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)

    Perfect? I gave up on even being good when I read in some book or other that there's none good save one, and I realized that I ain't He. :)

    I guess God's got some followers around in various places. Sometimes it seems hard to spend more time and energy helping each other along the way. emoticon

    By definition, the 'perfect' human being is imperfect. Only God is perfect.

    I have always enjoyed her, too, when I just happen to catch her show. Anyway, my own faith is quite different, as well, but I don't hear her saying anything that isn't true. emoticon

    If our goal is perfection, we are destined for disappointment...
    I am Catholic, and I also find Joyce Meyer's lectures to be most helpful. She has the talent of making her lessons easy to understand--- and easy to apply to my life. I have found her books offer wisdom for daily living too.
    When someone preaches about Godly virtue, and preaches about overcoming sinfulness, the message can be beneficial -- no matter the speaker's religious denomination. And the humor Joyce Meyer brings to her ministry often makes me smile. . .
    Thanks for this blog... and God bless you!
