One of the many moments when I just knew….

I was twenty years old when a friend invited me to Unity Church in Greenville, South Carolina. For the first time in my life, I heard someone say, “You are God’s beloved child with whom God is well pleased.” I cried all day and all night after hearing that. I decided that day to stop dying, at least in the way I had been mentally treating myself. Someone actually found me lovable:

God loved me. I knew this, but no one had ever said it to me. I had lived my whole life trying to prove that God did not make a mistake when I was created, and I would live long enough to understand that there is a big difference between making a mistake and being one. When all the people who surround you have an outdated, constricted version of God, you start to deny your natural intuition after a while.

I am so grateful to Don Bliss for thinking enough of me to introduce me to a place that practiced a true connection to God. This was the start of true bliss for me and was a key factor in my being found. Knowing that I was God’s beloved with whom God was well pleased stopped the cycle I was living every day of wanting to die rather than live. I know had I not found this way of living, I would not have found a way to live.

Twenty years of waiting to be validated and recognized is a very long time.

What Are Your Spiritual Gifts?

A man was pulled over by a police officer for a broken headlight. The cop looks in the car and sees a collection of knives on the backseat. “Sir,” he says. “Why do you have all those knives?” “They’re for my juggling act,” the man replies. “Prove it,” says the cop. The man gets out…
