Good morning Folks ~ This post is about a recent book I chose to review from Blogging 4 Books.
The book has inspired me to continue to live my life trusting in Jesus for everything, to see heaven on earth now and to experience Jesus’ love throughout each and every day.
This book is gripping from the very beginning. Steven tells of his life as a young man, then going into the Navy and the start of becoming part of the Navy Seals. His experience with death and his experience in heaven that he had will touch your heart. His description of heaven and being with Jesus was so real and wonderful! I read this book twice, with time in between, and have been truly blessed by reading it, it will be a book to go back to for encouragement in living this life in the present. It makes me more excited and looking forward to being physically with Jesus forever.
From the book: “God’s love transforms. How deep, how attentive that love is. How encompassing. How careful. How complex. God knows. He has a purpose. He loves each of us intimately. Nothing in our lives is wasted. Our experiences, even the pain matters. He sees them. He will use them for good. He isn’t missing a thing.
The communion between God and us should develop, deepen.
Love is the language of heaven. True, good, honest love. Love that cares and moves to redeem and reclaim pain and loss. Christ is God the Father wrapping his arm around the broken. And on the earth, he does that through his people.
Heaven intersects all aspects of our lives here. We just need to recognize it.”
We are all important to God. He has promised to never leave or forsake us. His love is a gift.
There is so much ‘food’ for the soul in this book. I’ve barely touched the surface with these few quotes.

Jesus is my strength each and every day. Through every ordinary day things, through joys and sorrows, He fills me with love, joy and peace. I am thankful for His many blessings.
