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.

2.5.11

Psalms 29:11 The Lord gives his people strength.  The Lord blesses them with peace.

My Thoughts
I got saved when I was just 9...and along the way I dedicate my life to God several times... trying to live right along the way... but somehow I was still missing out on God's gifts of strength and peace.  I suffered anxiety and panic attacks.  I did handle stress good at all.  Then my son, John-Robert gave me a One Year Bible for Christmas in 2009... I started reading it every morning and praying... and I got stronger and stronger and less anxious... now I pretty much just don't worry.  I feel pretty strong too.  What I learned that I never knew before is that as a Christian I had to do my part go get to know God.  I had to read His word so I could learn His wisdom and what He wanted for my life... I had to be in prayer talking with and listening to God.... not pray at God.  To truly have salvation I had to have a relationship with God. Reading my Bible each morning... praying and talking to God each day... and throughout the day... asking God for guidance...taking the road less traveled ...now that has made all the difference.

You have No idea how much I needed to hear this exact passage. I was just discussing with a very good friend how I'm anxious and worrying lately that all the good I have right now - will be taken...and I worry...and have been anxious. My relationship with God needs a big boost...I think I'm going to get a One Year Bible myself! Thank you so much Jeannie!
