"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion — to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair."~from ISAIAH 61 Bible verse for this Blog

APOLOGY to READERS who followed a SEARCH to HERE & didn't find it

On July 18, 2017, I drafted almost 3000 blog posts that I had published since 2008 when I began blogging, rather than edit each one. So if you clicked here from somewhere else and ended up with the post unavailable, I am sorry but this is why. It'd be too much work for me to go back and fix them. There's an explanation on 7/19/17 as I'm still learning.

"STRENGTH FOR EACH DAY"

by Joyce Meyer
[releases October 19, 2021]

"Strength for Each Day" is the 365-day devotional, I should have had to start this past year of 2021, and many of us probably needed this inspiration from Joyce Meyer during the previous year even more. Joyce Meyer knows exactly how and what to share in a one page devotional that is just enough to give and set your mind positively for the day. She speaks right to your life from experience and wisdom. Joyce understands God's Word and what we need to strengthen us in our daily journey. 

Each day starts with a Scripture and ends with a prayer. This makes this reader drawn in right away because these are the ingredients I look for in a devotional book or reading plan. I was able to enjoy a 3 day sample on the You Version Bible app but then I discovered on Joyce's website a 10 day Study, that you can sign up to read, which goes one step beyond the devotional, with a link at the end to "Read More" in an article that Joyce uses to expand on the topic. These whet your appetite well but having this book would be a great asset all year long. Since I started in October and read to the end then the beginning, I realized that you could open to any day and find the Strength for that day.

I do wish that the Publisher (or whoever is responsible for this) would have added a couple more special features: a simple ribbon to bookmark & move each day; and an index, in the back of the book, either of scriptures or topics; since this compact, beautifully designed book does not have a Content Page of each devotion (probably not used because it's a January - December book; however another one year book I am reading for this year does include one with the date and title of the devotion through the verses of Isaiah). It's helpful to be able to locate more easily a devotion that perhaps is one needed or addresses an issue you would like to go to for Joyce's wise and practical teaching. 

I definitely am encouraged by reading from the concise way that Joyce Meyer is able to show us to spend time with God first, learn from her life experiences and those of others, along with Biblical wisdom and insights; that on your worse day you can discover Strength from God's Word - and hers. Well worth the daily reflection offered in this book filled with gems (of Strength) as always from Joyce Meyer, to lead us through our weariness and weakness to the power of a victory with Strength to "...Make Every Day a Great Day"; and if not, change it (and our mindset to see the blessings even in the hard days). This is a wonderful gift to renew our Strength whenever we may need it and give to others when they do.

 I will refer to this book often & receive the strength Jesus is & gives!



Book Description:
 
"Discover a powerful and positive mindset each day of the year with uplifting insights and motivational Bible verses provided by #1 New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer.

Find new mercies and blessings each day when you spend time with God: reading His Word, listening, and praying for His direction. When you do, God will strengthen and enable you to handle life peacefully and wisely instead of merely trying to get through the day. He will renew your strength and empower you to bear up under trials with patience, so you can experience them with a good attitude. Maintaining a positive view in the midst of something unpleasant is the key to victory, and it enables you to enjoy the journey!

With the constant demands and pressures of daily life, it can be hard to regularly pause to be with and listen to God's voice. Joyce's practical teaching format in this 365-day devotional will encourage you to take the time for yourself so that you can receive Strength for Each Day! "
