Glimpse Of Heaven

Friday, as you all know, I had an MRI of my brain and eyes done. Because it was involving my eyes, I had to keep my eyes closed the entire time. At different times during the hour long procedure, I had some amazing experiences. I thought I had passed on, seriously. I thought I had arrived in heaven. I was looking around for Jesus, my momma, and my big brother. All I was seeing was a very white, pure, very beautiful, brightly shining existence. There was no pain, and I was not scared. In my heart, and my mind, I kept saying over, and over, I have died. I truly thought I had passed on to eternity. When the sweet lady that was performing the procedure on me, came in to give me an injection for the last thirty minutes of the MRI, and pulled me out of the machine, and I realized I had not passed on, I began to cry. I do not know what the Lord was trying to tell me, but I am at peace, no matter what. I praise You Lord for watching over me, and for the glimpse of Your beautiful Kingdom. I love You Lord.

I love reading your posts and glimpsing into your world. I'm inspired by your strength and faith. Your commitment to our Father draws me in and makes me stronger too.

This experience, however, has taken me back a bit because I can't imagine your feelings at the time your realized that you were not in Heaven. You must be in awe of what occurred, wondering what and why -- yet your faith allows you to accept with gratitude the gift you were given.

I know that God has a very special place prepared for you, and it sounds as though He was giving you a preview of the marvels to come.

Thank you for sharing such an inspirational experience.

Oh, Denise! I envy you that brief repose. No wonder you started to cry when you realized you were still on this side of Jordan! Thanks for sharing your beautiful preview with the rest of us.

Beautiful, Denise. And to think how you went in for an MRI. Maybe the MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) demonstrated what was in your heart too. ;) The desires of your heart showed up on this test my friend.

Praying for those results. He's way ahead of them though.

Blessings Denise... WOW and what wonderful, perfect peace! I'm so glad that God's glory was magnified this way for you while you wait. We are standing together for His favor and wisdom for your results! So thankful that you were so filled with His comfort and peace. (I know I wasn't during mine). I would have cried too!

Love, peace & prayers lil sis,

I know the peace you speak of as I have felt it when I have been in the MRI machine. I have MRI's every other year to check up on my brain after surgery for removal of a brain tumor. I pray that the peace you have experienced will continue with you as you go through this medical difficulty. Blessings, Joanna
