The inspiration that Joyce Meyer shares is always a gift when she is speaking live from the pulpit or whether you are reading her books. She provides very deep insight on how we control our destiny and personal decisions through prayer and thoughtful contemplation. The book is broken into four sections that break down how we need to look within and outside of ourselves. Each chapter is set up similarly – they provide stories and Scripture supporting Joyce Meyer’s position. The book flows as if she is presenting to you live, and it is easy to follow along as if I were learning from her morning sermon.
In this book, Joyce Meyer speaks to each of us readers discussing the connection between our thoughts, words, and actions. She shows us how each thought we have can (and will) come through when we continue to think about something – regardless of whether it is good or bad. We try so hard to keep our thoughts to ourselves, we stuff them and keep them internal, but somehow, someway, they will always find a way to come out.
Ms. Meyer uses scripture, personal stories, and reflection while providing us with suggestions on how we can clear our minds from the clutter that often comes with too many thoughts. It’s not easy, but she assures us that with God’s help it can be possible. We are reminded that we are not put here on this earth to control the change in any other person but ourselves, because we know that God is able and we need to leave it in His masterful hands.
Meyer talks about the importance of being focused and discusses the importance of having a disciplined mind. She gives good food for thought, and practical situations to help clear our thoughts, and work with God to become the person he knows us to be. As always, she is well written and I was reminded of some very important ways to stay close in my walk with God.
