My Time With God
My Time with God: Renewed in His Presence Daily - Joyce Meyer

Renewed in His Presence Daily 

By: Joyce Meyer

ISBN: 9781455560141

Publisher: FaithWords / Center Street

Publication Date: 10/10/2017

Format: Hardcover

My Rating: 5 Stars 

 

Christian author, Joyce Meyer returns following Wake Up to the Word: 365 Devotions to Inspire You Each Day "Best Devotional" Top Books of 2016 with her latest: MY TIME WITH GOD Renewed in His Presence Daily — A 365 Day personal devotional filled with a collection of encouragements, quotes, confessions, and prayers. 

Powerful, inspiring and uplifting, a great way to start your day! 

God’s word is extremely powerful and it contains the power to renew our minds and change us into the image of Christ. He wants to have a close and intimate relationship with us. He has plans for all of us. 

We all hope each day contains nothing but good and exciting things and goes according to our well-laid plans. However, this is not always the case. 

Trusting God at all times, even before we have a challenge. We all are guilty of not setting aside the time to be with God and study His Word. To simply rest in His presence and listen. To be aware of Him. Trust Him. 

When we trust God, we shut the door on fear and release peace and joy in our lives. Trust relieves stress and that helps our health and our relationships. 

In this day and age of unrest and uncertainty in our country— and in our personal lives, we are often overwhelmed and filled with stress and anxiety. In addition, we crowd our schedules –our minds and our daily lives. 

Whether you are hurting spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, or financially, He cares and wants to help. His will is for us to be in a growing intimate relationship with Him. We often do not take our cares to Him. Let Him into our lives and hearts, and give Him time. 

I love Joyce Meyer’s devotionals! In addition to the advanced reading digital copy, I also purchased the hardcover. A beautiful book. I look forward to her devotional books in October (highly recommend 2016 copy as well). 

I enjoy her beautiful and inspiring words and having a hardcover sitting on the bedside table is a daily reminder. Each day the reading ties in with the season and coincides with the specific time of the year. Easy to read and well organized for devotional; morning or evening, or both. A perfect gift for Christmas or other occasions and a great way to start the new year.

Each day offers a different topic. A scripture verse, and a note from the author. A devotional and a short prayer. Anyone can stop and spend a few short minutes to read, pray, and reflect. A way to kick-start your day. If we are too busy to seek God, then we are too busy. 

You do not have to start in January. I started from today’s date and you working my way through. I especially enjoyed the one about Living Large. He is a God of abundance. He wants us to live large, free and have a full life. The author encourages us not to be afraid to ask God for big things. Don’t settle for less than the best life that you can have. “Don’t let your own small thinking keep you trapped in a little life.” 

Another favorite, Waiting on God. I am a very impatient person. “Waiting on God is mostly an attitude of the heart.” We have to wait on God to reveal Himself to us and show us His favor. We need to pray and refuse to take action without assurance that God is leading. Often this means waiting for God’s help and being patient. Wisdom to make good choices. 

Ultimately, spending time with God regularly is the foundation of living the victorious life that Jesus died to give us. How do we use our time? Make each day count. Time is a gift. 

Over the course of three years, Joyce Meyer recorded in her journal the personal devotions and inspirations that guided her busy life. From meditations and words to renew your minds for a closer walk with Him. The courage to be honest. Pray your way through the day. 

“Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us . . . Psalm 62:8.

"Bad things can become good things when we put God in charge of all things!"

God created us and we are special to Him. He has a plan for our lives and loves us unconditionally. We all need a daily appointment with God. Discover a way of life that will try satisfy your soul. 

Highly Recommend!

A special thank you to Faith Words/Center Street and NetGalley for an early reading copy.

Good self-help book
The Joy Diet: 10 Daily Practices for a Happier Life - Martha N. Beck

A good self-help book which I could really have done with about 20 years ago when I started work. Now that i'm retired, it's less relevant but it contains a lot of very good advice about how to enjoy life more and put worries behind us. Recommended to all who feel that they're not getting the most out of life.

Way too Young
Sixth Grade Daily Geography: Simple Geography Lessons: Wonders Of The World for Kids 6Th Grade Books (Children's Mystery & Wonders Books) - Baby Professor

Good information, but this book lists as for 6th graders and it just came across as way too young. This would be good for younger students.

Daily Grind (Takeover, #4) by Anna Zabo 4.5 Star Review!
Daily Grind (Takeover) - Anna Zabo

Brian Keppler, owner of Ground N'At, the coffee shop beneath SR Anderson Consulting, doesn't have time for a relationship. His most recent girlfriend broke up with him because he'd become married to his shop, which is falling apart without his favorite barista, Justin.

As he struggles to stay afloat, the arrival of handsome British high-tech whiz Robert Ancroft becomes another complication. Rob quickly becomes a fixture at the shop with his sharp wit and easy charm, and Brian soon finds himself looking forward more and more to Rob's visits—to the point where his heart skips a beat when he walks in.  

But will Brian be able to come to terms with his previously unexplored sexual identity and find happiness now that he has a chance?

 

Review

Wow. Runs around clapping! I found a great gifted new to me writer. 

Ana Zabo creates nuanced grown characters who I adore watching fall in love and then work to have a loving relationship. 

I have so many favorite things about this book. It gets all the details just so, This is a full world with lively and complex heroes.

We get a romance that deals with what it means to grown up working class and with addicted parents and be successful, what it means to be bisexual in your late 30's through this era cultural change, small business ownership, coffee and third spaces, being a workaholic...

Brian is a workaholic. and Rob is workaholic. in recovery but with more resources than Brian. This is the core conflict in the book. Brian can be very annoying but it the true to life kind of frustration that you feel with people you love that have an addiction or point of view problem.

The love story is lush and comforting and sexy. Rob and Brian get a great deal of couple time as well well as time to make their own arcs. All the characters in this book matter and nothing is simplified. The setting is great. 

So well written! I ordered all the rest of the books in the series and can't wait for more. A great love story.
