Have you experienced divine intervention?

Disclosure: I’m not religious, but I believe there is something bigger than us. I don’t think much past that.

That being said, when I was 17 I was driving on a two-way, 5 lane highway and a car pulled out right in front of me. I was going about 60 and would have directly T-boned the car if I hadn’t locked up my breaks and lost control of the car. I slid across the right lane, left lane, through the turn lane, and straight for a Dodge Ram head-on. There was a caddy beside him, so he also had nowhere to go. I felt oddly calm watching that huge grill coming right for me. I gripped the wheel with both hands and closed my eyes, 100% positive that was it for me. The wheel suddenly jerked in my hands and sent me spinning 360s before coming to a stop. I opened the door and passed out from fear.

Turns out the Dodge side swiped the caddy and drove it off of the road versus hit me head-on. The lady driving the caddy picked me up from the road and kissed me over and over, crying. She told me she knew I was dead, too, but she is so greatful the Dodge hit her instead.

Why do I say divine intervention? I certainly didn’t turn the wheel. I was holding it tight with my eyes closed, certain I was going to die instantly. But I didn’t so much as get a scratch on my car. The skid marks from my slide were long and straight, but right there at the end they made a 90 degree turn. The Dodge’s skid marks did the same thing. They were 5 feet apart, and we were both going 60. Yes, I believe God saved me for whatever purpose I have been put here. It wasn’t my time. And I am forever thankful, despite not worshipping that entity.

What about you?
