Monica’s Praise Report 1/23/24

Post Date: January 23, 2024
Author: Monica Hebert

Has God ever used your annoying dog to teach you about your guardian angel?  He did that for me recently, and I can’t wait to share it.

Every week, the same yard man in the same truck using the same equipment comes. Every week, it is the same, yet my genius dog after 10 years still reacts the same. He barks non stop. He follows the man and equipment from window to door from the inside. He especially hates the blower. He literally attacks the air being blown under the doors. He takes this way too seriously- foams at the mouth, never gives up to protect us from these “dangers”. If it wasn’t for the damage he does as he “protects” us, I would laugh instead of being annoyed-until this past week when God revealed to me some things about my guardian angel through this big oaf of a dog.

God revealed to me that my guardian angel is the guard dog of my soul.  It doesn’t matter how familiar or how often I am tempted by the same familiar repeated sins, my guardian angel is always “on guard”. Even if I don’t necessarily think the danger is that big a deal, he perceives danger much better than I ever can. I might think invisible air being blown through the small space under the door is no big deal, but my guardian angel knows the enemy only needs a crack. He dutifully runs from window to window and door to door of my soul viciously barking growling attacking each danger. He constantly tries his best to alert me to these dangers.

The big difference between my guardian angel and my “guard dog” is that my guardian angel does not leave a path of destruction between each temptation.  I do bet though if he had the limitations of a human, he would be just as worn out afterwards!  My dog usually has to lay down and drink tons of water after the yard man leaves. He does so knowing he did his best to alert us to the “dangers”. If he could speak I bet he would ask why we don’t care about these dangers that come repeatedly- Just stop them from coming already. I wonder if my guardian angel would think the same way?

Can’t you see this is a danger?  Don’t you know that some of these temptations are under your control?  Avoid the near occasion of sin!  Heed my warnings, please!

I am thinking God is working on me and guiding me to recognize those invisible regular  “dangers” that I have been ignoring or not recognizing. I am praying I take His direction and discipline gracefully. I am so glad He knows me and my heart so well.

Has God used your pets to teach you something?  Has your guardian angel been a big part of your faith journey? Have you noticed him trying to warn you about the dangers to your soul? Share, share, share all that God has been doing in your life.
