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.

Galatians 1:10 (Paul said) Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God… If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

My Thoughts
I can tell you from my own experience as a people pleaser that if you do what Paul did and please God not people that it will cut way back on decisions and choices that you make in your life… it really simplifies things… it may not always be the easiest way…. But choosing to please God… making your decision based on what God would want you to do or say…. Listening to the Holy Spirit inside you directing you… that narrows your choices and makes it clear what is right and what is wrong…. If we follow God’s path and do what God wants in our lives then God will make sure that the people who need to be pleased with is are…. God blesses us when we work to please him…. When we take in consideration what he wants …. Everything else that truly matters will work out…. When you start following God you get to quit being a people pleaser!… do you still need to be nice… yes… kind … yes…. Considerate… yes … but do you have to worry about pleasing everybody around you… no… you get to worry only about pleasing one … you get to only worry about pleasing God… now that is amazing change when you have spent your life trying to make every single person around you happy!!
