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 34:10 Even strong young lions sometimes go hungry, but those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.

My Thoughts
I think one of the key parts of this passage in today's world is "will lack no good thing."  So often we go about thinking we are doing without... we may be going without something we think we need...but when we love and trust in God we don't go without the things that are good for us!... Sometimes we may not be able to "have" only because what we want because God knows it won't be good for us.  It may distract us from doing that God would have us do.  We get so caught up in the world... and the things of the world that we forget that God only does what is good for us. Next time we think we are "going without" we need to remember that God gives us what we need. Instead of being sad, angry or upset because we can't have "it" maybe we should stop and say "Thank you God for knowing what is best for me. Thank you God for taking care of me. Thank you God for all you have given me. I trust that you know what is best and good in my life."  I am doing to do my best, my very best to remember this the next time I don't get something I think 'I have to have."'
