Homecoming, My Story

[Excerpt by Rev. Carolyn R. Stokes in Divine Love for the Soul - God’s Gift of Love]

One winter day, I was traveling alone, through the park, on my way home from parochial school. I decided to take a detour to the ice skating ring. Oh, I may have forgotten to mention, I was also a tomboy. No, I didn’t have ice skates and my older brother had warned me that if I fell on the ice, I would knock all my teeth out. That didn’t stop me from using my school satchel as a toboggan by running and sliding on my stomach, across the ice. By the time, I got cold enough to stop; it had started snowing, again. As I was approaching the cresting of pilled snow, on the edge of the ring, I saw my Aunt Corrine. She was dressed in a flowing light blue dress and medium blue mantle on her shoulder that went down and covered up her feet. Her hair was in a long page boy style. She looked tall, radiant and calm. I didn’t stop to consider why she didn’t have a coat on because it was cold. I just felt an overwhelming sense of peace. I wasn’t cold anymore.

She looked at me and told me she had a message for me to give to my mother. She said she was fine and for my mom not to worry. Everything would be okay. Then she was....

God is Love

[Excerpt by Rev. Dr. David R. Lampron in Divine Love for the Soul - God’s Gift of Love]

Had not my own soul yearned for a more personal confirmation of God’s Love, the chances are that I would have passed through my mortal life ongoingly plagued with doubts and a lack of fulfillment. Rationally, I knew that no material answer to prayer and no external miracle, so-called, would ever serve to absolutely confirm the Reality of God’s Love within myself. Ah, but there was the not as yet discovered key: “within”! God’s Love could not be absolutely confirmed from without. Might it instead be confirmed from within?

For quite some time my soul gave me no peace. As a child of God, I could not conceive that absolutely no communication with God was possible. If I could pray directly to God, certainly God, so much greater than I, could respond directly to me if He chose to do so. “Could,” yes, but would He? And, if so, what was I to do to encourage His response, not even knowing how to proceed? Would I even recognize His response, should it come?

There was no way that I could preconceive what a direct response from God would be like. All I can tell you is that I wanted God. With all the longing of my soul, that had been slowly but surely....

In His Arms of Love - A Heart Beat Away

[Excerpt by Holly Bianco in Divine Love for the Soul - God’s Gift of Love]

I didn’t know how much it really affected me until I had a powerful conscious-dream about those emotions. I say conscious-dream, because it is hard to exactly describe an experience that you have when you are not moving in your body but yet you are fully conscious of your senses.

As I was awakening from sleep, my soul felt this deep distress and hurtfulness come to the surface, which immediately led me to cry out to my Heavenly Father. I literally heard my soul’s voice cry out “Father!” and there He was. I felt His Presence in a second and with it a soul vision of Him, where He had these shoulders that I could cry upon. I never knew how close God was to me - a heartbeat away. I was quite surprised; it felt as if my soul knew where He was all along but just never reached out enough to touch Him.

As He came to me I could feel Him speaking to my soul, “I am your Father, and I’m here to comfort you - here is my Love, receive it now.” At that moment, I could feel His Love flooding into my soul and His Love permeating and warming my heart region. As I fully awakened in my body, I could still feel the warmth of His Love radiating in my heart....

Finding the Truth about My Father

[Excerpt by Judy Gebhardt in Divine Love for the Soul - God's Gift of Love]

I have had many unbelievable happy, spiritual experiences, and then the bubble burst - the time came that I had to face my maker and stand before God in all my weakness. It took me a long time to realize what was happening. I was living the experience of people that had already passed over. According to the messages, when we pass over we are greeted by our family and friends and have a happy reunion, then we are taken to the abode that is befitting our soul’s condition. I had no inkling that it was going to happen to me while I was still a mortal, but it did.

When my soul was taken to that place of my spiritual condition, I thought I had died and gone to hell. I was conscious and thinking to myself, “Well, I guess I am dead now, and my family has found my body and probably having my funeral.”

I awoke three days later in the hospital and the doctor told me that the police had found me sitting on the curb of the sidewalk crying. I never had any recollection of what had happened. All I know is that I was in another state of consciousness….

God’s Love Carried Me Through the Storms

[Excerpt by Kathryn Deutschmann in Divine Love for the Soul – God’s Gift of Love]

Looking back on my life and reflecting on how very fortunate I am, even through all of the storms; I have always had God with me and had faith in Him and His love. These storms took on many appearances, such as issues with health, family, finances and loss - some were short in duration, while others seemed to never quit and left an aftermath of clean-up.

My first memory of knowing my belief in God was at four years of age. I was brought up Catholic and have some very fond memories of spending time with the Nuns of our Parish and listening to their wonderful stories about God and His Love for us.

At 16 years old, I was introduced to a book, True Gospel Revealed Anew by Jesus, which our neighbors gave to my Mother to read. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down. I will always remember the feeling of suddenly “knowing” that I found the truth – the narrow pathway….
