    Author Marianne Williamson said “you must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be.” What you think about God will determine the kind of relationship you have with Him.

If you think of God as just an impersonal force in the universe, you’ll likely have nothing but a vague relationship with Him. But if you think about God the way Jesus does, you’ll get an accurate perspective that will lead you to fall in love with Him.
