have recently finished working on a challenging series of nineteen
books for Guideposts, and
I hope you will find it as fascinating as I do. The series is titled
COMFORT FROM BEYOND, and it is filled with true stories that explore
the meaning of death and God's promise of heaven. Some of the books
in the series also contain stories of God reaching out to us through
those we know and love to help us find solutions to life's problems.
Stories about times when we may be lost along our way, we may have
taken a wrong turn, we may need to be rescued, or we simply don't
have the answer to our problem. We're about to give up - when suddenly
the way or the answer becomes clear to us.
To me, death is a part of life, not the end of it. Our faith tells
us that death is the doorway to a life more wonderful than anything
we can imagine while we are here on earth. It is the beginning of
forever, a time of peace and joy in the company of God and his beloved
son Jesus. And those who have gone before us will be waiting to
welcome us to heaven.
In the meantime, however, we often have our doubts. when we lose
a loved ones, we hunger for assurance that we will be reunited with
that person someday. We wonder if there really is such a place as
heaven, and if we will eventually live there. How can we be sure?
By listening for the voice of God--as he speaks to us though the
experiences of ordinary people who have heard him.
