I AM EL ROI, the God who sees. I see you when you are in despair; I see you when you cry out to me for your loved ones. I see you at all times: when you feel on top of the world and when you feel in the valley of hopelessness. I see you, I know you, I love you. I understand what you’re going through. At times you feel that no one else sees and no-one else understands, I do. I see you when you are disappointed. I created you in your mother’s womb; I knit you together; you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Lift up your eyes and see me. I am watching over you.
The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.
The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. The Lord keeps you from all harm
and watches over your life. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever.
She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees [El Roi] me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”
