For some reason, I never took the idea of angels, or guardian angels, seriously. Recently, however, I came across the following words spoken by Christ within the context of discussing the connection between God and children:
“See that you do not look down on these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.” Matthew 18:10 NIV
As a father to a four year old little girl (with a baby boy due in October) this verse is extremely comforting to me. I often find myself worrying about the dark circumstances of the future world that they will be living in. However, Jesus has guided the willing for far longer than I can comprehend and he will be faithful to guide my kids, too.
I completely understand. As a mom and a Christian, it’s a scary concept of raising kids in today’s world. All I have to say is pray pray pray….and God will provide you with the wisdom and strength needed to raise your children. Congrats on your new arrival!
