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.

Luke 6:27-28 "But if you are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. Pray for the happiness of those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you."

My Thoughts
Jesus goes on to say a few verses down that it is easy to love people who love you even sinners do that.. and it is easy to do good to people who are good to you... as Christians we are go be good to everybody, even when it is hard... especially when it's hard.  This is about loving your neighbor.... no matter who your neighbor is...no matter what your neighbor does... this is about loving your family ...no matter who your family is.... no matter what your family does. We expect God to love us and forgives us no matter... God expects the same from us.  Sometimes this seems impossible... the thing is all things are possible through Christ.. it tells us that in Philippians 4:13... it says ALL THINGS...that means being kind to the hateful... forgiving the unforgivable... turning the other cheek... giving your shirt and your coat to a person that ask for you coat (Luke 6).... From experience I can tell you it is really hard for me sometimes to be around somebody that has been hurtful to me... I tend to run the other way as fast as my legs will carry me... apparently I shouldn't .... I should smile and be sweet and kind... I should pray for these persons.... I should especially love the unlovable..... I always try to be good, and sweet and kind.... but I run from the mean and hateful every time.... I would not want God to run from me. I am so blessed  that I can do All THINGS through Christ who strengthens me...and I am blessed that He is strongest when I am weak (2 Corinthians 12:9).  Because it will take God's strength for me not to run...and I ain't going to run anymore!
