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.

Proverbs 14:4 Without oxen a stable stays clean, but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.

My Thoughts
I thought want on earth does this verse mean?!?!?!  Then almost as quickly as I had that thought I had the answer.  We can stay in our safe little world of home and church... surrounded by things that don't tempt us that don't dirty our minds ... that won't dirty our hearts... but to reach people for God we need to risk messing up... getting "dirty"... taking the wrong steps to reach thee people that don't know about God's great love. I think God would rather us try and mess up and learn and try again... than for us to stay as white as snow locked away from the world... when we take that step in faith God's grace steps in and takes over.
