No more scary thoughts

I used to be scared of a lot of things. I was scared of going up the stairs at my school if no one was with me, and of going into the girls’ bathroom alone. I was also scared of going upstairs to my bedroom if nobody was with me, and of falling asleep at night by myself in my dark room after Mommy and Daddy put me to bed. My house and school seemed so big and scary, and I felt like there was a monster following me everywhere I went.

But then one day I suddenly had the idea of saying a simple prayer to myself. I had learned in the Christian Science Sunday School that God is Love and fills all space. So my prayer was, “God is with me. God is with me.”


At night, when my mom was putting me to bed, we would pray the Lord’s Prayer and say a little rhyme that I’d also learned in Sunday School: “There is no spot where God is not.”  

I realized that God is always with me wherever I go, and since God is all around, there is no room for bad thoughts—or scary monsters!

The next day, when I went to school, I went into the girls’ bathroom and was all alone. I didn’t feel scared. In fact, I didn’t even remember that I had ever been scared at all. And now I can go up the dark stairs and play in my room or fall asleep at night without being scared even when I’m all by myself, because I know that God is holding my hand and keeping me safe wherever I go. 

I’m so grateful to God that I’m not afraid of being alone anymore.
