Where is your life headed? How are you spending your time? Want to really change your life? For students who dont know how, or whose time seems to be absorbed by MySpace, text messaging and hanging out at the mall, best-selling author Jim Burns challenges students to create one of the most important habits of life in 50 days spending daily time with God. This exciting devotional is filled with inspiring stories that will challenge students to adopt an attitude of thankfulness, spread their love around, make the most of today, find hope in the midst of hassles, never settle for mediocrity and much more. And in 50 days, they will have read 50 Scriptures and been challenged to go deeper in their relationship with God. Burns tackles real-life issues in a readable format that will give more purpose to lives on autopilot, awaken the dreams of those who have given up and encourage all who long to get closer to the God who loves them.
