The alarm clock rings in a new day and a chance to rejoice in it. After all: "This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it."
But what about those days when the traffic snarls, airports close, and friends forget? Is there any hope for the days riddled with the hang-ups and bang-ups of life?
In Great Day Every Day Max Lucado unpacks Jesus' blueprint for dealing with such days: Saturate your day in Jesus' grace. Entrust your day to His oversight. Accept His direction. It's the only prescription to fill your day with God-given purpose.
When you find the divine promise of each day, you can face whatever it brings. Speed bumps and speeding tickets won’t derail you. Hiccups and hard times don’t have to ruin your day. In fact those days can become great days. Whatever you face, you can have a great day every day.

However privileged one's life might be, it will also be filled with moments of frustration and aggravation, and Lucado attempts to provide a Christian blueprint for happily dealing with an anxious world filled with "War. A bombed base. Heart attacks. Car wrecks. Urban sprawl," and an assorted array of diseases and worries. Narrator Wayne Shepherd reads with a calm, steady, and affectless voice that is far too staid for a tract meant to uplift and inspire optimism. Lucado often describes what he feels his readers shouldn't do e.g., resigning one's life to constant anxiety because (he sarcastically writes) "Worry brings joy. Worry puts the blue in the sky." But Shepherd reads these passages with the same calm monotony as passages that are meant to inspire. Consequently, listeners may find it difficult to determine, based on Shepherd's tone, whether sentences like "Friday, calculate the number of ways to die on an airplane" are meant ironically or earnestly. It's the former, for the record. A Thomas Nelson hardcover.
