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.

Luke 12:29-32 "And don't be concerned about what to eat and what to drink.  Don't worry about such things.  These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs.  Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.
So don't be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom.
My Thoughts
I love this!!  We so often go about worrying about life...about our houses being perfect... about waring perfect clothes... we worry about what we are going to eat... and how we are going to fit in... if we are good enough for the world.  We worry and worry and worry.  We each have our own things that we worry about. 
If we seek after God, all our needs will follow, God will take care of all of our needs.  But it is our job to seek after God.  Oh and when we do seek Him life will change in amazing ways!! 
I use to worry about everything, EVERYTHING. I worried constantly.  I lived in a state of anxiety and often felt panic about anything and everything.  It was like if I worried enough that act itself would make things okay.  When I started reading my Bible every day... and learned to love knowing all that I could about God's word... my panic went away and my anxiety went away. I feel so safe these days.  I know that seeking God is what changed me.  Every once in a while I will feel that old anxious feeling and then I stop and ask myself, "What have I not given to God? Is there a sin that I have not asked forgiveness for?" as soon as I figure out the answer and talk to God about it that peace that passes all understanding takes over again. It is amazing how God takes care of us, and He wants to!!  He wants to give us all of His Kingdom!  I am learning that the more I grow, the more of His Kingdom He trust me with!!
