    This book is amazing, as you would expect from this author. The subject is just what is needed in this world right now. We are reminded that GOD, from the beginning of the fall, that as people we have "free will" She uses Ecclesiastes to bring about her point in each chapter. This book is communicating to the Christians new and those who have been Christians for a while, which is rare - usually books like these are geared to one or the other. She examines our right to make choices in our lives, and how these choices effect our lives. Ms. Meyers has a hit on her hand, but she usually does. I received a copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review.

    Have you ever felt frustrated at the end of the day, wondering what happened to all your good intentions? Meyer provides encouragement to live each day on purpose, to live the life God meant for you.

    She covers many topics, such as what we know is God's will and the importance of being willing to choose it. She reminds us that what we do here matters for eternity. She writes about the importance of wisdom, making the most of our time, how to avoid wasting time, the necessity of determination and trusting God, planning yet listening to God, the benefit of being organized, and the importance of controlling thoughts.

    Meyer provides general encouragement. She does not give any strategies nor practical steps to do what she encourages. For example, on being organized, she writes, Find a plan or system that works for you... (125) She also suggests reading other books to find specific help but does not provide a list of possible ones to choose from.

    I have found Meyer to always be encouraging and this book is no exception. We are encouraged to live our purpose with passion every day. She writes, Why not make a decision that you are going to pursue the best life you can possibly have, and then actively go for it? (156) What is missing is a strategy or practical suggestions on how to actively go for that best life.

    I recommend this book to those who have the tools for disciplines such as time management and organization but just need some encouragement to get going.

    Food for thought: How would our lives change if we made all of our decisions with a view of eternity in mind? (27)

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    "I'm sorry I would have called or visited sooner, but I've been so busy!"

    Face it, we have either heard this statement or used it ourselves. Yet when you really think about it can you honestly remember what you were doing that occupied so much of your time and kept you busy? We all start off each day with that proverbial "To Do List" and then deviate off of it at some point because we get to busy. But busy doing what? Tackling things that really don't add much to our day? Perhaps its sitting down for a moment to watch TV while you grab a quick bite to eat, and then sit back and before you know it a few hours have passed. Or you were going to clean and organize your house today, and then something popped up and we never get to it. Then that phrase about being busy once again passes our lips.

    We know that our time is a priceless and precious commodity and one we are only given so much of, so where are we wasting it? For believers, our life here is to be used in large part to prepare for our heavenly eternal home. We can use our time wisely by putting it into the will of God. We should never behave as if time is a commodity that continues to multiply in our lives. It is, in fact, just the opposite. Every moment we use is one that we never get back again, so using it wisely is important. Many people put off being in right relationship with God until another time. Usually it is because they want to do thing they know God wouldn't approve of. so they think they will choose their own time. But what if they run out of time? How much of our time are we wasting living selfishly instead of loving and serving others and trusting God to take care of us?

    "In his book, Making Today Count for Eternity, author Kent Crockett asks the reader to imagine a World War II soldier, wounded while selflessly rescuing his fellow servicemen. When he returned to the States, he was given the Medal of honor for his patriotic service. What was it that motivated him to put his life in jeopardy? When his life was at stake in battle, he wasn't thinking, I'm going to risk my life so I can receive a shiny medal. The reward was simply the nation's way of showing appreciation for his heroic actions. He risked his life to rescue his friends and defend his country. In much the same way, we don't serve God for a reward. We serve Him because we love Him and we love those around us." (pg 30).

    When talking about seizing the day and living life ' on purpose,' it is important to live with an eternal mind-set. If our actions, our attitudes, and our ambitions are carried out with an eternal mind-set rather than a temporal one, we are certain to accomplish bigger and better things for God and the growth of His Kingdom. "Using the time you have left on this earth, then it begins with a decision to seize the day every day and be an individual who lives life "on purpose" for a purpose. Every moment of our lives does not have to be regimented and fit into a plan, but, on the hand, if a good portion of our time isn't put into something with purpose and meaning, it will be wasted." (pg 38).

    I received Seize the Day by Joyce Meyer compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside for a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased and fair opinion. This latest book by Joyce Meyers helps readers understand how to prioritize their days in order to accomplish all they can not only for themselves but in giving God glory and honor. Too often it comes at the end of our lives where we look back with regrets on all the things we didn't accomplish in our life and wish we had more time, or that we had done it differently. Joyce encourages readers to "Seize the Day" and begin to make those changes today so when we get to the end, we don't have the regrets so many others do and we can enter into the heavenly gates hearing the words, "Well done, good and faithful servant." I would easily give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
