Rev. Robert L. Wise, PhD explores the world of divine interventions from an objective point of view. An Archbishop in the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches with a Ph.D., he is the author of 36 books. Rev. Wise relates his interviews with persons who experienced the touch of God.


Years ago, Linda Correa asked me if there was a God. I  told her about my experience encountering the light of His presence and that answered her questions. My answer stayed in her mind through the following decades. Last week my wife and I had a delightful evening at Larry and Linda Correa’s home. We had not seen them in years. My answer much earlier came up again when she told me what had happened to Larry.

Larry Correa had developed a physical condition that exploded into a full-scale disaster.  He developed a condition labeled varices that scarred his esophagus and caused bleeding to erupt.  He was rushed to the hospital, hemorrhaging and received four pints of blood. Their nurse daughter Jamie worked in the I.C. Unit and cried out, “Mother, he’s dying!”

Larry survived that moment but spent months in the hospital struggling. Next, he developed septicemia. An enormous boil developed on his foot and then swelling began spreading up his leg. The blood disease is often deadly.

As the complications mounted, the doctors told Linda there was no hope. Larry couldn’t survive all these complications. The infections and blood disease were too great. She was advised to prepare for his demise.

Stunned! Linda felt completely helpless, like a train going off a cliff. Void of all hope, she began driving home in a fog completely out of control. Somewhere on the Kilpatrick Turnpike driving across Oklahoma City, Linda began crying and screamed out, “Oh God! Give me a miracle! Please! Please! Oh Lord, help me!”

Abruptly a friend she hadn’t seen in a long time came to mind and she drove to her house. Linda had no idea the woman was a spiritual person, but she blurted out what had happened with Larry. In turn, the lady began telling Linda about God’s love. When she left, Linda was certain God had heard her prayer.

And the miracle? Larry sat at the table listening to Linda tell me this story. Larry Correa is alive today.

As Linda shared their experience, I was reminded how often when people are pushed beyond their capacities and are desperate that they experience a miracle. When we reach our limits, we stand ready to received our heavenly Father’s limitlessn

Linda told me, “I just stayed too busy to pay attention to what God was saying to me through the years. It took coming to the end of my rope to wake up to what had been there all the time.

Linda made an important discovery. Don’t wait for a disaster to wake you up. Your heavenly Father stands by your side right now. Remember miracles never cease!
