Jim was never a religious man. When it came to matters of God and faith, he was ambivalent. But as he lay in the hospital bed, clinically dead for more than 11 hours, his consciousness was transported to the wonders of Heaven and the horrors of hell. When he returned to this world, he brought back the missing piece his soul had been longing for.

This story has touched my very core. I have been taken back several times in my life throughout this series. I had a life threatening illness 19years a go, I was on 100% Oxygen . I was put on powerful antibiotics by IV , The Consultant said he would have to keep me on medication for the rest of my life. Through prayer and constant talking to God my Spiritual life has strengthened to the point were I hear God's voice in many situations. Through prayer asking God for a miracle for a sister in Christ as she had Cancer and given two weeks to live, I talked to God like never before, His answer came when I asked her son how she was, his answer surprised me when he gave me her new number and told me she was well and at home, I phoned her straight away after three rings she answered and straight away I could hear laughter in her voice, the cancer had gone. I've believed that those who trust in God and The Name of Jesus have Guardian Angels around them. Amen 💕
