Every now and again I like to change up my morning routine, whether it’s how I do my Bible reading or my meditation time, or even my daily devotional.  That’s why I was interested in learning more about Joyce Meyer’s book, Wake Up to the Word – it was time to change up my morning devotional.

This daily devotional includes:

♦  Powerful words to focus on each day

♦  Scriptures and practical advice from Joyce for each word

♦  Encouragement to read and pray everyday

I have always loved Joyce Meyer’s devotional books and I’ve owned – and gifted – more than a few to my friends and family over the years. This particular devotional one is designed to read early in the morning so that you can take the message with you and apply it throughout your day.

Each day of the devotion focuses on one word. You learn its meaning – perhaps in a new way. Then you’re given an illustration of the word that will connect it to the Bible. This allows you to take it with you and meditate on it, evaluating your own thoughts and opinions on it. Then, to finish it off, each word has a relevant Scripture to also reflect upon throughout the day. Joyce’s practical advice will help readers develop a greater closeness with God and ultimately allow us to receive the great things God has in store for our lives. She provides daily guided encouragement and prayer while helping us enter into a more structured plan for spending time with God (if we haven’t already developed one). This time with God allows us to ask and pray for, and receive His strength to overcome life’s obstacles.

Of course, I just happened to open the book as I was preparing to start reading it, and it fell open at September 22.  There I found one of my favorite verses, Hebrews 12:1 combined with the word “FInisher”.  How awesome is that? Well, I sure know there are no coincidences in life 🙂
