Is your life everything you want it to be?
It took death, actually dying twice, for Paul E. Perkins to realize how far his priorities had slipped. A miracle man who survived a heart and kidney transplant in 2014, whose life’s purpose was defined by a glimpse into Heaven, Paul now challenges others to learn from his mistakes without having to walk through the dramatic events he shares in his story.
Paul’s Daily Challenge for You:
- “No matter what — never, ever give up!”
- Ask yourself daily, Am I living life defined?
“Days and weeks turned into months of serious infection. My body was worn out from resisting. It seemed like I’d never feel good again. My mind was exhausted from clinging to hope when things looked hopeless. I’d had enough.
When I was in the hospital, shortly after my surgery, a couple of doctors tried to prepare me for the worst. But I refused to listen to their bleak prognosis. Now, in the privacy of my own haunted thoughts, I wondered if they had been right.”
“When you want to know why you act the way you do, it’s good to look at your ancestors. A lot of their traits slip in, and unless you slow down to think about it, you might not realize the importance of the blood and genes that run through your body. Coming to the end of your life wakes you up to this fact.”
