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.

1 Corinthians 7:23 God paid a high price for you so don't be enslaved by the world.

My Thoughts
Wow!  How often are we enslaved?  So many things enslave us. Some people are enslaved by drugs or alcohol.. having to have what our neighbor has... having to be home to watch the big game.  Our credit card dept because we just had so have something last year that we couldn't wait for.  Having to dress like Susie or Jane... having to have bigger tires on our mud trucks then our neighbor... having to make more money so we can have more things.  Chocolate!   What are you enslaved by?? I am enslaved by so much... but we don't have to be!!  In fact it makes God so sad when we are... He watched his Son suffer for us... and then we get caught up in the world.  I really need to work on this oneneed to work on this one!! I need to take the time to identify what enslaves me.
