I Declare by Joel Osteen is absolutely fantastic. It will lift and inspire you to new levels as Joel Declares his Love for God by sharing amazing stories of inspiration. I have read Joels other books and with each one he gets better and better as he glorify God and opens his heart and mind for all to see.
Have you ever been lifted to new levels and wondered how you got there? Do you ever look back and realize that because of great teachers like Joel and others that shared their awesome relationship with God to others and how God can do the same for you in amazing and beautiful ways.
When we open our hearts and mind through reading such great works such as I Declare we start to see a change as we draw closer to God and and live a higher level.
Joel tells a story how negativity was effecting a man he knew that use to come by the church and perform repairs and maintenance on the church grounds. He would always talk negative about his children and his health. Joel was a young man at the time but realized that man was casting a negative future for himself and knew that this was wrong. The man eventually did get sick as he had prophesied over himself and passed away at a fairly young age.
There is power of putting God first and not letting negative thoughts and guilt enter our lives. We are bombarded these days by constant stream of negativity and guilt messages by the media. If we are trying our best to avoid that, we will start to see a change in our life. When we start to speak positive and get a positive vision for our lives we begin to lift up to whole new levels.
We start to feel better about our selves. Joels book is a great place to start as seen here in this video or come back here often for inspiration to Elevate your thinking and your life and live at a whole new level and maybe change your family’s life or a friend or coworkers life or who knows the possibilities, as you open your life up.
Its really not hard, in the morning start with God and start your day and either in prayer or simply say that you God for calling me precious and loving me I am putting my shoes of peace on, my belt of happiness Love you Lord!
Every Day a Friday: How to Be Happier 7 Days a Week is an amazing book by Joel Osteen
After reading this book I felt elevated in amazing ways never thought possible. Pastor Joels writing style is uplifting to say the least. He really knows how to relay everyday life type situations and correlate them to what we may be going through in our own lives. In this book he is really saying try and keep everyday lite and happy as if it is a Friday.
There are some chapters that really have you cracking up. A particular incident when he was traveling and a gets locked out of his hotel room really cracked me up. I could see that happening to me and it was interesting to hear how he got back in his room. He keeps it so real and fresh it just warms the soul to hear it.
Some Christian based books really just want to preach to you. Well this book is far from that as he really relates to everyday people and how to live your life at a happier more God connected level. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Put God first and watch him do the rest.
I think more then anything Joel is saying more then anything don’t let the Devil drag you down with loneliness and unhappiness. Be happy and honor God and the Enemy will run from you. I Like the part in the book where Joel started laughing at Victoria after he accidentally startled Victoria, and instead of getting mad at Joel she joined in and they all got a kick out of it. Now could of this gone badly? Yes. But they both get it and know the importance of keeping it happy and there home filled with laughter.
I think we all could take lessons from what Joel is teaching us here. When we begin to live life and feel better inside things start to change for us in amazing awesome ways. Live a happy life everyday. Don’t let the Nay Sayers drag you down. Keep the faith and don’t give up. You will eventually shine through and keep on shining the rest of your life.
Happy days are ahead you can get Joels Book Every Day a Friday in our bookstore. He has many other interesting titles as well. I have read some of them and will review them as I get a change.
Have a Blessed Day.
