FACING DEATH WITH THE PEACE OF GOD
Do you flinch at the thought or mention of your own death?
Does the fear of death fill you with dread?
Are you trying to squeeze the very last breath out of this life on earth?
If that is you, you need to open your heart to this message.
In our modern Western culture there has been a great deal of effort to erase anything about death that is unpleasant.

Death is real, it is cruel, it can be painful, both physically and emotionally, and cannot be avoided by anyone.
Any view of life not able to accept this fact is deceptive and unrealistic.
