I Couldn't Put it Down! Feb 5, 2007
I loved this book so much that I read it through in one sitting! Although it is a daily devotional book for working women, I just could not get enough. This book provides daily encouragement for our lives. I love the daily Bible verses and power prayers the author provides!
A must have to keep at work! Aug 1, 2006
This book was given to me as a gift! I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I tried using it as a daily devotional book, but found myself unable to stop. Page after page really does reflect upon things that happen at work daily, co-workers, managers - whoever or whatever situation you come in contact with there is a daily word of encouragement to help you see past the situation. IT IS A MUST HAVE!!!
Bizarre, Avoid, Until It's Corrected Jul 14, 2006
On page 8 it claims you can that you can sense change is coming and that if you do to make this prayer, "Lord, I feel impressed that you are going to do something new in my life, I thank you for it in advance and am ready to see what it is." Okay, I'm not going to say that it's wrong to thank God for sensing things ahead of time, but not everyone feels impressed when they sense something, and not everyone is ready for whatever it is they sense. It would have made more sense to suggest a prayer like, "Lord, please prepare me in advance for tough situations, and help me to avoid sinning." And then to thank him when you notice he's done so.
On page 17 it implies everyone is saved: it says, "You are a chosen, called gifted child of God!" And strangely, implies the opposite, and in a rare way (but which I use myself) which is that God doesn't love everyone (on page 19): "He wants to love you today."
Page 21 seems to explain the oddness of this book since it shows one of the authors claims to be hearing God: "I distinctly heard his voice" it says. And what "God" supposedly told him or her isn't right, "the battle isn't yours" in reference to his or her struggles with coworkers. And it says to make this prayer, "Lord, I give all of my battles to You. Thanks for taking care of me." The writer of that page is confusing the teaching in the Bible to cast your burdens on the Lord with fighting. And that is nonsensical to say that a battle you are engaging in "isn't yours" of course it's yours if you are in it. And ironically on the next page the writer contradicts themselves by saying in the title, "Pick Your Battles ... one of the greatest lessons I've learned is to pick my battles wisely."
On page 27 it says we can do anything if we believe it, and to have a "can-do" attitude: "Lord, help me to have a can-do attitude". Yet Scripture says we are given limited talents.
On page 94 it says something incredibly ridiculous and shamefully misleading: Have you "ever been around someone who actually glows? ... He or she outshines everyone else in the office. Yeah, we all know someone who walks in absolute favor [she meaning God's favor]. Usually, those folks are the ones who rise to the top with great ease. You know why? They are filled with God's presence. ... That's why they are so attractive to others."
What the?! How wrong on many points. 1. Every Christian has God in them, 2. Not all Christians literally glow, absurd! 3. Who literally glows? I've only heard of one such case and it was some weird bio-electric phenomenon, 4. How many Christians that God loves are personality-wise, attractive to the world? About zero. 5. Many people who God hates rise to the top, being favored by him won't necessarily get you in a king's position.
Too bad this book has so many oddities, it's really beautiful.
