A bright light shone at the end of a long, dark tunnel and it beckoned her. She stared at the light. It looked familiar but she couldn’t place it. Then it dawned on her.
Am I dead?
Inside the light, her deceased family members stood next to a man in white robes. He was tall with white hair and his face was aged but kind.
She faltered. It couldn’t be. Heaven wasn’t real; God didn’t exist. She’d spent years convincing herself it was nothing more than a fairy tale. There was no proof any of it was real.
But there he was—irrefutable evidence of his existence.
She’d been wrong. She fell to her knees and bowed her head. “Forgive me Father.”
God replied, “You are forgiven.”
In the distance she heard a faint, “Clear!”
Suddenly everything went dark and her body jerked violently. Her heart lurched and started beating again. Her eyes fluttered open and the emergency room lights shone in her eyes. Nurses and doctors bustled around her.
When she recovered, she shared her story and newfound mission to encourage others to accept God’s existence through her best selling novel and public access show, “Finding God.”
