I am not alone. I live in a world
created and sustained by love. The Creator of the universe surrounds me
and fills my heart with love. The presence and power of God in my life
Godís love is unconditional; there is nothing I can do or must do to
earn it. Itís an eternal fact that sustains the world. It forms the
foundation for my self-esteem, and his love makes me worthy.
heart is full of Godís love, itís full of his presence and power. Itís
impossible to have unconditional love in my heart without God putting it
there. Unconditional love isnít in my chromosomes. Only God can
breathe it into my life.
God loves me and accepts me the way I am, but He loves me too much to
let me stay that way. That is my ultimate reason for hope. God is on
my side. He wants to fill my heart with his love, banish my
limitations, and wash away the plague of negative thoughts from my
mind. Godís love carries away my burden of guilt. His love not only
wipes the slate clean, it also throws the slate away. God has a plan
for my life that is better than anything I can imagine. There is no
limit to how good my life can become when I max out on the power of his
When I rotated through psychiatry in medical school, I discovered there
were no magic cures for what ails the human heart and mind.
I optimistically hoped there would be great breakthroughs in medicine
that would heal damaged emotions. People suffering emotional
distress would find treatment that would make them whole. For
thirty long years I waited for the miracle to happen.
Psychotherapy turned out to be a disappointment. As I read the
books and ingested the psychological flavor of the day, the years
thundered by, and the miracle never happened. Now I know why.
Emotional wounds don't heal properly without a liberal application of
When God created the world, He didn't walk away when He was done.
He didn't abandon his creation. Instead, He did an amazing thing.
He poured himself into the human heart. From the very beginning,
God has relentlessly poured his love into every open heart. God's
love surrounds and sustains you. No matter where you go,
God's love is there. Wherever you are are, you will sink or swim
in God's ocean of love.
The Bible says that God breathed into man the breath of life, and he
became a living soul. But it doesn't stop there. Real power
happens when God breathes his love into your life. It transforms
your rational mind and heals your damaged emotions.
Nothing is more powerful than God's love. When all else fails,
when the hand of flesh falls limp, God's love remains unfettered and
unstoppable. When his love comes in the front door, misery,
despair, and depression head for the emergency exit.
Every time you see love, you see the hand of God at work. God
doesn't send bolts of lightning to shock you into attention or thunder
his commandments into your mind. He quietly and unobtrusively puts
his love in your heart and makes your life worth living. He gently
reminds you that He is still there. You can see him if you
open you eyes and hear him if you open your ears to his message of love.
He is there for you twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week,
three-hundred and sixty five days a year. He wants to transform
your life with real power and breath his love into your life.
What distinguishes psychobabble from God's love is real power.
God's love has enough power to heal your heart and transform your mind.
Nothing can do what God's love can, and nothing can do it as well, and
the positive effects last for eternity. You have a new mind and
healed emotions, and the cure lasts forever.
When all therapies have failed and fallen by the wayside, God's love
endures. It never gives up on you and never surrenders to despair.
Nothing is too hard for God. He created the human heart and mind
and knows everything that can go wrong. He doesn't need to do
research and ask anyone for advice. You don't have to wait for
someone to discover the cure. God already has the cure for what
ails you. He is the powerhouse of unconditional love and has an endless
supply that will restore health to your heart and mind.
God's love not only points your life in the right direction, it also
gives you the power to make the trip.
