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.

Luke 17:17-19 Jesus asked, "Didn't I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?" And Jesus said to the man, "Stand up and go. Your faith has healed you." 

My Thoughts
The men who should have been aware of Jesus, the men who were aware of Jesus enough to ask for healing didn't come back and thank Him. The foreigner who was most surprised by his healing cam back to thank Jesus. Then Jesus want upset because he didn't get a thank you, Jesus was upset because God was not given the glory.

How often as children of God, who are not surprised by God's goodness,do we forget to notice all the good things God does for us in a day? How often do we overlook God's blessings? How often do we take them for granted? We need to say to ourselves I may be the only one that says thank you today, so I don't need to forget! 

Shame on me, I have often told of blessings God has poured out in me...but forgot to send up thanks! I must do better!
