Welcome to the new year once again! We have a God who loves and watches over us. He doesn’t check in on us occasionally, He sees us all the time within and without. What can be more comforting than that!


Where shall I go from Your spirit? Where shall I flee from Your presence? - Psalm 139:7 Click To Tweet

El Roi, I Know That You See Me

It was Hagar who first gave You this profound name
Alone in the wilderness You found her
But You were not there to strike or lay blame
El Roi, You comforted her affliction

Sometimes I cannot share my tribulations
I feel that people may not understand me
But You speak Your peace to my apprehensions
El Roi, You satisfy my deepest needs

(Related: I will never leave you nor forsake you)

And each day as I struggle to make sense
Of issues that harbour contradictions
I pray to view them through Your holy lens
For El Roi, You are the omniscient God

I am strengthened like Hagar, the poor maid
Though temptations and trials beset me
My confidence even before I seek aid
Is El Roi, I know that You see me

    I was extremely moved by this poem. The part that really touched me is “sometimes I cannot share my tribulations, I feel that people may not understand me but you speak your peace to my apprehension.” I can really relate to this part of the poem. Sometimes I feel that when I share my problems with people, I would not be understood. But when I put it to God in prayer, he hears me and I don’t even feel ashamed.

    In our afflictions, may his eyes be there to see us through.
    Thank you Ma for the poem, may his eyes (El Roi) see you always.

  • Onoyima Juliet

    It’s mysterious how someone can understand you beyond anyone else, I mean – can understand you even more than you understand yourself. God is my comfort in times of distress

    God sees your every work and every challenges,and will always come to our aid in time of weakness, indeed the God who surely sees.

  • Onwuamaeze Ikechukwu John.

    Are we surprised he came to Hagar’s help? My Lord never disappoints, the name “EL ROI” wasn’t given him for Fancy. He sees me, you and all that exists. He sees and knows even our most deepest secrets, He appears when one least expected. He’s got a Divine eye, that watches over his Children. A nice poem, absolutely perfect for an all seeing perfect God.

    My pick on this is, let’s not be discouraged; He watches over us and will come to our aid at the right time.

    • Thank you ma for this captivating and faith enabling poem, it made me realize more that God is always with me no matter tho i might not see him physically but his spirit is always with me and will always come to my aid whenever i need his help. God can visit whoever he wants to rich or poor, he is a merciful and loving father that see’s us through our trials and difficulties just have faith in him , he will always be there for you to see u through whatever you are going through. Being a Christian is the best thing to ever happen to me cause I have a caring and loving father thank you Jesus for everything you have done in my life.

  • Chukwuma Wilfred

    “Our Redeemer always Liveth”, in the days of our tribulations which seem not to be shared with anyone, He is always there to Comfort us. Just like Hagar called Him “EL ROI”, He works wonders in our life. He is “Emmanuel”, for He is always with us. Inspiring poem ma and the graphics is eye catchy too

  • Chikodi Obu

    Isn’t this wonderful!!! I feel so blessed, nourished and encouraged rn. Keep up the good works ma and may God’s blessings upon your life never run short.

  • Adeke Chukwuka

    Definitely, whatever thing we do, God sees us, it doesnt matter if it is good or bad. We knowing God sees us gives us an inner peace that we are safe/protected. Franklin Graham said ”No matter what storm you face, you need to know that God loves you; he has not abandoned you”

  • Thomas Rebecca Ina

    Just as the song writer Ron Kenoly sang “when trouble blows Jehovah sees,
    Jehovah knows, He is my peace,
    when sorrow nears, Jehovah sees, Jehovah hears”.
    This is my testimony.
    I know there was a time it got so tough on me I cried every day but all of those hard days didn’t mean my testimony wasn’t coming.
    He sees, he hears and He is abundantly able.
    Thank you ma for sharing, I’m blessed.

  • Onuigbo Esther

    I am a strong believer of the fact that god is always with us. But as humans we sometimes doubt his presence and wait for him to show us a sign… Hagar’s story is a reassuring evidence of Christ love

    The confidence, the courage, the believe and faith in this poem is what I cherish most. The believe that weeping might last the whole night, but with God joy comes in the morning is what I really admire about this piece of work.

  • Ajibe Chinonye

    People don’t always understand the things you tell,some even end up judging you.That is why I prefer to tell God,he listens and is also watching over me.
    And the best part,he never judges you.

    • Edith Ohaja

      My dear, He does judge and punishes! Read your Bible carefully, that’s why He’s called the judge of the whole earth. I thought that the popular thing was to say, “Leave all judgment to God”, which isn’t even right. (See my posts titled, “Myself the Judge”, “Judge Not…”, etc.) Have we now graduated to saying that even God does not judge? That is so wrong. Bless you!

  • Odeh faith elakeche

    I am really touched by this poem. Sometimes, I do feel this way. But one thing I’ve come to understand is that God loves and cares about me. He has a plan for all His children. Sometimes it may not be easy, but He’ll keep pulling us through. He is a covenant keeping God.
