    Have you ever faced a situation and known exactly what to do even if it wasn't logical or obvious or even anything you ever considered before?

    I would argue that this is Spiritual inspiration. We recieve revelation of things we don't know that are correct. I've had many such instances.

    It may also be the result of Wisdom - a combination of experience, intelligence, and judgment that causes one to have a flash of inspiration without laboriously working through each step towards the decision.

    yes, its called instincts, which every animal possesses. I guess if you want to believe those instincts are lead by god, that's up to you. BUt not everybody has good instinct. Some may freeze up in certain situations, does that mean that was god messing with them?

    I feel I have pretty good instincts, and one time when I was working at McDs, another manager came running into the office saying "shit, we are being robbed" then I heard "Open the fucking safe" followed by a series of gunfire. Without even thinking I ran to the back of the office, grabbed the girl that was in the isolation booth and threw her and mysefl behind a wall. Not a thought about it, just reacted.

    BTW, turns out an undercover cop was in the store and shot the bad guy dead.

    I knew exactly what to do when giving birth to twins. ;)

    Other than that, this life God has given me (and my children) has been one mysterious and curious ride that we are very grateful for.

    Twins huh?

    Beat on your Husband?


    I was in the labor hall for the birth of my son. Other stuff going on around me was very interesting aside from the birth of my son of course.
    One woman was cussing her poor husband to where a fly would not even light on him.

    I was cornered one time by a skunk. I knew exactly what to do. RUN!!! I didn't get sprayed and I don't think I've ever run that fast before in my entire life.
