Presence

I wrote the entry ‘Tired’ the night before last. It wasn’t a good night. I went to sleep reasonably early, and it had been quite some time since I had any tablets.

I woke suddenly in the middle of the night and was aware something was not right – there was just a bad presence in the room.  I didn’t see anything or anyone.  I was awake, and fully conscious, but I could not move my body at all, nor could I speak. I felt pinned to the bed. It was a terrible feeling. I tried to sit up, but once again, couldn’t move anything. I knew I had to pray out loud, but I couldn’t speak at all. I thought “I just need to be able to say ‘Jesus’ “.

After about 15-20 seconds I was able to say Jesus, and then I could sit up and prayed out loud. Whatever had kept me still on the bed was gone.  When I was praying, I was praying out of exhaustion and disbelief thinking, “What more do I need to deal with?”  Again, I questioned God as to why things continue to be difficult.  I thought I was done with my share of complicated situations.

Although I was a frightened when I couldn’t move or speak, the fear was gone and I eventually fell asleep again.
