Guardian Angel

Lily Among Thorns Song Of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3

Shape Up And Fly Right, Chapter 2, Pages 77, 78

My emotions taking me completely off my guard, because from the very first moment we connected, I found it a real challenge to keep my mind on my work. But knowing I could always rest easy in the Lord, I finished my work on time and gave God all the glory. All of my attentions, however, turned right back to my Guardian Angel a nickname I had given to my newfound friend, that is until perhaps I should come to know his given name. Being honest with myself, I hoped maybe somehow I would see him just one last time before I had to leave for the Center. But suffering the consequences of my circumstances, I asked myself in a whisper the most obvious question, while fighting the urge to take a second look in his direction. “How is it something too good to be true could happen in such an awful place as this is beyond my comprehension?” From what I thought to be reasonable way of thinking, I then concluded I am a grown woman, and if I so choose to have another look at someone, I will do so and be done with it.

I was then taken off guard when he just then looked up and caught me watching him from afar. I cannot emphasize enough just how delighted he was by this little happenstance. Seeing his reaction, I then thought it was well worth the risk, and if for nothing else but to see his beautiful smile just one more time before I should be summoned, no longer did I feel the urge to turn away. But of all things I found myself sharing a winsome smile myself.

Author’s Commentary

Contemplating her onetime past Lily is reconciling why from a young tender age she had come to experience the unkindness of others, and so it really isn’t such a shock to her system she should now be forced as a young adult to endure the unpleasantries at the present time.

Lily, unwilling to concede to her unfriendly circumstances. With a faithful heart she trust’s in God to fight her battles for her. But even though this might ring true, life is very difficult for Lily, which in her case goes without saying. But if it were to be said. The new hostile “Global Metropolis Evil Empire” surrounding Lily on all sides 24/7 is not very hospitable toward her faithful belief in the Bible, or equally her heart’s desire of a “Knight In Shinning Armor” come to  rescue her to take her “Far Far Away.” 

The reality is Lily now forced to live behind enemy lines where her sincere beliefs in the Bible as it is written is held in contempt, and although her current situation doesn’t look to promising. Lily still maintains her resolve, and she hopes in the Lord against all hope. She will still come to find her “One True Love”.

And as an involuntary participant working against her will, on this one night when it appears she is seemingly going through the usual bleak routine. She takes courage breaking the rules of the menstealers by cautiously lifting her eyes, and with a thankful heart she turns to look toward a miracle come to call straight from above, and with the help of divine guidance. All in one fell swoop, and in this most unlikely of places. The darkness of a dreary warehouse is answered prayer radiating a light of heartfelt promises from an attractive smile of a most welcome gentlemanly expression.

Scripture, As It Is Written, Mountain

Daniel 2: 32-35, This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, is belly and his thighs of brass. His legs of Iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. Thou sawest till that stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Danial 2: 43-45, And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God  hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
