One treat for me on tv is to watch Joyce Meyers before leaving for work in the morning.. This morning was one that I was home late enough to see her.
I am a born and bred devout Catholic, BUT I was introduced to her tapes while in another program years ago.. I receive her books for gifts and I love her and her devotion to my Lord. Some people in my parish tell me not to get too deep in her lectures or Bible study. I know how things are today, how life presents challenges, the devil in person. I know that my faith is helping me continue to grow in spite of being this erring human that I am.
I have been through a lot of life's challenges that she has and can relate to how she works to change herself as best she can, despite being a world renowned evangelist. I have not wavered in my faith because I listen to her and read her ways of relating to the Scripture to get through my daily life.
I know my faith has strengthened because I am able to glean what she has and what she has been given by God, and add to that, my spiritual upbringing and let it work through me to be able to work on my faults.
One of these faults was pointed out to me today at work,, I need to be open to humility if I am to grow inside as HE intended for me .. growth is ongoing,,
Anybody with perfection as a goal is a fool.. (my quote)
