Publisher's Description

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!"

As the title for this book was carefully crafted, so too, the words of truth held within its pages. Joni Eareckson Tada’s 31 Days Toward Intimacy with God, endeavors to encourage believers in the faith while revealing the person of God, and does so quite well.

Touching upon her suffering after paralysis, Joni Eareckson Tada speaks with the wisdom of a wounded healer. Her words are salve to the soul, and strength to feeble knees. She does not speak as one gilded but as one trusting in the love of a Father. She writes with rapt attention to detail of who He is, who He was, and who He always will be. Daily readings close with scripture passages and a prayer that will, if ingested and meditated upon, truly set one upon the path toward intimacy with God.

Consider this lovely passage: “when we face suffering…locked in physical pain, torn by grief, or pierced through with emotional wounds…when all we can do is fall before Him and cling to the edge of His robe, I am so humbled to know the Spirit of God prays for me with an eloquence no man or angel could match. The faintest whisper in our hearts is known to God. Even if it should be a sigh so faint that you aren’t even aware of it yourself, He has heard it. And not only heard it, but He understands it—right down to the slightest quiver registered in our innermost being.”

One who has wrestled through the darkness can illuminate the path as no other. This book was a comfort to read and held words of hope. I highly recommend it for any longing for intimacy with God. Also, for any struggling soul who needs a compassionate word of encouragement, you will find it here. – Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book Previews.com
