Outstanding

This book inflated me and reminded me who I am in Jesus. I am going through the most difficult period in my entire life, and this book literally saves me from one more single day of misery. I listen to it on the way to work and on the way home and just finished it on my lunch break. I could not get enough.

Awesome! A word in due season.

The words used were precise and straight to the point.

The stories or should I say illustrations were concise, painting a vivid picture of the stories narrated, enabling the listener identify with the words spoken.

Very captivating, I did not want to turn it off.

I liked the fact that it ministered to my soul, to my situation.

It is good for every one, whether young or old, whether Christian or not.

A good tonic for the soul.

I will never get tired of listening to it. I will play it over and over again.

Thank you Pastor Joel Osteen.

Best regards.

Joel Does it again

Joel Osteen's brand of inspiration, positive and up beat messages have changed the lives of millions of people around the world and he continues to do so in this book. It's filled with positive messages about love, hope and forgiveness giving in Joel's signature down to Earth style. I loved it.

Disappointing!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone looking for a sermon.

What was most disappointing about Joel Osteen’s story?

I heard him talk about "I Am" on an Oprah show and loved the message. I hoped the book would leave me with the same enthusiasm. The book starts out with the same good information about self-talk, but then lapses into an outright sermon. I finally stopped listening a few chapters from the end because it was SO religious.

Great book for Christians. If you're not, not.

Fabulous if you are Christian and like listening to sermons. As a non Christian I found it difficult going. It's a great message but definitely written for a very specific audience with bible references throughout. Had I known beforehand that the author was a pastor I probably would have avoided it.

Resonates

My own story is that I discovered spiritual principles through the 12 steps of AA.

Later on I became a Christian, but fell away from the church because of the people who seemed to be on my case all the time -- sinners condemning sinners.

My spiritual path continued -- back to the steps, then to Buddhism, then Law of Attraction, then back to the steps, then New Thought and so on -- forever seeking and finding different ways to God, and realising at the core of it was the same need for a surrender and let go of control.

As such, I personally came to view the biblical story as allegory rather than literal -- my personal relationship with the Divine is based on love and compassion and surrender rather than anything written down thousands of years ago.

I don't call myself 'Christian' because it means so many things to so many different people, and I'm not into the politics of spirituality, just my personal relationship with God.

This is a good book -- it's woken me up to a new way of looking at Scripture, and should also resonate with other people who are seeking the abundance of the divine, without the judgement of man.

Another "great book" of Joel Osteen

Just like all his books, makes you think positively towards life.
However he does kind of recycled some of the examples or sections from his previous books.
hence the 4 stars. I wished he just wrote a brand new book with a totally different content from all his prior books and put more scriptures on it.

Very repetitive!

Very very repetitive. Could have been a quarter of the size, wouldn't recommend spending the money for the book. Probably equal value if a Google search for author found.

I love this book

I can’t even remember how many times I have listened to this book. I have really bad self esteem issues and my mental health normally takes quite a few dips. Listening to this book reminds me of the fact that I am a daughter of God and my value lies with him. He is the one who has a plan for me and I am worthy of Hos love. This book by Joel Osteen inspires me to change my mindset and believe in the power of words. Words are so much more tangible than we realise. Thank you Joel for your inspiration and encouragement. I truly value your teachings.

Amazing- definitely a keeper

Yet again another amazing book. I will continue to listen over and over. It sticks because it touches on everyday scenarios and things that you may be experiencing. This is my second book from Joel and I’m excited to see what others he has! Totally changed my mindset.

Amazing!

What an amazing, powerful & uplifting audiobook. My wife who had been struggling without a job and low on confidence, listened to this book with me. She has now been employed full time in a job she enjoys and has such a positive outlook on life. Thank u Lord for blessing Joel with a talent to share your Word to inspire others to walk daily with you.

Highly recommended

Would you listen to The Power of I Am again? Why?

Yes - it is a beautiful narration, told with heart and passion.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Power of I Am?

It's a practical guide to get us closer to the Promise of God.

Have you listened to any of Joel Osteen’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is my first Joel Osteen audio book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wanted to listen to it all at once, uninterrupted, however I found myself wanting to go back to what I had just heard as it was so good.

Any additional comments?

Very inspirational book, to listen again and to share with others. I am recommending it to friends and considering to purchase more copies to give as gifts for Chistmas.

Empowering

This is the first book by Joel I have listened to, it has connected me back to something I had lost.... faith. I have this playing while I work from home, it has changed what I focus on and think about. If you are lost or at a cross road, this book is a wonderful read.
