A Spectacle of Glory by Joni Eareckson Tada - REVIEWED

About the Book:
Every Christian wonders, Exactly why did God create me?  Well, God created you for one purpose, and that is to showcase His glory – He wants you to enjoy it, display it, and demonstrate it every day to all those you encounter.  Nearly 50 years of living as a quadriplegic and dealing with chronic pain on a daily basis has taught me how to make Jesus look good in the toughest of situations.  And I love passing those lessons on in my new devotional, A Spectacle of Glory.  I wrote it to help you learn how to put God's glory on display – how to say ‘no’ to a cranky, crabby spirit and say ‘yes’ to the daily adventure of following God down the difficult path.  Yep, I should know:  wheelchairs and cancer and pain can’t stop you from living life to the fullest.  So whatever challenges you are facing, I invite you to journey alongside me as every day we spend time together in A Spectacle of Glory.  And one more thing.  Don’t ever think your life is too ordinary, your world too small, or your work too insignificant: all of it is a stage set for you to glorify God!

My Thoughts:
Few people have the insight - the perspective - that God has gifted to Joni Eareckson Tada.  I am well aware that her physical limitations don't define her, but I can't pretend that I don't think about them when I read her words.  The fact that she has such an intimate relationship with God - something I am still growing towards in my own life - is clearly evident in every word!  The devotions are meant for daily consideration, and I must say that she packs a spiritual wallop in every page.  I am particularly moved by the prayers she pens!  

This devotional is power packed, and believers of all ages and stages will benefit from this devotional.  I'm sorry to be late in posting the review - but is is NOT too late to begin your journey through 2017 with Joni!!  This is a book that can be used year after year, so pick up a copy today!
