Great Day-Every Day-A Book Review

I have always been a fan of Max Lucado. His books and devotionals are to easy to read, yet they touch the deepest part of my heart. He is a very gifted writer whom I know God uses to reach people at every point in their life. In his new book "Great Day Every Day, Navigating Life's Challenges with Promise and Purpose", the mission is no different. Max has topics that covers everything from grace, and hope to peace. In each of these areas he gives examples and scriptures in such a creative way that it just opens your eyes and your heart that it makes you want to challenge yourself to think differently. I want to quote a portion from the chapter "Forgiveness For Bitter Days" "The forgiven who won’t forgive can expect a sad fate—a life full of many bad and bitter days. The “master . . . delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him” (Matthew 18:34). "Forgiveness does not mean approval. You aren’t endorsing misbehavior. You are entrusting your offender to “Him who judges righteously” (1 Peter 2:23). "Forgiveness won’t come overnight. But you can take baby steps in the direction of grace. Forgive in phases. Quit cussing the perpetrator’s name. Start praying for him. Try to understand her situation." Wow! Right? I know that hits home for all of us. And that was just a glimpse of the GREAT stuff in this quick, easy to read book. This book was very encouraging and useful for a daily devotional. It also helps you to know that you do have a purpose and there are so many promises in the Bible that God has given to us. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be able to review this book for Thomas Nelson Publishers (
