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.

Joshua 24:27 Joshua said to all the people, "This stone had heard everything the Lord said to us.  It will be a witness to testify against you if you go back on your word to God." 
My Thoughts
When I read this I immediately thought of a verse I read just a few days ago... It was when Jesus was riding the donkey down the Mount of Olives and the people were shouting and singing praises to Jesus... the Pharisees among the crowd rebuked the people, the followers of Jesus and Jesus replied in Luke 19:40 "if they keep quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!"
Look at this...the stones, the actual earth was made by God for God.  The earth can testify against us and the earth will praise Jesus if we don't!!  What if earthquakes, and volcanoes erupting, what if tsunami's and hurricanes are the earth erupting with praise for God, because we haven't been praising God? 
That is where my mind went when I read these verses.  What if? The fact is whether I am right or not we are safer, we are protected when we love and praise God!!
When we sin it effects the people around us...and when we love God it effects the people around us...that is why it is so important as a nation we all love God.  When we all come together and love God with all our hearts, souls and minds... our country thrives!!  God makes our crops produce, our people succeed, our weather right and our country strong!!  When we come together as a country and love God even the earth gets to rest because it doesn't need to do our praising for us!
