100 Days of Joy and Strength: A Devotional Journal
The help of heaven has been constantly available in my day-to-day juggling act as a woman, a wife, a mom, a working mom, and most importantly, as someone who longs to point people to God in whatever I do or say. Yet as a doer and a dreamer with lots of plans, I haven’t always taken time to access those resources. The older I get, though, the easier it is for me to admit: I need all the joy and strength God will give me! Especially His joy and strength!
For 100 days, let’s take this journey as sisters, praying for each other and exploring the various ways the Lord can be both our joy and our strength. Whether we’re having an ocean-breezy day, a lacking-courage day, a messy-house day, or an I’m-overwhelmed-and-can’t-do-another-thing kinda day, God can remain the center and the focus of it all. And we and those we love will be better for it.
Join Candace for a boost of joy & strength for 100 days as you turn your heart & mind toward the God of love & hope.
Enjoy a short heartfelt and personal devotion for daily inspiration.
"Before you commit to today’s “places to be” and “things to do,” ask God what He has prepared for you. After all, He made the day with you in mind. You can trust what He has awaiting you." –Candace Cameron Bure
Each day reveals God's Promise for you with space for journaling and the reflections of your heart.
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. JAMES 1:17 NASB
Dedicate your heart and your day to God through 100 guided prayers
"I pray His strength, and joy, and abiding peace over you as you live for Him. And may He, the God of hope, “fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Romans 15:13)." –Candace Cameron Bure
Sample Devotional Excerpt
Turn Up the Light
No spiritual transformation in history compares to the apostle Paul’s. Within only three years of his conversion, he went from persecuting Christians to their death, to debating religious teachers and astonishing listeners with his fearless preaching of Jesus as the Son of God.
He could do these things because he immersed himself in the teaching of Christ as a new believer. “I received my message from no human source,” he explained later. “I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ” (Galatians 1:12 NLT).
Like us, Paul didn’t have the advantage of knowing Jesus while he walked the earth; he had what we have: the Scriptures, the Holy Spirit, and a relationship with Christ. That was his seminary, so to speak. Through that training, God equipped Paul to instruct pastors, plant churches, and evangelize the unsaved all over the ancient world—and the ripple effect of his ministry reaches to us today.
His experience excites me so much! What might God do through us as we invest time in Bible reading and prayer?
Clearly, God doesn’t care how long we’ve been a Christian. He doesn’t disqualify us because we’re in the early days of our faith. He can teach us, purpose us, use us from the start of our salvation—or at any point thereafter.
His Word makes the difference, illuminating who Jesus is and God’s incredible plans for us. Nothing else turns up the light so quickly.
What a gift Your Word is! Knowing that the Holy Spirit will take Your teachings and enlighten my soul every time I open up my Bible is a game changer.
