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 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong fortress; the godly run to him and are safe.

My Thoughts
I pictured this when I was thinking about this verse... when kids are little, really little they run to their moms and dads for everthing..everthing...and we can help them...even if they break something they come to  you and say look I broke this... we take them up and hug them and glue the pieces back together... we can help them right off because they come to us... but as they get older they hide their problems...the run away from us...and we can't help them... even though we are more than willing... and when we do get a chance to help them some of the broken pieces are lost...and we can't glue it all back together....if we don't know about their problems we can't help them... if they were sharing everything with us like they did when they were little we could even keep them from so many of their problems...but they don't run to us they run away from us... God helps us when we ask...but he wait until we ask... and if we are always running and hiding from God we often have waited to long for him to help us...the problem is already in motion.... but if we are in constant contact with God he is there before the problem even happens... or he is there just as it begins in time to put the breaks on a problem we are having...in time to fix the problem before it spirals out of control...if we are walking daily with God he stops our actions before we have to suffer the consequences...if we wait until we are in the mist of the consequences of our actions all God can do at that point is lessen the consequences... so lets always run to God...not away from him... God wants to help us!!... all of God's choices are pure and perfect for our lives... lets keep in constant contact with God!
