I’m on Day 6, yey! I don’t feel like writing all the time and this blogging challenge makes me sit on my chair and face my laptop. It’s a good practice. It’s not hard for me to come up of what will I write about because when I’m not writing, ideas just flow in my head and I keep it there until I finally sit and type on my computer. It’s just hard to make myself go to my working desk and start writing.
Anyways, today’s writing task is to write about what you are afraid of. I didn’t grow up close to my dad because he went abroad when I was 9, he came back when I was 19. When he came back, I felt like he wanted to control my life and my initial reaction was to rebel. And I thought my dad didn’t mean anything to me, but when we were about to lose him and eventually lost him, it shook me really hard. And now I believe what other people saying is true, it is when someone is already gone you will truly realize how he/she means to you.
I’m afraid of losing someone that I love. I always brush it off when I think of it. I don’t think I will ever be ready of losing anyone that I love. We will all die someday and when I think of that moment of dying, it also scares me. I always want to think that God’s grace will get me through and give me peace when I reach that moment. I love this verse from Psalm 23:4.
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
It’s comforting to know that Jesus is like a shepherd and I am like a sheep. He takes care of me and I feel secure when he is with me. I believe when that moment comes, Jesus will comfort me and give me peace until my last breath.
How about you? What are you afraid of?
