Face Your Fears

9alpzz3iir5u1rk2hxI heard an interesting story a while back and wanted to share it with everyone. I made several changes to the story to relate Christ but the lesson remains the same.

A man once lived in a land where it was dark, and dreary, all the time. A thick fog always covered the land because of it’s location. In the land there stood an old dark tower. People said the tower was haunted, and everyone was afraid of it. No one would even approach the tower.

This man was intrigued by the tower, and wanted to visit the tower. One day he got enough courage to face the tower, and went inside.

Inside the tower was beautiful. The steps were gold, and the staircase looked as if it had been built by a master carpenter. The tower was empty, but warm and inviting.

He began climbing up the stairs as they spiraled up for what seemed like an eternity. He continued climbing for many hours. Along the way he wanted to turn around because the journey was just too hard for him. But now, he was driven by sheer will power, and had to reach the top somehow.

He continued climbing until finally he reached the top. Although he was tired, and wanted to rest for a while, he was curious what was behind the only door he found at the top of the tower. He went through the door which led him outside to a balcony.

Once he was outside the sun was shining brightly because he was above the gloomy fog that covered the land. The view he had was beautiful. Like nothing he had ever seen before in his life.

He could see a distant city more beautiful than any he had ever seen. He saw mountains, and valleys like none before.

This story shows us that sometimes confronting our fears face to face can lead us to brighter, and more beautiful places in life.

God is a strong, and mighty, tower. Abiding in Him can lead us to greater heights, and to some beautiful places.
