There was a time in my life that I became afraid of sunset. Whenever I saw the change in color of the sky, I became numb, my hands were shaking and sweat a lot then cold feet. As I walked slowly to go home, I felt like I am slowly fading away.

Every night I prayed to God to heal me. I prayed religiously and sincerely. When day time, again I would pray to him. Somehow my faith in God healed me.

Now, I am not afraid of sunset. I realized that I connected sunset with death. What I am really afraid of is death. I am not ready to die because I haven’t accepted God in my heart. As I become more prayerful I learned that with God there’s nothing to be afraid of.

I got to see sunset now as beautiful scenery. The pristine beauty of sun as it slowly kissed the sea was so breathtaking.
