God has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from the beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV All men who are honest with themselves are conscious of the belief that there is more to life than our times on earth. The purpose and goal of this book is to help you understand that before this earth and man were created, God already had a plan and purpose for your life. That during this "lifetime" on earth, He is preparing you for that plan and purpose He has for your life. Picture in your mind the human spinal cord that starts at the brain and then runs through the whole body with nerve endings reaching the toes of the feet. This book is an attempt to explain the plan and purpose of God for your life as a continuous cord beginning in eternity before creation of the earth and man, running through man's time on earth, and then returning back into eternity.
