Seeing the fear in somone else's eyes

I was at the library today and came across some one viewing inappropriate material. It was really akward. I knew what he was looking at, I don't know if he noticed or not or even cared. he wasn't looking at it explicitly, he was trying to sneak it.... It was extra awkward because it was a compture I had been using and I had left my material at the desk thinkin I would be able to come back and use the comptur after a phone call. Anyway I don't mean to comment on him, on his life or choices. What i did see was fear, a desire to chase the dragon. Anyway I guess I am sharing this out of gratitude to God for the blessing of some sobriety, a desire to try and get things right and get out of my own way :). anyway it was something I wanted to get off of my chest.

Fear    
"I believe the Father of us all calls to us as this father to his son. Fear most certainly has always been at the root of my sickness.

"I have come to know that thoughts, like water, will stay on course if we make a place for them to go. Otherwise, our thoughts follow the course of least resistance, always seeking the lower levels. Probably the greatest challenge and the most difficult thing you will face in mortal life is to learn to control your thoughts. In the Bible it says, as a man ‘thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Prov. 23:7). One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself. As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. "
