Joni Eareckson Tada: Sharing Hope

Joni Eareckson Tada

A Psalm 39 Mask

December 31, 2020

In times of stress and frustration, it is easy to speak words that are hurtful or even destructive. Knowing God’s Word helps guard your mouth so that you can speak blessings rather than cursings. Commit to studying the Bible more deeply in 2021!

Finding Strength in Weakness
In Isaiah God tells us that he created us to make him famous, but how do suffering and weakness fit in? Throughout Scripture God deliberately uses the most unlikely characters to complete his work so that when the mission is accomplished all the glory goes to him. Hard times drive us to our knees, and through desperation we are reminded of God’s faithfulness and his strength is revealed. If we never face fear, how can we know courage? If we never had to weep, we would never know the beauty of having a friend wipe away our tears. God took a teenage girl’s poor decision and turned it into a 50-year mission of love and justice in his name and for his glory.
