“How do you fill your life and your mind with God-talk? The Bible is full of life-affirming messages. It is, at its heart, a love story. It is a story of a loving God, who created you to love you and be loved by you. Like every great love story, there is a separation, which must be overcome by terrible sacrifice. Through God’s sacrifice of his Son, Jesus, you are able to confidently say, ‘I can live happily ever after.’
As good as these affirmations are, however, they must be supported by action. Positive self-talk and an acknowledgement of God-talk must be done even if you don’t feel like it. Affirmations are action based not emotion driven.”
