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.

Galatians 6:4-5 Pay careful attention to your own work, for then you will get the satisfaction of a job well done, and you won't need to compare yourself to anyone else.  For we are each responsible for our own conduct.

My Thoughts
Wow oh wow... would it not be interesting to watch a business where everybody did this for one day?! Can you imagine how much would be accomplished if everybody payed attention to what they were doing and doing it to the best of their ability! How much time do we loose judging other? Joyce Meyer said today "Judging people is a fruit of not loving people." If we could put into practice going about doing our best at what ever we do.  Doing our best at home, with our families, at work in our friendships. Just think of how much more we could get done if we didn't stop to see what and how other people were doing their thing!!  Most importantly we need to do our best at loving God and loving others the way God ask us to.  Can you imagine getting to heaven and God showing you a rerun of parts of your life.... how many times when God ask "Why weren't you doing your job here in this picture?" would we have to say, "I was busy judging somebody for not doing theirs." 

We all go about judging, it seems to make us feel better about what we do wrong and what we do right. If we would take time just to do our best at what ever we are doing we wouldn't feel the need judge others... Right here it tells us if we do our best we won't need to compare ourselves to anyone else.  We so need to learn that God gave each individual person his/her own individual personality and abilities.  God does not what us to be like others. God wants us to be the best person he made us to be! We need to embrace our abilities and our differences and do our best...and when it comes to other people we need to just love them!! Do our very best to show every family member, every friend, every acquaints, every stranger love. If we spend our time being the best "me" we can be.  If we spend our time loving others. We, each indiviual, each "me" can make a positive difference in the world.
