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.

12.7.10

3 John 1:11 Dear friend, don’t let this bad example influence you. Follow only what is good. Remember that those who do good prove that they are God’s children, and those who do evil prove that they do not know God.

My Thoughts
So often we see somebody doing bad and think they have a good heart...we excuse it... we excuse it in ourselves lots of times when we do something we know is wrong...but the Bible tells us that we prove by our actions that we are God's children... so many of the decision we think we have to ponder over should be straight cut answers if we are asking ourselves what God would want us to do... so today if you are pondering if you should or shouldn't do something ask yourself will this decision prove that I know God... then you will have your answer!.. I need to start asking myself this questions... I intend to start asking myself this question... I challenge you to do the same.

I have a story to share on this note Jeannie - my hubby and I were in a "heated" discussion about our spiritual direction. I was upset but really not for a good reason and it my anger was unwarranted. I realized it at some point because I decided to asked God what I was supposed to do - You know the answer I got - go hug your husband - I did and felt so much better and it made him happy too!
