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 12:35 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart.
My Thoughts
When I read this I thought, "What we keep in our heads and what comes from our mouths eventually drops down into our hearts."  To be good, we have to think on things which are good. Philippians 4:8 tells us this, "Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." When we do this our hearts become good and our actions follow. 
When we dwell on upset and talk about it and talk about it and talk about it... our thoughts become angry, then our hearts... then our words and actions. 
To be produce good things from a treasury of a good heart we must put good things in our mind so that good falls down into our heart!!  This takes effort on our parts.. it is a decision we make. It is a choice we have.  To be good we must take our thoughts captive (2 Corinthians 10:5). Once we take our thoughts captive...our hearts and our actions will follow.
