Three Second Miracle

All life has a hidden secret some of you may or may not know There are miracles all around us We all get one before we go It’s a truly amazing gift handed down from up above It’s our last three seconds here on Earth when God shows us, we are truly loved Once our heart stops beating time as we know it, no longer applies There are no words that could ever explain it but trust me, you’ll be pleasantly surprised Within this three second miracle you will experience every emotion known to man All fear and pain will leave your body don’t try to understand it, none of us can This poem is not fiction I’ll now explain so you understand My life ended ten years ago I briefly stepped outside of this mortal land I was thirty-nine years young a heart attack caused me to code I experienced first-hand this miracle then I was brought back for reasons untold.

Amazing Mark - it certainly was not your time - God still had plans for you. I have seen three people die , my mom, my dad and my father in law, all were very sick and my dad was only 65. I saw fear in t his eyes, my Dad was a religions man he had cancer but a heart attack was what killed him, maybe it was the pain from the heart attack that hurt him. I studied for 5 years and passed my honors in Biblical not theological studies. I applaud your faith, I believe, but fear death. Hugs JP

I had a widow maker heart attack. I will say the pain was the worst I could ever imagine but right at the end when you come to the realization that you are going to die. There is a peace that comes over you. Imagine when you were a child and something happened that scared you. Your Mom or your Dad put their arms around you and said it was going to be alright. It kind of felt like that. I could definitely feel a presence and it was scary anymore.

There is nothing to fear. It’s a very profound experience
