LOVE IT!!!!! LOVE IT!!!! Must Read Book!!!
The most practical book I have ever read on how to live your everyday life on purpose!
Do you feel like life is passing by you? As if you are trapped in a routine? A victim of your consequences, perhaps? Helpless under an unbreakable glass ceiling? In Seize the Day Joyce Meyer offers a compelling roadmap out of the quagmire of blah. I have to admit, I've just started seriously taking a look at some of Joyce's works out there and I believe this woman is spiritual mother of faith to many. This is a book about taking your life back for God. If you're stuck somewhere figurative, imaginative, in your mind, real or fake, I really recommend reading this. It is very encouraging for these reasons: 1) Joyce has been there She knows exactly what it's like to feel helpless, hopeless, and doomed to a life of victimization and passivity. She grew up in a very abusive household and her story of how Jesus rescued her is full of penetrating truths on how we can rise above our problems and experience God's victory. She knows what she's talking about! 2) She offers Biblical but very, very practical advice Her counsel is not only powerfully based on Biblical principles and Scriptures, but it is practical. Reading her book, I really felt like it was my grandmother telling met to get my act together! I appreciate that. 3) She does it all in Grace It's not easy to say the things she says in this book with Grace. Instilling in readers a sense of condemnation is almost inevitable when you are telling them to wake up. I said... 'almost inevitable'. Joyce understands this and gently affirms God's grace in our lives so you are not left feeling miserable and guilty. Very important! 4) Joyce is not another self-help guru Yes, practical advice is practical but she if very clear - real change in our lives only happens as we let the Holy Spirit transform us and our minds. If you look at Joyce Meyer's life, you really see a woman seizing the day. That's someone I'd like to learn more from especially if I want to seize my days for the Lord and make my life better too. Bottom line: Seize, Seize the Day. (I received a free copy of this from FaithWords to write an optional review... how could I not!)
I highly recommend Seize the Day by Joyce Meyer. The book would be great for anyone however I think it's even more impactful to those of us that are starting to realize our days may be numbered and anyone who just wants to make the most out of their life and anyone who has woken up and wondered where did the last month go or where did the last year go. If you want to live intentional and on purpose then this is a great book to not only talk about it in theory but give you practical steps. At the end of each chapter she summarizes the chapter which I think is an excellent way to go back and review it to start making good daily habits. As with most Joyce Meyer books, this one is packed full of scripture that supports her message. I'm reading the book on my iPad and I've highlighted a ton of passages. I also think having it in paperback could be very helpful so you could write in it. Joyce makes a great point at the beginning of the book because she is suggesting a lot of things that we can ‘do’ so she clarifies that Christianity is not works based. She has a great summary in the last chapter: " live your life on purpose for a purpose, and with Gods help, use the free will God has given you to choose His will. As you do so it will honor Him greatly and you will enjoy a satisfying reward." I received this book from NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.
This book is amazing, as you would expect from this author. The subject is just what is needed in this world right now. We are reminded that GOD, from the beginning of the fall, that as people we have "free will" She uses Ecclesiastes to bring about her point in each chapter. This book is communicating to the Christians new and those who have been Christians for a while, which is rare - usually books like these are geared to one or the other. She examines our right to make choices in our lives, and how these choices effect our lives. Ms. Meyers has a hit on her hand, but she usually does. I received a copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review.
