“He shall be in charge of the lamps on the pure gold lampstand before the Lord continually.” Leviticus 24:4

God gave the children of Israel many services to perform that kept them constantly cognizant of being before Him.

Lord, please help me to remember that I am continually before You . . .so I have constant opportunities to serve, praise and worship You! And here’s a simple poem . . .

He’s Watching

There is never a moment
when I’m not in Your thoughts

never a time when
I’m away from Your watch

not to police me
or ticket my moves

but to grow my love
and understanding of You.


  1. “not to police me
    or ticket my moves”

    That used to be the way I thought.
    I like this way much better.
    Cool line.

  2. “not to police me
    or ticket my moves

    but to grow my love
    and understanding of You.”

    Great poem, and post! πŸ™‚

  3. Deb, This poem brought to mind a picture of Jesus watching over us and smiling! πŸ™‚ Just because He loves us. Peace, Linda

  4. I think the not policing us thing is awesome too. But what got me is the doing of something to remind me I’m in God’s presence. To be aware of God β€œwith” us. A candle, praying on the hour, whatever it takes. I’m going the candle route today. So good Deb. What did I do before you and your poems?

  5. Me too! the thought of God watching us . . .or anyone watching us all the time tends to put us on the defensive. I wanted to see it differently! Good to hear from you! God bless you and your work with Him!

  6. Thanks for encouraging me, for your friendship and thoughts . . .and for being who He created you to be!

  7. Oh Linda, I like that! Now I’m going to be picturing that too. πŸ™‚ God bless you!

  8. I love what you got from it Craig! That’s really so beautiful. I’m trying to be aware of Him today by thanking Him often . . .for every little thing.
    You did just fine before me and these poems! ha! But now you get to bless me! Thank you for that!

  9. Debbie, I love your outlook on free will, that we can live in thanks and try to do our best… not being marionettes of God, but mindful that God is indeed watching, knowing not only the intimacies but the intricacies of our daily lives. Beautiful.


  10. Thinking of it that way, Amy, makes us so grateful and glad that He’s watching . . .instead of fearful and ashamed. He watches us because He loves us. πŸ™‚ Like when you watched your babies sleeping and learning to crawl and sit up. God bless beautiful you!

  11. Wow!

    Thanks much, Deb.

    For the longest while I thought about God as the ‘Frowning Judge’. Now that I know differently, I’m happy He’s a loving Father, patiently correcting me.

    Many thanks for sharing.

    Much blessings,

  12. I know that He loves watching over you! πŸ™‚

  13. I love this one, Deb! It’s so comforting!

  14. Glad that He is comforting and watching over you tonight Eric! πŸ™‚ He is also watching over your writing – blessing it and us with it!

  15. > “ticket my moves”

    Applauding with the others,
    both of my hands on the wheel–
    I mean keyboard!

  16. And buckled up too, right? ha! Praying you and yours are doing great under His loving watch! πŸ™‚

  17. What an awesome creation we all are
    for the Lord to continually watch us!
    I love you God!

  18. He loves you too, Rea . . .sooo much! πŸ™‚ Me too!!!!
