30 Days of Thanks: Day 29

Today is a more somber affair.

I'm thankful for the defeat of death. In reading 1 Corinthians 15 (one of my favorite chapters in Scripture), everything seems to become clear. In thinking that the first words spoken of the risen God were assuaging the fear of the dead one. Do not be afraid.

The fear of death is something I have struggled with my entire life and I doubt that fear will ever truly fade. But, joyfully, maybe there is yet hope.
