I read a story about a woman who was a manager at a gas station that had experienced a number of robberies. She decided to design a sign to hang in a conspicuous place to ward off prospective burglars, and she came up with a message similar to the words in this image. Years after she moved away from that place, she met a young man who became friends with her and her husband. One day when they were chatting, he began to open up about his past. He mentioned a small town where he’d once lived, the very place it turns out, where the woman had worked at that gas station. One night, the young man confessed, he had loaded his father’s pistol and headed to the gas station to rob it. He changed his mind, though, when he saw the well-lit sign and the expression of faith in Divine Protection. “I walked away,” he said, “a changed man; those words put my life on a new path.” The woman cried; it was an answer to a prayer she had prayed when she first fashioned the sign, a prayer that people would take note and let the Lord be their Security Guard, too!
I decided to fashion my own sign in hopes that it will help us all to remember that we are not alone; Someone truly is watching over us always!
Who knows? History might even repeat itself; this poster in a place of business might redirect somebody’s else life once again!
