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.

Proverbs 16:32 Better to be patient than powerful; better to have self control than to conquer a city.

My Thoughts
Wow... now this is a powerful verse!  Great me through out history, powerful men... great warriors... that are remembered in history book, in the Bible.  But we do more than that be being patient and having self control.  Now I can hear you saying as you read this "I am just not a patient person" and I will agree patients comes easier to some than others, but patients is a choice, self control is a choice.  It is called self control because you yourself can choose to control how you behave and act.  So today when you are feeling impatient on the inside, remember it is better than power to show patients with others and yourself on the outside... Take control of yourself and act in a way that would please God.
