Synopsis: As believers, we were made for intimacy with God. The Lord Jesus gave His life for us so that we might have intimacy with Him. God knows that the more we get to know Him, the more we will know of life—the life we were created to experience. By focusing our thoughts on Him, we will grasp more fully His goodness and be all the better for it. We’ll come to see how much we really do depend on Him for everything—from salvation, to strength for each new day, to the next breath we draw into our lungs.
To know God intimately,
trust in Him faithfully,
and depend on Him consistently.
You want this immediately. So you must seek Him passionately!
Journey now along the pathway following the sweet, enticing fragrance of heaven. But don’t expect a walk in the park. In every life there are times when the road narrows and the skies grow dark. Seasons of suffering are as certain as the glorious destination before you. Yet you are called to go, and the Source of your spirit’s restoration promises to never leave your side.
Daily inspiration from Joni Eareckson Tada gently guides your steps to a closer, more intimate walk with your Savior. And as you travel, new life—His life!—is freely yours as a gift.
Story Behind the Book
“In the thirty-seven years I’ve lived as a quadriplegic, I have been forced time and again into the arms of Jesus. Sometimes my paralysis has pushed me down the road to Calvary, like a sheepdog snapping at my heels. Sometimes suffering is like jackhammer, breaking apart my rocks of resistance and pride. Most often, my wheelchair has dumped me at the foot of the cross, and I have rested there by the overwhelming conviction that I have nowhere else to turn. But that’s okay. In fact, it’s a blessing. It’s all a bruising-of-a-blessing. Because near the cross, in the arms of Jesus, I have discovered deep, sweet, peaceable intimacy with the Savior. It’s an intimacy worth sharing!”
