I've heard many people complain about their lives. They just don't like life the way it is for them. “If you don't love your life,” Meyer writes, “then you should do something to change it.” (ix)
We may not be able to change our circumstances but we can always change our attitude. Having a positive attitude is Meyer's message. We can love our life because God has given us the tools to do so, Meyer insists. She has filled this book with positive encouragement, Scripture teaching, and great stories.
Meyer knows about loving life when circumstances have not been pleasant. Her past includes sexual abuse when young. She admits that her early life was not one of optimism and trust in God. She shares how she has learned to trust God and His provision. There are good suggestions for changing attitudes, overcoming obstacles, looking forward to the potential of each day, valuing time, trusting God, focusing on blessings, learning true contentment, dealing with anger, and much more. I like that she has included bullet points at the end of each chapter to help us remember the major points of her teaching.
This is classic Meyer. Her teaching is a positive and faith filled shot in the arm. If you have read many of her books, much of this material may be familiar. If you have never read Meyer, get ready for one positive lesson after another based upon and woven through with Scripture.
You can watch Meyer teach on this subject here. You can find out more about the book and watch the book trailer here.
