I've read and listened to a lot of Joyce Meyer’s books. But when I looked at this title God Is Not Mad at You I thought: Nope, I'm good.

I say this after a two-and-a-half year personal tribulation in which God remind me of his grace and mercy, and how he provides for us. Unfortunately I was also reminded of Man's need for self-preservation at the expense of others; the enemy’s joy at kicking someone when he/she is down, and Christians hiding their light if one isn't the same denomination. During this time, I listened to God’s voice, not man. I didn’t give up and I came out knowing (without a doubt) God is my source and he loves me - unconditionally.

Once I started God Is Not Mad at You I was hooked. I’d finish a chapter and think, okay, that one was for me after all, then the next chapter and the next… . Joyce hit so many points in my personal and work life – Performance Mentality, Rejection, Approval, Religion, etc. Joyce gives her own anecdotes, adds scripture then reminds us of God’s grace and mercy. She reminds us that God is a good God. Not a vengeful, disapproving God. Joyce lets us know “we’re okay” and we can grow in God without the added stress of a disappointing father giving us hard looks or rolling his eyes.

Like Battlefield of the Mind, God Is Not Mad at You is Highly Recommended.
