Holy Ghost Fire
Faith is the Answer
Is Death a Dark Valley or a Rainbow Bridge?
by Norman Vincent Peale
Check out this short story on faith being the answer:
"If a baby not yet born, still tucked under his mother's heart,
could think, he might say to himself, "This is a great world
where I now am. It is warm. I'm taken care of. I like it." And
then someone might say to him, "But you're not going to stay
here. You have to move on. You're going to die out of this place.
You're going into another world." That baby would look upon the
process of birth as if it were death, since it would be the end of
the pleasant state he was in. And he would protest, "I don't
want to die, I want to stay here." What to us is birth, to him
is death, and he resists it. But the day comes when he does die to
that life and is born into our world.
What happens to him? He is cradled in loving arms. Everyone that
comes near loves him. He is the king of the world he surveys. Then he
begins to grow and he finds life good. He has some difficulties, but
he loves GOD and people love him. And he loves this world with its
seasons, its beauty, its mysteries and its human companionship.
Finally he gets to be an old man and he is told, "You have to
die." He protests, "I don't want to die. I love this world.
I like to feel the sun on my face, and the cool rain. I love the
faces of my wife and children. I don't want to die." But he does
die to this world and is born into the next.
Now can you believe that all of a sudden the character of GOD and the
constitution of the universe are going to be changed so that a person
will be born into a place of gloom and terror, or will be left in a
state of nothingness? That is preposterous.......
He will awaken to find himself young again. Loving faces will greet
him; loving hands will touch him. More beautiful sunlight will
surround him; sweeter music will sound in his ears. All tears will be
wiped from his eyes, and he will say, "Why was I so afraid of
death, when, as I now know, it is LIFE?"
When we come to the sad experience of losing someone you love, cling
to this conviction of the goodness of GOD and believe that your dear
one has gone not into darkness, but into light. So much depends on
your point of view! You can think of death as a DARK VALLEY--or as a
RAINBOW BRIDGE between two marvelous worlds, a bridge that all our
departed loved ones have crossed and which we too, will cross one day
to be reunited with them.......
