    I have been waking up in the middle of the night lately feeling like there is a "presence" in my room. I've quoted scripture to give me comfort and usually after some time I've been able to go back to sleep.

    I'm not quite sure how many times this has happened over the past few months (maybe 3?) but I've also had a dream last week that is not so common.

    All I remember in the dream was darkness like night but blacker and an old looking train surrounded by fog coming straight for me. I don't remember feeling afraid but I do remember feeling like this was it and there was nothing I could do then there was just more blackness and I knew that it was finished. Now, I might have been able to brush it off but my mother texted me when I woke up asking me if I was ok. I told her I was ok and asked why she asked and she told me she had a weird dream but she wouldn't/hasn't told me what it was. That same day my friend called me and told me she had been thinking about me and maybe a week before my dream my aunt had called and told me she had thought of me a few weeks before.

    Last night I felt the presence again and felt the need to share my experience here.

    Dearest @janiebaby ...

    God has you covered. Just lie down, pull up the covers, snuggle in His loving arms and just sleep. :sleep2:

    I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
    Psalm 4:8

    Sweet Sleep, Janie Baby... Sweet Sleep. In Jesus' Name, Amen and Amen. Sweet, Sweet Sleep. Your safety the Lord shall surely keep...Sweet Sleep.

    You are at a crossroads. You have choices to make in your walk with the Father. Seek His will and corrction.

    Thank you I did start to think, while I was reading and praying, that God is getting me closer to him and that I have to feel more comfortable with spending time in conversation with God instead of being so "formal" about it.

    Thank you for this! Psalm 91 was one of the scriptures I came across last night that gave me comfort.

    Hi OP! I went through something similar while I was at a very stressful job a few years ago. I felt as if something was haunting and following me the whole time I was there and I had consistent nightmares and anxiety and was constantly feeling stressed and discomforted. My mom advised me to sleep with my Bible open to psalm 23 every night. It definitely helped a bit but that feeling, the nightmares and haunted feeling didn't go away till I left that job. I'm so much happier now and definitely feel that I'm in the job that the Lord wants me in for this season in my life. As another poster said, walk with the Lord during this time, continue to develop your relationship, and carefully consider any promptings He places on your heart.

    @janiebaby, I'm adding Psalm 27 to the list. Also, pray every night (if you're not already doing so) and cover your home with the blood of Jesus. Read Exodus 12:1-30, and when you pray, visualize yourself applying the Blood of Christ to your doors and windows, like the Israelites did. May God keep you safe, in Jesus's name.

    Also leave music on in your house, especially while you're asleep about the blood of Jesus. I particularly like CeCe Winans By The blood. I like the WHOLE cd Throne Room

    I second this. I experienced something similar a few years ago and my sis recommended that I read Psalm 91. After reading it every night, I never experienced the presence again.

    In addition bless every door and window with oil.
    When I did that, the presence never came back to the home.

    @Laela thank you you too! I really don't know what or how much to write so I've settled on being open. I've been feeling anxious lately like I'm in a rush to get my affairs in order. I feel like I'm being pushed into not being complacent like I have been and my prayers will be answered but only if I keep moving. We read bible stories and don't realize that one person's story took place over years and years. There's a lesson in everything and we're writing our own story as we go.
