Thank you, God, for your delight in me. Let me move from doubt to belief, trusting in your extravagant grace. Let me be your love, grace, and delight for others today. Amen.

I can trust God’s extravagant love.

Today’s Picture

This is a picture of God’s extravagant grace, taken at Lake Junaluska, North Carolina. God lives in the world through abundance, joy, humor, and delight. When I open my eyes, I glimpse God’s extravagance everywhere I go.

A Guide to Prayer for All Who Seek God
Norman Shawchuck and Rueben P. Job

This third Guide to Prayer by Norman Shawchuck and Rueben Job opens up the spiritual journey to “All Who Seek God.” It’s my favorite of the Guides to Prayer, partly because of its accessibility and partly because the voices of Job and Shawchuck speak more clearly through their written contributions.  More about the book.
