We Attended The Funeral Of My Wife's Grandma

We were at the internment, totally different from what we usually do. But, there is one thing that made us reflect together. Life in this world will always have an ending. This is a hard reality. Sometimes we feel so comfortable here and as a result, we don't want to leave. We live here as if we are permanent residents. Life here on earth is a temporary assignment and we should not forget that heaven is eternal. Whether we like it or not one day our stay here is over. It is our time to go home.

Embracing Mortality: A Journey from Fear to Freedom

By Ianpassion

I went to a funeral recently, and it was different from the funerals I'm used to. The way they did things was unique and showed the beliefs and culture of the person who passed away and their family. But even though there were differences, there was one thing we all had in common - we all realized that we won't live forever.

No matter who we are or where we come from, we all have to face the fact that one day we will have to say goodbye to the people we love or they will say goodbye to us. It's scary to think that we won't be able to be with our loved ones anymore or see our dreams come true. But sometimes, we have a moment when we start to see things differently. We begin to believe that death is not the end, but a journey to something greater, something that goes beyond this life. When we embrace this belief, we find the courage to face our fears and overcome them. Throughout history, many religions and philosophies have talked about an afterlife, a place where we go after we die. But even though we talk about it, many of us aren't really ready to go on that journey. Why? It's because we are attached to the beauty and wonders of this world. We have strong connections to the people we love and the experiences we cherish, and that keeps us tied to this earthly life. So we try to find ways to delay our departure or avoid the reality of death. We focus on temporary pleasures, spend our time on worldly things, and create distractions to keep us from thinking about death. But deep down, we know that these things can only delay the inevitable. I have to admit that I'm not ready for that final journey either, and it's not because I'm scared. It's because I love my wife and children so much. The thought of leaving them behind and not being able to be with them is really hard to accept. What about you? Have you ever thought about these big questions? Have you struggled with the idea of death and how it affects our lives? It's a personal journey that each of us has to go through, and everyone's response is different. But when we let go of our fear of death, we find true freedom. We can live without being held back by fear. In the teachings of the Son, He said, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die" (John 11:25). These words give us comfort and hope. They remind us that having faith and trust in Him can change how we see death. By accepting this profound truth, we can start living a life that goes beyond fear.

By embracing the teachings and promises of the Son, we find freedom from the fear and anxiety that death often brings. We realize that death is not the end, but a doorway to a new and eternal existence. This understanding gives us a renewed sense of purpose, seeing each day as an opportunity for growth, love, and making a meaningful impact.

We discover a deep sense of purpose and meaning. Death is no longer something to dread, but a pathway to a profound and everlasting existence. This empowers us to live fully in the present, cherishing every moment, embracing growth, and positively influencing the world around us.

Thus, the Son's teachings reshape our perception of death. By accepting this truth, we transcend fear and embrace the eternal promise of love, growth, and everlasting life. May we find solace, hope, and courage in His teachings as we strive to live a life that shines brightly, even in the face of mortality.

I Doubt His Love For Me | What Should I Do?

The thorny vine I discovered while hiking in the jungle reminded me of how the Son suffered for mankind. He deserved the best crown as King, but a thorny crown was forced on His head, causing Him to bleed and groan in agony.

The torment was endured by the Son. I'm still amazed at how much He valued humanity. There will be no curse from Him on those who betrayed, denied, and tortured Him. Isn't that incredible? He could have ignored us and left us to suffer the consequences of our wrongdoing.
