Close Encounter of the Divine Kind

What’s more paranormal than the Big Guy Himself?  Um…nothing.  FYI, I’m not even remotely preachy or judgmental and my blogging won’t go into that no-man’s land either, but I’m absolutely and completely a God girl.  He rocks.

I had a moment.  At the copy machine.  Not a life-changing moment, but a moment I will never forget.  It wasn’t a big deal—I had told a friend I’d pray for her sister.  I was waiting at the copy machine.  Two birds, one rubber band, eh?  I prayed, nothing fancy or memorable.


I’m soooo glad I was the only one at work at that moment.  Pow! God belted me like a cream pie to the face with a big, fat heavenly hug.  Adequately explaining an encounter with Him in words is impossible.  A hit of liquid sunshine times a thousand.  You’re so overwhelmed, you want to cry, laugh, fall down, and dance, all at the same time (and I do not dance).  The irrefutable knowledge you are luh-huved, no doubts, no questions, no reservations.

I don’t know why He chose that moment at the copy machine for a supernatural smackdown, but whenever I have a bad day, I think back to that burned-into-my-brain moment.  Bam!  Another hit of insta-joy.

So, you have an up-close-and-personal moment with the Boss upstairs you want to share?

And if you’re looking for fresh some rockin’ music, my favorite band Skillet has a brand spankin’ new album out on June 25 – Rise.  Check out the title song here.




  1. Too many stories to count, but enough to know he’s usually got his fingers wound through my life in a way that’s only meant for my benefit.
