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.

I think grace happens easiest when we put ourselves completely in somebody else's shoes. Not looking at their situation from our own shoes. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one...so when God sent Jesus down to live on this earth as a man that is just what he did , put himself in our shoes. God's grace is all encompassing, it abounds! When we have trouble passing out grace to someone we need to say..what would I do if I were them? If I were born in their situation, if I worked their job, if I lived with their family, if I had their personality. I think so often we might find that we would not handle their situation as well as they are handling it if we put ourselves completely in their shoes. We need to leave nothing out then grace will abound from us too.
