In order to Love God, your thoughts must dwell on him.
Those who look at the Lord will be like Him.
Tell the Lord what you love about Him. Name as many things as you can and tell Him directly. As you look at Him, you will see more and more.
Are you aware of your thoughts? Are they lovely? Are they Gracious? Do they reflect time with Him?
The passive mind takes in anything and everything thrown at it. The obedient mind dwells on the Living and the Written Word.
