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.

Habakkuk 2:14 For as the waters fill the sea the earth will be filled with an awareness of the glory of the Lord.

My Thoughts
We had a guest pastor not too long ago that talked about the earth being in sink with God's will so to speak... I believe this to be true... have you ever seen beautiful land on a lush hillside and the people in the tiny village starving?... just last night we watched where this village had people dyeing by the thousand for lack of clean drinking water, yet the rural city was surrounded by water... there are countries where there a cattle everywhere but the people worship the cattle, not God and they are all going hungry... God made the earth to be aware of the glory of the Lord... America was built on the freedom to worship God in the manner of our own choosing... but "To Worship God".... and while we were giving God the glory for all that is good, for all that we have... for all that we were able to accomplish we grew and grew... the land of America, when the earth felt us giving God the glory,  we grew and flourished and became a mighty nation.  Now we seem unaware of the fact that God is why we are who we are... we have become so full our ourselves that we have put ourselves in danger and if we continue to deny God the praise and thanks he is due our land, our money, our health will respond likewise... we need to stay constantly aware that God made the earth and all that is in it...and the earth will yield according to what we give back to God. So today when you eat, thank God.  When you buy a Christmas present, thank God.  When you sleep in a warm house, thank God. When you put on pretty clothes, thank God.  When you are able to go to work, thank God. When you kiss your children, thank God.  When your spouse is good to you thank God. When you thank God the earth will respond and amazing things will happen.
