The Practice of the Presence of Jesus daily meditation HC by Joni Eareckson Tada
Discover the peace and joy that come when you dwell in the active presence of God, as the beloved author of Joni weaves contemporary insights with the timeless wisdom of seventeenth-century monk Brother Lawrence.
"Suffering has a way of heaving you beyond the shallows of life where your faith feels ankle-deep. It casts you out into the fathomless depths of God." - Joni, from the Introduction
Brother Lawrence lived through the drudgeries of monastery kitchen duty during the turbulence of 1600s France. Joni suffered a terrible accident that broke her neck, a tragedy which resulted in her turning from a life of distant faith to a life as a Christian who has had a worldwide influence through her experience of suffering with grace. In their lives, they both found the secret to peace, joy, and a close personal walk with God: being in constant conversation with the Father...every day and every hour...practicing the presence of God.
The Practice of the Presence of Jesus ushers in wisdom from these two everyday saints, more than 400 years apart, to teach and inspire you to find and experience the nearness of God in your life.
Through rich devotional content from Brother Lawrence’s The Practice of the Presence of God accompanied by original art and never-before-published insight from Joni in response to his excerpts, you’ll experience a unique blend of past and present wisdom designed to teach you how to live in the peace of the Good Shepherd.
