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 Thessalonians 1:11-12 11 So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honored because of the way you live, and you will be honored along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.

My Thoughts
What a beautiful prayer!  "Please God enable my friends to life a life worthy of your call. Give them the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do."  I love that this ends with "This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.  I love how this goes with Philippians 4:13 that says all things are possible through Christ who strengthens  you.  I love that God gives us the power to accomplish all good things!! 

We need to seek out the good to do in a day.  We need to never ever underestimate the power of something good no matter how small it might seem to us. Sometimes that small moment of goodness is huge in somebody else's life...it can turn their day around... and we never know when it turns a life around completely. When we see a moment to help we need to remind ourselves that all acts of goodness and kindness, whether it is a simple smile, or a kind word... or something huge like paying a persons bills or buying someone a car.... all acts of kindness honor God.  God will give us the power for that smile, that kind word, that hand up... God gives us, puts in us what we need to be good.

Each time we think that "we should" do something nice for somebody...then we feel too tired .. or out of time... we should remember this verse... because God will give us the strength, the time... the ability. Then when we honor God... God blesses us in return.

Wow when we honor God, God even echos back honor into our lives.

What will you echo today?
