Today I want to share again a message from Mrs. Joyce Meyer; I like listening and reading what she has to say, because she makes it understandable and relatable. I so didn’t this message today and I hope it helps someone else as well.
Renew Your Joy
by Joyce Meyer – posted June 05, 2014
Honor and majesty are [ found] in His presence; strength and joy are [ found] in His sanctuary.
—1 Chronicles 16:27
Emotional trauma drains people of their energy. But the Word says, “Be not grieved and depressed, for the joy of the Lord is your strength and stronghold” (Nehemiah 8:10). The devil wants to steal your joy because he knows that joy is your strength. He wants you to be weak so that you won’t resist the turmoil he sets against you. That is why sometimes we need each other.
Some days God will send messengers to build you up in faith and renew your joy. Some days He will send you to someone else who is in a weakened condition because Satan has been pounding on them. Be someone’s friend today. They may need a friend to stand beside them and encourage them and to lift them up and pray for them.

I suffer trying to stay happy and peaceful, I always allow things and people affect me. Most things and most people stress me out so much that I would rather not deal with them; at least if I really don’t have too. But I have a small list of people that I would and will be there, here or anywhere for; because I know they would be there for me.
I guess I feel I am a “special case” and it takes a special person to truly know and understand the real me. The moment I met that one person that took the time to just listen to me, and actually responded to the things I had to say. That moment changed my life, he helped me; but as much as I feel like he made an impact in my life, he says I saved his. After three years now; we’ve been here for each other and he helped me through a lot of emotional moments, and I have a lot.
It’s so very true that God puts certain people in your life for reasons and I am thankful.
REMEMBER YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO THE ONES AROUND YOU. It is a wonderful feeling when one takes the time out to actually express and tell you just how much.
DO NOT ALLOW THE DEVIL TO STEAL YOUR JOY. FIBROMYALGIA CAN BE THE DEVILS PLAY GROUND, AS MUCH AS WE HBE TO ENDURE; HE CAN PREY ON US AT ALL OUR WEAK MOMENTS AND MAKE US FEEL WORTHLESS. GOD LOVES US AND THIS IS NOT THE END; ONLY THE BEGINNING.

Be Kind To You
The Daily Devotional by Joyce Meyer I read this morning; it reminded me that I need to pay attention to how I speak and think about myself. It’s not always the ones around you bringing you down; sometimes it’s just you.
Do you remember that childhood saying? “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
True enough, but words can hurt and they cut deep; depending on who’s mouth they’re coming out of.
Minister to Yourself
by Joyce Meyer – posted June 03, 2014
Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
—Proverbs 18:21 The Message
Our thoughts affect our words, and our words affect our lives— words have power, and they directly affect our emotions. Words fuel good moods or bad moods; in fact, they fuel our attitudes and have a huge impact on our lives and our relationships.
Choose to speak life-giving words.
Today I actually feel alright, surprisingly enough seems like the calm before the storm; like my body is giving me a little break before the week of my menstrual cycle really begins.
REMEMBER TO BE KIND TOO YOURSELF!

Pain Wasted Time
“If you’ve been hurt, God can take your bad experiences and make them work for your good. Believing this truth is a positive decision that can help stop your pain.
Choose to learn from the hurtful experiences instead of wasting your pain by allowing them to make you bitter. One way to do this is to overcome evil with good…”

I know I’ve probably said it before many times over and I’m about to say it again, “pain changed me, but it was somewhat a change for the better.”
Just like the message above says, TAKE YOUR BAD EXPERIENCES AND MAKE THEM WORK FOR YOU. Think about the good things that come along with this, we are always trying to find something to better ourselves; be more healthy, and many walks of life are brought together from all over the world, because we share the terrible thing called pain. Bringing awareness to fibromyalgia is not just on fibromyalgia, things so many other things connected to it that we are spreading awareness about many things that people don’t see as a problem, or life threatening.
You may not die from what we have, but you sure may think about dying a lot, because you feel as if you are.
My positive, happy, love filled heart from yesterday as seemed to stuck around for today, and I have nothing on my mind but being in dreamland today. Hoping my calm, peacefulness stays with me.
DO NOT LET YOUR PAIN BE FOR NO REASON, MAKE THE CHANGES YOU HAVE TO MAKE; IF YOU CAN.
DON’T WASTE ALL TIME HURTING! I know it’s not easy all the time or maybe never, but just think about your loving spouse, partner, kids, best friends, close family. THINK ABOUT LOVE! Love is a powerful thing if used right and it can always see you through the darkest and toughest moments.
I LOVE YOU ALL AND YOU ALL ARE AWESOME, WONDERFUL PEOPLE. fm/cfs

Happy Day Less Pain
“Our happiness and joy are not dependent on whether or not other people do what we want them to do. We may never be able to influence anyone else to do what we think is right. But with God’s help, we can change ourselves to bring about the results we want in life.” From the book Starting Your Day Right by Joyce Meyer. Copyright © 2003 by Joyce Meyer.

Today was a good day for me because I’ve had a best friend for three years today. This is a mile stone for me because it’s tough to meet someone who listens, hears and really willing to understand you as a person and as a person with fibromyalgia.
It’s amazing how having a connection with someone makes you feel so much better. Have you ever had someone who you just can’t seem to function that well without. And just by being able to talk with them, laugh it gives you a true feeling of happiness and free of stress. That was my day today and it felt great.
When I’m that happy I don’t focus on the pain, today it was somewhat nonexistent. The less pain I’ve felt in a long time.
LOVE IS A POWERFUL THING; USE IT.
A BEST FRIEND IS THE BEST ANGEL TO HAVE BY YOUR SIDE.
