As I battled for my life there were many nights when I did not know if I would witness the rising of our sun, so I fought my sleep to prolong my consciousness, a mental prisoner shackled to my thoughts of death I became, many faithless and sleepless nights I endured. The fear of everlasting darkness kept my eyes open wide, red and watery, countless woke nights I had trying to acquire more conscious time on this earth. As sleep deprivation began to effect my mental state I grabbed my Bible and prayed to the Lord, He blessed me, He spoke to me through His Scripture: “Without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exist and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him (Hebrews 11:6) I sought the Lord earnestly, He rewarded me, my fear of death I have no longer, He freed me from the shackles that once held me captive, I am blessed, faith I have now, I can finally close my eyes and sleep in peace, goodnight.

“And free those who are all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”

Hebrews 2:5
