Do you fear death? I do, sometimes, but not really. Regardless of your religion, this is for you.
It's 3:45AM here and I stopped working on my project (this iOS project will be released internationally, so watch for it! *winks*) just to write this blog post. My last post on this blog was in November 2016. I just feel compelled to write this.
Last night, my fiancée told me that she fears death, she's afraid of dying (I am the fiancé of Diana Rose). I told her please do not. I explained why, though I am dreading when I think of it. I just turned 24 and she's 26 - we're very far from turning old, so why does she need to fear for death? I tried convincing her to feel otherwise by sharing of what I believe and some facts such as it's damn inevitable. Let me share it to you too and explain everything further.
Again, we're in our mid 20s - she's 26. We're young yet! This damn death is inevitable - you can't avoid it, it will come whether you want it or not! And what's more, you wouldn't know when will it happen. So to those who fear death - just don't. Don't stress out your self thinking about it, life is beautiful. Life is greater than death - After freakin' all, we're all merely humans, mortals. But, good news: see John 3:16 ;)
Some of our friends already died. That's fucking life, man! Those dead friends of ours are already in God knows where. You see, we will eventually be dead. It's just that some of our friends went to the afterlife earlier than our time. Think of it, why would you be afraid of something that already happened to the other people? Let me share to you one of my favorite stories of David in Old Testament of the Bible:
23 But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me. - 2 Samuel 12
This verse above was said by David when he was questioned why he stopped fasting and crying so sudden. David is on point, man! You cannot do any damn thing to bring a dead back to life. We will meet our friends and loved ones in the future when they or we die. Every time there's a friend of mine mourning of the death of her relative, I really want to share this message to him/her.
Lastly, if you're a Christian reading this, you must not fear death more. Man, you have Jesus. He's the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him, so believe Him regardless of what's happening to this world and whatever people tell us. These shouldn't make our faith in Him be shaken.
I further told my fiancée that when we die, we just go to sleep, or have a nice dream - for a very short time, then we will wake up quickly for the Lord's judgement. *Sorry not sorry, Atheists people ;) *
Tell me, do you still fear death now? Good. We shall see each other in the future. And no, I'm not dying yet. The Lord knows His plans for me, He still has plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans to give me a hope and a future.
