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 26:12 Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed.

My Thoughts
How often do we go about making plans without even thinking about consulting God? We do it all the time...the best of us!!  How many of our plans would we change if we first commited our actions to God?  Just the act of commiting our actions to God would stop a lot of our choices in their tracks.  We need to get into the habit of commiting everthing we do to God, everything.  I think the quality of each thing we did would change in amazing ways if we started out saying this God I am doing for you! 

One thing that comes to mind is preparing dinner...what if we said I commit this meal to you God.  Would we be as likely to cut corners...to leave out one of the sides that we thought about adding?  We would do such a better job at cooking dinner if we commited that action to God. And in the process we would be taking better care of our families.

At work when we are tempted to cut corners because no one will know anyway...if we commit that day of work to God...we would know that God would know and we would be much less likely not to cut corners. Therefore making the company we work for more successful.

When we commit our days, our chores, our actions to God..we do better...when we make this commiment,  God blesses us by making sure we succeed in life. It is such a win, win to commit our lives, our work, our actions, our words, our thoughts to God...we become better people in the process...then God smiles down on us and blesses us with success!
