90 Minutes in Heaven

I thank god everyday for my normal life. Most don't think about how lucky they are to have all 5 senses, to be able to eat, and walk. However this is something I thank god for every night I pray. I see it all to often. A person who is unable to eat normally and then needing tube feedings. Or someone who is unable to walk.

I just recently read a book called 90 minutes in heaven. If you haven't read it you need to. This book is written kind of poorly in my opinion but I think that makes it feel that more real. A normal person wrote this book not some famous author. I thanked god for my health on a daily basis before but after reading this book I've became ever more thankful. 

This book teaches you to be thankful for what you have, it gives you reassurance of heaven when needed but most of all it shows you that you need to be prepared because you can lose your life at any moment. 

Here is the book....


Here is Don Piper's interview on the 700 club...
 


After speaking with a man I met today(which was a preacher) I have decided it is important to share my beliefs about near death experiences. I do not know if I actually believe in these experiences where people say they have gone to heaven and returned to earth. I am not saying I don't believe in it either. I believe God is very capable of doing this if he wanted too. The reason I enjoyed this book wasn't because the man told a story of going to heaven, I enjoyed it because after his accident he was thankful for the level of functioning he regained and I enjoyed how strong he became spiritually. What this man has experienced has made him a stronger person and has strengthen his walk with the lord.  His story of heaven has brightened many days and is a great witness to lost souls.

  1. We have that book...I remember starting it, but never finished it. (I'm a book hoarder, and I really need to get to reading all the ones I haven't yet)! Perhaps I should pick it up again.
