Overview

When bestselling author Joyce Meyer posted "God's not mad at you" on Facebook, she didn't anticipate that her words would trigger thousands of responses of gratitude and relief. Apparently many Christians struggle to reconcile their perception of God as both a loving parent and a stern judge.
In GOD IS NOT MAD AT YOU, Joyce will help those who haven't truly received God's love because they are afraid of His anger and disapproval. She explores the source of this confusion, so His genuine character can be better understood and His love can be experienced on an entirely new level.

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

"It is important for us to remember that God's anger is directed toward our sinful behavior rather than toward us. If you feel guilty right now and are afraid that God is mad at you, then you are miserable. But your misery can be immediately changed to peace and joy by simply believing God's Word. Believe that God loves you and that He is ready to show you mercy and forgive you completely. Believe that God has a good plan for your life. Believe that God is not mad at you!"

--Joyce Meyer

    Is God angry with you? So many people steer clear of a relation

    Is God angry with you?

    So many people steer clear of a relationship with God simply because of past experiences in dealing with someone who has hurt you with their anger or their response to something you have done in the past. Most often times, the older we get the more likely we are to avoid those situations in dealing with people who are angry with us, thinking that is a better way to deal with life, rather than moving forward in that relationship. However avoidance does nothing to improve your relationships with people. If we don't work through our conflicts, we will find very little people in our lives we can relate to, and God is the biggest one most people run from.

    I believe most people like to think of God as someone that truly would rather not deal with because of the consequences of our actions might lead us to believe that some form of discipline is required for not doing the right thing. Yet God is all powerful, He is also all loving and has demonstrated the need for restoration with the human race. When Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden, God was already at work building a plan to restore the relationship He had with the humans He created through the birth and death of His son, Jesus Christ. God developed the plan that when you do something wrong, you need to find a way to seek forgiveness and make it right. When we sin, we need to repent, or turn away from that, seek forgiveness from God, and try and go about not doing that again. God doesn't ask for us to earn our way into His heart through some deed or hard work. He simply seeks our heart and words of repentance to restore the right order in our lives.

    He is the perfect example of what unconditional love truly means. He gave His ONLY Son, that we might once and for all have a sacrifice of love and blood that would resolve that relationship between us and our Creator through belief in what Jesus Christ accomplished. The day that Jesus Christ died on the cross was for all the sins of the world and its inhabitants, past, present and future, that simply through believing in what He did, that we could restore that relationship with God once again and be assured that when our lives are done here on Earth, we will live forever in eternity with God.

    Joyce Meyer once more takes readers through the different situations in our lives that show us that God is Not Mad At You so you don't have to avoid Him in your life. He isn't trying to control you, He's simply trying to love you, the way any father would their own child. But perhaps you don't have a great example of a loving father in your life to see that kind of relationship. Joyce addresses those as well using her own example of her father's abusive relationship to show readers how you can use these skills in every relationship you have and most importantly, how to restore the relationship with God in your life. Some may think that God will never accept them as they are; that they are not good enough for God, that God couldn't possibly forgive them or that even God is punishing them. All these issues and more are dealt with in Joyce Meyer style and one you can easily relate to in her book, God Is Not Mad At You.

    I received God Is Not Mad At You by Joyce Meyer compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review. If you find yourself struggling with issues from your past that are hindering your relationships with God and others, I would encourage you to pick up a copy of this book today. It will completely restore the issues that are holding you back and keeping you from building right relationships with people in your life. You too, can experience real love, acceptance and guilt-free living! I rate this book a perfect 5 out of 5 stars and LOVE every book I've read of Joyce Meyers mostly because she relates to us right where we are at in our lives!

    Reviewed by Brenda Ballard for Readers' Favorite

    God Is Not Mad at You: You Can Experience Real Love, Acceptance & Guilt-free Living. Joyce Meyers puts her love for God into this uplifting book. Most of us see why God would find fault in us, yet she explains that He sees not the person but the sin. Scripturally backed by beautiful passages from the Bible, Joyce takes great care in explaining to her readers why we are precious in His love and why we should see that. As humans, we are hard on ourselves in personal expectations. It is much easier to feel let down than rejoice, to be put down by society than lifted up. This book is a personal growth tool that everyone should read once. It doesn't matter where you have been, what you have done, and why you think you are not worthy. God has a plan for each of us and His love is unconditional. 

    God Is Not Mad at You is a life altering way of thinking that is written for everyone. If you have read anything Joyce Meyers has authored in the past, you will know that this woman has God in her heart and a love that surpasses this mortal world. If you are not familiar with her, I invite you to read this book as a gateway introduction to her teachings. This would be a wonderful book for abuse therapy, self help groups focusing on personal development, jail libraries, you name it!

    God Is Not Mad At Me :)

    This is a great book. It is very "Joyce" and I enjoy how she gets "real" with the reader. This is one of my top 2013 reads as I enter into 2014. I will say my highlighter got a serious work out because of all of the knowledge I wanted to keep in this book. I really recommend this book to a baby Christian or as myself, a strong Christian. We all Fall Short of the Glory and this book helps to recenter that fact. Please read it and share it with a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or complete stranger. It is a great book.

    A Great Book For Anyone

    I thought this was a really good book. It encourages those who are already established in the Christian faith to go deeper with God. Also for those who are seeking or those who coming back to God it shows them who God really is. For all of us it teaches how to develop a mature solid relationship with God. I will be reading it again.
