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.

Proverbs 18:1 Unfriendly people care only about themselves; they lash out at common sense.
My Thoughts
Some people are unfriendly all the time. Most people are not..but some are.  But most of us are somewhere in the middle...we are friendly a huge part of the time...but then there are those days where we don't feel very friendly. 
What I am taking away from this verse is this... When I find myself being unfriendly I need to stop and ask myself, in what area of my life am I being self absorbed?  What do I need to take to God?  I am going to get myself back in balance with God so that I will not lash out...so that I will not forget all common sense.  So often when I have had an unfriendly day that is the very day that I might lash out at Robby and wonder where it even came from.  It came from being totally self-absorbed. I am learning that when I am self-absorbed I am not God aware.  For God's love to flow through me I must be God aware. 
So if I find myself being unfriendly, I will first send up a prayer to God and ask Him to send down His grace to make me able.  Then I will head back home and get myself God centered so that I can become friendly again!
