A Mothers Request

By Joni and Friends | May 15, 2021

“Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him. ‘Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.’ ‘You don’t know what you are asking,’ Jesus said to them. ‘Can…

Beyond Our Limitations

By Joni and Friends | May 15, 2021

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. It seems like every day there’s a different reason for thinking of how great Jesus is! And this morning I read Hebrews 4, which says the Lord himself shared fully in all our weaknesses. Oh, that blows me away. To think that we have a Savior who understands exactly how we feel in our limitations. That’s good news, especially to me in this…

Yardsticks

By Joni and Friends | May 14, 2021

“Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following. When Peter saw him, he asked, ‘Lord, what about him?’ Jesus answered, ‘If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.’”       John 21:20-22 Christians know that it’s wrong to compare, yet our culture…

Believe His Promises

By Joni and Friends | May 14, 2021

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. How long will you wait for a promise to be fulfilled before you stop believing? Weeks? Months? Years? Well, try centuries! Because if you leaf through the pages of the Bible, you will find that God’s people hung onto the promise of a Deliverer for a long, long time. God promised Abraham and his descendants that one day a Messiah would come. And although a lot of Abraham’s descendants stopped believing,…

The Book of Remembrance

By Joni and Friends | May 14, 2021

Does heaven take note of every thought and word that honors Jesus? Well, the Lord really, really, really notices it when you think about him. I mean, think of all the times you’ve been enthralled at a stunning sunset and you’ve whispered, “Ah, Jesus, you’re so awesome! That’s beautiful.” And you said it without thinking. Or how about when a glorious hymn leaves you quietly breathless…

Give a Lift

By Joni and Friends | May 13, 2021

Love sure does provide a lift. Yes, spiritually, but even physically. Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and when my husband Ken and I were in the People’s Republic of China to help deliver wheelchairs, we were able to visit the Great Wall of China. It’s one of the ancient wonders of the world stretching over 10,000 kilometers. When we arrived at the Great Wall, I sat at the base of this huge monolith snaking…

Be Personal

By Joni and Friends | May 13, 2021

“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”  –Isaiah 41:10 God always uses such intimate language when he relates to us. He paints warm images of sheltering us under…

By Joni and Friends | May 13, 2021

Like most young women, Stephanie Magness wanted to be like everyone else; she wanted to fit in with her classmates and have fun at school. But in seventh grade when she learned she had scoliosis, Stephanie began an unexpected decade-long journey of misdiagnosis. At age 22 genetic testing confirmed that her symptoms were caused by…

The Last Mile

By Joni and Friends | May 12, 2021

Remember that long trip coming home? That last mile?   Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and I recall times when, after a tiring trip on the road, we’d leave the airport, head up the freeway, get off that Topanga exit, drive past Gelson’s Market, turn up our street, and then? We’d pull into the driveway. The porch light was always on, the house was always lit, and with a beep of our horn, our neighbor Carolyn…
