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.

Galatians 1:10 Obviously, I'm not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ's servant.

My Thoughts
I am a people pleaser, so you would think that this verse would not be a verse that feel under my favorites list (I have so many favorites!). But it is!! This fact simplified my life like you would not believe.  I now make my choice on what would please God and let everything else fall into place.  Sometimes I mess up, after all I have spent all my life trying to please people.  But I do my very best to please God.  When I do this, I find that God softens the hearts of the people around me and I usually please them too!!  But when I don't that is okay, I have done what God would have me do, so I don't end up with anxiety.  Too there is one God...and so many people... you are never going to please all people.  It makes life so much simpler to choose to please God.

See being a servant is a good thing, it simplifies life!  If we are a child of God we are the servant of a loving master that only does the best for us.  So He will take care of our needs and protect us from danger, spend time with us and love us beyond measure.  It is a win, win!!

PS  God even gives us instructions!!
