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 21:3-4 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, "Look, God's home in now among his people! He will live among with them. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever."

My Thoughts
If somebody told you today do what I say... all day long and tomorrow your day will be beyond perfect...and you knew this person always told the truth and always kept his promises you would give this a try! God ask us for things as his followers... instead of living a day as he tells us...he ask us to live this life as he tells us....and then in our next life he will wipe away ever tear,, there will be no death, sorrow, crying or pain... yet somehow we have trouble doing the things that God ask of us... we just get too caught up in ourselves.... when I do my best to really try to do what God ask of me I think of it this way... "Today just today can I go without sin... can I do the good that comes to me to do?" .... and when I try really hard.... and make sure the Holy Spirit guides my way I can come pretty close... but when I get lost in all of life that is ahead of me...I get lost from God and I don't do it so well... God tells us in Matthew 6:34 "So don't ever worry about tomorrow. After all, tomorrow will worry about itself . Each day has enough trouble of its own." If I can learn that... and learn to keep my eye on God... and learn to only worry what God thinks about me... if I do my best every day, one day at a time to be the person that God ask me to be... it is a lot like trading this day of doing what God wants for another day of wonderful love and perfection! Today... just today I will do my best to make God pleased with my life...and tomorrow... well tomorrow I can give that to God to... but not until tomorrow.
