Meyer is one of my favorite inspirational motivation authors. This book is a great way to get a dose of her positive encouragement every day. I really like how Meyer emphasizes looking for the good in every day. She advises we start each day with a positive attitude, with open eyes, waiting to see how God is going to surprise us that day. And even when we don't understand what God is doing, Meyer encourages us to trust God.
What I especially like about Meyer is that she is so practical. She has a devotion on the armor of God, for example, with the next devotion on how to put it on and the kinds of daily decisions we need to make.
These devotions are not nice, sweet stories. Meyer deals with our everyday issues. She has a devotion on forgiving when we have been betrayed by another, for example. She highlights the importance of forgiveness by reminding us how our life and our ability to enjoy God will be diminished if we do not. Meyer is realistic and honest. In her devotion about hearing God, she admits she hasn't always heard perfectly.
This is a great collection of devotions for readers who need positive encouragement when life seems too much, when you want to give up. You'll get biblical admonishment and encouragement every day. God says His mercies are new every morning. These devotions will give you a fresh start every day. As Meyer says, “Your past is not your destiny.”
My rating: 5/5 stars.
