And whoever trusts in the LORD, happy is he." -- Proverbs 16:20 (NKJV)
Pastor Joel Osteen points out that a recent study showed that people are 10 percent happier on Fridays because they are looking forward to the weekend. He goes on to say, "I challenge you to let every day be a Friday. Give yourself permission to be happy every day."
While to some this book will seem to be just about positive thinking, that's misreading of the book's content. A more accurate reading is that God is for us and wants those who believe in and rely on Him to be of good cheer . . . regardless of their circumstances. If you aren't a Christian, Pastor Osteen wants you to realize the great benefits that follow from making that choice to accept the free gift of Salvation.
Most parents say, "I just want my children to be happy." Most parents don't say, "I want my children to repent their sins, and believe in and follow Jesus as Lord and Savior." If more parents did choose the latter, a lot more children would be happy.
The book is filled with Scripture and practical anecdotes about how a Christian life should be led.
If you regularly listen to or watch Pastor Osteen's messages, most of the content will be familiar. What's different is that the messages are more concentrated and longer in the book than at Lakewood. Because of this shift in style, I found the information penetrated deeper into my spirit than before . . . and I was blessed by that.
The book is arranged around these seven themes:
1. Don't Give Away Your Power
2. Know What to Ignore
3. Live Without Crutches
4. Travel Light
5. Laugh Often
6. Be a Dream Releaser (for Others)
7. Celebrate Yourself
I believe it would be hard not to feel happier after reading this encouraging, Bible-based book. Take a look!
