Book Description

December 10, 2008
The potential to live your best life starts with each new morning. With every sunrise, you can choose to approach the day with an attitude of faith and expectancy. Bestselling author Joel Osteen writes, "When you get up in the morning, the first things you should do is set your mind in the right direction . . . and then go out anticipating good things."

Now, for the first time, Pastor Osteen presents a tool to accomplish that goal. Based on his book, Your Best Life Now, he offers prescriptions for positive living in 365 daily messages. Each message is accompanied by a relevant scripture.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Inspirational (and Positive) Way to Start the Day December 15, 2008
Format:Hardcover
Perfect for : Personal Use, Great gift

In a nutshell: This is a wonderful book for daily use, that helps to start the day on a positive/inspiring note with biblical inspiration. It is small, about 6 inches tall, 4 inches wide and about 1 inch thick - it will fit great in a purse, glove box, desk drawer, etc, just put it somewhere so you can read it every morning. There is an inspirational thought and bible verse for each day of the year, and each one takes only a minute or two to read, but will help you stay inspired all day! This would be a great gift for any religious friend or relative you want to provide encouragement to.

Extended Review:
Content: I've taken the time to read ahead in the book so I could do a better review. I love the different ways I am encouraged each morning, revisiting my hopes and dreams (Jan. 1), looking at where you want to be in the future (Jan. 26th), "Dare to be Happy" with who you are (April 17th), etc. I've provided a few themes that are supported by scripture and examples, along with a great thought for the day.

Format: The book is very easy to follow - there is a short introduction, then a page for each day that includes: the date, a title theme, a scripture supporting the theme, and a story or example that ends with a type of thoughtful reflection for the day. The book has a section for notes at the end, and a built-in ribbon bookmark to help you easily find the next day.

Readability: Wonderfully easy to read, with a consistent format.

Overall: A great way to start the day! And it only requires a few minutes to read (maybe less?), and you will gain insight into yourself and great thoughts to take you through the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, wonderful devotions! June 27, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful way to start your mornings with thoughtful and insightful devotions. Joel Osteen's daily devotions are incredible how they speak to you as if they were written for you personally. I have learned so much from the devotions and have found so much peace from the messages in them. No matter what is occurring in your life you can gain so much from his words and feel uplifted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent thoughts to start the day February 14, 2009
By Rj
Format:Hardcover
I love to start my day by reading from this book. Even though the daily devotionals are short, they are packed with thought provoking words. This is a no excuses devotional because anyone can spend a couple of minutes reading the daily thoughts.

5.0 out of 5 stars a "Barnabas" - brother of encouragement April 26, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Life is hard. When the tough times are seemingly never ending, discouragement is there. Faith in God's goodness and care wanes. In this disjointed society where individuals are often alone and without the encouragement of a true Christian friend, Joel's words are like water to weary souls. Yes, there is a lot of repetition in his book as some one critiqued. But there is also a lot of repetition in the Bible. Humans don't learn by having been told once. The issue is not intellectual. Our spiritual problems often come because we give up, we give in. We NEED to be ENCOURAGED (lovingly reminded again and again ... as the Bible itself does) of the Truths that are tested during prolonged testing -- that God loves us - despite..., that we ARE overcomers in Christ, despite... Faith is a work in progress. I for one and very thankful for Joel's spiritual coaching to not give up in the race of life and faith in a good God in a sometimes bad world and to guard my thoughts, as the Bible itself teaches (and too little is preached on) because as my thoughts go so will my life (Proverbs) I've bought about 10 copies of this book to encourage and inspire others to not allows bitterness, faithlessness to set in and to grow their faith "muscles" - to dare trust God's goodness, despite whatever the obstacles/problems/hurts. I thank the Lord for Joel's ministry of encouragement. He, like all preachers and all humans, does not have all the Truth as 1 Corinthians 13 states no human does. But the bottom line of Christianity is a life of passionate love for God and fellow man -- to this end, I do believe that Joel succeeds in helping people choose to BE better instead of staying bitter - and Joel clearly communicates this goal is not one anyone can achieve on their own -- it's called a life of faith, hope, and love with full acknowledgment that only with Christ's help can anyone persevere in it joyfully and humbly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice pick me up February 27, 2013
By DP
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good little devotional to start the day. I have seen complaints that it is superficial . It is brief. To the point. If I need something more I will read around the scriptural text in my Bible or I will do an additional devotion from another source.
I have no complaints.

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.
