I decided to start this blog (2010) because my son, John-Robert gave me a One Year Bible for Christmas, the New Living Translation... reading it has changed my life... I post a daily Bible verse on my Facebook page every day and it has been well received... I thought that this would be a wonderful way to share part of what I read each day!... I hope that you enjoy it.

This Year 2012 I am going to do things a little different... not much...just a little. I am again reading through my One Year Bible (for the 3rd time). But I am also using "The Secret Power of Speaking God's Word" by Joyce Meyer. This book is divided by putting scriptures under different categories so they can be used to speak over our life situations. Each day I will read a category of scripture and pick a scripture in that category to write about.

Luke 18:14b For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

My Thoughts

We should always be humble.... when we become Christians and live in God's word God moves in to our bodies and takes over!!...what we do what we are able to accomplish is because of him.  We need to thank God constantly for taking us over and working through us. Our humility will win people to God... Synonyms for humble are apprehensive, bashful, content, courteous, demure, diffident, docile, fearful, gentle,  manageable, mild, modest, obliging, ordinary, polite, quiet, reserved, respectful, retiring, reverential,  self-conscious as in conscious of our actions, self-effacing, simple, soft-spoken, submissive, subservient,  tentative, timid,  unobtrusive, unpretentious... we need to show humility so that people feel welcomed by us...so that God knows that we know that he is the one working in our life. We need, as Christians to be approachable... the oppsite for humble are it's Antonyms: assertive, boasting,  conceited, egotistical, insolent, pretentious, proud, showy ... God would be so sad with  us is if we acted these ways as Christians and when we act in these ways we aren't apporachable.. people don't want to know us, to even be around us, they don't want to be like us, we are not being the Christians we claim to be... we can be wittnesses only by being humble... when Jesus comes again  we need to be acting  in a way the he can exalt us!.. act as Jesus did loving everybody, being kind to everybody, serving everybody...We need to  humble  ourselves to God and to the people around us... so that the people around us can see God lives in us.
