With more than 200,000 copies sold, Diamonds in the Dust has become a devotional favorite. Joni shows us precious jewels of biblical truth that lie scattered amidst the gravel of life’s dusty road.“The book you hold in your hands is my treasure trove of diamond chips I’ve collected over the years,” says Joni. “I’ve carefully selected favorite gems, ones I’ve often held to the light, turned this way and that to admire their beauty, diamonds that have made me rich in faith and wealthy in hope.”These 366 meditations uncover a wealth of promise, of eternal truths waiting to transform the events of our lives into facets that catch and reflect God’s glory. Written from the perspective of a woman who traverses life in a wheelchair, this book wipes away the surface grit of suffering and circumstances to reveal the radiant hope that each of us can claim.Diamonds in the Dust takes theology and gives it flesh, breath, and emotion. With eloquence, Joni draws from her own trials and triumphs to enrich us all with the wisdom of Scripture. But she’s not the only one whose everyday life holds such potential. “Look down at your feet,” Joni writes. “The path sparkles. God has placed diamonds in the dust of your road too!”

Top Highlights

“That means praying for the pimp who exploits wayward teenagers on the street. It means interceding for the homosexuals who march against city hall for sexual civil rights. It means campaigning in prayer for the pornography mongers. It could mean connecting with the director of a nearby abortion clinic, or contacting a government leader who’s on the ‘take,’ and letting them know you care about their spiritual needs. It could mean taking a right-to-die advocate out to lunch to discuss life worth living.” (source)

“But grace upon grace?! I’m floored. What can I say? His grace upon grace not only lets me live, His grace lets me serve, it lets me worship, it lets me take His name as my own, it called me by name, it grants me fullness of life as John says.” (source)

“That’s a mistake. Jeremiah learned this lesson when the Lord said to him, ‘Return…I will cure you.’ God pointed to Himself as the cure. In the Lord’s eyes, the truly obedient person is the one who truly longs to know Him.” (source)

“Lord, You are the one in whom I delight. You are the one in whose love I relish. I am captivated with Your beauty, and I find pleasure in adoring You and worshiping You. May my praise be lovely in Your sight!” (source)

“Fresh out of the hospital, my first few weeks at home in a wheelchair were terribly depressing. I knew that the Bible probably contained answers to my problems, but I had no idea where to look.” (source)
