Seven Things That Steal Your Joy (Review 2)
Overcoming the Obstacles to Your Happiness
By Joyce Meyer

     Joyce Meyer, Bible teacher and author of over fifty inspirational books, tackles the eternal question, “Why aren’t I happy, God?” Her knowledge of the Bible and her insight into the human heart, combine to give clear, concise, and important answers that can change your life.

    The “Joy Stealers” are presented and analyzed in chapters titled, “Works of the Flesh,” “Be Led of the Spirit,” “Religious Legalism,” “Be Free in Christ,” “Complicating Simple Issues,” “Be Uncomplicated,” “Excessive Reasoning,” “Be Confident in God,” “Ungodly Anger,” “Be Quick to Forgive,” “Jealousy and Anger,” “Be Outrageously Blessed,” “Habitual Discontentment,” “Be Content,” and “You Can Live a Life of Joy.” Each chapter outlines the choice we make every day – to live in victory of defeat. Meyer teaches straight from the Bible, but also gives examples that drive her message home. And she isn’t afraid to tell on herself. Her refreshing candor puts the reader at ease. Meyer isn’t judgmental, but she certainly “tells it like it is.”

    Do you always try to figure out the answers to your problems yourself, or have you learned how to “let go and let God?” Do you wake up in the morning ready to receive the blessings God has for you, or do you drag yourself out of bed believing that you will be met with more stress than you can handle? Is your life lived “on the level” or are you a Christian yo-yo, up and down so many times a day that you make yourself dizzy?

     Joyce Meyer is one of the greatest Bible teachers of all time. She will bridge the gap between everyday life and the divine principles of God’s Word if you will open your heart and mind. Seven Things that Steal Your Joy isn’t just a blessing, it’s a necessity if you want to live a joy-filled life. Whatever you do, don’t miss out!
