Every Day A Friday
Joel Osteen published a book entitled Every Day A Friday Journal: How to Be Happier 7 Days a Week. I’ve been working my way through the book, and it really has helped me to be more insightful. I love Osteen’s many scriptures, inspirational quotes, stories, prayers, and points for reflection.
Osteen writes many passages he calls “Key Truth”. In one he states, “God will always bring the right people into your life, but you have to let the wrong people walk away. The right people will never show up if you don’t clear out the wrong.” Think about that passage for a while and see how or if it fits into your life. Most of us have had people come and go in our lives. Sometimes the parting might be painful. At other times, the separation may bring relief. Either way, always focus on God and his word. He will bring what is right and good into your life. Keep that thought in your mind and say it aloud when praying alone. Pray daily to God and meditate on his word. He will hear you.
Osteen goes on to remind us what Steve Jobs said. “Time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” Osteen reminds everyone to “Follow your heart and your intuition”. Seek and find truth in your life. Everyday is the only day you are really given, and I believe God wants us to make the most of it. Climb for the top, but don’t forget to stop and help others alone the way.
Keep a journal, and see how to can make every day count. Write down your thoughts either in the morning or prior to going to bed. You may be amazed at what comes to you. Or, purchase Osteen’s book. He provides places to journal in each chapter.
