My brother lay close to death from brain cancer at only 8 years old. He couldn't speak anymore, so one blink of the eyes signified "yes" and two blinks meant "no." My Dad asked, "Are you afraid, Paul?"

Paul's eyes went wild and I felt completely helpless to offer any comfort. What did I, as a 16-year-old know about death? How could I assuage his fears? I couldn't, so I retreated - not wanting to feel powerless and unable to comfort him. I spent less and less time at home and avoided him. I thought if I spent more time with him it might hurt more when he died.

Thankfully, the Bible has wonderful promises for us. "We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them." (Romans 8:28)

God used the devastating situation of watching my brother die to bring me into a ministry that enabled me to help others in the way I couldn't help my own brother.

Are you curious about the surprising secret that will help you never fear death again? Read on!
