    I've watched a few near death experiences and also have had numerous spiritual experiences. I am looking for advice on how to stay patient. Maybe I must stay here for my family's sake. Lord knows if my suicide attempt months ago to be with the lord was successful my family would be devastated because they love me so much. Sigh I remember paul had a tough decision between dying and living for the ministry of Christ. It is really hard when you've had heavenly experiences and life seems so boring and dull compared to what happens in the next life. I am going to stick it out though this time and trust God I come home when it's his will not mine.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Hello, how are you feeling now? I think this year has been really bad on everyone. Please don't take your life. You're extremely valuable. What made you consider doing that to yourself?

    What choice have you got?
    We can't rush the return of Jesus.
    Be patient like the servant who awaits his master's return.

    I didn't want to wait for death to be with the Lord and experience all of his blessings. A lot of the time people seem to think they control whether they live or die and it's just not true. I took hundreds of benadryl and just puked it out and that should have been enough to kill me. It became very clear that despite what I try or plot I am going to be with the Lord when he says so. So I accept that.

    Is that the same thing with ramming your car into a pole (was that an accident or did you do that on purpose?)How do you feel about your life now? Do you feel like you're lacking blessings? Maybe listing things in your life thats good whether big or small will help with that feeling. You'll see how blessed you really are and it'll help you be more patient. It's just my opinion but I think writing down things your grateful for, acts of kindness that people do to you and you do to others will help brighten your out look.

    Humans have a very short life span. If you get to live a hundred, that's not much if you compare your age to the universe, or even planet earth. Your life is just a vapor of existence. Just a blink compared to angels.

    The main problem here is, humans feel the flow of time. It is as if it's forever. To those in heaven, they see many souls leaving earth every second. People are never alone when they leave the planet. About 5 million people die every month. That's a lot of souls.

    There was no intent to hit that pole.

    Just remember your family cares for you. Might sound annoying to hear but some people don't even have that. Consider that a blessing that you have people that care about your well being. I do hope you feel better.
