Fear and Faith are Both Based on Ideas

This story is from September 2015

As I went to announce to my kids that it was bedtime I noticed that two out of the three were fast asleep on the couch.

I was tired too and decided to just leave them where they lay for the night. I told the last one awake to head to bed, but she protested and asked that I move the others to the room with her because she did not want to sleep alone.

I told her she’s always wanted her own room anyway, so tonight she gets her wish!

She replied, “Well, I changed my mind!”

A light went on in my mind as I realized that she must still be afraid due to those ghost stories the kids down the street had told her earlier in the evening. 

I noted a similarity between fear and faith; they are both based on ideas. 

Ideas alone are nothing, but they lose or gain power depending on the degree of belief we choose to invest in them.
