About life before conception

Eternal life has no beginning and no end
Okay, so Breath of Life is about us being there long before we entered the human time zone. Ecclesiastes 12:7 says that our body returns to the ground where it came from and our spirit (Hebrew: ruach, or breath of life) returns to God who gave it. Well, it can only return to God if it has been there before!
Would that explain why we sometimes experience a deja-vu? Would that clarify why certain places or situations look familiar while we have never been there before, well, at least not consciously. Maybe...
I have given this a lot of thought. As Christians we believe we have eternal life in Jesus Christ. Eternal means 'without beginning or end'. We were always there... we just didn't have a human body. So I made up this character Sorek, he is not necessarily a baby or a child, although he lives in his mother's womb. He describes the incredible process of creation, the weaving together of spirit, soul, and body into one human being... made in the image and likeness of God!
Don't be afraid, I didn't go weird on this. I have based my story on biblical principles and scriptures.

If you haven't done so already, please pick up a copy and let me know what you think about life before conception!

I'd never thought about things from this angle before. Like Susan, I'll add the book to my wish list:)

I love it that you say Sorek is not just 'another boy; he is a voice!" I look forward to hearing this voice :)

Thank you Susa, KAren, Dorothy, for checking out Sorek's weblog. He is indeed a VOICE to our nation!

Sounds very interesting, Marja! You have a way of putting things that I've read numerous times, into thoughts that I've never considered before. Have a blessed week!

By the way - I love your background!
