Well, I read the One Year Bible and I just find the verse that speaks to me the most that day.
Today my verse was from proverbs and it said, "Better to be patient than powerful; better to have self control than to conquer a city." (16:32). I needed this verse because sometimes I have a hard time being patient with my dd, but if I lose my patience I lose my respectability. so that was the one I thought about today. I even caught myself twice, about to snap at her, and I remembere the verse and gathered myself and corrected her with dignity.
I was also greatly blessed this morning as I read about the death of Stephen in Acts; he was killed for his faith, and the apostle Paul was there approving of his death. I can't read that without crying. He says, "Look, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing in the place of honor at God's right hand!" right before he dies. I hope I see heaven before I die : )
