One inspirational read that made an impact in my life was Joel Osteen’s Your Best Life Now. Almost all of my friends I know have read this one way or another and are absolutely raving about Osteen’s straightforward approach into living our lives victoriously the way God wants us to live it every day.
I thank God he uses people like Joel Osteen to write something like this and be a life coach to us Christians who are facing spiritual battle and experiencing adversity whether physically, mentally or emotionally. I vouch for this guy as he, prior to being the senior pastor of Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas, faced numerous trials and disappointments but through it all he was able to overcome these obstacles. Truly, you can never live your best life now unless you never try to develop a prosperous mind-set and living favor-minded.
You may be facing financial problems, relationships or some kind of setbacks but then we should never forget the value God has placed in us. We are valuable to God and we are to trust that He who can make impossible things possible is going to help solve our problems and make it come to pass. Who doesn’t experience rejection, disillusionment and adversity? Of course everyone does but then who can be against us if God is with us! The question is how do we face life’s difficult moments? So if you want to break out and experience a life full of potential that God intentionally wants us to have, check out this book if you haven’t had done it already.
The book has seven Chapters—seven steps he offered for us to begin a journey to a brighter, godly future:
One: Enlarge your vision
Two: Develop a healthy self-image
Three: Discover the power of your thoughts and words
Four: Let go of the past
Five: Find strength through adversity
Six: Live to give
Seven: Choose to be happy.
Learn to speak blessings over your life, your friends and your future.
God often works the most when we see it and feel it the least.
You do your part, and God will do His part.
Don’t focus on your weaknesses, focus on your God.
If you will transform your mind, God will transform your life.
