God is Watching Us from a Distance

Updated on April 20, 2013

From a distance

God is always watching us

At work and at play

And guiding us

Let’s remember not to break His heart

There is so much good this world can give us

Let’s embrace it all

And hold it close to our hearts

We shouldn’t be

Full of hatred towards others

Why are there people who don’t care?

That destroy and the hurt

Even the ones they love

Leaving behind a trail of pain and tears

God knows that the good

Will be in His world someday

So look toward the skies

Look all around

And when life seems so hard

Take a look at the sun shining from above

Or at the stars twinkling at night

God is there watching us from a distance

He cares and He knows we are his children

There will always be a sign

That will lead us on

He sees those who have hearts of gold

And those who are filled with hatred

And He knows that in some way, somehow

There will be those who will follow Him

And those who will be lost forever

So let’s look up toward the skies

And give Him our brightest smiles

Knowing that He is watching us from a distance

And if we help each other

If we care for our family and friends

And for those who need a helping hand

We will be blessed for ever more

Let’s never stop believing

Let’s keep the faith

Life will only become easier

Believing that God is watching us from a distance

      Yess god is watching .. Most people forget that the greatest gift God gives to man is FREE WILL.. the choices are yours .. it is simple good and whats right or do evil ..! choose wisely for in the end when God asks .. how did you choose ? remember .. he was watching !

      Yes, He is there watching us and knowing that we who have hearts of gold will be in his fold very soon. Those who choose not to follow His ways, shall some day be very sorry they did not. All they have to do is accept Him and his own. Thank you for this nice work of inspiration. whonu

      Very lovely reminder here. We must never lose faith and must continue to place our trust in Him. The days are so short now, so let's give Him all our praise and love one another as we should. Love is the only answer, that true agape love.

      Let us pray for those who are lost, as only God can change the hearts of men.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Beautiful reminder for everyone. As Michael says we have the choice, God doesn't force anything on use but we all know in our hearts and souls what is right. God sent His son to pay for our sins if we will receive Him. What a wonderful Father we all have!

      Wow, beautiful poem. So uplifting, something that I needed really for the times now. I like the last few lines of hope and faith:

      "Let’s never stop believing

      Let’s keep the faith

      Life will only become easier

      Believing that God is watching us from a distance."

      Hi Rasma,

      "So let’s look up toward the skies

      And give Him our brightest smiles"

      Just imagine if people did this instead of raising their voices in anger and hate.

      Hello gypsy-rose-lee.

      Comforting. How wonderful is to be reminded that God is watching us; giving us full confidence to pray , to trust , to know that He'll give us holy angels to protect/ or to stop as needed. He is worthy of our praises!

      Great hub. Voted up and awesome.

      This is actually one of those songs and sentiments that I struggle with as a believer. God actually bridged the "distance" by coming to earth in the form of Jesus and by remaining with us in the form of Holy Spirit. He is certainly watching us, but for me personally it is very close up and not "from a distance".

      The song puts God into a distant unreachable place where he watches us instead of a present reachable place where He has relationship with us.

      There are some truths in your poem and some things we should be doing as Christ-followers. This is just one of those songs for me that just doesn't sit quite right with me and my personal relationship with the Lord.

      Thanks so much for your comments, let's keep in believing and God bless.

      Glad you enjoyed this and the song Sannel. I have always loved how Bette sings it. Nice to hear that it began your day just right.

      Glad you enjoyed this DDE. The Lord is truly wonderful.

      Glad you enjoyed this Beckie and thanks for the vote and share. As long as we keep the faith and have compassion for the world and other we won't break His heart.

      Glad you enjoyed this Sue and thanks for the vote and share. If more people smiled toward the heavens and acknowledged God it would indeed be a wonderful world.

      Glad you enjoyed this Michael. Thanks for the vote. Best thing we can do is to let God guide us each day.

      Glad you enjoyed this Cris. Thanks for the vote and share and thanks for posting the song. It is really an inspirational song.

      Well Pete I believe it is all a part of how you look at it. God may be watching from a distance because He has a lot of world to look over. However I believe that quite often He is very near in our hearts and beside us to guide us. Keep the faith.

      Glad you enjoyed this chinared and thanks for the vote.

      Hello GRL,

      What heartfelt poetry and I watched the video twice, I love the song and the images that go with it, are so apt. Yes, God is watching us. What is all this fighting for? In the greater picture it is all so futile when we could all be getting on with loving one another instead and creating harmony on this beautiful planet. God bless.

      Glad you enjoyed my poem to the Lord shofarcall. I sure love that song and it provided the inspiration. I people had more faith perhaps there would be more harmony between the people in this world. God bless.
