Feelings of deja vu

We have all experienced feelings of “deja vu” in the which we say to a complete stranger, “It is as if I know you from somewhere.” There may be more truth to that than we realize. As spirit children of our Heavenly Father, we lived in His presence prior to coming here to take on a physical body, and to be tried to see if we would live worthy to return to His presence. To such did the poet Wordsworth allude in his inspired “Ode. Intimations of Immortality…” Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting. The soul that rises with us, our life’s Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, and cometh from afar: Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come, from God who is our home…” Indeed, to Jeremiah the Lord declared “Before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee…” (Jeremiah 1:5) and to Job: “Where was thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare if thou hast understanding…When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?” (Job 38: 4,7) Is there not then reason to rejoice? For we are sons and daughters of God, and in the words of the Psalmist “What is man that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and crowned him with glory and honor…” (Psalms 8: 4,5
