"Death cannot hold me down"
Some people might get confused by this because it is conventional that life begins at birth and ENDS with death. We also sometimes find ourselves thinking, "What will happen to me when I die?
Will I turn into a frog or something?
What if I've already spent this life before and this is just some kind of a second cha--"
Well hold that thought!
Let's go back to question number one: What will happen to me when I die?
What indeed? What can be behind this mysterious phenomenon when some
people even consider this as a wonderful phase as if welcoming death as that of a friend? indeed, a friend? There is always light waiting at the end of a dark tunnel.
There is always a rainbow after the rain.
There is no fruit with effortless work.
In order to experience joy, there are countless obstacles to hold us off therefore making that goal even more precious.Precious...?
Death is not some scary, dark cloaked creature with a scythe that is usually perceived.
It can actually be seen as a...portal.
A portal to God's kingdom wherein a great reunion is waiting for us.For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
eternal life. a life after death.
And all you have to do is accept God's hand and keep Jesus in your heart.
Keep Him close because He will never,
ever,ever let you go.
Because you are loved!
With God always beside you, what can happen? surely, death is nothing.
Surely, death is bearable when you know what's waiting for you out there...
Surely, surely...Surely death cannot hold me down.
I myself was once...confused.
Asking a lot of questions that ended up annoying people.
I was messed up.
You can say I was lost.
But at last.
My years of journey in the dark tunnel, I've finally seen the little light that continuously comforted me all along though I never noticed...
keeping me warm...
leading me to the right path...
keeping my hope growing...
keeping my faith growing...
It was there and I never ever took notice of it.
I took it for granted.
Still, it kept me warm.
It kept me alive.
And now, that I am aware of this ball of light, I felt so lifted, I feel
I feel as if......as if I was set free.
as if I can do anything! No obstacle or problem will be given to me, to us by the Lord which is unsolvable because...All things work together in Christ, our Lord
So let us not loose hope.
Let us pray more.
Someday, we will reach the end of our dark tunnels.
Someday, we can finally rest peacefully with the Lord by our sides.
Someday we will be greeted by the Lord Himself!
and is it not wonderful that someday
He may pat us on the back and say...
