God can help with the scary things

I couldn’t sleep. Every time I closed my eyes, I saw something I didn’t want to see. I saw two cars crashing into each other, just like I’d seen one afternoon when my carpool was driving home from school. It had been a scary thing to see, even though everyone in both cars had been OK in the end, and our car hadn’t been part of the crash. And it was scary every time
I remembered it.

Sometimes images or memories bother us. It might even feel like they won’t stop coming back, no matter how much we wish they would go away. What can we do then?

One thing I learned in Christian Science Sunday School is that we can always ask God for help. It doesn’t matter if we need help with something little or something big. God will always give us what we need to be peaceful and move forward.
