God sees my life from start to finish, while I have trouble seeing the next step. God sees things that can be, while I see things through the lens of my past. I would be downright discouraged were it not for the fact that no matter what happens, God can use it for something good.
You need to look at yourself thought God's eyes of love to understand what it means to be one of his children. No matter what your age, you need to learn the facts of love. The most important fact is that God is love. The more you know about God’s love, the better you understand what God is like. Here is a list of some of the things the Bible says about love.
God is love and works by love. The power and presence of God in my life is love. Every time I see love, I see God's hand at work. Every time I feel love, I experience God's presence and power. God loves and accepts me the way I am, but He loves me too much to let me stay that way. God loves me from the top of my head to the tip of my toes, and it doesn't get any better than that.
Love is so important that Jesus said you could recognize his disciples by their love. It's the hallmark that identifies them as children of God. It's their way of life. I can think of no higher calling than being a swimming instructor in God's ocean of love.
God is good, and He is good all the time, and when we get in partnership with him, awesome things happen. God takes all our choices, mistakes and failures and turns them into something good. Learn how you can be an optimist in a frequently negative world.
You already have enough faith to set sail on the ocean of your dreams. You don't need to see far into the distance. You only need to see far enough to take the next step. It doesn't matter what your dream is, today is the best day to work on your dreams. Conditions will never be more perfect than they are today. If you are still breathing, and if you have a dream, then now is the time to set sail.
Faith is a product of trust, and fear is a product of distrust. When you trust God to take you through the storms of life, faith naturally wells up in your heart. You don't need to muster your faith. It's not something you do. Faith happens to you, because God puts it in your heart and mind when you trust him. Learn the secret of positive faith!
Positive self-talk is not the invention of man. It's the invention of God, and it was given as a gift to mankind so that we could speak our new lives into existence. Joel 3:10 says, Let the weak say, "I am strong." It's very clear that self-talk is not about where you are at the present moment. It's about where you are going with God's help. Amazing things happen when people get in agreement with God about who they are and what they can do with their life.
