I pray and I’ve decided to pray ever since I had a spiritual awakening after turning thirty. I started to feel more comfortable in my own skin and what I saw when I looked in the mirror. It was difficult for me to see myself as a pretty little girl when I was a little girl but I had a spiritual awakening in my early 30s that made me aware of a power that was higher than myself. I knew God was really there. I doubted God’s existence for a while but I felt a connection to God as early as maybe ten years old. I felt like I was alone but I had a supportive family. I had very humble beginnings even though we didn’t have as much material wealth I felt like the moment I had started to write to express my hurt feelings through writing poetry in the 5th grade I had an outlet for my hurt feelings. I know God saw me and was there but the moment I had the experience of the peace of God washing over me healing me mind, soul and spirit. It was the first time I was sure beyond the shadow of a doubt that God is all loving, all knowing and all powerful. I knew I wasn’t alone and God had been walking with me all this time. I believe in God as the source. I focus on being the best person I can be and also being helpful to other people including my family members and friends.
