Person detected at 3 am
That was the scary notification from the security camera
My mind began to race
Did they come back? Are they casing the place?
So strange, I had felt something was going to go wrong
And was actually up at 2 in the morn
But fell asleep at 3
So didn’t get notification beep

When woke later in the morning, I noticed notification
My mind began to race and debate, do I first view the tape?
Or go on to read the Bible and to meditate
Tape is important, what if they still on property?
If so, how can I prevent harm to me?
Settled the conflict by being reminded of Psalm 91
Which refers to danger all around but not coming near me
After all, didn’t the Lord protect?
The inside of property is still intact

So right away I didn’t view the tape
Went on to read scripture and to give the Lord thanks and praise
While using the same time I use each day
When I did get around to seeing the tape
Discovered not only was the notification scary
It was not an account of what the camera did see
Tape showed a car, not a person on the property
And it was nothing out of the ordinary


And all that time my mind was racing
Working up a sweat and worrying
Was not about to make meditation a priority
When I remembered Jesus said don’t worry (Matthew 6:25-34)
And that the Lord will keep in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3)
The Lord will protect
And that will never be scary or incorrect.
