#1 New York Times bestselling author Joyce Meyer teaches readers how to transform their lives by tapping into the power of hope. One of the most powerful forces in the universe is hope--the happy and confident anticipation that something good is going to happen. Regardless of where one is in life, it is impossible to live successfully and to the fullest without hope. With GET YOUR HOPES UP! Joyce will help readers achieve a lasting sense of hope, built on their faith in God. Hope is only as strong as its source. This book will help readers avoid misplacing their trust in unreliable things, and help them ground their hope steadfastly in God for limitless joy and possibilities for their lives. As Joyce explains, "Without hope in God, there isn't much you can do, but with Hope in God, there isn't much you can't do."
My take on this book:
Get Your Hopes Up will have you expecting something good to happen everyday, and guess what? It can happen! How you ask, it's about faith and knowing that God has something good in store for you if only you have the faith to hope! Well it's easy to wonder how, when life might have you down or discouraged but that's where Joyce Meyer's new book plays a role, she is like the girlfriend that everyone needs she uplifts and encourages, and basically becomes a cheerleader as she guides you on your path to hoping for all that God wants you to have in your life! Ms. Meyer's no nonsense way of teaching is easy to relate to and understand. It's like sitting down with an old friend as she imparts what God has placed on her heart to share with her readers. There are so many important gems of wisdom implanted into the pages of "'Get Your Hopes Up" but the one thing that is always a constant with Ms. Meyer is the fact that she backs up her teaching with scriptures from the Bible, and this is something that readers will find in each of the seventeen chapters of this book! A wonderful book that would make an excellent group study, but honestly it's a book for anyone needing a spiritual boost. It really isn't wrong to hope for more, after all God wants the best for his children!
