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 18:14 The human spirit can endure a sick body, but who can bear a crushed spirit?

My Thoughts
Oh we have all seen this... really sick people with amazing spirits that live long past what doctors expect...that are able to do things...that keep moving in spite of their circumstances and amaze us with their ability to keep going...  then we have seen sad, lonely people with a crushed spirit that seemed healthy in body that were so totally immobile... we have seen people so crushed that the literally died of Broken Heart Syndrome... so many of these people just feel totally totally lonesome... and their crushed spirit pushed the people away that they did have in their lives...it pushes people away that see them in public when they are out getting stuff they need ... the are so withdrawn that people are afraid to speak to them. What is so sad about those people is all they needed was a close walk with God to know that they are so not alone!!... hope in their future that you can so find when you are aware of God's love... we have all seen the positive too...those people that were so glowing in God's love that they draw people to them like a magnet... not only do they never feel alone when they are all by themselves...when they are out in public people are striking up conversations with them.. smiling at just site of these people that glow.... and making them feel inspired to do more... Now if this is not a reason to pick up your Bible and start reading... if this is not a reason to lean to be in daily prayer with God.... if this verse doesn't prove the power of God's greatness and goodness to you... your spirit may already crushed... if you feel your spirit is crushed I encourage you to pick up your Bible today... talk to God...and do this again tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow... God will help you endure anything because he give your spirit strength.

wow Jeannie, this one comes really close to my heart. I know first hand what it is like to feel like you can't go on after suffering from broken heart syndrome but I also know that it is God who knows our every need and hears our every prayer. If you put your troubles in God's hands he will help you through.
