Loved this book! It was very inspirational. The talk was very positive; almost forcing you to want to live a better life. It's just what you need to kick-start yourself into being a better person and even helping you get through a tough situation. A must read!

Recommends it for: anyone who wants to improve their outlook on life
Short Bible passage & one or two page commentary followed by short prayer - renewed from library & would love to own a copy - I enjoy him on tv on Sunday evenings at 11pm channel 33 - he gives a thirty minute sermon that is almost always uplifting for me - I never was a person who watched church on tv before, but I discovered his program in June while channel surfing & try to catch it every week now.

This is probably the BEST devotional book I've ever read/used. If you want to begin every day encouraged, full of hope and ready to face the day in victory...READ this one! Excellent!

Joel's book contains 90 devotionals of about three to five pages in length. I found the devotionals useful, but knowing that he comes from a mega church background, I felt I wasn't going to get real in-depth devotionals concentrating on passages from the Bible. Bible passages were included each day, but sometimes I had trouble seeing the connection between the passage for the day and the devotional he was including with it. At the end of each devotional, there is a prayer. However, I'm not sure ...more

Read Day One This Morning and was touched by how appropriate the words and wisdom were for exactly where I am in my life-path. Books like this tend to be good or bad based on what you read into them and I am REALLY Trying to read this in the best possible light and learn from the wisdom this preacher has to offer since our underlying theologies and approaches towards understanding what God is up to in the world from what I have understood is SO DIFFERENT.

As is our approach to scripture which see

Willing to overlook the skewed theology and look at it for what it has to offer Christians. It's listed in the Inspirational/Devotional category and not the Theology section. Originally when I got this as a gift I didn't want to read it due to the fact that seminarians view some of what he says as heresy. It's up to me to personally distinguish what I can and cannot take out of this book regarding faith. So I did two things as I read it: underlining what could be taken as skewed or off theology. ...more

This book has been instrumental in changing my life. I have included it in my Devotional Time and journal to each devotional. I have also written about some of the devotionals that especially impacted me. You can check out my response to some of those devotionals at http://www.trc38.blogspot.com I have highly recommended it to friends and others I've met along the way. If you are looking for a tool to guide you into a more positive, God-focused way of thinking and living, this book is for you!

I have read many of Joel Osteen books over the years; however, purchased the audio book as a refresher. It is a short yet powerful read which comes at a perfect time in my life when I need to think “bigger”. In addition reiterates how we should look for ways to help others and by doing so opens up our hearts for abundance --do not continue to dwell on negatives as this is what we continue to bring into our lives, but the positives to open our minds and hearts for good things to come.

This is a christian based book, but really just talks about livinh in the here and now and choosing what/who you want to be. Not something you read front to back, you open it to any page a few times a day or once a day and read the 2 or 3 pages of that devotion. I am finding it to be very powerful and rewarding. A very good read!

This was a much needed dose of inspiration. I like Joel Osteen's approach to religion. It's less guilt based and more person driven. If you want a good daily devotional pick this one up.

Reread in 2016.

Truly Inspiring. Osteen has a way of quoting verses from the bible without it sounding like an evangelical hip hip hooray chant. He succeed in making us look at the power of the words behind it and with prayers can only make us act with faith to achieve the best life possible.

A good devotional book. Like all devotionals, some points really hit home so I will keep it around and look back when I need some encouragement.

Never actually finished. Sent to a friend who I thought would need it even more. That counts as finishing...right?

This is a book that you can read one chapter at a time and then when finished, just start over again.

I really enjoyed reading a small section each day. The messages are very positive and a great uplift.

This is a really good devotional. My mom gave it to me. I had never been a fan of Osteen before, and I'm not sure I would seek out his work after this one. But it is an excellent devotional.

I love Joel's Sunday messages, his email devotionals, and this book was no deviation from his usual wisdom and wit. I love this man's messages, mind, and soul.

I like Joel, it just took me a really long time to finish this. It was all pretty repetitive, which i think was the point. Just was not really for me.

Very uplifting, it inspires hope - yet I can't get past his ideas of goodness equaling material prosperity.
