Do you ever think about death? Or what might come after death?
But what really happens after you die? As a Christian, I believe that you either go to heaven or to hell. It’s that simple. And life is about making the right choices and following God to make sure that I don’t end up in hell. It’s a strange concept to wrap my head around, even now as an adult. But I have always believed that doubt is a natural thing, for the Bible says that even if your faith is the size of a mustard seed, it can move mountains. I’m pretty sure my faith is larger than a mustard seed, but it is also mixed in with some doubt.
However, maybe that’s the point? It doesn’t really how much you doubt, you still have to choose which side of things you want to end up on. Even in the little things, I’ve been taught that as a Christian we need to train our minds to focus on the good things in life, and the things acceptable to God. So not to let my mind (or mouth) stray into gossip (a personal struggle), or impure thoughts or words. To make a conscious decision to refocus the mind when it starts to wonder.
Speaking of wondering….are my words starting to just drift off? I don’t think I’m making much sense. I definitely didn’t answer the prompt, but I don’t think I could anyways.
I think in death, just as in life, we want to be surrounded by our loved ones and have a peaceful existence. I kind of refuse to think that there is nothing out there after death. It can’t just be a black void. I find solace and comfort in my religious beliefs that there is something after death. I think a lot of people do, no matter what religion they follow.
