It’s Your Time
Joel Osteen is a new-to-me author, and I find him to be very inspirational and motivational. I used this book as my night-time devotional, and I just loved it. Each devotional is several pages long, and it takes approximately ten minutes to read through it. If you intend to also do the suggested scripture reading, it will take longer. If not, Joel highlights a key verse from the suggested scripture reading. At the end of each devotional, there is an accompanying prayer and thought for the day to focus or meditate on.
I borrowed this one from my local library, but I loved it so much that I bought a copy and gave it to my cousin to read because I was so impressed with it! Joel writes in such a way that I find it very easy to relate to him, and I love the book’s overall sense of positivity! I will definitely look for more books by this author.
