     Now how should we watch? A guard who was watching on the
side of the Union soldiers in time of the war, was walking up and
down while on duty, when he suddenly felt the approach of the
enemy – danger; so he began to sing, ‘Jesus, lover of my soul, Let
me to thy bosom fly,’ etc., and the verse that did the work was,
‘Other refuge have I none, Hangs my helpless soul on thee,’ etc.; he
gave up to God. He afterward talked with the man who said he
approached with his gun to his shoulder to shoot the guard, and he
said his arm fell and the rifle with it; he could not shoot. That was
watching; we must feel the danger and lift our thought to God; He
will save us.
     If we do not feel the danger and go right on as though everything
were all right, declaring you are all right, you can not die, etc., when
the seeming is all wrong, you will not be watching with God.
When we feel the danger then we earnestly turn to God.  Mary Baker Eddy   (Oakes, Richard, Course In Divinity and General Collectanea,  .p.12-13)
