Rejoice

Did you know that you are eternally loved by God?

(Listen to my song “My Lord and My God” on YouTube by clicking HERE)

Psalm 98:4

Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth; break into song; sing praise.

There is much to be grateful for…so why do we focus on the negative things?

We need to attend to the things that are unjust and in need of restoration…but why not do it from a place of praise?

We have life!

We have eternal life! (That’s ETERNAL!)

Death and life are part of a continuum.

There really is no death…just a transition…a rebirth to new life.

This is the lesson Jesus taught us…and so do the thousands of Near Death Experiencers who have given their testimony.

I have met several of them and have read dozens and dozens of accounts.

They experienced the death of their bodies but were later resuscitated.

And what they learned from their NDE was that their consciousness did not die…but went to an eternal realm of love and beauty.

I experienced just a tiny taste of this myself in what could be described as an STE or Spiritually Transformative Experience.

It happened during my lowest moment when hospitalized for a ruptured appendix.

That’s when I experienced a Wave of Love that enveloped me.

When you know that you are loved thoroughly and unconditionally forever…your life changes.

And you really can’t help singing and praising God!

God loves you, everyone, and all creation the same way.
