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 21:27 The sacrifice of an evil person is detestable, especially when it offers with wrong motives.

My Thoughts
I immediately thought of the Psalms 50:14 Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God. We need to be constantly thankful.  Always aware that all that we have does come straight from God.We need to be thankful in the good times and in the bad times.  We can't wait until we need something...those are not thank you's at all those are bribes to get God to listen to us.  Our thankfulness needs to have no motive behind it at all...it needs to be pure..as pure as sacrifices had to be in the Old Testament.  That is when God hears us... God always knows our motives, always.  We need to be self-aware enough to see if we have a motive when we send up thanksgiving to God.  The more we are in line with God's will, the more thankful we are to God for all we have, the better we get at forgiving the more God is able to do for us... not because we want, want, want... but because we love.
