BeeDee: "I knew it was fiction, but it is so well written, it feels like this really happened." You obviously had an intense emotional reaction to The Shack. I don't have another fictional story to offer, but would a TRUE story about a modern-day, biblical-sized miracle interest you? One full of the tangible, physical evidence everyone seems to crave to verify the impossible? My supernatural encounter with God took place almost ten years ago during the last week of October 2003. That was the week that San Diego County burned down through the middle (427 square miles of it) during a terrible firestorm (the Cedar Fire if you want to Google it).
I'm sure that you, like me, have had moments in life that you recognized as a brush with the unexplainable. For me, it is usually an instantaneous answer to a small and specific prayer. I've had many miracles of that size in my life. The smallest of them required opening my spiritual eyes to see and understand the miracle, but what about a biblical-sized miracle? Are those possible nowadays? Were they EVER possible? Wouldn't it be great if there was a 'Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fiery furnace type of miraculous event we could read about that happened in contemporary times? Say, during a terrible wildfire? What if God showed up and did what we all agree was simply the impossible? Would that strengthen your belief? And what if there were actual photographs to document the miracles? That type of titanic physical miracle would be obvious even to our PHYSICAL eyes, right? Wouldn't that be a great story to read? I have the novel-length true story that does exactly that... "GOD INSIDE THE FIRE: An Amazing True Story." It's a supernatural thriller told from the LIGHT side, not the dark side of the spiritual realm. Not a day goes by (not an hour actually) without me reflecting on what my family was witness to during and after a terrible firestorm here in San Diego in October 2003. It's a story packed full of drama, suspense, life, death, belief, disbelief, and then there's the colossal manifestation of God's presence and the miracles left in His wake... People around the world are being blessed by this impossible narrative in the same way it will bless you, should you decide to read it. Give it a look on Amazon, will you?
