Heaven is for Real

Recently I read the book “Heaven is for Real” by Todd Burpo. I am not sure if this story is a 100% true account of an experience or if it is just the imagination of a young boy.  Online blogger’s and scholars have come away with mixed responses of the validity of this story. I am still processing all of the information and have not yet formed an opinion.

This book was written in order to tell the story of Colton Burpo. Colton had a near death experience and believes he spent time in heaven with Jesus. Once I started reading this book I could not put it down. I won’t spoil the book for anyone by posting all of the things Colton claims to have seen and heard while in heaven. His tale is very detailed and intriguing.  True or not it left me with a lot to think about.

Thoughts I am left with:

  • Life on earth is so short and too often we focus on the things that really don’t matter.
  • Children are very much loved by God.
  • Our job is to spread the gospel to everyone at all times.
  • It’s called “Faith” because you have to believe without having tangible proof.
  • God works things in people’s lives for various reasons unknown to us.
  • Life events can be overwhelming at times but God always has a plan.
  • We spend too much time doubting God.
