I always believe that an angel is constantly keeping me safe. I had several near-death experiences and I know that an angel was part of all those experiences.
As a kid, I was really naughty and hard-headed. Although I'm a girl, I loved playing boyish games and passing highways. I remembered how I almost got bumped and side-swept by a vehicle twice.
The first one was when I was crossing the highway. When I was in the middle of the road, I didn't bother to look if there is a car passing on the other lane. I was shocked when I was almost side-swept by a jeepney. I felt that something pushed me backwards to prevent me from getting into an accident.
The second time was when I was playing on the road just in front of our house. We were playing 'habulan' (tag, you're it!) on a warm afternoon. Two cars were moving fast towards us when I suddenly ran in the middle of the road. I thought it was the end of me! It was like someone shielded me from being crushed by the two cars. The edge of the cars were only a few inches away from my belly. My mother was outside our house when it happened. She fainted, she thought I was going to die right then and there. When she came to her senses, she was relieved that nothing bad happened to me. I thought to myself, "The cars were running fast, I could've died there! Seriously, it was like something protected me."
From then on, I believed that I have a very alert and assuring angel or guardian with me.
Last year, I almost got killed when someone trespassed into our house. I was a graduating college student. Here in the Philippines, they have a belief that graduating students are prone to accidents and tragedies.
At that time, I lived alone in our house in Iloilo since my family already resided in Manila. It was around 4 am when I heard someone whispering in my ears. I though it was just another entity bugging me (I have experiences with 'The Others' as well). When I looked up, a person (covered his face with a shirt) was in front of me holding a knife. I immediately sat and went to the corner of my bed. I shouted 'Mama' thrice. I don't know if it was my scream that surprised him or something else. The trespasser just suddenly said that he'll go out of the house. He came back in my room asking to open the door for him (this part I find to be funny). He threw the knife towards me and said that he had no intentions of hurting me. I opened the main door for him, even the gate. I have an OJT in the hospital since it was a weekday, I quickly bathed and packed all my belongings. I texted my aunt saying that I'll stay in their house until I have someone with me in our house.
It turned out that the trespasser entered our house by removing the bamboo barrel in our bungalow type 2nd floor.
I guess I could compare my experience as that of Daniel in the Lion's Den. The trespasser had the chance to do evil things but something or someone prevented it to happen.
I'm really thankful for the angel God has given me. :D
