Divine Intervention Story
Parapsychology to God
Parapsychology is the study of paranormal psychological phenomena, such as extra-sensory perception and survival of consciousness after death.
I am now a changed person who has found true peace and contentment. Jesus divine intervention changed me from one radical viewpoint to another "radical" viewpoint over 20 years ago. I met my Lord who saved me from myself and who gave me eternal hope that I had never known before.
When I was young, I went to a somewhat liberal church and learned of God, but did not know that Jesus was the Messiah and the one to save me from my sins. I knew that the God of the Old Testament was real -- after all, Charlton Heston said so in the movie, "The Ten Commandments."
My knowledge of God did not change for quite a while. During those younger years, I did become interested in "spiritual" things. I had not yet felt God's divine intervention. The only problem was that those "spiritual" things were not of God. On the contrary, they were of the Devil.
I discovered that the Devil has power. I was very interested in astrology and other paranormal things. By the time I went to college, I continued this interest even though I periodically met a few annoying Christians along the way.
I attended Central Washington University as a Sociology major. At that time, I had a very liberal mind set -- so much so that I believed in the right of individuals to have abortion, as well as the tolerance of other social issues that are contrary to the kingdom of God.
My minor in college was in Mass Media Communications, but initially I thought that I wanted to have a minor in parapsychology (if only Central had offered that.) I was always intrigued by the supernatural and it was not until I had a parapsychology course through the psych department that I realized that I was tapping into something that I did not want to explore any further.
During the parapsychology course, we explored and participated in many supernatural topics including the study of ESP, levitation and out-of-body experiences. It was during one of these out-of-body experiences that I thought, "I ain't doin' this anymore...it's too spooky and I like to have my feet on the ground, thank you very much." Hence, that was the end of parapsychology "spiritual" quest.
After college, I married a wonderful and delightfully amusing man who brought me such joy and laughter. Scott and I were financially poor in those beginning years, but we had a blast with our precious kitties, Para and Albert.
Yet, "having a blast" doesn't mean contentment or peace. I discovered that I was running in circles. I remember driving to Mount Vernon one day, and I was looking out at the fields, and I felt as if my heart was sinking into despair. I felt that I was falling into a pit and that I needed someone to save me. I recalled the message of those "annoying" Christians that I met many years prior and the comfort of those Bible stories that I had heard in church as a child. At that moment, I began to cry and I asked Jesus to come and save me. I asked Him into my heart, I repented of my sins, and I became a changed person.
Now I know the power of God of the universe, and I know what true contentment and peace mean. I know that true joy comes from Him and that He can change anyone for His divine glory. God is good, God's divine intervention is true contentment.
