Broken into thirty-one segments, this book defines the most powerful blessings in Scripture and encourages readers to declare one each day for a month. The declarations will affirm God's blessings in the area of health, family legacy, decisions, finances, thoughts, outlook, and overcoming obstacles.
This should be in the Category "Self Help". Indeed, it has Bible verses included in every chapter and it is not a secular book, but the techniques taught in this book are close to a self help book.
It's a good message for think positively about your life and I'm not trying to take anyone's happiness away. However, as a Christian, the glory of God and the fact that He chose me before the earth was even created to be a child of Him (Eph. 1) should be enough encouragement for me to be happy.
Joel in the sample I downloaded says to think, "I am blessed. I am strong. I am healthy. I will be happy." what happens when your strength fails you? What happens if you develop cancer? Do you simply "declare it" away?
This book places too much emphasis on self and what YOU can foot make your life better... Simply delight in the Word and the truth it brings about all of the spiritual blessings we have received through Jesus' sacrifice! That's what Christian literature is all about, my friends.
