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.

Revelations 13:10b This means that God's holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.

My Thoughts
During the end of time Christians will endure persecution.... and we are expected to remain faithful... in our "politically correct" world we so often keep our mouths shut... sometimes we use the excuse of politeness and manners to keep our mouths shut.... worst of all we don't truly, on our own know the Word of God enough to defend it... so we keep our mouths shut.  We need to be bold enough, strong enough to live our lives, to speak God's words... we need to learn and grow and remain faithful to God in all areas of our lives... so when times get harder... when evil gets bolder ... we are strong enough, wise enough, faithful enough... to remain faithful..... we need to learn to feel and hear the Holy Spirit inside of us, guiding and directing us and act on what the Holy Spirit is guiding us to do in all situations so that we are practiced in hearing God's voice, practiced in standing for God's word... practiced in doing right when everything around is doing wrong so when life gets harder... when evil works harder... we can fight the fight...we can know how to hear God so that we can remain faithful.  It is like how the army teaches soldiers drills to go through and they practice over and over and over so when the moment comes...when they have to make a choice they make the choice to start the drill and the hard stuff follows automatically... We need to be armed with the Word of God... we need to me armed with the ability to always hear the Holy Spirit... we need to be "use to" depending on prayer and communication with God in all that we say and all that we do...so when we are placed in the heat of battle we automatically depend on God... and his grace takes over and keeps us faithful!
