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 29:20 There is more hope for a fool than for someone who speaks without thinking.

My Thoughts
Wow!... We all go about just talking, talking, talking.  Most people just have a need to be heard.  I know I do...sometimes worse than others. This verse got me to thinking about how we are suppose to seek God in all that we do. That includes opening our mouths.  What if every time we started to say something we sent up a quick prayer that our words would be right, what if we asked God to keep our mouth closed if we shouldn't say what we were about to say? I bet a lot of our mouths would be closed, a lot more often. What if we said a quick prayer that our words would be good words, kind words... what if we asked when the phone rang for our ears to listen more than our mouth speaks? I know I think often that I should pray before I answer the phone... but I have been answering the phone all my life without doing that. So I just react without prayer first.  That act in itself is pretty foolish. 

Romans 12:12 tells us to be in constant prayer.... 1 Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to be in uninterrupted, constant prayer.... that means that we need to pray before speaking. This is for sure something that I need to work on!!
