Great Quotes From Joyce Meyer’s Book, “The Confident Woman”
“…God’s total chest has some interesting things in it. He works with what the world would reject as useless and would throw away as trash.”
“Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, we will never lose our value in God’s eyes.”
"If God tells you to bring something out into the open or confront a situation from your past, be obedient to Him. He is letting you know this issue is holding you back from His best for you. Always pray about when and how to confront things, especially things that have been buried a long time. Remember, emotional stability comes through learning to live truthfully."
"You and I don’t have to be like everyone else or keep up with anyone else. Each of us needs to be who God created us to be, and we don’t have to apologize for it. We’re not all alike and we need to find the comfort zone God has established for us to live in, so we can enjoy our lives instead of making ourselves sick with an overload of stress and pressure."
"Life isn’t fair, but God is. He heals the brokenhearted and their wounds and bruises."
“Our world has created a false unrealistic image of what women are supposed to look like and act like. But the truth is that every woman was not created by God to be skinny, with a flawless complexion and long flowing hair. Not every woman was intended to juggle a career as well as all of the other duties of being a wife, mother, citizen, and daughter. Single women should not be made to feel they are missing something because they are not married. Married women should not be made to feel they must have a career to be complete. We must have the freedom to be our individual selves.”
“I believe confidence is all about being positive concerning what you can do — and not worrying over what you can’t do. A confident person is open to learning, because she knows that her confidence allows her to walk through life’s doorways, eager to discover what waits on the other side. She knows that every new unknown is a chance to learn more about herself and unleash her abilities.”
“Sometime we get so addicted to murmuring about the past and blaming the past for everything that we miss our whole future. You’re not going to enjoy your future, and you’re not going to enjoy your right now, if all you can do is be guilty and ashamed and afraid of your past.”
“Remember God is not surprised by your inabilities, your imperfections, or your faults. He has always known everything about you that you are just now finding out, and he chose you on purpose for himself.”
“Get up everyday, love God, and do your best. He will do the rest!”
“We don’t have to run from anything; we can confront all things in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is time to stop running, to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.”
“…If we look to God for our approval, we will never experience the pain of withdrawal because we have a constant, steady flow of his love and acceptance.”
“Grace is God’s power coming to us free of charge to help us do with ease what we could never accomplish on our own.”
