Death is a topic that many people are afraid to talk about. It’s not uncommon for individuals to experience fear and anxiety when thinking about what will happen to them when they die, especially if they don’t have faith in an afterlife. However, I want to encourage you by saying that death doesn’t have to be something we’re afraid of.
As believers in Christ, we can take comfort in knowing that we’ll spend eternity with Him in heaven. Romans 10:9-10 reminds us that all it takes is declaring Jesus as Lord and believing in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead – then we’re saved! I know firsthand how much peace this promise brings because before coming to faith, I didn’t care about death at all. But once my eyes were opened, I realized just how important it is for us to make sure our souls are right with God so we can be confident about where we’ll end up after this life ends. So if you’re feeling uneasy or uncertain about death, please know there’s hope – seek out a relationship with God today and find the peace He promises! ~ Bill Greguska
Revelation 21:4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Many people fear death, but death is not to worry about, especially if you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. I do not fear death, although the thought of suffering is something that I have had to take to the Lord in prayer. Whatever the Lord’s will is, I agree with all my chips. Some people fear death and dying, but there ought not to be any fear!
Take A Look Back At Your Life, And Where Is It Going?
Are You Fearful Of Death?
Death is a topic that many people shy away from, for it signifies the end of life as we know it. It can be daunting to consider what may lie beyond this earthly existence, and sometimes the fear can become overwhelming. However, I believe that with faith in God and His promise of eternal life in heaven, there is no need to be afraid. Through Romans 10:9-10, we are reassured that simply confessing our belief in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will guarantee us salvation and everlasting peace. As someone who once lived without regard for death or what lay beyond it, I am grateful for the knowledge that my future is secure thanks to my relationship with God. Death may come for all of us someday; however, we have the power to choose where we spend eternity by accepting God’s love and grace into our hearts. So let us not fear death but instead embrace each day with hope and joy knowing that even after death comes new life through faith in Christ!
My Mom Did Not Fear Death!
My mom knew the Lord ,and she did not fear death, yet just like me, she was not fond of the idea of possibly suffering in pain growing old, yet she and I both were prepared to do whatever the Lord’s will was going to be.
You have heard it say to keep your fork at the dinner table because the best part is coming: the Desert. When I die, I want to have a fork in my casket to remind others that the best is yet to come, heaven!
My first experience of heaven is, the best yet to come to me, was my best friend, Steve Mader, I was 16 years old, and his death hit me very hard. So hard that it lead me to find so-called comfort in alcohol and drugs. If I had reached out to someone to talk things out, it might not have been so traumatic of an experience that his death brought me.
My mother, Diana Greguska, was another painful death. But my mom lived to be 93, and I had the opportunity to take care of her for the last eight years of her life since she helped me my entire life! You can read more about my mom in a diary that I wrote in honor of her life. ~ Bill Greguska
