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.

Psalms 94:19 "When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul"

My Thoughts
God does not want us to be anxious or to worry.... he wants us to find peace in him...the more time we spend with God the less anxious we will be...that is not in any way to say as Christians we will never be anxious... or that if we are anxious we don't know God... but the more time we take with God the better we will fell.  I have suffered anxiety since I was a small child...and at times in my life my anxiety has been off the chart!!... My grandmother had it, my mom has it... I have it.... now I have learned when I am anxious that god wants to console me... so I have learned to tell God this "God I have no idea what is bothering me but I give it to you, you can sort it all out." ...then I start praising God and I start thanking God ...I just list the things that I am thankful for until I feel peace come over me...I find that when I focus on what God has given me my anxiety goes away... one of the reasons it goes away, I believe, is because when I am busy praising and thanking God the evil spirits can dwell in my spirit because God is stronger than they are... so next time you feel anxious... remember this verse....and give your anxiety to God...then list all the things you are thankful for... I try to list 100.
