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.

Acts 21:13 But Paul said, " Why all this weeping? you are breaking my heart! I am ready not only to be jailed at Jerusalem but even to die for the sake of the Lord Jesus."

My Thoughts
Paul was jailed... Paul gave up his freedom to live for God... and was willing to give up his life... We need to be more like Paul... we need to give up a few thing to make more time for God... what could you give up each day that would not really change your life to give it up??... I could give up some TV watching for sure... there is something you do each day that takes up time that you could give up... maybe 30 minutes less of sleep... a few less conversations on the phone... not as many rounds of golf... there is something that you could give up so that you could spend more time with God... I promise that what you give up, so that you can spend time will God, will not even compare to what you get back in return.... Start with 5 minutes... just 5 minutes and if that 5 minutes a day changes you add 5 more minutes... How can we expect God t hear our request  if we don't take time for him each day...I challenge you to take just 5 minutes.. 5 minutes for God today... and tomorrow... and tomorrow and tomorrow.. see if it changes  you!!
