Our Generous God

March 26, 2019

One of the many things I love about God? He is so generous! Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and one of the most marvelous attributes of our Savior is His generosity. The Lord has been so generous to us (giving us comfort, the blessings of friendship, health, the beautiful world around us); does He not ask us to…

Mary Jane

March 25, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. We all need encouragers in our lives and mine is Mary Jane. She’s a grandmother in her late-70s with significant cerebral palsy, but she loves joining Wheels for the World teams to go and pray and encourage those who receive wheelchairs… And she does it all at her “encouragement table.” This dear elderly saint sits…

When Everything Went Wrong

March 24, 2019

It was one of those mornings I’d rather forget. Hi I’m Joni and that morning, before I even went out the door, I contended with a leaky faucet, a lost wallet, and a dead battery on my wheelchair. Then on the way to work a button popped off my blouse. Now, these were all small things… but they really frazzled me. But you have times…

Favorite Scriptures

March 23, 2019

Hi, this is Joni Eareckson Tada, and when I have tough days, I like to grab hold of favorite scriptures in different translations of the Bible. It’s just a way of giving an old truth a fresh perspective. So, the other day, I looked up Romans chapter 5 in The Living Bible, and it says, “We can rejoice…

It’s Good to be Afflicted

March 22, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. And when it comes to me handling a life of paralysis, a Scripture that has helped me is from Psalm 119 where it says, “It is good for me that I have been afflicted for it has caused me to learn of Thy statutes, O Lord.” A scripture like that is helpful? I…

My Hope

March 21, 2019

I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and my hope of running through meadows will not come true here on earth, but it will when I go to heaven. And I don’t mind waiting. You see, having less in this life leads to true contentment because the Bible has convinced me that much, much more is coming in the next. The art of living with suffering…

Alice’s Story

March 20, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Alice has a son with autism named Alex who struggles with occasional outbursts. They had been to several churches, but there was always a problem, usually with Alex. And so, this little family never found a church home. One Sunday, Alice took her son to a new fellowship that had just been started in town. Things were going great…

God Meant It

March 19, 2019

Your problems have more purpose than you can imagine. Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and I love the story of Joseph detailed in the Bible. You know it: Joseph’s brothers threw him into a pit, and then allowed him to be sold into slavery. From there he was accused of rape, thrown in jail, and then forgotten by someone who owed him a favor. When Joseph finally gets out…

Take Heart

March 18, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and I will be the first to confess, it’s the little things that can get you down. Like, um, this battle with cancer I’m going through right now? It’s making it harder for me to feed myself with my right arm where I had the tumor removed. Suddenly something that I had taken for granted…

Write the Name of Jesus

March 17, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Eight years after my first cancer diagnosis, as you know, I’ve been diagnosed a second time. Another round of treatment could have really brought me down, but this quotation has really bolstered my spirits: it’s from Charles Spurgeon and he wrote, “I know of nothing in which I could hold Pontius Pilate as an example to you, save in this one thing; he placed…
