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 will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
