When Pain Overcomes Your Soul, How Do You Heal?

Tuesday, March 3, 2020 / TBN Staff

Best-selling author and speaker, Joyce Meyer, shares her personal journey of overcoming pain from her past.

 
When Joyce was a child, she was abused by her father. The process of healing took years because of resentment, unforgiveness, and hurt.

How Does Healing Begin?

Healing begins when we allow the Holy Spirit to challenge our hearts. Joyce urges Christians to grow in vulnerability; first with God then with community. She believes “it’s our secrets that make us sick.” However, as we surrender our wounds, God pierces our soul with truth.
 
John 8:31-32 says: If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
 
During moments of great despair, Joyce fervently prayed for healing. From this intimate relationship, the Holy Spirit spoke to her in radical ways. Joyce followed God’s plan as she released her pain into His hands. God’s truth set her free!
 
Joyce believes that “as you move in God’s timing, you experience a stronger anointing on your soul.” What is God asking of you? 
 
For Joyce, God pushed her to serve others, specifically her dad. This was the hardest challenge she ever had to face. However, God showed her how to forgive, serve, and demonstrate mercy to those who don’t deserve it because none of us do.
