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.

Psalms 2:1-3 Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans? The kings of the earth prepare for battle; the rulers plot together against the Lord and against his anointed one. Let us break the chains,"they cry, "and free ourselves from the slavery to God."

My Thoughts
We go about wondering why our economy is so bad. Why gas prices and grocery prices are so high. Why unemployment is high.  Why our country falls further and further behind. It is because we have failed to worship God, to put God first in our lives!  Deuteronomy 28:1-13 tells us that if we obey God's commands he will set us above all the nations of the earth! He will bless our towns, fields, crops, our children, our fruit baskets and our bread baskets that we will prosper wherever we go! God will establish us and give us prosperity if we obey His commands.

We keep putting our hope into our government to save us... to make rules that will protect us. We need to all get on our knees to God... we need to learn his commands so that we know what it is we are to be keeping. When we put God first our nation, our cities, our children, our land, our works will prosper... when we put God first he won't let us fail! When we put God first we don't even have to do things smart... God will take care of us. When we think we are so smart that we don't need God then it doesn't even matter how smart we become all our plans will be futile!

If we want unemployment to be smaller, gas prices to drop, groceries to be lower... if we want prosperity in our homes and in our land...in our country we as a nation have to turn back to God. The healing of the United States starts with Christians setting our hearts and minds on God... it starts with us getting on our knees... the rest God will take care of! America was built on the right to worship God, people flocked here and our nation grew by leaps and bound... America became great overnight because we loved God and kept his commands... We can be that great nation again...we can grow strong again! We can grow stronger than before... it is in our hands to put our country in God's hands...in God's hands everything prospers!
