I have decided to live as if I am a
loving person. I will practice being loving each day of my life.
To become a loving person, I must do the things that loving people do.
I have to do it before I can feel it. When I act as if I am a loving
person, itís not long before loves comes into my life.
When I donít feel loving, I still act as if I am a loving person. When
I feel angry and resentful, I still act as if I am a loving person.
When someone is rude and unpleasant, I still act as if I am a loving
person. When I make mistakes and fail, I still act as if I am a loving
person. No matter what happens, I think and act love into my life.
Living as if I am a loving person is the only way I will ever become
one. I must practice being loving until it actually happens.
Practice doesnít make me perfect, but it does make me more loving. I
will live as if I am a loving person. I will practice being loving each
day of my life.

How does God's love do its miraculous
1. First, it changes the way you think.
2. Second, it changes the way you feel.
3. Third, it changes the way you live.
When you change the way you think, feel, and live, you actually become a
new person. You look at yourself and your world in a completely
new way. This isn't just a makeover or a tidying up of your life.
It's a totally new you that starts in your head and works its way down
into your heart. Whoever you were in the past, you are not that
person any longer. You are a new person with a new life.
First, you experience God's love intellectually, and that changes the
way you think. You need to change the way you think about many
things. When you look at your limitations, you need to change the
way you think. When you look at your failures, you need to change
the way you think. When you look at your past, you need to
change the way you think. When you look at the present, you need
to change the way you think. When you look at the future, you need
to change the way you think. When you look at who you are
and what you can do with your life, you need to change the way you
think. When you look at your depressing and distorted thoughts,
you need to change the way you think.
When God's love rolls through your mind, powerful positive new thoughts
start to change your life. Your self-image immediately is
transformed by the fact that you are made in the image of God. You
don't need to prop up a weak self-image or create and project an image
that will be loved by all. Instead, you need to live an
image-oriented lifestyle based on the fact that you bear the likeness of
God. When God created the world, He pronounced his creation good, and
that includes you. There were no exceptions. God doesn't
make mistakes, and you are not a mistake. God thought enough of
you to create you in his image, and your self-image can't get any better
Your new thoughts about who you are also increase your self-esteem.
God loves and accepts you the way you are. He isn't holding back
his love until you are perfect. He loves you now, and his love for
you is eternal. If God loves you as you are, then it's high time
for you to start feeling good about yourself.
If God accepts you
as you are, it's time for you to accept yourself, If it's good
enough for God, it should be good enough for you.
Once you start thinking differently, the emotional healing begins, and
God's love changes the way you feel. Your emotions are the direct
result of the thoughts that you put into your mind. When you think
healthy new thoughts, you experience positive new emotions that are
consistent with God's love.
God designed your mind so that it would function best when it's under
the influence of his love. When your mind is full of thoughts that
are consistent with his love, your mind is exactly the way God meant for
it to be.
God designed your heart so it would experience healthy emotions when
it's dominated by his love. When your heart is full of emotions
that are consistent with his love, your emotions are exactly the
way God meant for them to be.
Once you start thinking new thoughts and enjoying new positive emotions,
another miracle happens. You start taking new actions. You
even start doing things you could never do before.
New actions mean a new life, and that's exactly what happens.
