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.

Nehemiah 2:4-5 The king asked, "well how can I help you?" 

With a prayer to the God of Heaven, I replied, "If it pleases the king and if you are pleased with me, your servant, send me to Judah to rebuild the city where my ancestors are buried.

My Thoughts
The king told Nehemiah yes. What stood out to me so strong in this passage was that before Nehemiah spoke he sent a prayer up to God. We/I should always do this before we open our mouths. You know it was not a long prayer, the king who had the power to have Nehemiah killed had asked him a question. It was a prayer in his heart as he was preparing to speak. Nehemiah had already prayed over the situation, and over speaking to the king. Now before he opened his mouth to give an answer he prayed to God again. 

How much different would our lives be if we prayed each time before we speak. How often would God give us the valor of others if we just practiced this kne small act? I believe it would be life changing.
