One day this happened a few years ago on a day that I felt like giving up I had a supernatural peace wash over me.

I would describe this experience as a pivotal moment in my life. I knew the peace of God surpassed my understanding. God was saying to me at that moment “here I am you are not alone daughter”. I discovered I wasn’t alone. I felt alone. I felt really sad. I felt like I was becoming aware for the first time that beyond a shadow of a doubt that God loved and cared about me. I believe in God. I know he cares enough about me as his child. I’m 39 now. Back in my early 30s I had this divine encounter with a loving accepting God that forgave me and was there for me on a rough day. I sleep better also since I had the experience. Most nights I sleep well. I am less afraid or anxious about the future. The get better sleep at night since my early 30s the God encounter I had caused me to sleep better. I also lost over 45 pounds on my own. I try to sleep at night by 10 pm or so. I had insomnia a lot in my teenage years and in my 20s too. Now in my 30s from the year 2012 to now this has been my best decade for getting sleep and enough rest at night.
