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.

Psalm 4:4 Don't sin by letting anger control you.  Think about it overnight and remain silent. 

My Thoughts
This verse doens't say stew on your anger overnight and get more and more angry....it says think about it over night... and Philippians 4:7 says Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus... your mind is where your thoughts are... we are to guard our thoughts  always.. but expecially when we are angry... listen to what the holy spirit tells us ... if we guard our thougths we don't belive the lies the devil tells us... we ask God how to think about our anger, what to do about what we are angry about... when you sit and listen to the thoughts the devil puts in your head you get angerier and angerier... when you listen to what God tells you to do  you began to feel more at peace about your decison about how to handle what you have been upset about... sometimes you wake up and arn't even angry anymore... somtimes you wake up with a resolve and a peace about how to handle the situation that made you angry in the first place.. remember when you are letting anger control you.. the devil is happy... you are believing the lies he puts in your head... when you feel peace about a stiuation you are letting the Holy Spirit guide you and God is pleased! Our choice should always be to please God.
