yes, Joyce is funny but also really deep because she has had real life things happen to her so she knows what it is like being a woman in this mean world and all the evil that can happen to a woman because she has been there and done that and knows the saving grace and love and power of our dear Lord and Savior.
I love Joyce Meyers. God has talked to me through her countless times. I have grown closer to God so much through her. When I 2st started to listen I did JUST that, listen. After about a 8 months of listening I decided it WAS TIME to listen & do some work on myself. Listening to Joyce Meyer is like talking to a girl friend, except you can't talk with her, only listen. She is fun to listen to sometimes she cracks me up!!!

The amount of truth that you have just spoken is awesome. This is so true that as Christians we are really watched especially by the unsaved world because they seem to be wondering what we and Jesus are all about and we are representitives of Jesus and we had better be acting like Him and responding as He would respond in all situations and with all people. Yes, there are certain personality types that I have to double up on being extra watchful at how I respond to them. We are in this world but not of it, and He that is in me is greater then he that is in this world.
I have been infected by people for sure, but I believe I also have affected people here on this team andat times my friends and husband, & a few family members as well sometimes.
I have been lured into conversations that i had no reason to be involved in. I even spent some time talking to someone on line that I should not have. We find ourselves in situations that excite us, but in the end it is our spirituality which suffers. We feel ashamed by our behavior at times and we lose our peace as a result. When this happens get out of it as soon as possible. Forgive yourself and move on. It is the same way with living a healthy lifestyle. We are not always perfect with eating well, and exercising. We get lazy, we eat what & when we shouldn't, but our delay in progress is what stops our progress. Got that, it is our delay in progress which stops our progress. So, whenever you are moving backwards, stall, or freeze, just shake yourself off and start to move forward again!
Now, I have affected others as well. Sometimes we do this and aren't even aware of it. People are watching you everywhere you go. They listen to how you talk, and watch how you behave. If people know you are a Christian they really watch you. When it is hard to do so, remember, sometimes you can change a person's life just by one single sentence, or action.
