Fear of Dying
Comments by Dena Hunt - 14 Dec 2004

Heidi,

You remind me of a passage I read in C.S. Lewis once. Roughly paraphrased, he said he "knocked himself about" much as you do; then he'd reflect on that as evidence of humility; then he'd find himself being proud of his humility, and therefore ashamed again, until the whole thing simply became tiresome. And he'd hand it up to God with a prayer: YOU sort it out--I can't. And you know--that's very good advice; in fact, it's the best!

My own experience when I get in those circles you describe has been a vision of the Lord laughing at me.... But once, I fancied he was yawning, and I got the distinct impression that he would like me to know that I'd be happier if I paid more attention to him and less to my shortcomings.
