I’m reading about Don Piper who was crushed in a head on collision with an 18 wheeler, was dead at the accident scene for 90 minutes, and then revived when a pastor, who happened to be passing by, felt lead to pray for him. He gives an amazing account of what those 90 minutes were like. He says he went to heaven. (90 Minutes in Heaven by Don Piper)
The good and the bad for Don.
Good: He was permitted to experience heaven for 90 minutes.
Bad: He was permitted to experience heaven for 90 minutes.
Now that he’s alive he finds himself physically devastated and in constant excruciating pain. Pain all the morphine in the world won’t touch. Having had a taste of heaven, he longs to go there, and he struggles with the difficulties of remaining in this life on earth.
Then he does something that changes everything. He gives his whole life over to God. And the great thing about giving your whole life over to God is He gets all of it — even the heartbreaks and pain.
The great thing about giving your whole life over to God is He gets all of it — even the heartbreaks and pain.
From that point, his whole life turned around.
So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.
1 Peter 5:6-7
