Spiritual Life Question

I asked a question in my Spiritual Life class on Tuesday, and I was surprised by the responses. I started the class by playing a clip from M. Night Shyamalan's Signs in which Mel Gibson's character talks about his disbelief in God. The most chilling line of the movie is when he looks at the camera and says, "There is no one watching over us. We are on our own." It is powerfully delivered.

After playing the clip, I asked the class, "What spiritual experience have you had to justify belief?" In other words, "How do we know that God is looking out for us?"
