This is a wonderful way to start your day. I have used it for several years. It has a way of almost always addressing an issue that I am dealing with and shows me how being confident in Jesus and communicating with Him on a consistent basis will give me strength and courage to go forth and through whatever issue is before me.
This book also reminds me to give thanks to God in and for all things.
I prefer to spend the additional money to purchase the large-print deluxe edition. Because the scripture references are printed there, it is much easier to read them. Having to go to the bible to look them up is just an extra step when you are in a rush to get your day started, I would rather use that time to pray and meditate for a short time about what I have just read. I found I did not take the time to do the research. I much prefer to have the scriptures already there for me.
The writer puts forth words as if they are the words of Jesus...but come on people...think about it! Are they? If you say yes, then this is scripture equal to the Bible. If they are not, then it is just lies...maybe well intentioned lies, but lies. Plus, it is just weird. The author capitalizes "My Presence" and "My Greatness." Weird.
