Although you realize Joyce Meyer writes her narratives for a general audience, this book gives the reader a feeling that her daily passages have been written just for you! This book and its companion, "Ending Your Day Right", helped me navigate through the loss of my parents. Going forward, I've purchased copies to give to others who have suffered loss of marriage, family members, etc. It is a great set!

A Daily Devotional Love
I love this little daily devotional. The entries are short, to the point and scripturally blended with insightful advice. Every Christian should have this devotional. As usual, Joyce Meyer has done a magnificient job in writing this book. I cherish it and will refer to it daily for many years.

An Awesome Devotional!
I believe most Christians would agree that starting our day out right with time with God makes for the whole day to go better. Joyce Meyer has written a perfect little companion book to be used each morning to go along with our Bible reading time. As the author states the book is to remind you of starting your day with God. This book is to be used to enhance your time with God to allow Him to open doors to speak to your own heart concerning the direction of your day. This is a day by day, 365 day, morning by morning devotional. This devotional offers keynotes upon how to enjoy your life, balancing your life, having discipline, and self-control, living without fear and just being happy and so much more. It starts out with a scripture verse and I like the fact that the verse is completely written out as so many devotionals seem to fail in this area. But what I found disappointing was the words in brackets in the midst of some of the scripture verses. I believe this was from the using of the Amplified Bible. I found myself having to reread the verse overlooking the brackets as I found these brackets take away from the verse itself. It might have been better to use a different version of the Bible without the bracketed thoughts. But the reader can read the verse as to their own comfort. Following the scripture verse is something to truly think about and apply to our day regardless of our own situation. Meyer doesn't get preachy or on a soapbox but gives a small thought for the day. With Meyer's teaching background she does a good job of giving a straight to the point easy to read meditation. I feel this is a must read for men, women and teenagers; who want to enrich their time with God and to start the day on a positive note. I believe Joyce Meyer says it best "I encourage you to seek God early each morning and to wait on Him to write in your spirit direction for the day." Believe me using this little devotional will make you excited to start each day with God. And as it states on the back cover of the book "It is a new day-and God's mercy is new every morning."
