Can I STAND to be blessed. This book reminds you that we have to go through a lot to be blessed, but the key is to stand during the storm no matter what and know who you are and whose you are. God will stand in the storms with you, He is always present. This book is wonderful and has given me a totally new perspective regarding adversity. You will be blessed by reading this book. ENJOY! Thanks Bishop Jakes!!!!!!!

Can you stand to be blessed? Oh how I struggled with that question. For many years I always heard it is better for a camel to enter the eye of a needle than a rich man. I always thought that riches or blessings were for sinners, but thanks to TD Jake and this book I have now seen the light! I can now share my story with the world and no longer hide from the possibility that I may one day become famous or so blessed as well. I now know that believers can also be blessed!

This is my 3rd copy of the book. I ended up giving the other two away although they were annotated from front to back with my own notes taken during 2 years of unbelievable upheaval and desolation in my life (which I call my TWO BLACK YEARS). This man has something to say and he says it with understanding, straightforwardness, love and kindness. He is very sympathetic and you can feel him right there with you throuhout the whole book, taking you gently by your shoulders and walking with you to the throne of God. During those TWO BLACK YEARS, I clung to the word of the Lord and to this man's book. I read it and re-read it reminding myself that God comes to us by the words and deeds of human hearts like his. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to know what Job felt like and survive it all. Through this book this man has proved to me that God cares, and that by hanging in there, by faith, He will bring us safely to to the other side.

Can 'YOU' stand to be Blessed? When I first saw the Title, I picked the book up. Then I saw the Author's name T.D. Jakes. I instantly opened the book and went to the check-out counter to purchase it. I really didn't know what the Author was going to say but I knew I had plenty of room in my heart and life to accept an abundance of Blessings. The book is small/short something you can read in one day. I guarantee you that if you read it in one day you will not be finished. Some chapters you will read several times not because they are so technical or hard to understand but because the book is just filled with answers. Oh, the book talks about YOU and I'm talked about also. Nothing negative, it is all very positive. If I could share one thing with you today- I would like to share the joy, the understanding, the happiness, the patience, the peace, the love, the reassurance, the power, and the 'BLESSINGS' received from reading this book. You will not be disappointed. Go out and purchase 'Can You Stand to Be Blessed' today. I have shared the book of Blessings with 4 of my friends and several are waiting for their rushed orders from the book store. Open your mind, Open your Heart and just make room for the Blessings. 'You too will have to tell somebody, you won't be able to keep it to yourself'.
