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.

Psalm 116:1-2 I love the Lord because he hears my voice and my prayers for mercy.  Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have a breath!
My Thoughts
I love these words, "Because he bends down to listen," amazing!!  I love picturing God bending down to listen to my words.  But you know what?  God can't hear us if we are not talking to Him.  What I have learned from David is that He talked to God about everything, every feeling he had.  And when he was thinking in a way that he shouldn't, after talking to God his thoughts would become clear and right again. 
I so have to get better at this...talking to God instead of people when I am frustrated about a situation in my life.  It isn't that God can't hear me when I am talking to others... the problem is that I can't hear God when I am talking to people instead of Him.
