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.

Mark 4:18-19 The seed that fell among the thorns represents others who hear God’s word, but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the worries of this life, the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things, so no fruit is produced.

My Thoughts
The devil loves to plant worries in our mind. Give us things we don't need to want to distract us. When we are busy wanting and worrying we are not busy thinking on God's words, God's promises, God's commandments. Psalms 43:10 tells us that if we seek God that we will not lack any good thing. So if we set our mind on God...everything else will be provided for by God.  The devil will take every opportunity, every situation he can to get our mind off God!... If making us want doesn't work he will make us worry.  God promises to take care of all our needs. God promises to make our lives overflowing with his blessings... God wants to pour out his blessings on us!... Our part, and we always have a part, is to keep our hearts and our minds on God, on God's word, on God commandments. Then God takes care of the rest.

When you find yourself wanting, when you find yourself worrying... have God's word handy. If you have to write a few verses on an index card and keep it in your pocket...or put a reminder in your phone that comes up several times a day with a verse... do what ever it takes to think on God and his promises... don't let the devil choke our the wonderful love of God. When we take time for God, with God... God takes care of us.
