'Expect God's Favor': Interview with Joel Osteen
The megachurch pastor says that by expecting the best, we can enjoy the abundant life God wants for us.

But they like watching you on TV.
What's the most important thing to do to overcome guilt and shame?
We've got to forgive ourselves for mistakes we've made. A lot of people tell me, "I don't feel like God wants to bless me."
If we don't forgive ourselves for mistakes we've made-and everybody's made their choices, some worse than others--we'll never experience the good life God has in store.
It's just changing your attitude and knowing that God gives you your value. Even though somebody's tried to devalue you, you've just got to say, "I've gotta let that go and know who I am, who God made me to be."
