Building on her signature message of using the mind to master difficult emotions, Joyce Meyer focuses on the most destructive, insidious one of all: anger. It is responsible for broken relationships, sleepless nights, high blood pressure and ulcers. It destroys friendships, marriages and families, not to mention peace of mind. Anger is especially hard to handle for many Christians who have learned from childhood that "good Christians don't get angry." Meyer argues that properly handled, anger is an alert system that something is wrong and needs to be resolved.
In her latest book, she delves into the important process of forgiving, explaining its positive impact on the roots, the forms and the results of anger.
Why forgive? Joyce explains that forgiving is the only thing that can free one from the terrible turmoil that anger causes to spill over into every part of life.
Meyer understands that life will never be fair, but that is not a reason to let anger destroy our well-being and health. This is her guide to navigating that thorny territory and finding true peace.
Forgive me, please
I am astonished to the amount of painful hurt that I didn't realize I was holding onto, until I read this book. I have always been a very angry person, quick to judge, torn down every relationship I have "built" up... Including my marriage which is now going through a divorce. I have since realized that I never had a real relationship with God, nor could I receive any of his gifts. I have a much better understanding of myself, the people around me, and my reactions and emotions. I now include God in everything I do, and am working on forgiving those who have hurt me in my past. And beg for forgiveness from those I have hurt. I only wish I could have found this book sooner!!
I have just finished reading Joyce Meyers book on forgiveness. I to was raped by my step father at an early age. Though this rape a child was conceived. So when I read that Joyce had gone though the same thing I did but by her biology father I was glad that she did not conceive a child by him. You know it is bad enough to be raped but for a child to come out of it was very hard. I was very moved that Joyce's father asked for her forgiveness and gave his life to the Lord. I did not get that. He got really sick and helped by cooking meals that he liked but He never once said anything to me.He passed away two years ago. Sorry to have went on and on buy I got caught up in the moment. The book has helped me and I will continue to study and live by it until I get a breakthrough.
A Must Read
I have to say that this is the best book I have ever read!! If I could make every person in my family read this I would!!
