Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
But I will defend my house [realm of responsibility, family, home, God-given appointment]
against marauding [evil, destroying] forces.
Never again will an oppressor overrun my people,
for now I am [keenly aware, eyes wide open, warily prepared] keeping watch.
watchful synonyms: alert, all ears, attentive, careful, cautious, circumspect, guarded, observant, on guard, open-eyed, prepared, ready, vigilant, wakeful, wary, wide-awake
