A Daily Compass for Finding Purpose, Claiming Christ’s Promises, and Fulfilling your Potential
Max Lucado continues to inspire, encourage, and challenge readers with his unique gift for adapting Biblical stories into contemporary, relevant, insight with meaningful applications. “Great Day Every Day – Navigating Life’s Challenges with Promise and Purpose” includes a “Daily Compass” to help the reader start each day right. Early in my reading I captured Max’s theme including the three concepts introduced throughout the pages of the book: Saturating my day in Jesus’ grace, entrusting my day to His oversight, and accepting His direction.
The accompanying discussion guide provides the reader with thought provoking questions designed for further consideration, contemplation, or meditation. These questions can also be adapted for use with a small group to stimulate discussion and interaction among group members.
Another feature found in this edition of the book (published earlier as “Every Day Deserves a Chance) is the “Day Changer” thirty day journey. Each “day changer” reflection helps the reader identify and record a specific area of focus, consideration, or action for the day.
Lucado’s writing is Christ centered, straightforward, simple, yet profound. A rich experience in fulfilling your potential, claiming Christ’s promise, and living out His purpose.
