A Spectacle of Glory by Joni Eareckson Tada

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.

Meet the Author:

Joni Eareckson Tada is the founder of Joni and Friends, an organization accelerating Christian outreach in the disability community that numbers 610 million people worldwide. This organization operates out of the new Joni and Friends International Disability Center located in Agoura Hills, California. Joni is not only an international disability advocate but an artist and the author of numerous bestselling books, including Pearls of Great Price, Diamonds in the Dust, More Precious Than Silver, the Platinum award-winning Joni, Heaven: Your Real Home, When God Weeps, and The God I Love.

My Take:
This beautiful pocket/purse size hardback devotional is inspirational. It includes a devotional for every day of the year. The devotionals are short and easy to read, yet powerful and encouraging. Each one includes a Scripture to read, which is something I really like about this devotional, and ends with a prayer. A lot of books only include one verse, but this one has an actual passage you read before reading the author's writings. 
Joni is experienced with suffering, disability and trusting God. You can sense that through her words. She offers hope, inspiration, and definitely takes us back to the One who can help us in any situation, by bringing honor and glory to HIM.
I am looking forward to gathering glimpses of my Lord in the pages of this book this year.
I would definitely recommend it.
