How God Saved Singer Olivia Lane from Atheism: ‘I Saw Jesus’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Christian radio host and singer-songwriter Olivia Lane opened up about how God saved her from atheism.

In an interview with Christian Headlines, Lane said, “I’ve been in Nashville for about 10 years, and mostly doing country music. And in 2017, I started losing my voice because I was on the road, I wasn’t taking care of myself, I wasn’t a believer. I just had all these big questions start coming up, like: ‘What’s my purpose in life?’ And so I decided to go to therapy — regular therapy to heal my mind and then vocal therapy to heal my voice.”

Unbeknownst to her, both therapists were Christians.

“So they started really loving on me during my healing journey,” Lane said. “About a year into therapy, my therapist basically said to me, ‘If you want more healing, you need to figure out a spiritual life.’ And of course, as an atheist, I did not want to do that. But I eventually swallowed my pride. Part of me was like, ‘I’m gonna set out to maybe disprove this for myself.’ But I also was open. I was like, ‘Okay, if it’s real, let’s figure it out.’”

She committed to praying every day.

“I basically just woke up every morning, and I was like, ‘God if you’re real, you’ll reveal yourself to me. You’re gonna do something big. It’s going to be amazing…’ As those four months went on, my heart began to soften, and I began to say…’If this truly is real, God, I’m so desperate for you to just come in and blow up my life because I need it,'” she recalled on LifeTodayTV.

Then one day, Lane experienced God’s presence.

“I was sitting in my living room, reading this book called ‘Walking with God’ by John Eldredge,” she explained. “And then all of a sudden, I felt like all my feelings were being felt at once, and I sensed a presence in the room. And I looked up, and I saw Jesus with His arms outstretched as a shadow silhouette against my window. And in that moment, I knew.”

“I knew nothing,” Lane expressed. “But Jesus appeared. So I was texting my therapist: ‘I think I’m having a panic attack.’ And she said, ‘No, no, you were just in the presence of the Holy Spirit for the first time.’”

Ever since that moment, Lane has been “singing about the goodness of God,” per her Instagram bio.

She reflected on her experience in her song “Woman At The Well.”

“During his ministry, Jesus lifted women up when culture did the opposite. I wrote this song about the moment Jesus lifted me out of my most broken place and loved me exactly where I was,” she wrote on Instagram.
