Book Description
Publication Date: April 3, 2012
Building on her signature message of using the mind to master difficult emotions, Joyce Meyer 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.” Meyer argues that properly handled, anger is an alert system that something is wrong and needs to be resolved.

In her latest 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? Joyce 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.

Meyer 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.

A very powerful book that helped me get out of depression due to abusive relationship!

I had been abused in many ways by my husband and though I tried very hard, it was very difficult for me to be free from all the painful memories. I would often wonder, ‘Why would God just let him be when he is so destructive and evil?’
At one point, I did have to run away from him with our child for the sake of sanity as well as safety. Life became frustrating because I am in no man’s land – not divorced, not separated, yet I’m practically a single mother in every sense.
I read Karen’s post and totally understand what she’s saying about the danger of reconnecting with dangerous exes. I believe that God will never force us to meet and reconnect with husbands or exes unless hearts are ready and God’s timing is ripe. I believe what Joyce is saying here is to prepare our hearts the way God wants us to so that He can work in our relationships and bring healing.
It takes a lot of effort on my part to finally accept and say that despite what happened, God is good and His goodness and faithfulness will prevail in this mess of my life.

After reading this book, I was able to set aside all the excuses. Finally, I decided and declared that I forgive and bless my husband and let the past pass. It does not mean I am running back to him right now because he, unchanged and unrepentant, will definitely harm me.
It just means I am not gonna spend nights crying, hurting, and hating my husband. I am so tired of it and I want to be free. I have no idea how long I have to live like this, but I will put my hope and trust in God – something I could not do prior to reading this book.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to take off huge burdens of offenses, anger, turmoils, and painful memories resulted by strained relationships: While they never just disappear,it feels so much better and lighter to set them aside and let God take care of these heavy loads.
Joyce is right, we must forgive because God commands us to forgive as the ones who are forgiven. But in the process, we will realize that we are actually doing ourselves a huge favor by forgiving… Freedom from depression, self-pity, and pain!
