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.

Colossians 1:11-12 We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy.

My Thoughts
Paul knew that Gods power would give his people endurance and patience and joy… and this was Paul’s prayer for the followers of God…. Paul knew that God’s power would produce endurance and patience and joy…God gives us strength to do anything he ask of us… God gives us patience and joy… when we feel we can’t take another step… and can’t wait another minute all we have to do is call out to God… and if we feel we still can’t wait… or still can endure…then we need to ask God to show us the sin that is separating us for God… ask forgiveness for that sin …and relax and know that God is in control … we need to know that God will take care of us… he will give us the strength to endure… he will give us the patience we need when waiting… and we will have such great joy… such peace because God is in control… I am not always good at it… but when I do give God control I find myself free to enjoy life… to savor every moment… I hear myself laughing more… feel my face smiling…. When I give God control over my life I feel such great peace…. I try to take worry as a signal that I need to give it all back to God…. I look forward to the day when I can be like Kay, this wonderful sweet lady at my church that must feel joy and peace all the time because she knows in every fiber of her being that God will take care of her!!.. I know this more every day… it is so much more a part of me than it was just a year ago… and with each new journey I take with God I am able to give him more of me…
