You Can Begin Again by Joyce Meyer @FaithWords Book Review

It's never too late for a new beginning. Look closely and you'll see that theme all through the Bible. Page after page, God delights in turning tragic endings into new beginnings. A childless woman conceives in her old age; a fearful, self-conscious shepherd becomes a leader of millions; and a prostitute becomes a wife and mother in the lineage of Christ. Every biblical fresh start reveals the amazing, awe-inspiring hope we have for our own new beginnings in God's plan for our lives.

In YOU CAN BEGIN AGAIN, bestselling author Joyce Meyer explores the beauty and infinite supply of God's love and grace. Through inspiring stories, Scriptural principles, and her classic practical, life-application approach, Joyce powerfully demonstrates that God isn't done with you yet.

If you're stuck in a rut, disappointed by an outcome, hurting from a wound, failing in an endeavor, struggling in a relationship, or unsure about the future. . .don't give up. Don't give up on yourself, and don't give up on the God Who loves you and offers you a new beginning today.

My Thoughts:  Every now and then everyone gets in a rut.  You know where it seems like you just can't seem to shake the negative vibes.  Meyer has a way with words in a sort of "Get over it and get up, you can do this" type of way.  I love her no holds barred approach.  She's not one to give you a "Woe is me" speech, she gives it to you straight.  

The way Meyer weaves scripture into her stories is a remarkable gift.  Each chapter left you with something to reflect on.  The chapters are divided into three sections:  New Beginnings, What's Stopping You and Today is Your Day and each serves as a reminder that it is never too late to try again and if you fail, try again.  

Overall, a great read.
