New Wheelchairs 

May 24, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and the other day I went down to see the Wheels for the World team (I mean, these friends do the best job of administrating the collection and delivery of wheelchairs overseas, and organizing teams and everything). While I was in their department, they showed me this wonderful little pediatric wheelchair that we are designing.…

Studying God’s Word

May 23, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. After my diving accident, I fell into depression. I was a Christian, but I wasn’t a student of God’s Word. Oh, I knew the Bible had answers, but I did not know where to look. That’s when a friend offered to teach me how to study the Bible. And within two months, I was making word lists, researching themes, doing comparisons and cross–referencing texts. I learned how to use a…

Spiritual Blessings

May 22, 2019

“The sea of God’s mercies should swallow up all our little afflictions.”  Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada, and that quote is from Martin Luther. It’s like if you have a pail of water and throw it on the floor, it makes a great show, but if you throw it into the sea, there is no sign of it. The same is true with our…

Prayer Meeting

May 21, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada.  Often during a prayer meeting, I hear people request finances, healing; prayer for a job or travel safety, or solutions to problems. It’s natural to pray that way. But a closer look at God’s Word shows a more divine way. Psalm 119 says that God’s Word renews our life. When we employ the Word of God in our prayers, our requests…

Power of the Resurrection

May 20, 2019

Is it possible that one event can inspire both fear and joy? Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and the resurrection does that. In one sense, it inspires great joy. But in another sense, it can inspire a little fear. Jesus said in John chapter 5, “…a time is coming when all … who have done what is good will rise from their…

Don Needham

May 19, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Long ago when I was speaking at a church in Colorado Springs, I shared about Wheels for the World and how prisoners restore the wheelchairs that we collect across the country. A church elder sittin’ in the pew got a bright idea. Since he worked for the state prison system, he offered to help…

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and I enjoy a true esprit de’ corps with a couple friends who suffer and suffer well. One lives in intractable pain, another is a long-time wheelchair user, and the others are virtually bed-ridden. Why is our fellowship so close and intimate? Well, nothing knits the souls of people together like partnership in danger, or…

Plugged In

May 17, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. And often nowadays, we “abide in Jesus” as though we were charging our iPads. We sit down for our quiet time and wonder how long we are required to plug into God before we get our spiritual charge. But life in Christ is not going to conferences and coming home from a week-end trip feeling a surge of divine power. No, we abide in Christ 100 percent…

The Resurrection

May 16, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and the best part of the story of Jesus, you gotta agree, is the resurrection. Because up until the resurrection, everything’s hard; for Jesus, there was misunderstanding and betrayal; disappointments and pain and suffering. So much rejection and doubt. People just didn’t understand Him; they didn’t get it, even when He was impaled on a cross. No one understood the story of Jesus until…

John the Baptist

May 15, 2019

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and I know how difficult it is to watch someone die before their time. Perhaps a young child, or someone in his prime, a treasured loved-one, or a gifted friend who is valuable in the Kingdom. It’s why people were stymied when Jesus did nothing to save his cousin, John the Baptist. I mean Jesus…
