FROM THE BACK COVER

Based on Joyce Meyer's #1 New York Times Bestseller The Confident Woman, this 365-day devotional addresses challenges women commonly face, from confidence and self-image to building strong relationships.

In her loving yet straightforward style, Joyce provides encouragement and tools to help confront and resolve problems in the areas of life that women struggle with most.

It's easy to get caught up in the ongoing demands and responsibilities of day-to-day life. But these powerful daily inspirations can help you make progress on your journey toward a confident life filled with love, laughter and God's acceptance, one day at time.

MY THOUGHTS

First of all, I want to encourage you to look at the "Open Book Widget" above, and skim through some of the great daily inspirations that are included in this book. In fact, the viewable pages have daily devotionals for January 1 through to February 3rd.

Many of the devotionals in this book have spoken directly to my heart, and it makes me respect Joyce Meyer even more than I did. She is honest and transparent about her own life and her walk with the Lord.

If we struggle with why God isn't blessing us, it may be because God has already told us the things we need to do to get our life in order and to receive the radical blessings. We really don't need to whine and complain about doing what God tells us to do because anything that He tells us to do, He gives us the ability to do. The problem may be that we just haven't done what He has told us to do.  Perhaps more than ever we need to get up and get going.  Sometimes we have to go through in obedience and just keep moving forward. (part of the devotional for December 4th)

The Confident Woman Devotional is a great little book, and I intend to read it over again, beginning on January 1st!
