God is watching over us.

Nowadays, thanks to the security camera,

We are often being watched,

Watched by cold, dispassionate eyes, intent only on catching us in wrong-doing.

The feeling that someone is watching us is not a pleasant feeling.

But the feeling that someone is watching over us is a lovely feeling.

God is not watching us,

God is watching over us.

The conviction that God is watching over us gives us comfort in times of sadness, strength in times of weakness, and hope in times of despair.
