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.

Joshua 1:8  "Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful."

My Thoughts
We are so, so busy in today's world...just go, go, go... so often we feel like we don't have time to read the Bible, God's Holy Word... and we get busier and feel like we have less time... when fact is if we take time to study God's word... he will bless the time left over in our days!!... if we study God's word... and talk to God wisdom grows in our soul... and the decisions we make are so much less of a struggle!!... if we take time for God he will make sure the time we need is there... its says clearly here in God's word that if we learn God's work and think of it day and night we will be prosperous and successful... successful doesn't have to mean a great person that accomplishes many things, like Donald Trump... it can mean being successful in getting kids where they need to be, getting dinner on the table, getting the laundry done... sometimes we need energy to be successful in our day... God will give us that energy if we take time for Him!... sometimes we need all the red lights to be green so we can get somewhere on time.. if we take time to read God's word and know it in our heart that morning before we leave the house... we will fall in perfect timing with the lights.... God knows what your success needs to be... and God will help you be your kind of successful if you take time to know God and what God's word says... and to live what God's word says... if you want to be a success at being a mom or dad, read God's word, if you want to be a successful coach, read God's word, if you want to be a successful business person, read God's word, anything that you want to be successful at that is in accordance with God's word you can be successful at if only you take time for God and for all that He has for you!!  If you know God's will in your life, you WILL be successful.
