The Day I Was Robbed

My Apple iBook similar to the one in this picture was stolen.

Here's my story for Tell a Story Day (April 27, 2014).

I can still remember the tragic evening as if it were yesterday. It was Friday, June 1, 2001.

As I drove into the driveway of my apartment, I knew something was wrong. A foreboding feeling overwhelmed me. So I jumped out of the car and ran to the door, unlocked it and then discovered that I had been robbed.

My notebook computer was gone and the back door was left open by some unknown crook. Other items were also taken: my high school graduation ring, a VCR, and spare change.

How was it possible for me to know something was wrong before entering my apartment? No one informed me of the theft and I wasn't an eye witness.

Is it possible that God was responsible for my feeling that something was wrong? Is there a spiritual dimension to life?

Some of my friends reject the idea of the supernatural. They believe that everything must be composed of matter and that all spirituality is a scam. This belief system is known as naturalism. Wikipedia defines naturalism as "the idea or belief that only natural (as opposed to supernatural or spiritual) laws and forces operate in the world; (occas.) the idea or belief that nothing exists beyond the natural world."

I believe an awareness of knowledge that was unobtainable by physical means could be evidence for spiritual reality.

Christianity involves the belief that God, a supernatural being, created life (including humans) with the desire that we have a relationship with Him based on faith.

I hope you will explore this idea of spiritual reality. The Bible says, "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us." The supernatural becomes human. This is a mystery with a promising conclusion. God offers forgiveness for all the times we sinned ... and that includes me and the person that robbed my apartment.
