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.

2 Chronicles 15:2b The Lord will stay with you as long as you stay with him! Whenever you seek him you will find him. But if you abandon him, he will abandon you.

My Thoughts
This was proven over and over again with the Israelites... when they trusted in God, when they worshiped God, when they got rid of all other idols, when they followed God's law God was with them in everything they did ... but when they abandoned God and did not ask God for his help things were always going wrong.  I have noticed this in my life... when I am doing what God ask he is with me... I can handle what ever comes up.. even if it is something hard... I have the strength to handle it and it all works out for the good in the end... but when I do not depend on God, when I try to do it all on my own, boy can I make a mess.  The wonderful thing about God is that is is always right there!!... just a prayer away... we may have to suffer the consequences for our actions ... but God will help us get through the consequences... and if we depend on him even after we have really messed things up... God will make things all right again.... if you feel like you have really messed things up... tell God... he loves it when we are totally, completely honest.. say God I have really messed this one up... I forgot to come to you when things were good... I have not been doing the things you tell me to do to keep my life in good working order.. God I know that I will still have to suffer the consequences for my actions.. but please God help me to move forward and do better... please bless my efforts... please forgive me for trying to do it myself... That is how David prayed when he messed up and God was always right there, always with David... just as he is always with us when we call on him and do what he ask us to do!... God wants us to never give up, to never lose faith, he wants us to succeed in all that we do!... all we have to do is seek after Him.

I have experienced this myself! God has ALWAYS helped me through the consequences! Whether it be a renewed attitude or a sense of peace. He has also opened new doors during these times. His grace blows me away! It's at these times when I realize just how much He loves me!
