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,

Patti



TRANSFORMED MOMS:MOMS TRANSFORMED

Romans 12:1-2 "Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect."

R.E.A.P.S - Day Eleven

R ead, ‘rite, and repeat Scripture: GOD, give me the wisdom to understand the simple thought that comes out of this verse:

"Cast all your cares on ME." I Peter 5:7

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:

When I think of a boat going down for the last time, I see passengers throwing everything overboard to keep themselves from sinking – “casting everything overboard.” In the same way, I am sinking and I need to “cast every care of mine to GOD”. It seems that humbling myself is the first step before I can give GOD all my “worries”.

1 Peter 5:6-11
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of GOD, that HE may exalt you at the proper time, 7 casting all your anxiety upon HIM, because HE cares for you. 8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world. 10 And after you have suffered for a little while, the GOD of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in CHRIST, will HIMSELF perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish you. 11 To HIM be dominion forever and ever. Amen. NASB

A ttitude of CHRIST JESUS GOD, I see CHRIST-LIKE attitudes in these scriptures-please be molding them in me:


  • Humility
  • Giving up worries
  • Sober spirit
  • Alert
  • Resisting the devil
  • Faithful
  • Knowledgeable
  • Full of grace
  • Praying to GOD THE FATHER

GOD, please listen while I feebly pray about these thoughts…GOD, worry is a killer.

I confess, I especially worry over money…yet, I know YOU have continually taken care of me. Right now, I’m casting….casting my cares to YOU God…finances, bills…bills…bills…, health insurance, the right job for me, Steve’s back, Jessica’s migraines & general health, Crystal’s schooling, Caleb’s job/schooling/health insurance, Jordan’s schooling…one at a time I’m throwing them overboard to YOU…please don’t let me take them back… just help me stay alert and resist the devil...Because of Jesus…I CAN!

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

LOVE LIFTED ME! LOVE LIFTED ME!
WHEN NOTHING ELSE COULD HELP
LOVE LIFTED ME!

I WAS SINKING DEEP IN SIN, FAR FROM THE PEACEFUL SHORE.
VERY DEEPLY STAINED WITHIN, SINKING TO RISE NO MORE.
BUT THE MASTER OF THE SEA HEARD MY DISPARING CRY.
FROM THE WATER LIFTED ME, NOW SAFE AM I.

LOVE LIFTED ME! LOVE LIFTED ME!
WHEN NOTHING ELSE COULD HELP
LOVE LIFTED ME!
