Fast asleep

What do you do if you have trouble going to sleep?


Writing in a journal is something that helps me. I commune with God through my journal writing. It helps me get to the heart of whatever might keep me awake.

Recently, I was experiencing some restless nights. After writing a letter to God, I was able to fall fast asleep.

The letter was a few simple, but inspired lines communing with the great heart of infinite Love. Sometimes the letters might be longer. Or they might be an outpouring of gratitude.

Whatever form my journal writing takes, feeling at one with God, the Advocate who always works on our behalf, helps me to fall asleep peacefully.

I’m so grateful for the Christ, the Holy Comforter, which shows us all things.

It is the province of divine Love to tenderly nurture Her creation, for as Science and Health puts it, “In divine Science, we have not as much authority for considering God masculine, as we have for considering Him feminine, for Love imparts the clearest idea of Deity” (p. 517).
