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 119:130 The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand. 
My Thoughts
My first thought when I read this was that anybody can understand God's word if they just start reading.  I believe that is true!!  God's word tells us that if we seek wisdom, wisdom will be given to us. (James 1:5).  So we just need to seek after God and all His wisdom...that wisdom is found in the Bible.  Every time I read it I am amazed that I learn something new. 
Then as I typed the words...I saw the word teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand.  Teaching was important... I know a young man that knows God's word back and forth... He has a college education and a degree from seminary, but he is so eager to let people know how smart that he is that he looses people in conversation.  As I listened to him talk one day I wondered if his future congregation would "get" what he was teaching.  What God tells us and what Jesus taught us is simple and straight forward.  When we share it with others we need to make it simple and straight forward.  My husband use to tell our children, "It doesn't matter how smart you are, if you don't have the words to make people understand you might as well be speaking a foreign language." 
When we share God's word with others we need to make sure that there is nothing we say that is so complicated that people walk away confused by the simple fact that God loves us!!  That everything that God does for us or to us is because He loves us beyond compare!
