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.

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
