In Wisdom from Joyce Meyer, Joyce Meyer presents her 'Submission is An Attitude and An Action' excerpt.
Joyce Meyer, renowned evangelist, admits that her philosophy of life was not always as positive as it is today. She admittedly came from a background full of sexual, verbal, and mental abuse, emotional pain and hurt. She believed if you didn’t expect anything good to happen in your life, then you wouldn’t be disappointed if it didn’t. Because of some bad things happening in her life, she was afraid to believe anything good was in store for her. Her life was negatively-influenced, from her thought life to the words that she spoke. She admonishes her audiences to face problems in their lives head-on, and not to make excuses for the problems themselves. She preaches against people being led by their emotions. She embraces the philosophy that we, as individuals, can choose each day how we are going to feel, regardless of the way we feel when we first wake up. She admits that many times, we allow our emotions to guide us. We need to separate what we know to do with the direction our emotions are pulling us to.
Managing our emotions is how to keep ourselves on the right track in life. She cites the actions of Jesus. How surely he did not ‘feel’ like going to the cross to be crucified for our sins, but He chose to do it. She believes that some people are unhappy because they haven’t developed to their full potential. She urges people not to be so afraid of failing that you never take a chance. Her philosophies are based in Christian beliefs and biblical principles. In the books she writes, she uses a generous amount of scripture references to back up her philosophy. She advocates investing time and hard work for developing to your full potential in order to have the most successful and fulfilling life you can.
