One time I thought that my life was coming to an end, that my heart would stop beating, in fact I wanted my heart to stop beating; the first man I had ever loved in my entire life, the first man that had made me feel loved had just passed and there was nothing I could do about it. The thought that my life would not go very well after my father’s death was pretty strong and didn’t go away in a hurry and the hurt still remains. So many other things had happened to me too since then, I have been lied to and lied on, I have been hated on and physically abused, I have been stolen from, framed up and nearly raped… look, we all go through a lot as we go through life.
One thing should keep us at peace though; the fact that we have a Father, The Almighty God, Who watches over us both night and day to keep us and shield us from evil, the evil one and his willing agents. The same way He watches over us to protect and keep us, He watches over our enemy to keep him away from us and from harming us.
The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch upon the evil and the good. Proverbs 15:3 (AMP)
