A special thank you to Faith Words Center Street and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
“Words are powerful. With one word, God can change our lives and we can help change the course of someone’s day. Within one word, we can find encouragement and hope.”
Joyce Meyer, one of my favorites, one of the world's leading practical Bible teachers. A New York Times bestselling author, Joyce’s books have helped millions of people find hope and restoration through Jesus Christ. Each and everyone has a powerful and positive message.
WAKE UP TO THE WORD 365 Devotions to Inspire You Each Dayis a beautiful inspiring book to empower you! A book to treasure and a great addition to any library devotional collection.
A small book with a big message. A perfect size with a positive message to start each day. For those with busy lifestyles, starting from Jan 1-Dec 31, each day features a scripture, one word, and a message. At the end of each passage is a summary or affirmation with a positive thought-provoking takeaway.
An ideal gift for the upcoming holiday season. What better way to begin the new year or your spiritual journey. No matter who or where you are in your faith or journey, or your personal relationship with God.
From sins, mistakes, failures, or your path in life; you can discover a way of living, that will truly satisfy your soul. God has a plan for each of us. Whether you need a fresh start, or a renewed relationship. Each of us could use a positive word to help us navigate the negatives throughout the day.
Each word is powerful and I love waking up with a fresh new message each day. Whether you prefer your devotional time in the mornings or the evenings, each message will renew your spirit. One word for each day of the year, a definition of that word, a Bible verse and a Bible-based encouragement.
If you are looking for a quick word of encouragement, thought for the day, or something to think about, focus, or meditate during the day, it will assure a blessing.
A small, yet powerful book. The beautiful cover will draw you in and the soothing words will capture your heart. Share it with others! You will look forward to rising each morning, with a new special message awaiting you every morning. Like a special Christmas gift, all year long.
The daily devotional includes:
Powerful words to focus on each day
Scriptures and practical advice from Joyce for each word
Encouragement to read and pray every day
My favorite: July 14 "Risk":
"It has been decided by us . . . to select men and send them to you with out beloved Barnabas and Paul, men who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." Act 15:25-26
"I believe we should live our lives with an enormous spirit of adventure and risk. We only get one trip through life, and I don't want to be old and have nothing but regrets.
We face the struggle between faith and fear. Don't give int to fear of the unknown or of being adventurous-move past it and follow what God places on your heart to do. There will always be critics who tell us our faith is too risky but don't let them cause you to live a small, boring life. you can fully live today by not giving in to fear or by worrying about tomorrow.
If you step up to the plate, you might strike out, but if you don't try, you will never know the joy of hitting a home run!"
Risk: To venture: to dare to undertake.
