Aurora Colorado Shootings Are Deeply Troubling, but Take the Shield of Faith
“Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” – Ephesians 6:16
The recent events of the attack on innocent movie goers at the Aurora Colorado Batman screening test our faith. Yet, these events can also strengthen us because it is a reminder how fragile life is each and every moment. One never knows the hour of our passing from the physical life. Thus, always maintain a strong faith connection to God, Source, Higher Power, Jehovah or whatever you call the great source of Loving-kindness which cares for our every need. Faith is the shield against darkness as well as a bridge across the abyss of senseless acts like this horrible crime.
This biblical quote reminds us to maintain strong faith in whatever form of connection we are most assured through. For some, it is daily prayer followed by some inspirational reading. Others are strengthen through insight or reflective meditation on the Teachings of Christ and His disciples. Still others link up through song or chanting the sacred names of God.
In whatever way you connect with God, make it a faith habit because like eating on a regular basis, this is how to maintain spiritual health. Faith is a human quality which must be fed through consistently accessing this part of our soulful nature. You know what happens when meals are irregular or missed; weakness results, making you vulnerable to attacks, illness, fatigue and accidents.
The most powerful times to rebuild the shield of faith are early morning just after you awake, and 30 minutes before sleeping. Turn the negative TV news off in the evening while engaging your soul. Angelic beings are most easily accessible in the early morning hours, right before sleep and during sleep. During these times our conscious and sub-conscious aspects of our mind are bridged most easily.
While we hold the families and 70 victims of this Batman movie screening in prayer, it is a time for us to draw closer to the source of love, to Christ, our angelic friends, guardian angels and God. They are here for us, but we must open our hearts during these trying times.
