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.

Mark 7:32-35 A deaf man with a speech impediment was brought to him, and the people begged Jesus to lay hands on the man to heal him.

Jesus led him away from the crowd so they could be alone. He put his fingers into the man's ears. Then spitting on his own fingers, he touched the man's tongue. Looking up to Heaven, he sighed and said, "Ephphatha," which means, "Be opened!"  Instantly the man could hear perfectly, and his tongue was freed so he could speek plainly. 

My Thoughts
How have I read my Bible through and it taken four times for my to hear this story? It is such a symbol of how when we go to Jesus, when we seek, that God opens our ears to hear and our mouths to speek. The more I seek God by reading his word the more I understand it and the more I understand it the more I find myself speaking it. I use to wonder how to be a witness to people beyond my actions..but in seeking Jesus Jesus has made my ears able to hear and understand God's word and my mouth able to have the words to say to tell others what God has done for me. This may be one of my favorite stories, now that it has popped off the pages into my heart!
