A Spectacle of Glory God's Light Shining through Me Every Day

By Joni Eareckson Tada with Larry Libby

Book Description

Do you ever wonder why God created you? The Bible spells it out plainly: God created you to showcase His glory—to enjoy it, display it, and demonstrate it every day to all those you encounter.

After nearly 50 years of living as a quadriplegic, and dealing with chronic pain on a daily basis, Joni has learned firsthand the importance of glorifying God through the toughest of situations. Through this devotional, Joni will help you discover how to put God’s glory on display—how to say no to complaining and say yes to daily following God down even the most difficult paths. Along the way, you will find great comfort and encouragement by focusing on the one who longs to lead and guide you every step of the way, every day.

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.

Here is my review of this wonderful devotional:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Joni Eareckson Tada and her publisher for sending me a copy of "A Spectacle of Glory" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

“A Spectacle of Glory” by Joni Eareckson Tada with Larry Libby is a beautiful and thought-provoking daily devotional.  Short, gripping anecdotes that appeal to a broad audience accompany a suggested Scripture reading and a prayer that can be used as a springboard to a more fulfilling prayer life.

I’ve only read a sampling of the material at the writing of this review, but I look forward to using this devotional in my quiet time throughout this year and for many years to come.  This is a beautiful, peaceful work that has helped me to quiet my mind and stop to consider what is truly important, thereby reducing the stress and anxiety that has become my “normal” over the last few years.
