Angels, Demons, and Dating
|Angels, Demons, and Dating
Written by Thomas P. Schmierer on December 18, 2006
In early July of this year, I had a strong desire to see angels. I
loved hearing any and all stories of angel experiences people had to
share. When I prayed I would look intently into the thin air trying
to see angels or anything purely spiritual. One night I had a dream
that killed my desire to see angels.
In the dream demons were around my bed and I had a rosary in my hand.
I was praying that the Virgin Mary would send the demons to the foot
of the cross. By the time I awoke, they had never left but I also
never gave up my belief that praying for Mary's intercession would
take care of them.
I believe God was using the dream to tell me that if I wanted to see
His angels, then I must also see the dark angels or demons that they
fight. Since demons are terrifying, I am glad God sent me this
message in a dream rather than granting me my vague wish of seeing
This is how God protects us.
God protects us in dating too. He knows what is good for us even when
we think we know better than Him.
Sometimes when a long term relationship ends we do not want to imagine
life without our loved one. We may even send expensive gifts and
leave unwanted phone calls as we try to convince our ex-
girlfriend/boyfriend to come back.
This is when God reminds us that relationships leading to marriage
have a special condition. They require a reciprocation of our love.
This fact is seen in a version of the marriage vows wherein each
member of the couple says he/she will take the other "to love and to
If your lover does not cherish you, then there is an undeniable
incompatibility. You shouldn't have to convince someone that you are
worth cherishing. The spouse that is right for you will cherish you
from the beginning until death do you part. The spouse that is right
for you is patiently waiting for you to go through a healing process
to get over your ex. When you have completely healed and realize that
you are worthy of being cherished and nothing less, you will find the
one waiting to cherish you.
I thought I wanted to see angels until the existence of demons in the
spiritual realm was revealed to me. God temporarily gave me
insightful goggles so that I could see what the spiritual realm is
really like while here on earth, thus correcting my false, rosy view.
If you are still wearing romantic goggles about your ex, then day
dream about marriage with someone who does not cherish you and your
blindness will be cured. Rather than pining over unreciprocated love,
thank God for protecting you!
