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.

Isaiah 26:12 Lord, you will grant us peace; all we have accomplished is really from you.

My Thoughts
I love, love this verse!!  Today it just jumped off the page straight into my heart! When we get this, really get it! That all we have accomplished, all that we have IS from God we are more able to relax and enjoy life! If all that I have and all that I could do was solely on my shoulders I would be in a constant state of terror! I would be immobilized by fear! If it was up to me to get all that I have and to keep all that I have, I would starve. Yet I never starve, or go hungry... and I have a house full of extras! So many extras that I couldn't name them all. God even gives me time to play!! To enjoy my extras. Oh how much he loves us!

The part about this verse that is so, so exciting is  if we truly know that all we have accomplished  IS from God, then when we have one of those seconds of fear about our future, or about getting old and incapable...we can just look back at all that we have, all that we have accomplished and know that if God took care of me so perfectly wonderful in the past. If God took such good care of uw when we were young and stupid. How much more God will take care of us now that we am older and wiser. How much more God will take care of us because we have learned to seek after him.

That thought just makes me smile! Just that thought give me peace that  can only come from God.
