LIVE— to discover your real worth

WHEN I GOT TO KNOW Patricia several years ago, one of the things that struck me was her delight in what she was learning every day about life with God at the center. She wasn't full of religious talk, but she brimmed with joy.

When you read her story [see sidebar], you'll see she didn't get to that place easily. Suicidal thoughts tormented her for years. But healing power sprang her from that mental prison. Patricia wouldn't claim to have solved all life's problems, and yet she has discovered her worth in God's eyes and seen that she has something to give to the world. Now she can look people in the eye, laugh, love, and live unashamed in a way she didn't think possible in earlier years.

Anyone can experience the power of spiritual truth to end self destructive thoughts. No matter how hopeless or ruined you feel, God knows you as His/Her worthy and loved idea, and as such you can't be controlled by these hateful thoughts. Surrendering to the truth of your spiritual identity will defeat awful monsters that feel as if they're you. Anyone who wants to change for the better can certainly live without shame, fear, and the desire to die.
