No matter what your past, Meyer says, you can begin again. You have to be willing to take that step but God's grace will enable you.
This is another biblical and very practical book from Meyer. She begins with the underlying biblical basis for beginning again. She covers how to deal with your emotions, defeating the giants in your life, taking that first step, refusing to give up, learning from past mistakes, embracing plan B, dreaming again, and much more.
Meyer has included many inspirational stories of people who could have quit but instead began again. She has lots of practical steps to take based on the Word. All of it is wrapped in the necessity of having a deep and abiding relationship with the Lord.
God created you with unique gifts and talents. This book will encourage you, no matter what has happened before, to begin again in living the live God has for you. And just in case you don't know God personally, there is a prayer of salvation at the end.
Food for thought: "God wants you to participate in the miracle He is doing in your life." (110)
From acclaimed motivational author and speaker Joyce Meyer comes a brand new book You Can Begin Again - released through FaithWords. Well known for her teaching abilities on God's Word and life lessons from her own experiences, she presents seventeen chapters on beginning again. Her message is that no matter what, you can do things differently and begin afresh with a new sense of rebirth.
The book's chapters are divided up into three segments: New Beginnings, What's Stopping You?, and Today Is Your Day. Chapters include a variety of stories drawing from Joyce's own past life, tales about true underdogs, miscellaneous quotes, scriptures, lists of things to do, and an ending summary. The premise presented by Joyce is that there are no limits to what God can do in your life when you surrender it to Him and pursue a daring future.
I enjoy picking up the occasional book by an inspirational author. I like Joyce Meyer, and while I may not agree with everything she mentions in her books, I still find her ideas encouraging. You Can Begin Again forced me to examine where I was at in my stage of spiritual growth. Did I need to change my schedule, my thinking habits, or the way I handled stress? Yes, it presented truth - I realized that it's beneficial to live outside of our limiting boxes of self-reliance.
I didn't fathom how detrimental and unhealthy it was to house negative thoughts when it comes to living a passionate life for God. There's no reason to pull yourself down. You want to reach up and thrive. Joyce Meyer gave me meaningful bits and pieces to chew on. Was I going to remain where I was at, fall deeper into a tedious plan, or break out of my self-created wall? This book helped open my eyes to what I didn't see before.
I really, really liked this title by Joyce Meyer. It has all that is needed for a quick and heart-stirring read during a busy and hectic day. I would recommend reading one chapter daily for a full reflection on her words. The only thing that I personally didn't agree with was the idea of generational curses. Regardless, it was mentioned little and didn't ultimately detract from the rest of the book.
I highly recommend You Can Begin Again to lovers of Joyce Meyer's work, readers who are looking for motivation, and to wandering souls who are searching for second chances.
