His books have been in my collection of favorites for years. I ordered this one months ago and have been reading a chapter once a week as an extra devotional. He uses scripture to parallel life experiences and balances it out with encouragement for all sorts of perils in this walk of faith we all take daily. This book is a pick me up when I have had a troubling day. Its a dash of salt when I have missed my communion with God on rushed days. You don't just sit down at an empty table with this book. WWW brings you to the table where he seats you next to Christ and you are in absolute communion with the Lord Most high. Great literature for anyone regardless of where their walk is with Christ.

Over the years since I received a copy of this book in 1983 as I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, I have given away numerous copies because I felt the other person needed it. I
t is the only book I know that encourages without "happy get all better" stuff. Some diseases or situations really cannot be expected to have a happy ending, but that is when encouragement is most needed. If I could give it 10 stars--I would.

When you begin to read this book, you will not be able to put it down. The Holy Spirit has spoken to me so cleary through His word, and this book. I have personally given away appoximately 30 of these books to family and friends, and have heard of God's faithfulness to each of them through this book. Weirsbe has a way of sharing, but ALWAYS references the Bible.
You will love this book. Great encouragement for whatever your need, situation, dilema.
I keep 10 of these books at home, always ready to give out.

This is one of three of Wiersbe's 30 day devotional books - the other's are "Turning Mountains Into Molehills" and "God Isn't In a Hurry." Of the three this book is the most encouraging. If you are depressed, discouraged, or downtrodden, or even feeling up, this book will pick you up even more. All the lessons are either expositions of one passage of Scripture or topical teachings that are designed to help you be optimistic because God is Sovereign and good and has a purpose for every aspect of our lives to shape our character and skills so that we can be used more and more for His grand ultimate purpose. I would encourage anyone reading this to buy several copies because it makes a great gift - especially for those who are going through tough times. I have purchased at least twenty copies over the years and given them away and they have been very helpful to those who have read and taken to heart it's Biblical wisdom and encouragement.

Orginal copyrighted in 1980, this book is now in its 28th printing. Contains 30 different messages of encouragment that were orginally used on a late night radio program from Moody Church, Chicago.
I'm going to use this as a resource for our church's 18 support groups.

This is a great little book. Though it's small, it's packed with amazing insight. I underlined much of the book, and found myself saying, yes, quite often. I feel this is one of those books everyone should read, no matter where you're at in your walk with Christ. I purchased five more, with intent to share them with others that I know would benefit from the messages this great little book provides.

I had just been diagnosed with cancer when I ordered and read this book. W. Wiersbe is one of my favorite authors and makes the difficult easy to understand and comprehend. This book helped me get through the rough times during treatment and surgery. It was also extremely helpful for my husband, the caregiver. I'm now 3 months "clear" of cancer and praising God! I have shared this book with others and will continue to share this information with anyone who is in difficult circumstances. It's an anchor!
