was getting nearer to the Church and saw that the light was green up ahead. It did not just turn, it was clearly green. As I was getting closer to the light, a male voice said very sternly, STOP NOW. I didn’t even think about it. I obeyed and slammed my foot on the brake, and stopped right before the green light. A car flew through the red light. I am sure I would have been killed if I hadn’t stopped.

I have always known it was my guardian angel that protected me that morning. Really, what other explanation could there be? I have no doubt that heaven, hell, angels, and demons exist. There would be other spiritual events in my life that intensified my faith.

So, my question to you is, have you ever had an experience that cannot be explained in worldly terms? I believe that angels are all around us, and are working in perfect harmony with God. Sometimes, for a reason unknown to us, we are given the privilege of experiencing the spiritual realm. For me, the experiences confirm and strengthen my faith. I think sometimes people are afraid to share their experiences with anyone…maybe they just try to ignore what they know happened…because they cannot explain it.

Your experiences, together with your faith, can be a blessing that allows you to touch a heart in need. Whether or not angels are involved…

Psalm 91:11-12 “For He will give His angels charge of you, to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.”

Matthew 18:10 “Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, that in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in Heaven.”

Psalm 34:7 “The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them”

  1. Wow, that was awesome how your guardian angel protected you from getting hit at the traffic light. Thank you for understanding that there are life out there that is much bigger than ourselves. I’m kind of afraid to write about all of the other spiritual things that has happened in my life but maybe someday I will write them because there are some that I just don’t understands but they are so absolutely beautiful:)


    • Thanks for reading and commenting! I believe that our angels show themselves daily by the things they do in our lives, to protect us and keep us upon our path to heaven. Most of the time, we don’t even notice but every once in awhile we get a glimpse of them, and the miracles that are all around us. I have always known in my heart that God, heaven, angels and Satan (demons) exist because of the things that I have experienced in my own life. In sharing my experiences, I hope that it may validate what someone else might have seen or experienced, but maybe didn’t believe their own eyes. May God bless us all!

  2. That’s beautiful!Its so important to have a close relationship with our guardian angels!


  3. Angels exists first and then some became devils. Good thing you are in tuned with the Spirit for it will always guide you. Goodness will always prevail no matter what evil lurks around. Bless you, Bernadette.


  4. Thanks for sharing that Bernadette…..God is so real, as are His angels that watch over us…..thank you Father!……:)


  5. Thanks so much for stopping by and reading : – ) I loved your post about your family’s experiences…thanks for sharing! I believe our spiritual experiences are meant to be shared.


  6. Great story! I have had some personal experiences too. Actually I wrote a blog about mine and some from family members of mine to if you’d like to read it:


  7. Love your story! I have many like that. I truly believe in angels. And Touched by an Angel is my favorite TV series! Whenever I feel down I watch one of those episodes, and it never fails to lift me up.


  8. Tina…I guess you can call me “overboard” too! You are so right – truth is truth, no matter if people believe it or not. Once you experience the spiritual realm, you “know” there is much more going on than what is seen. And for me, that knowledge intensifies my faith in God and desire to know Him in a deeper way.


  9. I absolutely agree! I have personally experienced the inexplicable that were both angelic and demonic in nature. Whether or not people believe the truth does not make it any less true. The unseen spiritual realm is giong on around us at all times. I used to think my mother in law was a little overboard for praying over items she’d purchased from yard sales before brining them into her house. Call me “overboard” these days!


  10. Thanks, what a sweet testimony. I also love Psalm 91 and hold tight to every promise. XXOX


  11. Thank you for sharing this experience, Bern. I know you have had more than this one unexplainable encounter with heaven; I hope you will be led to share more of these with your readers.
    I am so glad that, after feeling moved for so long to communicate your thoughts, beliefs, life and encounters for so long, you are now doing it…and doing it so beautifully.
    May God continue to bless these efforts with His love and inspiration, honey!


  12. So much in life cannot be explained, and that’s okay. The important point is that you listened to that inner voice. 🙂


    • Annie, thank you for stopping by! You are so right…there are events that happen everyday that cannot be explained. For me, they increase my faith and strengthen my reliance on the Lord. I recently found your blog, and you truly touch my heart. Many similarities to my life: – ) Thanks for sharing.
