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 agree that we're called to forgive everyone. However, we are NOT called to be reconciled with everyone, especially when the offender REFUSES to repent of their sin and change. In this case, Jesus Himself says we're to treat the unrepentant Christian like a tax collector and Gentile. We pray for them to come to repentance and be reconciled with us, don't speak ill of them, but we don't reward them by going around them as if nothing happened - that would be rewarding sinful behavior and we're not called to do that. This book comes across as if we're to abundantly reward unrepentant believers, thus rewarding them for their sin - how do they then learn the lesson that they're doing something wrong and committing sin if they're rewarded for it? It doesn't make sense biblically.

I've watched Joyce Meyer on television several times and have always enjoyed her program. I bought this book to help me get over feelings of resentment towards my ex-fiance, whom I broke up with after years of putting up with his hurtful, erratic behavior.

I truly enjoyed the first half of the book and felt so much better after reading it. Not so with the second half. What I took from the last chapters of the book is that to truly please God, I should do more than just forgive my ex; I should remain in contact with him and continue to try to help him out. If that's true, I might be in trouble. I want to 100% forgive my ex and wish him well, but he's (truly) a sociopath, and I don't want to be in contact with him again. My many attempts to help him did him no good and only hurt me. (And many others besides me have tried to help him and had their lives, hearts and finances hurt.) I find it disheartening to think God might be disappointed that I, and others in situations similar to mine, don't want to set ourselves up to be victimized again and have, therefore, decided to 'go no-contact' with our exes.

I don't know if I'd recommend this book to others or not.

I rated this book what I did because it deserves the rating plus more. This book helped me to be able to forgive a whole lot of people in my life. And I can relate to Joyce Meyer a whole lot. Our stories are different but yet at the same time they still feel the same. I have read a lot of Joyce books and although I love the other books too, I would have to say this one is my favorite because I could put this book in action while I was reading it. There were never a dull moment reading this book. I can truly say I love Joyce Meyer books & her for helping me to feel free to tell my story without feeling ashamed and no longer do I feel like a victim. I truly wish one day before I leave this earth me and Joyce Meyer meet. She is truly a blessed woman and I can honestly say I have found someone I can look up too. I would recommend everybody to read her books. Even the titles to her books will touch a part of your life you would relate to her. Keep doing what you are doing Joyce I'm proud of you. And I am truly your sister in Christ.
