Break Out! Journal A Guide to Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life By Joel Osteen

Break Out! Journal
A Guide to Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life
By Joel Osteen

We were not created to just get by with average, unrewarding or unfulfilling lives. God created us to leave our marks on our generations. Every person has seeds of greatness planted within by the Creator. In his #1 New York Times bestselling book, Break Out!, Pastor Joel Osteen reveals 5 keys for living that focus on moving beyond barriers.

Now, Joel Osteen offers a practical tools and guided help for readers to break out and break free so they can believe bigger, increase their productivity, improve relationships, and accomplish their dreams. In using this journal, you will find yourself challenged daily by insightful reflection questions, motivated by a specific call to action, and inspired by a relevant Scripture verse-all of this with space in which to record thoughts and revelations.

My Thoughts:  Many tout the importance of writing things down as a means of bringing ideas into fruition.  I agree and think Osteen's latest book is a great way to use scripture to focus and step out on faith.   Break Out! Journal A Guide to Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life is a workbook and only helps if you do the work.  If you've read the book, Break OutI you will appreciate this accompanying journal more as it brings those chapters alive.

There are 5 sections of the book:

  1. Believe Bigger
  2. Consider God, Not Circumstances
  3. Pray God-sized Prayers
  4. Keep the Right Perspective
  5. Don't Settle for Good Enough

Osteen uses his storytelling skils to share biblical stories and tell stories in a way Osteen has mastered.  Overall a great read especially for those, like myself, who have purchased Osteen's book, Break Out.

Check Out This Recipe for Roasted Pineapple

Last week our local grocery store had pineapples on sale for $1.  I had to grab a few for the youngest of Los Tres Amigos.  This kid is a pineapple fanatic.  Seriously one year Hubby and I gifted him with a pineapple corer as a stocking stuffer and he still proclaims it as his "best gift ever".  Yep, a pineapple corer.  

During a recent trip to Mississippi, my cousin shared a recipe for roasted pineapple and I couldn't wait to get home and try it.  It was so simple I kept asking her to repeat it because I've seen recipes for roasted pineapple calling for brown sugar, cardamon, cinnamon and a bounty of other spices, but her recipe called for a single ingredient --> PINEAPPLE.  Yep, one pineapple and that's it.

Ingredients:  
    Pineapple

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  2. Rinse pineapple
  3. Cut off the crown of the pineapple (the green leafy top)
  4. Place pineapple on a baking sheet and bake for about an hour
  5. Allow pineapple to cool completely and then peel the rind/eyes and slice  
Enjoy!!! 

     






Jesus is Better Than You Imagined by @JonathanMerritt

Is the God who created us better than the God we've created?

After following Jesus for nearly two decades, Jonathan Merritt decides to confront the emptiness of a faith that has become dry, predictable, and rote. In a moment of desperation, he cries out for God to show up and surprise him, and over the next year, God doesn't disappoint.

In JESUS IS BETTER THAN YOU IMAGINED, Jonathan shares vulnerable, never-before-shared stories of how he learned to encounter Jesus in unexpected ways. Through a 60-hour vow of silence in a desert monastery, he experiences Jesus in silence. When a friend dies of a rare disease, he sees Jesus in tragedy. Through confronting childhood sexual abuse, Jonathan discovers Jesus in honesty. In an anti-Christian-themed bar, he finds Jesus in sacrilege. And when he's almost kidnapped in Haiti by armed bandits, he experiences Jesus in the impossible.

Though Merritt finds himself in places he never dreamed of, he doesn't lose his way. Instead, these experiences force him back to the Bible, where he repeatedly offers fresh, sometimes provocative, interpretations of familiar passages. Along the way, he throws back the covers on the sleepy faith of many Christians, urging them to search for the Holy in their midst.

Pointed and poignant by turns, Jonathan helps readers open their hearts to a mysterious God and a faith that sustains, guides, and most importantly, surprises. His fearlessly honest story invites us all to discover the messy mercy and crazy grace of a sometimes startling Savior.

My Thoughts:  Sometimes life throws us those monkey wrenches which cause us to question our faith and make us wonder how we ever made it through.  I enjoyed reading Jonathan's retrospective on some of the monkey wrenches in his life.  However, it was the constant theme that no matter where you are, He is there.  Overall, a pretty good read.
