Forgiveness is easier said than done and is one of the most difficult personal issues to deal with. When people fail to forgive, it damages - often ruins - relationships, causes stress and other health problems and can turn life and work into a prison of the mind. Without forgiveness, anger and bitterness become a cauldron of poison. The anger doesn't go away - it just gets worse.In DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR ... FORGIVE, Joyce Meyer helps the reader transform the simple phrase 'I forgive you' into a statement of true meaning that can take relationships to a deeper level. By addressing where the need to forgive comes from, Joyce teaches readers to understand the importance of forgiveness, rather than letting anger's destructive forces take over their lives.

Each of us has a deep need to forgive and to be forgiven. Puneet explains why so many of us find it difficult to forgive and why holding on to grievances is really a decision to suffer. The book describes what causes us to be unforgiving and how our minds work to justify this. It goes on to point out the toxic side effects of being unforgiving and the havoc it can play on our bodies and in our lives. But above all, it leads us to the vast benefits of forgiving. Forgiveness doesn't mean agreeing with, condoning, or even liking what has happened. Forgiveness means letting go and knowing that--regardless of how challenging, frightening, or difficult an experience may seem--everything is just as it needs to be in order for you to grow and learn. When you focus on how things "should" be, you deny the presence and power of love. Accept the events of the past, while being willing to change your perspective on them.
If you do a retreat, it is probably best to be on your own and so reduce possible distractions. ... (Approval Addiction), unforgiveness (Do Yourself a Favour . . . Forgive), etc. Alternatively you could study some spoken-word teaching.

At your salvation, your spirit was renewed, but your soul and body was not changed. Spiritual Disciplines are given to us by God. They provide a way of sowing to the Spirit and they help you put off the “old man” and put on the “new man” (see Ephesians 4:22-24). By doing this, you “renew” your soul so it will agree with your renewed spirit. As the saying “means to an end” goes, the Spiritual Disciplines are the “means,” while the “end” is intimacy with God. By exercising the Spiritual Disciplines, we are helped to mature spiritually and are put in a place where God can work within us to transform us. If we truly want to walk with God, we will exercise the Spiritual Disciplines. Spiritual Disciplines are for everyone to use and should be a natural part of a Christian’s life, as natural as breathing. In this book, the eleven main Spiritual Disciplines – Meditation, Prayer, Fasting, Study, Simplicity, Submission, Confession, Solitude, Service, Guidance, and Worship – are described as well as how to apply them in today’s world. The author’s first two books are A Young Person’s Guide to Christianity and A Christian Understanding of Deception – Gaining an Appreciation of How satan Uses Deception.

Author: Joyce Meyer
This work explains the importance of forgiveness in mastering the difficult emotion of anger and how to use God's help in preventing anger from destroying one's health and happiness. Building on her signature message of using the mind to master difficult emotions, the author 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." She argues that properly handled, anger is an alert system that something is wrong and needs to be resolved. In this 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? She 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. She 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.

The idea to write fictional letters to marital couples on how to use God's lifetime warranty on their marriages came into being in the process of a sermon preparation as a guest pastor for a local church in November 2011. I prayed about which message to deliver for many days. About two days before Sunday, I had a dream that a young lady participated during my sermon. After the sermon, her family greeted me well and said I made her speak in public for the first time and I gave her the encouragement that she needs for the rest of her life. Then I woke up. On the actual Sunday service, during the sermon, I asked the congregation how many of them had a dog or a cat. A young lady - a 17 year old said she had a cat. I asked if she ever took her cat for a walk, she said, "no." I asked, "why not?" She replied, "Nobody does!" Then I said people take their dogs for walks, but this does not mean that dogs are more important or better than cats. Cats have their own usefulness. God who created us knows that we are not the same and that we cannot function in the same way. One should not be boasting that s/he is better than the other. After the service, the grandfather of the cat owner who spoke during my sermon and her aunt came to me and thanked me for the opportunity given to the young lady to talk for the first time in public, which would enable her to express herself publicly. When I was praying at home after the sermon, I had the feeling that God wanted me to tell people to try out what seems to be unusual for them. It has been my concern for many years that many couples don't take their wedding vows seriously. It is affecting children a great deal; many children have two or three stepparents. Those children without stepparents seem to be the odd ones among their peers. In Canada, about 50% of first marriages may likely end up in divorce. One may presume that the rate of divorce in second marriages would be lower, but instead it is higher at 72% while, third marriages have the highest divorce rate of 85% (Comparative Annual Divorce Rate in Canada). Similarly, in America, the first marriage divorce rate ranges from 41 - 50%; second marriage divorce rate is between 60-67% and third marriage is between 73-74%. (Information on Divorce Rate and Statistics). This book is fictional. The stories are not real stories. They are about my past experiences with heterosexual couples in my counseling or pastoral care. I do not have a particular person or couple in mind. No names in the book are real names. If anybody's name or any couples have the same names as used in the book, I would like them to know that I am not telling their particular story or using them as an example. The Holy Spirit inspired the writers of the bible stories/instructions/messages and the same Holy Spirit is still talking to us today. I believe, I was inspired to write the book. I will encourage anyone or couple whose story or stories are similar to what's in the book not to be too critical but to take it (the book) as a means through which God is speaking to them to change. No marriage is too bad that God cannot change for better. Don't fold your arms and accept your troubled marriage as a done deal. I will advise the readers to call upon the author of marriage, God through Jesus Christ, to fix their marriages. He is able. Since the idea of letter writing is becoming obsolete, one may be wondering why letters to marital couples, and not email, text, or any other modern means of communication. Letter writing is an old form of communication, which is to inform, correct, and educate. In the New Testament, there are many letters written by Paul the apostle and others to individuals and churches to deal with issues, circumstances, and problems faced by the recipients. We never read about their responses or their initial letters to the Apostles. Similarly, only letters written to the couples are featured in this book. Most of the Letters in this book are long term correspondence with the imaginary couples. The objectives of the letters are to: 1). Encourage couples not to give up on their dream of having a successful marriage and to continue fighting until the victory is won. 2). Enable the counsellors/pastors to keep their counselees' hope alive as long as they are still interested in counselling. 3). Help families and friends to keep on supporting the couples in crises. Note that some of the letters end with prayer, while some didn't. The idea is we don't have to impose prayer on people. Praying with people is as important as praying for people in absentia. We need permission to pray with people, but we don't need permission to pray for people while they are not there. In both my pastoral and counselling ministries, the most prevalent issues are marriage and family matters. This book thus serves as a handbook to help couples in crises or prevent couples from getting into a marital mess. It can be used in marriage enrichment groups or as a counsellor/Pastor's handbook. The group Leaders, Counsellors or Pastors should not use the book as a weapon of judgment against anyone, but as a means of correction and education. The book is calling people who just want a family and not a marriage. Many couples lose love in their marriages. Love is the greatest gift God gives to people but many people do not accept it. They choose anger instead of peace or love from God. The book is calling the readers who are making wrong decisions for wrong reasons. We should not let bitterness, anger, frustration, alcohol, drugs, etc., ruin our marital relationships. The principles of marital solutions in the book focus on God. May God bless you as you read the it. Shalom!

Understanding the dimensions and mechanics of the bible is far crucial in understanding of the bible itself. Fresh and new revelations will be like links on the chain when you read the bible from cover to cover with this very nature in mind. Bible is no different to the concept of a jigsaw puzzle. All the individual 66 books and epistles that sum up the bible are incomplete in its individuality. You can find that missing jigsaw piece nowhere but within the vicinity of the bible itself. For instance, Genesis without the other 65 books and epistles is incomplete and so forth. Oracles in the bible are scattered and blended with other testimonial experience so that an ordinary mind will look but shall not see and listen but cannot hear. The Pharisees, High Priests and the Jewish authorities opposed and rejected Jesus for their lack of awareness about the dynamics of the bible. You are very blessed for discovering this GOLDEN SECRET about the divinity of the bible. Moreover, the bible is an encyclopedia of its own having answers to its own questions and all the questions mankind can ever think of. In other words, bible itself is the absolute and divine meaning of COMPLETION lacking nothing. In it is fullness of life, health, wealth, prosperity, authority and power without lack of any kind for it is a piece of God's mind and heart constrained to mankind's calling and thinking cap. In God is fullness of life so shall be it for His inspired book of all times The Holy Bible.

Affecting 80% of the population, leaky gut syndrome is the root cause of a litany of ailments, including chronic inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, and even arthritis. In order to keep us in good health, our gut relies on maintaining a symbiotic relationship with trillions of microorganisms that live in our digestive tract. In Eat Dirt, Dr Axe explains that what we regard as modern improvements to our food supply – including refrigeration, sanitation, and modified grains – have damaged our intestinal health. In fact, the same organisms in soil that allow plants and animals to flourish are the ones we need for gut health. When our digestive system is out of whack, serious health problems can manifest and our intestinal walls can develop microscopic holes, allowing undigested food particles, bacteria, and toxins to seep into the bloodstream. This condition is known as leaky gut syndrome and manifests differently in every individual. In Eat Dirt, Dr Axe identifies the five main types of leaky gut syndrome and offers customizable 30-day plans for diagnosing and treating each 'gut type' with diet, lifestyle, and supplementation. He explains that it's essential to get a little 'dirty' in our daily lives in order to support our gut bacteria and prevent leaky gut syndrome, and offers simple ways to get these needed microbes, from incorporating local honey and bee pollen into your diet to forgoing hand sanitizers and even ingesting a little probiotic-rich soil. The premise is simple: identify your gut type, learn which foods to eat and to avoid, incorporate your daily dose of 'dirt', and make simple lifestyle changes.

This book is designed to teach you about the real existence of the true and only living God. However, due to much confusion in the world, people tend to confuse religion with different gods. I discovered the true existence and the powerful force of the true living God, Jesus Christ, in my life. I believed in a different god before. I also prayed to different virgins and saints as well, but I did not obtain any results. One day, I found myself at a dead end with the only living God, Jesus Christ, showing me His mighty resurrection power when I lost my life in a hospital bed. I decided to author this book, Death Saved by Jesus Christ, to explain how powerful and merciful Jesus Christ has been with me. This book is based on a true story, and I am convinced that many people will completely understand who Jesus Christ, the true living God, is. The main purpose for this book is for people to restore the broken relationship between humanity and God. With the deepest gratitude to the Lord, I want to explain to you how Jesus Christ saved my life, not only from spiritual death but physical as well. As a spiritual-healer author, the main idea is to help you to engage with this book, I want it to touch your heart and help you to heal your spiritual emotions that you endured so that you can obtain the spiritual freedom your inner being needs.

When Joyce Meyer posted 'God's not mad at you' on Facebook a few months ago, she didn't realise that those five words would trigger thousands of posts of gratitude and relief. She had obviously hit a nerve. 'Where does this concept of God come from?' she asks in the introduction. 'Perhaps from an angry parent who was difficult to please. Or the pain of rejection from parents or friends who didn't know how to give unconditional love. Perhaps it came from the church! From religious teaching that offered us rules and regulations to follow and implied that we'd be unacceptable to God if we didn't follow them.' It's a paradox that isn't often discussed by Christian teachers: God loved the world so much that He gave His son to rescue mankind. Yet we tend to think of Him as a stern judge who is ready to punish us at the slightest mis-step. In God Is Not Mad At You, Joyce examines the sources of this mixed message and untangles the confusion that most Christians experience. Chapter titles include: Perfectionism and Approval The Pain of Rejection Guilt and Shame Developing Your Potential Run To God, Not From Him Getting Comfortable with God Joyce's latest book addresses a need that isn't often discussed within the Christian community: the need to see God as the loving parent that He is, not a petty tyrant who is ready to pounce at the first opportunity. It will help to clarify for readers one of the greatest misconceptions within the church and free them to experience His love on an entirely new level.

In this concise yet information-packed book—which you can download the audio from the included link and listen to or read at your leisure—bestselling author Louise L. Hay shows you that you "can do it"—that is, change and improve virtually every aspect of your life—by understanding and using affirmations correctly. Louise explains that every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. Even your self-talk, your internal dialogue, is a stream of affirmations. You’re affirming and creating your life experiences with every word and thought. Your beliefs are merely habitual thinking patterns that you learned as a child, and many of them work very well for you. But other beliefs may be limiting your ability to create the very things you say you want. You need to pay attention to your thoughts so that you can begin to eliminate the ones creating experiences that you don’t want. As Louise discusses topics such as health, forgiveness, prosperity, creativity, relationships, job success, and self-esteem, you’ll see that affirmations are solutions that will replace whatever problem you might have in a particular area. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to say "I can do it" with confidence, knowing that you’re on your way to the wonderful, joy-filled life you deserve.
By forgiving, you're choosing to acknowledge that yes, something bad happened, yet you are taking back the reins and ... in you choose to forgive, even if it's only for your own benefit, you'll find that you're doing yourself a favor.

Does God exist? Is there a purpose to my life? Is goodness a divine reality or simply a relative value that each culture defines for itself? Is there life beyond this earthly existence? Are Homo sapiens more than quarks and atoms; more than material properties? Is love a reality or a feeling? Offerings is a collection of brief but thought-provoking writings that vindicate religious faith. It will be an especially helpful resource for: Small group discussions and leaders of worship Adults not satisfied with trite devotional guides, but willing to wrestle with a faith that is rational and accepting of scientific discoveries The growing number of "nones" in the United States and Europe, who, while not believers, are open to be challenged by the possibility that there really is a God Offerings affirms a God whose glory is revealed in creation, whose mighty acts are made known in sacred scripture, and who demands justice, love, and faithfulness in human life. If someone asks, "Would you like corn flakes or raisin bran?" you can reasonably answer, "I don't care. It doesn't matter. Either one is fine with me." But with the ultimate issues of life, you cannot sit on the fence. You cannot pretend that a decision is not required. You must make a decision. What are you waiting for?

When someone says, 'I can forgive, but I cannot forget,' they really are saying, 'I will not forgive.' Unforgiveness, resentment, and bitterness are spiritual maladies that keep many people from living a Spirit-filled life. Joyce Meyer says that keeping score of all the hurts we have suffered does more spiritual damage to us than those who have offended us. In fact, we can suffer serious physical illnesses as a result of unforgiveness. Is it difficult to forgive? Absolutely, but the rewards are well worth it. In The Power of Forgiveness, Joyce Meyer reveals that when we choose to forgive others, we release ourselves from sin's power. The act of forgiving them allows God to work his will and our healing in the situation. Forgiveness in the power that will change life of defeat into one of victory.
