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 24:45-50 "A faithful, sensible servant is one to who the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them.  If the master returns and find that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward. I tell you the truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all that he owns.  But what if the servant is evil and thinks, 'My master won't be back for a while," and he begins beating the other servants, partying and getting drunk? The master will return unannounced and unexpected, and he will cut the servant to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites.  In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
My Thoughts
Oh my!  The "it don't matter's" and the "I will do it better tomorrow's" are going to be our downfall. That attitude of  "I will be the person that God wants me to be tomorrow, when I have time" ... is just like the servant that decided to party today.  His master did come back and find him not being the person that he needed to be.  Putting off until tomorrow puts us right in there with the hypocrites, says Jesus here in Matthew 24. 
But look at the first of the story!! The part were if we do what Jesus, God ask of us. If we are busy doing our best... he did say the servant was perfect he said the servant did a good job.  If we do our best at doing a good job then God will reward us!  What does He reward us with??  All that He owns is ours to enjoy!!!  God's power and protection, His love and peace, His treasures are ours!! 
Will we mess up?  King David, a mighty man of God messed up!!  But he was always busy doing his best. God considered Him man of God.  We will mess up!!  Jesus died for us because we do mess up.  God loved us even in our sin, enough to send Jesus.  When we love God, even when we mess up God loves us so much that He will give us charge of His Kingdom!! But, we must love God.  We can't say we will love him tomorrow.  We can't mistreat Him by doing what we want until we think He is looking. We must love Him.  We must do our best to show that love in all that we do.  
We each have a choice... we can choose to be a child of the Most High.. or we can choose the world.  And it is important that we understand choosing God only when we think He is looking, is not choosing God at all.
