WordPoints books are what the old-timers used to call “daybooks” — books with a short reading for each day of the year.
- Brevity. The daily readings are concise and to the point, making it easier to read one every day.
- Suggestiveness. Although brief, the essays are highly concentrated. Packing a lot of meaning into a few words, they give us something to think about throughout the day, long after we’ve finished reading the essay itself.
- Discipline. Good things come from daily discipline — we need to have some growth-related things we do every single day. Since reading is one of the most profitable exercises we can engage in, daybooks are ideal tools for personal growth.
If you haven’t tried using a daybook as a part of your everyday routine, I invite you to try one of the WordPoints Daybook Series. These books will help you stay focused on what’s most important!
It takes a certain amount of discipline to be a thankful person. For most of us, it doesn’t come naturally. We have to choose to be grateful rather than ungrateful — and we have to choose to express our gratitude. But these choices are well worth making.
Real hope is the kind that rests in God’s power, wisdom, and goodness even when, from our vantage point, we can see no desirable outcome of the problem. It is the assurance of God’s trustworthiness, no matter what happens.
The possibility that we may not have the “heart” to understand what God wishes to say is a frightening prospect. But our hearts are not predetermined or ruined beyond repair. Any of us can decide to have a heart that is true.
