In the Introduction to her book, Meyer makes a statement that sums up the importance for taking control of our thought life. She says, "I firmly believe that each thing we do in life gives us experience for the next thing we will do and that our thoughtful planning is perfected by God as we place our trust in Him." She further says "It is impossible to change our lives unless and until we change our thoughts."

Meyer shares twelve "power thoughts" for us to grab hold of and meditate on in order to give our mind a mental make-over. These are:
1. I can do whatever I need to do in life through Christ.
2. God loves me unconditionally!
3. I will not live in fear.
4. I am difficult to offend.
5. I love people and enjoy helping them.
6. I trust God completely; there is no need to worry!
7. I am content and emotionally stable.
8. God meets all my needs abundantly.
9. I pursue peace with God, myself, and others.
10. I live in the present and enjoy each moment.
11. I am disciplined and self-controlled.
12. I put God first in my life.

I really liked this book. I like the way Meyer has written it so you can break up each "power thought" and study one a week. I definitely want to re-read the book, getting all I can out of it. At the end of each "power thought" she also includes a list of relevant scriptures. Scattered throughout the chapters are questions for you to answer, encouraging us to evaluate our current thought life and what we can do to change it. One thing she said that spoke to me as I'm in a season of waiting is that "Satan often works through or takes advantage of our weaknesses at the precise time God is trying to promote us or lead us to take a step of faith that will advance His Kingdom or move us closer to fulfilling our destinies."

Good book, nice woman, but not more. I didn't notice in the book anything spiritual what had to change my mind. NOTHING at all. Another book from celebrity and, again, no more. Maybe the book of Anatoliy Obraztsov "a crossing or the drop's history" will be more spiritual and intresting. My friends recommended me both.

    I read this book on my tablet. I think Joyce Meyer made some great points that are worth noting and listening to, but some of her opinions are too strong. Overall, it was a great book that made me think.

    Wrong category

    Why Meyer's books are sold in the religious section is a mystery to me. They are more appropriate for the self-help section. They have almost nothing to do with Christianity.

    I Also Recommend:

    "I can do whatever I need to do in life through Christ"

    Just like another book I recently read,"When God Stopped Keeping Score," this book is amazing, Joyce's words do more than enlighten you. She has the power to teach you the very thoughts that will make a big difference in your life, I highly recommend both books.

    Skip it.

    If you wish to by pass Jesus Christ and try to get to Heaven on your own terms then this is the book for you. Don't be lead down the wrong path. We all are looking for truth and you will only find that truth between the covers of the first book. The Bible. Just because they are famous doesn't make them right. Just because it makes you happy and feel good doesn't make it right. Search for Christianity in Crisis and you'll read the truth about Power Thoughts.
