Spiritual insights and structural engineering

As a child I attended Sunday School, where I learned that in Biblical times some people heard God speak audibly to them. Although I was also told that God is present with us today, as I grew older I felt I would need to purify my thought a great deal before I could "talk with God." During my graduate work, however, I was most impressed by a professor who explained how he had prayed to God in order to gain the inspiration needed to solve a problem.

Shortly thereafter I found myself facing a crisis in finishing up my master's thesis.I was studying to be a structural engineer, and my thesis involved carrying out some experimental work on concrete columns. At the same time I had to develop a computer program that could predict the physical results. My research had gone well, I had worked hard, but right at the end I was stuck. With only a few days to go, I realized vividly that God is Mind, which includes all knowledge and intelligence. I did not hear God's word audibly, but I suddenly knew what to do.
