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.

Matthew 6:34 "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

My Thoughts
I was so thinking about this verse today... and it really got me so excited!!... We have no promises of tomorrow...we have today!!... and if we live today...just today with plans to do what is right and good... tomorrow will take care of itself... Here we are ask only to worry about today...and in Philippians 4:6 it says  "Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your request to GOD. And the peace of GOD which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and mind in CHRIST JESUS."... so tomorrow will worry about itself...and today we give all our worries to God!!... I can give a days worries to God... when I start stumbling is when I try to take on the whole future!!... when I have thoughts like I can not do this forever... those things I think I can't do forever I can do for today!!!... and today and today...if only I don't get ahead of myself... when I find myself completely zapped of energy is when I am so totally worried about the future... because, after all. I always figure out a way to get through today.... so think how much easier today would be to get through if I didn't expend all my energy not only worrying about tomorrow but the next day and the next day...the rest of my life!!  We even think things like I can't be that good forever!!..but you can be that good for today!!  If we would truly lean to be anxious for nothing of today... just depend on God for today... to do our best to do our best just for today... to trust in God for today!!... to not gossip for today!!... to be kind for today!!!...we can do anything for a day!!... just think how amazing...truly amazing our lives will be if we just live today!.. I am just so excited!!!
