Joyce Meyer Testimony: One Life
“Can you recover? You’re looking at somebody who did. You’re looking at the evidence that you can recover… He will give you beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning… He will give you a double blessing for your former trouble.
I can’t do anything about what has happened to me… I didn’t have a very good start in life but I’m going to have a good finish and everyone of you can have the same thing…
I pray that you will understand that God loves you and that no matter what has happened to you in your life, no matter how deep of a pit you are in, God will reach down in it and lift you out and He will make you whole. God can renew your mind through His Word. He can heal your emotions. He can help you financially, physically heal your body; He can give you the right friends, the right social life. God can help you. And He wants to help you. It’s not gonna be quick, it’s not gonna be easy, but it’s much easier than staying in bondage… You have to make a decision that ‘I’m gonna step out on this journey by faith and I’m never going to give up.’ God will not give up… on you. If you’re really sincere, and you really want this complete restoration and healing in your life, then I want you to agree with me in prayer today and I believe it’s gonna start a brand new journey in your life.”
