full text "Increase Your Happiness" 13 Feb. 2018 - Joyce Meyer.
Joyce Meyer: and when I started, I didn't have a lot of real proof, but I sure wasn't getting any good outta what I was doing. So, if what you're doing is not working, why not try what a few million other people tell you works? See, you'd have to know what I was like. Man, I was awful. And I had been treated so bad. My dad sexually abused me. My mother didn't know what to do about it, so she didn't do anything. I had other relatives who sexually abused me. I married the first guy that came along, and he ran around with other women, and wouldn't work, and stole stuff from me. One night, I woke up and he's trying to steal my wedding ring off my finger to go sell it. I mean, I was so dysfunctional. My family was they were the very definition of dysfunction. We invented dysfunction.
Joyce Meyer: I didn't know how to have a relationship. I was a manipulator. I was a controller. I was negative. I was sour. I was judgmental, jealous. How much time do we have? And I'm not just up here, you know, like some spiritual cheerleader. I wanna tell you that Jesus has set me free. He has set me free. "he whom the son has set free is free indeed."
Joyce Meyer: "that you shall know the truth, and the truth will make you free." It's what you believe. I've decided to believe what this says, even if I don't understand it in my brain. I do not understand how I could be the righteousness of God and holy. Yeah, that's what the bible says, you're holy. Whoo, now I wanna tell you what, we are making the religious devils in georgia mad right now. I mean, they are not liking this meeting.
Joyce Meyer: because religion wants you to be loaded down with rules, and regulations, and things you have to do to be good enough for God. So, you gotta sign off of that plan. To get on God's good plan. God loves you. He loves you unconditionally. He doesn't love you because you're worth being loved, because the fact is, you are not. But he loves you because he is good, and the more you see how good he is, the more you're gonna want to behave right, not because you have to, but because God is so good you can't hardly stand it.
