I love to read an inspirational story about how a person’s life has been changed by God being in charge of it. I don’t often preach or share my personal story about God being in my life. I know that I should do it more often because I feel God pushing me to share my thoughts and opinions often. Yet, I’m not a good solider of faith because I don’t always follow the requests he gives me to do. I got the chance to review [easyazon_link identifier=”0800759494″ locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]90 Minutes in Heaven Book[/easyazon_link]Review thanks to FlyBy Promotions, and it sent chills throughout my being while I was reading it. He also shared one Bible verse about God’s plan that has really inspired me.
About the Book
Don Piper was on the way home from a conference when his car was crushed by a semitruck that crossed into his lane. Medical personnel said he died instantly. While his body lay lifeless inside the ruins of his car, Piper experienced the glories of heaven, awed by its beauty and music. Ninety minutes after the wreck, while a minister prayed for him, Piper miraculously returned to life on earth with only the memory of inexpressible heavenly bliss. Then his grueling recovery began.
This movie edition includes a new preface from Don, true stories from readers about the effect [easyazon_link identifier=”0800759494″ locale=”US” tag=”tidbitofexp-20″]90 Minutes in Heaven[/easyazon_link] has had on their lives, and more.

If you haven’t gathered it already, I truly took pleasure in reading this book. This story will move you in ways you don’t expect. If you haven’t had a personal experience similar, then you may not grasp this story as much as I did. However, it’s such a gratifying account to read that you’ll be glad you took the time to read it.
I have several favored parts of this book. However, the part that stood out the most to me was the Longing for Home section. It reminded me how much I have let God down. I started this blog as a means of helping those who have been abused like I was as a child, and how I have dealt with it through the years and maintained my faith in God.
I find it HARD to share those parts of myself with you. It’s not an easy task to do. However, like Piper, I have an experience that allows me to bring comfort to people have been in similar situations. I feel I can provide them the knowledge that God truly does have a plan for lives despite the pain that happened to us.
There are several bible verses about God’s plan for us. He has made it clear in several verses that he has a plan for us long before we are born. I don’t personally believe he lets/plans out the bad things happen to us in our lives. I believe that because we all have our own free will to make our decisions.
[Tweet “RT: I DO believe that God takes the bad things that do happen and turns them into good things!”]
Like Piper, the verse that sticks out to me the most is 2 Cor. 1: 3-4 NIV. This verse provides hope and even encouragement. It tells me that even though I’ve gone through the darkness of life there is a VAST silver lining. There is a plan for him to make it worth the pain and the heartache. If I follow his guidance, he will show me how myself AND OTHERS will benefit.Please PIN this image to your to-read list board. You’ll be glad that you recommended it to others!
This is such an inspirational story that they decided to turn it into a movie too. I’m eager to see the movie! There’s even a video devotional study guide too.
