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.

“A Spectacle of Glory: God’s Light Shining Through Me Every Day” by Joni Eareckson Tada is a daily devotional that will help you glorify God every day. Joni’s life hasn’t been easy, living 50 years as a quadriplegic, and dealing with chronic pain, Joni has learned the importance of glorifying God through the good times and the bad. This devotional will help you discover God’s love and greatness in your life and how to showcase His glory to everyone around out.
“A Spectacle of Glory: God’s Light Shining Through Me Every Day” is a charming daily devotional filled with uplifting stories that cover many of the situations that make up life on earth. Joni’s love and faith in God shine through each devotion. It’s a bit like reading her personal diary. As I read through many of the devotions there were times that I felt like she was speaking directly to me, offering encouragement and insight into God’s word while she shares many of her personal experiences.
Each devotion is set up much the same way. It starts with the Date, followed by a scripture reference. I would recommend keeping your Bible handy so that you can look up the referenced scripture. Then Joni’s thoughts. She shares words of thanks and praise to God, questions and word of acceptance and words of Love to our heavenly Father.
At the bottom of each page is a prayer. This is a great addition for any believer in Christ. Sometimes starting a prayer is the hardest part. When you can’t find the words, this helps you start and you will find that the words just keep coming.
“A Spectacle of Glory: God’s Light Shining Through Me Every Day” is a great daily devotional that will help you showcase God’s glory every day in every way.
