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 21:29 The wicked bluff their way through, but the virtuous think before they act.

My Thoughts
I taught my kids "Patience is a virtue." I should have also taught them "It is virtuous to think before you act." Thank goodness they are both pretty good at that!  God often steps in when we try our best but just don't know what we need to know yet!  Thank you God.

We have all heard people state with a bit of pride "That is just how I am, I act before I think." Or "I am always speaking before I think."   It tells us right here that to be virtuous that we must think before we act.  If we bluff our way through we are doing what is wrong.  We need to stop and think before we speak, before we act...we need to be honest enough with ourselves and others to say "I just don't know." 

Deep down we all want to be virtuous, I hope, here is one way to be just that... think before we act.
