In Every Day A Friday, Joel Osteen has seen that most people become happy and joyful on Fridays. But throughout the week we are counting down the days to happiness on Friday. The book is based off a study that has found that happiness increased 10 percent more on Fridays. We tend to be waiting to be happy for the weekend and we are missing out on the rest of the days of the week. We are supposed to enjoy our lives every single day. A significant key we must realize is we don't have to give away our power to the economy, rude bosses or customers, traffic, and any other circumstances that are beyond our control. We must change our perceptive and focus on the positive and not dwell on the negative. A kind encouraging word can break down the wall barriers around our heart. Osteen believes in reaching out to the hurting and loving them into they are whole again! A kind word can heal souls!The book is divided into seven important parts:-Don't Give Away Your Power-Know What to Ignore-Live Without Crutches-Travel Light-Laugh Often-Be a Dream Releaser-Celebrate YourselfMy favorite stories that changed my life were the story about trying to drive a SUV at the Indianapolis race track. You have to run the race the way God created you to be! The second story that spoke to me was a kid named Joey that was trying to copy everyone else and all he had to be was stop and be himself. I won't post the stories because they are so good you need to read them for yourself. They will help you realize that God loves you just the way you are. He chose you!One of my favorite quotes is:"Our churches should not be museums to display perfect people. They should be hospitals to help the hurting and the lonely" (186).
