Morgan Olliges of popular Millennial YouTube duo Paul and Morgan ("The Paul and Morgan Show") is best-known for her bubbly, joyful personality displayed on the couple's real-life videos about godly "life, love and dating." But from October through December 2017, she went through a season where life was neither bubbly nor joyful. Experiencing severe depression, she was under regular treatment by a psychiatrist.
That December, Morgan tells host Dr. Barbara Lowe on "Dr. Barbara's Whole Life Podcast" on the Charisma Podcast Network, she spent an entire day on the couch, planning to end her life. It was then that she sensed the Holy Spirit's whisper: "'Just tell someone.'"
"And it sounds so simple. ... and I kind of fought with it," Morgan says. "I was like, 'I have told people. I've told my mom and Paul ... that I was thinking suicidal thoughts."
The Spirit whispered again, "But you haven't told him everything."
"And so I just decided that once Paul got home, I was going to tell him ... 'Unless something changes immediately, I'm going to end my life.'"
"Well then, we'd better change something immediately," was Paul's response to his wife's announcement. But neither of them knew what God had in store.
In just a few days, Morgan says, "God swept in and ripped out the roots of depression, the roots of anxiety, the roots of panic, attacks of suicide. It was just gone. ... After I revealed this stuff, I had some really solid ladies pray over me, and I went to my psychiatrist. I just immediately felt this huge weight lifted."
What Morgan says she now realizes was "intense spiritual deliverance" began with the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit. Hear more of her miraculous story when you listen to the podcast below!
