Even though he is a TV pastor, which I honestly want to barf at most of them, he has really grown on me as a pastor, a person, and a spiritual guider. Most of them annoy the crap out of me because it just seems wrong or off. Like they are trying to make money bringing in a big crowd like that. I know it's not the case for him so much but I have seen some that have. So, I guess a bad experience can rub off on impressions. I know, not super proud of that.
Either way, reading any book with an open heart is necessity and key. So I gave this one a go.
No one is perfect and I love that his devotional for the year is about focusing inwardly towards oneself and focusing on the "I Am".
Of course, not in the narcissistic kind of way but in a way that we stop questioning ourselves to the depth and level that we do. I know I question myself a lot. Or being about to realise that we can have say in how we have our outlook on life.
A lot of the times, myself included (and less so by the day), we base our worth on those around us and what they think, what we have and what we can show for. But really, that is a one way ticket to loneliness and heartbreak. I know.
So it was ultimately time to change for something... for me, for my family, for my community, for the world. We are all one grain of sand, but we are also all each a diamond in the rough.
Do we choose to say:
" I am a sucky person"
do we choose to say:
"I am capable of great things."
There is a stark difference saying those things to ourselves and outwardly. Whether we do it every so often, daily, or in secret to ourselves. I am, myself, guilty of this sometimes. So I am glad I was drawn to pick this devotional to review.
Self love is something that we really need to do and allow ourselves to be loved more not less. Allow ourselves to be humbled when we need to be and allow ourselves to be called out when we need to be.
The balance isn't there frankly for many of us. So this is bringing us back a little bit to that balance. Now, if you already do this, great! Maybe you need a different devotional to work on another area of your life. But if you are like me and struggle with more self love, than allow yourself to read this.
Uber religious is not part of my vocabulary... yet, this book is so not that! Which I love. It has changed my view completely of Osteen. There is promise yet.
A lot of this devotion book is learning how to choose our words and how we speak but also how we see ourselves. Those are very powerful key things we all need in our lives.
So... I will be giving away a copy of this book here on my blog!
Because we all need more self love!
I give this book ☃☃☃☃☃ out of five!
Enter to win and share!
