Not much more depressing, than staring into a hole, a freshly prepared grave site.
Can a tomb or a gravesite be the place of beginnings, even though it’s physically the end?
God’s way, and the ways of his kingdom might seem radical, the journey with God, does not go from life to death, but from Death To Life.
God’s ways are not our ways, this world could be said to be upside down. There’s a saying, ( paraphrased) ” we should be sad at the coming in (to life) but rejoice in the going out ( from life).
And this is not to say, this time on Earth is not a good thing. It is a good thing, as it is a gift from God.
Yet it is human nature to know what is on the other side of physical death. The journey to real true eternal life has to go through the grave, or ” the way of the Earth.”
We have to face, and endure endings to find new beginnings.
Seems we must face hopelessness to find Hope.
We must face death to be born again.
