When I was seven or eight, I remember staying awake half the night because my grandfather's coat hanging on the door looked like someone in the doorway. My solution to the fear was to put my head under the covers. If I couldn't see it, then it couldn't see me. Though that was childish, at the age of seventy-four I almost repeated that experience.
My wife had been hanging clothing on a rack and rolled it into the hallway. Engrossed in my study, I forgot about the rack. When I turned out the light to go through the hall, fear enveloped me. It look like someone in the doorway.
All of us have faced fear. The real issue, however, is how we face fear. I can testify of a divine promise for the heart, mind, and life, a promise in the Word of God which says: "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand" (Isaiah 41:10, NIV).
