Longtime actress Essence Atkins recently spoke publicly about an encounter she had with God that solidified her faith.

The account of her experience can be seen in the all-new Urban Movie Channel original docuseries “Behind Her Faith” which highlights four women at the top of their careers and takes a deep look at their personal journeys of faith as their driving force.

“I remember very particularly and specifically having an encounter, a very real encounter with God, and it was undeniable. And after that my life never looked the same,” Atkins said on the new Paula Bryant‐Ellis show.

The former “Cosby Show” actress, who continues to have a thriving career both in film and television, said God met with her while she was home alone in her apartment and spoke to her.

“God was speaking to me. I heard Jesus talking to me and it wasn’t out loud, but it was a voice that was not my own and the words were not my own,” she continued.

Atkins admitted that she initially thought she might be going crazy because she didn’t understand it, but she went along with it.

“I went into the kitchen and I made dinner and the voice was like, ‘Set a place for me.’ So I set the table for two. I cooked and I didn’t serve food on the second plate but I prepared a second space. I remember opening the door and sitting down at the table and speaking out loud to the voice that was asking me questions and having a conversation,” she explained.
