BOOK REVIEW

SEVEN THINGS THAT STEAL YOUR JOY -
                          JOYCE MEYER

The author, Joyce Meyer, wrote this book because she "has a passion to help people enjoy their lives."  She admits that she wasted many years not enjoying her life.  She said she was raised in an atmosphere that made her feel guilty.  As a result, she became a workaholic.  Do you feel this way? 

Joyce Meyer uses examples of scripture to show us how to find joy and keep it.  As Joyce points out, all through the Bible we are encouraged to be joyful.  One example is in Proverbs 17:22 it states "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine".  Joyce states that "if people had more joy, they would be sick much less often." 

Joyce continues in detail about what she believes are the seven things that steal your joy and she gives you guidance on how to replace them with God's truths and love.

One point she gives us to ponder is "Remember that God made you exactly the way He wants you to be.  Find out how to recognize the beautiful life God has planned especially for you."  When you think about it, this makes perfect sense!

This is truly an interesting book.  The author has done an excellent job of researching the Bible to point out where the word "joy" is listed so many times.  At the end of the book, she has all the scriptures on joy listed for you to read.  This book is recommended for everyone and especially for those who feel they don't have the time in life to enjoy things.  We should all learn a few things about enjoying life from Joyce Meyer!
