Psalm 27:1

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

Great Day Every Day Book Review

Navigating Life's Challenges with Promise and Purpose

SUMMARY:  Have you traded the majestic for mundane, the splendid for so-so?  Somewhere along this journey we call life, have you given up on a day here and another one there?  Have you decided divorce days, final-exam days and surgery days just don't pass muster?
     Maybe you need a new prescription.
     It's not a pill to pop or drink to down.  It won't make you lose weight or erase your wrinkles.  It won't make your boss give you a raise, find your lost luggage, or help you meet that deadline.
     This prescription does so much more.  It offers a divine purpose and promise for every day - even the tough ones.
     Tempted to toss today aside?  Why not give it a chance?  You may just find that injecting your day with a dose of God-given power and purpose makes it better than bearable.  In fact, it could be great.
     Imagine following the same prescription tomorrow.  And the next day too.  Soon your toss-away days will become treasures.  And you can have a great day.  Every day.

REVIEW:  Max Lucado hit it out of the park again with this book.  Written in short, easy-to-read chapters, this book offers you a way to make the most of every day by helping you remember that it is a day God made and we should rejoice and be glad in it.  He offers wonderful stories and illustrations to help you look at your day differently.  At the end of each chapter, there is a Daily Compass to help you accomplish your goal and change your way of thinking.  Also included in the book is a Discussion Guide and a Thirty-Day Journey to help you "Change Your Day, Change Your Life."  This is a wonderful book which I highly recommend.
