MIRACLES NEVER CEASE!
Robert Wise explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. Can 21st century people believe the hand of God still touches people today? Read and you’ll find new insights.
A HEALING DREAM
Divine interventions often come through dreams. The Bible is filled with these stories, running from Jacob’s ladder to heaven to Joseph’s instruction to take Mary and baby Jesus to Egypt. Our next-door neighbors had such an experience involving their son Garrett.
Garrett Conley was born with a serious heart defect that meant his life would always be limited. Many difficult, painful surgeries were required just to survive. Even though the family knew his life span could be short, his mother, father, and I began praying for his condition on a weekly basis. Garett was energized by these laying on of hands sessions and grew taller and stronger. By age eighteen, he was looking to a future that would be tough.
And then Garett’s heart suddenly failed and on November 2, 2020 he slipped away.
His mother was overwhelmed and devastated. A devout Christian, Carrie struggled to understand. She prayed constantly to grasp what had occurred. That’s when the dream came in the night.
Carrie and her husband Wiley were carrying baby Garett across a long bridge. As they walked, the baby started to grow but they kept holding him. The journey across the span was long and the baby kept growing. Even though a a teenager, Carrie and Wiley still held him as they walked. Slowly but surely, Garett became an eighteen-year-old young man while his mother and father were still holding him.
When Carrie looked ahead, she could see another bridge that had to be crossed. This time the bridge was torn, rugged, and broken. Crossing the next bridge would be far more difficult than the one they were on. Carrie wasn’t sure how they would get across.
Suddenly Jesus appeared at the end of the bridge they had been crossing and reached out to take Garret in his arms. With a sweeping gesture, Jesus and Garett were gone. Carrie abruptly realized that because of his love for Garett, the Master had saved him from crossing a broken bridge. The insight proved to be a powerful healing for Carrie’s grief.
Carrie’s dream demonstrates how healing can come even when we are asleep. Sometimes the interventions of God come when our eyes are closed.
