Think Better Live Better book and Think Better Live Better study guideby Joel Osteen
If you are feeling discouraged and starting to tell yourself negative things, there is on one better to help turn your thoughts around then Joel Osteen. Osteen's new book, Think Better Live Better is an uplifting book that can do just that.
Think Better Live Better's sub-title is "A Victorious Life Begins in Your Mind." Osteen shares many stories from his life, his family's life, church members and the Bible to help the reader see how powerful God with continuous faith in what God can do. Osteen helps us remember that God has done important things for all of us in the past. We need to keep our minds on those things when we are in disappointing or discouraging circumstances and to remember that He has a way out of them that will bring Him glory and honor if we keep our faith steady.
While I have watched Joel Osteen on TV, I have never read one of his books. I honestly don't know who couldn't use this message at one time or another in their life. I think we all have days where we start to get discouraged when we look around at our circumstances. Think Better Live Better reminds us that we can change our thoughts and keep going on until things turn around. One things that struck me in the book is that worry is meditating on the wrong things that lead us to discouragement. The Bible tells us to meditate on what is good (Phil 4:8) and when we do that, we are encouraged through Him.
The Think Better Live Better Study Guide is an especially useful tool to use with this book. Writing things down has a way of sinking things into our minds and spirits even better. I highly recommend using the study guide with the book either by yourself, with a partner, or in a group study.
I received this book and Study Guide from FaithWords. I was not required to write a review in exchange for the book.
