One with God was born out of Darrin Pelley’s experiences with God through a series of NDEs
(near death experiences) resulting from his battle with type one diabetes. Throughout his extraordinary journey, Darrin has encountered what most believers anxiously and patiently wait for in heaven someday, the unbridled bliss of the loving presence of the eternal God.
Having been raised in the Catholic faith by a pious mother, Darrin never really “got it,” until once in his early thirties, God met him in the midst of a diabetic coma and gave him a taste of the rewards of the afterlife. He emerged from this experience able to walk by sight where most must walk by faith. Since that wonderful day, Darrin has experienced God’s powerfully warm
presence in subsequent such experiences in his battle with blood sugar and insulin, but perhaps more importantly for the reader, he has learned to dwell in the presence of God through prayer. Darrin has capitalized on the “extreme privilege” of his condition and the experiences afforded him to “know what to look for” in experiencing God’s presence, becoming an unlikely but eager mystic of the Christian faith.
Darrin desires above all else to dwell in the presence of Christ and seeks to do just that in the midst of his otherwise ordinary life. But if there is anything that he deeply longs for almost as much, it is that he could tell others what he knows and help the rest of know God, God’s presence, His nature, and most of all, His lavish and incredible love for us in the most real and tangible ways. Darrin believes with his whole heart that God can be experienced that way by
anyone who sincerely wants Him.
In this book, readers will be taken on a journey through Darrin’s own life and his own transformation due to the strength of his faith. You may be where Darrin was before God so graciously revealed Himself to Darrin. You’ll find comfort in the stories and hope in Darrin’s faith. You’ll hear about the effect of these experiences on Darrin’s own prayer life and have a front row seat to the answers to his prayers, many of which are nothing short of miraculous.
Finally, you’ll be instructed by Darrin in concrete, practical ways on prayer, as Darrin guides you through his very own prayer process, one which he adopted from another great mystic, Matthew Kelly. Through this prayer process, Darrin has not only received countless answers to his most fervent prayers, but has been able to enter the presence of God again and again and again to remember the loving embrace of his kind and powerful Creator. Let this book be a testament of the love of God and His desire to know you, help you, and love you.
