Joni Eareckson Tada shares, "When it comes to my quadriplegia and its aches and pains, the mornings are always the most difficult. Just facing the day can sometimes feel overwhelming, depending on the level of my hip pain. Recently, a friend gave me this little plaque—the last several weeks, its message has bolstered my heart on many a difficult morning. And I trust it'll give you a fresh focus today as well!"
“I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God's help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can't expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living. If we ever forget that we are ‘One Nation Under God,’ then we will be a nation gone under.” –President Ronald Reagan
God is more concerned with conforming me to the likeness of His Son than leaving me in my comfort zones. God is more interested in inward qualities than outward circumstances - things like refining my faith, humbling my heart, cleaning up my thought life and strengthening my character. - Joni Eareckson Tada
