Meyer writes a valuable and convincing primer on what Buddhists would call "mindfulness" from a dedicated Christian perspective. Using a rich scriptural context, she convinces listeners " to think what you are thinking about." Filled with many anecdotes from ministry, her points are made in a accessible and personable style. The psychology is sound though ensconced in conservative Christian language. Happily, Meyers encourages meditation, both on scripture and in prayer as a way to be in the moment. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My main concern with this book is that it did not expand on deliverance prayers, since using willpower and few general prayers is not enough to overcome negativity created by the enemy. Although there are a number of good deliverance books out there like "Prayers That Rout Demons," by John Eckhardt.
Joyce goes on to give practical tools and guidelines on how to get focused and stay focused on God. She gives specific examples of negative mindsets and how to counter them. Joyce continues by saying God strengthens us through each challenge and gives us the grace to overcome it, and that it is our mental attitude of perceived high difficulty which can get in the way of triumphing over that challenge. I also enjoyed many pieces of wisdom Joyce provides such as "There are multitudes of unhappy, unfulfilled Christians in the world simply because they are busy trying to make something happen, instead of waiting patiently for God to bring things to pass in His own time and His own way. When you are trying to wait on God, the devil will pound your mind continuously demanding that you "do something." He wants to move you in fleshly zeal and action because he knows that the flesh profits nothing." She goes on to encourage her readers to apply personal responsibility while staying obedient to God as a steady way to success. So overall you will probably find this book a great and useful read.
Anyone who has watched or listened to Joyce is familiar with her vernacular. You can HEAR her say these words as you read them. It's written as if she is sitting right there in your reading nook, sharing a cup of coffee or tea with you, reading devotionals along side you. It reads like your best friend is trying to say, 'Hey! Wake up! Shake off all this negativity, all that crap you don't need, and get your act together! I've been there and I can help.'
While there are plenty of scriptures and scriptural references, if you're not a practicing Christian and don't read the Word often, or at all, there is still a lot of secular reading here that can help anyone shed negative thinking and show you how you really can overcome your past so that you can enjoy a wonderful and peaceful present and future. This book may be a good introduction to a non-practicing Christian, to show you what the Bible and Christ can do for and in your life. It's written very well, but is a very easy read. So you want to just read and read.
There is a separate devotional you can get to go along with this, with a lot of good messages about daily living. If you don't read your Bible, or even own one, please don't be afraid to purchase this book. It speaks to people of all walks and faiths. It CATERS to Christians. But it has an awesome message in it for ALL people. If you've ever flipped through the tv channels and stopped to watch and listen to Joyce for a few minutes and found yourself thinking, 'Hey, this isn't bad. She's just talking about her own trials and tribulations and telling those people in the audience what helped her overcome them', you can rest assured this book is like that. She doesn't scold and call you a horrible person. She just lets you know what you can do to fix, or at least greatly improve, a few things in your life and be happier. My ultimate wish, of course, is that this book brings people TO Christ. He has done so many amazing things in my life, that I know He can do that for you too. :)
