Joel Osteen’s book, “It’s Your Time: Finding Favor, Restoration, and Abundance in Your Life Every Day” is full of inspiration to help you find God’s blessings in your everyday life.
Written during the great recession of the early 21st century and released nearly 9 years ago, the words in Osteen’s book, “It’s Your Time: Finding Favor, Restoration, and Abundance in Your Life Every Day” are as relevant today as they were when the book first hit the shelves in 2009.
While some of the stories Osteen shared I had heard in sermons he had delivered at Lakewood Church in Houston or have read in other books by Joel, yet there were an overwhelming majority that I had never heard of before.
Every page of this book will help you find a connection with God, will encourage you to grow closer to the Lord and understand that He has blessings waiting for you beyond your imagination.
Throughout the book Osteen encourages the reader not only to develop a close relationship with God, but to get in the right relationship and search for a prosperous life – a life full of abundant blessings.
One topic in particular that Osteen touched upon spoke to me directly. Osteen encouraged readers to find a good Bible based church to attend and make sure their spiritual leader is someone who has a compassionate heart. This spoke directly to me as I recently struggled with a leader (not a spiritual leader) who I did not feel was compassionate to others. Joel’s word confirmed that my belief that a leader should be compassionate, was valid.
Before I was finished with the book, I was eager to learn how to listen to God’s voice closer that I had ever in my life.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Joel Osteen or to anyone who is struggling and needs affirmation that there is a better tomorrow waiting for them.
