Angels Watching

How was that possible we kept asking?
As there was no logical explanation
It had to be because of divine attention
I mean year end and year out
Everything was kept flawlessly
Despite being in a location not known for safety
It had to be because of God’s angels watching

I’ve been in situations where I desperately needed a helping hand
And in a split second, some stranger came to assist me
Angels take on different forms
I say in the moment of need, some people are just like angels
I remember being reluctant to go somewhere
Because I had to go by myself
Then I took comfort in Psalm 91:11 1
That angels would be watching over me.

Scripture reference:
1 Psalms 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Encourage, But Don’t Push

I tell them how they can get ahead again and again
By making a temporary investment in current living
I wonder do they listen at all
Maybe not, because when in trouble,
they know on someone they can call
Or do they listen and just can’t execute
Because the plan of action is too hard for them to do
The plan of action, I don’t want to keep repeating
Because I just wanna encourage, but not push them

But at what point does encouragement becomes pushing?
Is it when they become defensive or angry at what you say?
Just about everyone wants to do things their own way
And even though their way doesn’t lead to better conditions
Regarding change, they are reluctant to listen
Be sure encouragement is for right reasons
Like fulfilling their potential or and dreams
Instead of what you plan or want for them
An even if they disappoint or don’t get far
Love them for who they are
As God has His purpose for their life.

Scripture reference:
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
