Proverbs 3 Trust

October 22, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and when it comes to trust, it all depends on the person, doesn’t it?  I mean, you’d have a hard time trusting someone you didn’t know, right? Ah, but trust is sure easier when you know your friend inside and out. To know someone’s character tells you whether or not he’s trustworthy. And it’s how I feel about…

Psalm 40

October 21, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and last Sunday during worship service, our church recited together Psalm 40. So, there I was saying out loud, “I proclaim your saving acts … I do not seal my lips, O Lord … I do not hide Your righteousness in my heart; I speak of Your faithfulness and Your saving help. I do not conceal Your love from anyone.” Okay, so, as I’m repeating these verses, I gotta stop and…

Consult The Lord

October 20, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. The other day I was downloading a rental agreement for a friend because she asked me to help her fill it out. With her sitting next to me at my computer, we began filling in all the blanks. You know, the address of the rental property, the stipulations about repairs, when the rent would be due, when all of a sudden, it…

Down Syndrome Lesson

October 19, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and I received a letter from Hannah who recently gave birth to an infant with Down syndrome. She was taken aback when several friends told her how sorry they were. Hannah wrote me, saying, “Joni, when you consider that 9 out of 10 mothers abort when they hear they are carrying a child with Down syndrome, joy and…

Training Yourself in Godliness

October 18, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. The Bible says, “Train yourself in godliness.” Now, many of us struggle when it comes to doing that – the hard work of saying no to bad choices, and peevish attitudes, and sinful thoughts. So, how do you move forward? How do you do the hard work of saying no to sin and yes to God’s grace? Well, here is the easy, but difficult…

Get Out Of Hell Card

October 17, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and a favorite passage for us all is, no doubt, Matthew 10:8, “Freely you have received; freely give.” Now, there’s a lot of freedom going on there, but this Bible verse is much, much more than a “get out of hell for free card.” Because there’s nothing free when it comes to what Jesus paid on…

Old Testament Sins

October 16, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and if I had lived during Old Testament times? When I was a rebellious teenager? Fooling around as I did on a  Friday night? Cheating on that chemistry exam? Or even the present, like nowadays: hogging the spotlight or not giving credit where credit is due? Keeping a record of my husband’s wrongs? Cherishing…

Before The Foundation Of The World

October 15, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and the other day I read Ephesians 1:4, and it made my jaw drop. It struck me in a fresh, new way and I was astounded to read this: “Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes.” Think about that. Before the foundation of…

A Lesson From Moses

October 14, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Moses never thought of himself as a public speaker, and so when God told him to go back to Egypt to rescue his people, Moses dug in his heels. He felt that his oratorical imperfections prevented him from responding to God’s call. But God reminded him in Exodus 4:11 of an important fact. He said…

God Hedges Me In

October 13, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. If you know Psalm 139, you know it’s filled with incredible encouragement. Psalm 139 teaches us that God’s hand is on us before we were even born; where can we go from his presence? Nowhere! He’s constantly with us. Every verse is like a blessing. Even verse 5 where it says, “[God], You hem me from behind and before, and You lay…
