It is GOD who BLESSES and TRANSFORMS...
This is a blog for women who:
(1) Desire to be transformed by JESUS' LOVE, HOLINESS, AND GRACE; (2) Believe that GOD'S WORD is the true Spirit food for HIS HOLY SPIRIT who lives within us; (3) Submit to GOD and walk this journey of life with HIM transforming us more and more into HIS likeness.
It's a blog about the POWER OF TRANSFORMED LIVES. Let's begin with yours and mine and pass it on... 1 + 1 + 1...
Since God's Holy Spirit lives inside a christian, let's choose to be nurtured and transformed by feasting daily on Holy Spirit food - God's Word - The Holy Bible..
Once in a while I take a hiatus from writing, but I have begun again on Easter Sunday 2013. Usually, there will be multiple blog postings each week. You are invited to use it as part of your daily quiet time. Topics may run for several months at a time. The current topic is posted over on the right side bar. Each week, I will try to connect to a song or two that goes with our current topic.
Each day of the week follows a special format: Sunday in the Son; Meditation Monday; GratiTuesday; Women in the Word Wednesday; Transforming Thursday; Family Fellowship Friday; and, Ketchup and Mustard Saturday.
There's a whole lot here! Take your time to browse. Please come back and visit often. Welcome!
Because of Jesus, we can be family,

R.E.A.P.S. - Day Two
"I'm fearfully and wonderfully made." Psalm 139
E mpowered by the HOLY SPIRIT GOD, as I read YOUR WORD-specifically those around my scripture thought for today, it does what it is meant to do: feed YOUR HOLY SPIRIT WHO lives within me:
As I ponder the context of that statement above in Psalm 139, I am reminded once again of the enormity of YOUR presence. YOU, THE CREATOR of the universe, created me AND YOU are always there / here... YOU know me better than I know myself…Yet, YOU still love me and YOU choose to live inside of me (because Jesus has cleansed me)…I can’t really leave any part of this HOLY SPIRIT inspired chapter out…
139:1 For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.
O LORD, YOU have searched me and YOU know me.
2 YOU know when I sit and when I rise;
YOU perceive my thoughts from afar.
3 YOU discern my going out and my lying down;
YOU are familiar with all my ways.
4 Before a word is on my tongue YOU know it completely, O LORD.
5 YOU hem me in — behind and before;
YOU have laid YOUR hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.
7 Where can I go from YOUR SPIRIT?
Where can I flee from YOUR presence?
8 If I go up to the heavens, YOU are there;
if I make my bed in the depths,YOU are there.
9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
10 even there YOUR hand will guide me,
YOUR right hand will hold me fast.
11 If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,"
12 even the darkness will not be dark to YOU;
the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to YOU.
A ttitude of CHRIST JESUS GOD, I see Christ-like attitudes in these scriptures-please be molding them in me:
My simple GRATITUDE ATTITUDE seems so small for what YOU’ve done, are doing, will do, AND can do. Thank YOU for making me…thank YOU for making my children inside of me…thank YOU for loving me no matter what…
P ray to GOD THE FATHER GOD, please listen while I feebly pray about these thoughts…
FATHER, forgive me of my harsh spirit… YOU did not make me to be that way…I am so thankful that YOU made me who I am….yet, God, I need YOU to keep teaching me how to live in this skin…YOU made me…please help me to mature /grow up in YOU… to see YOUR purpose for me…today it is so gray…I ask YOU, THE CREATOR, to shed light on my circumstances and guide my steps to the purpose that YOU want me to fulfill.
S ing with the SPIRIT & Understanding: Today GOD, as we have talked, You have put this song on my heart...I give it back to YOU…YOU are so faithful… please keep it there throughout the day, help it teach me, help it to make a difference in me today:
LITTLE BY LITTLE IN EVERY DAY…LITTLE BY LITTLE IN EVERY WAY
JESUS IS CHANGING ME…HE’S CHANGING ME. SINCE I’VE MADE A TURN ABOUT FACE, I’VE BEEN GROWIN’ IN HIS GRACE, JESUS IS CHANGIN’ ME. HE’S CHANGIN’ ME, MY BLESSED SAVIOR…I’M NOT THE SAME PERSON THAT I USED TO BE…SOMETIMES IT’S SLOW GOING BUT THERE’S A KNOWIN’ THAT SOMEDAY PERFECT (MATURE) I WILL BE…
