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.

Matthew 17:27 However, we don't want to offend them, so go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a large silver coin. Take it and pay the tax for both of us.

My Thoughts
Jesus and his deciples were in Capernaum and the tax collector came to collect taxes for Jesus and the deciples. Jesus and his deciples had been doing God's word and didn't have the money to pay the taxes. But look what happened... God took care of their needs. They needed money and there it was in a most unusual place, the mouth of the fish.

God will take care of us just the same. If we first seek after God, do the things God ask us to do... God will take care of the rest. Sometimes what we need will come from a must unusual place. A place we may not be expecting it to come from... but it will come. God ask us to love... to love Him and then to love others as much as we love ourselves (Matthew 22:37-39). When we do this God takes care of us.
