This indeed started and deepened my Christian life. I have been in a state of turmoil for my years, living in fear, in confusion of my beliefs. questioning if i should leave my cross bearer denomination or not. But i learnt one great thing and observed that is the only truth, I WAS FOLLOWING RELIGION AND NOT IDENTIFYING THAT I NEEDED TO BE IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. This book opened my eyes and recognized that God loves me. Jesus died for me so that I can have abundant life and understood the true meaning of love unconditionally. This was my first book of Joyce Meyer, and I have purchased others. She is my inspiration, her life and experiences reminds me of mine. She is indeed a minister and i pray God continue to give her the strength in her service for God and for the people. PLEASE PURCHASE THIS BOOK, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!!
