5.0 out of 5 stars Good and convenient daily devotional October 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thirty-one good devotionals that each focuses on a different one of God's promises to us. These are just the right length for me. Each morning I spend about 5-10 minutes to read, study and meditate on that day's devotion. The topic for that morning becomes my theme for the day. For example today being the 5th the topic/theme is to be grateful to God for all of his blessings. So today whenever I had a free moment I did just that.
I plan for this to be my morning devotional for the next 12-15 months. Each month with each re-reading and meditation I will go further and deeper with the daily themes than I did the month before.
I am also keeping a notebook in which I will write my thoughts and insights. I have a section at the end where I am recording every time I see God's hand at work in my life. In just five days I have nine entries.
If you are looking for a daily devotional that is upbeat, inspiring and designed for someone with a busy life then this may be what you are looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Game Changer! September 18, 2012
Often times we forget the things that are promised to us and how our words can create or repel our future. This is an absolutely priceless alternative for the mostly negative news, first thing in the morning diet. This is also great for playing in the background, as your kids are getting ready for school. If you don't think what you hear in the morning gets recycled all day, listen to a song first thing when you awake and you will get my point. You will sing it all day.

This is a uber-fantastic piece of work. I could not be more pleased. Bravo!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Norman Vincent Peale for the 21st Century April 11, 2013
I moved to Houston, last September, not really looking to attend church after so many years away, but a years worth of ispirational book reading, and a friend's recommendation to read this book, led me to begin attending Lakewood.

Joel Osteen reminds me of the inspirational, prosperity, think positive, God wants you to succeed, gospel preached at pulpit and in book, by Norman Vincent Peale.

31 essays on ways to change your life for the better, It is a book that I read in a day, and found thought provoking, and very inspirational. He can make his points in a worthwhile, humorous, way that one won't forget, in far fewer pages than many of the usual suspects in the TV and Mega Church world can.

There is a sincerity that comes across, as well, and he can be self-deprecating when it will help make his point.

The first day I attended the church I got in line afterwards to have him sign my copy of this book.
I shook his hand and told him I was a creative writer and hopeful future author recently moved here, with hopes of starting fresh, career-wise, personally and creatively, and asked if he had any advice for such a person.

He smiled, looked at me, and said "Wherever you go, there you are"....A message on my wall at home.

3 Simple Rules of Life:

If you don't go after what you want, you will never have it.

If you don't ask, the answer will always be no.

If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.

You think I was meant to go to church that day? :-D

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Encouraging October 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
To be honest, I am not a big Joel Osteen fan but I felt very drawn to this book. It has ministered and encouraged me as I have read through this promises. It is so easy to forget that God's promises are yes and amen when you are going through hardship. I encourage you to read it and re-read the promises. I have been praying these declarations and I am seeing situations change, family members receiving the favor God in various area's of their lives. I have gained more peace as well because my spirit has been ministered to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another solid addition to Your Joel Osteen Collection September 19, 2012
I LOVE everything Joel Osteen. I think his love, compassion, and inspiration make him a tremendous minister and a wonderful person. His books offer so much insight into God and have helped so many nurture their own private and personal relationship with God. Although his newest book is another excellent addition to the collection, it is not as as good as his previous ones, especially Every Day A Friday. The book itself is pretty short. I am not a very fast reader but i finished it in one sitting pretty quickly. Granted, its supposed to be read once a day for a month for the full effect but even so it still feels a little short. Also, a lot of the stories in his book are compiled from his other books which makes his newest book feel slightly rehashed. To sum it up: If you like Joel Osteen then you probably cant go wrong with buying this book, but if you have read all of his other books and are not sure if to buy it, then you could probably skip it and not miss too much.

More About the Author

Joel Osteen is a native Texan and the Pastor of Lakewood Church, which according to Church Growth Today is America's largest and fastest growing church with over 38,000 attendees. On July 16, 2005 after completing $95 million dollars in renovations, Joel moved Lakewood Church into its new 16,000 seat home -- the former Compaq Center which is now the largest regularly-used worship center in the United States. According to Nielsen Media Research, Joel is the most watched inspirational figure in America. His weekly sermon is broadcast into television markets across the U.S. where it is viewed by seven million Americans each week and more than 20 million each month. His weekly broadcast is also seen in almost 100 nations around the world. In 2004 his first book, Your Best Life Now was released by Time Warner debuting at the top of the New York Times Bestsellers List and quickly rising to #1. It remained on the New York Times Bestseller for more than 2 years and has sold more than 4 million copies. Most recently, Joel was named as one of Barbara Walters' "10 Most Fascinating People of 2006" and he was selected as the "Most Influential Christian in 2006" by the readers of Church Report Magazine. The son of John Osteen -- a highly respected minister of the Gospel and the founder of Lakewood Church -- Joel attended Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma where he studied radio and television communications. In 1982, Joel returned to Houston and founded Lakewood's television ministry where he produced John Osteen's televised sermons for 17 years until January 1999 when his father passed away. For many years John Osteen encouraged Joel to preach, but he always declined preferring to work behind the scenes. In early 1999, Joel felt compelled to accept his father's invitation and he preached his first sermon on January 17th of that year. Little did anyone know that would be the last Sunday of John Osteen's life. Two weeks later Joel began preaching and later that year was installed as the new Senior Pastor of Lakewood Church. Almost immediately, weekly attendance began to grow at an extraordinary rate and, in 2005 Joel moved Lakewood Church into its present location, the former Compaq Center, a 16,000 seat arena that was once home to the Houston Rockets professional basketball team. Now, with his wife Victoria and the leadership staff of Lakewood, this innovative church is poised for the new millennium. Joel's extraordinary success can be found in his core message: That our God is a good God who desires to bless those who are obedient and faithful to Him through Jesus Christ. It is Joel's deepest desire that his own life be an example of that principle and that everyone who hears this message of hope and encouragement would choose to accept God's goodness and mercy and to become all that God wants them to be.
