Today is no ordinary day. You may perform simple routines, feel uninspired, or lack the excitement of hope. But today could be the most important one of your life — depending on how you choose to spend it.Joyce Meyer encourages you not to waste another minute. There is something special, valuable waiting for you to discover in each day. And when you spend time with God daily, asking Him to help you find it, you’ll unlock the wonderful purpose He has in store for you. When you commit to letting God direct you, instead of resting passively in your own disappointments, you’ll be open to receive greater happiness and blessings than you ever thought possible.All you need is the right encouragement. With over four decades of experience helping others find fulfillment, Joyce shares key biblical insights and personal stories that will help you make the most of this moment and SEIZE THE DAY!
Not too long ago, I asked my Aunt Barbara to read a book I was having a very difficult time getting started with. She read the book, taking detailed notes while reading it, and then she provided me with a written report that would certainly give her an “A” in any school reading class. When I recently got a little behind in my book reading, I remembered how awesome she handled that difficult book, so I thought I’d ask her if she had any interest in reading a Joyce Meyer book for me. Here’s what Aunt Barbara said:
“I have always been a fan of Joyce Meyers, and so did not hesitate when asked to read and review Seize The Day by Joyce Meyer.
I’m also known as a planner. I plan my days the night before and when tomorrow is over, I ask myself, where did the day go and what did I accomplish, so much for all my plans. This self help book reminds us that we can make all the plans we want, but God’s plans aren’t always our plans.
Seize the Day tells us that when we try to control our life, God has his own ways of letting us know that He is in control of each and everyone of us, and He has a purpose for each of us. We only have one life to live so if it’s not going in the direction it should be, with God’s help each day we can change the direction. God can, not us.
The book tells us to “seize the day” and start making the moments count. It’s all about learning to Live on purpose”. Nothing we have or do is the result of anything we say or do. God has given each of us freewill to make choices.
When our day is over and we feel that nothing we planned has been accomplished, it is because we probably did not include God in those plans.”
