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 Four

Saturday, June 21, 2008 a.m.:
I missed Friday so I’ll try to do 2 today to stay caught up…but if I don’t the world will not end!

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

"I will direct your steps." Proverbs 20:24

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 GOD says that HE will direct my steps…that in itself is empowering! These verses in Proverbs 20 not only feed me, but connect so well with my focus for today…

  • The LORD will direct my steps: NOT WINE! v. 1
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO AVOID STRIFE / QUARRELING v. 3
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO PLAN AHEAD AND NOT BE LAZY v.4
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO MAKE ME A WOMAN OF UNDERSTANDING v.5
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO MAKE ME A FAITHFUL WOMAN v.6
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO MAKE ME RIGHTEOUS AND BLAMELESS…(which will bless my children) v.7
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO KEEP MY HEART PURE v.9
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO BE HONEST IN MY DEALINGS v.10
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO HELP MY CHILDREN HAVE CONDUCT THAT IS PURE AND RIGHT v.11
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO HONOR HIM WITH MY EARS AND EYES v.12
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO NOT LOVE SLEEP v.13
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO HELP MY WORDS AND ACTIONS MATCH v.14
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO HELP MY LIPS SPEAK KNOWLEDGE v.15
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO NEVER FRAUD ANYONE v.17
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO SEEK WISE ADVICE/GUIDANCE v.18
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO NOT GOSSIP OR TALK TOO MUCH v.19
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO NOT CURSE v.20
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO NOT BE QUICK WITH MONEY v.21
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO NOT PAY BACK EVIL FOR EVIL v.22
  • The LORD will direct my steps: TO NOT MAKE VOWS I WILL NOT KEEP v.25
  • The LORD will direct my steps: BY SEARCHING MY SPIRIT/INMOST BEING v.27
  • The LORD will direct my steps: IN LOVE AND FAITHFULNESS v.28
A ttitude of CHRIST JESUS GOD, I see CHRIST-LIKE attitudes in these scriptures-please be molding them in me:

  • humility
  • meekness - letting God direct my steps
  • self - control
  • avoider of strife/quarreling
  • planner
  • worker...not lazy
  • understanding
  • faithful
  • righteous
  • blameless
  • honest
  • pure
  • true
  • knowlegeable
  • wise
  • controlled tongue
  • money wise
  • careful with vows
  • spiritual
  • loving

P ray to GOD THE FATHER GOD, please listen while I feebly pray about these thoughts…

Father GOD, I ask for YOU and YOU alone to direct my steps…forgive me of not allowing that to happen so many times…give me the awareness that it is YOU WHO is doing it…teach me to be aware of YOUR presence, YOUR direction…

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…

It’s interesting that it is not necessarily the song that I would have picked, yet….I am convinced that when YOU lead / direct my thoughts that I must follow:

LEAD ME TO SOME SOUL TODAY…
OH, TEACH ME LORD JUST WHAT TO SAY…
FRIENDS OF MINE ARE LOST IN SIN
AND CANNOT FIND THEIR WAY.
FEW THERE ARE WHO SEEM TO CARE
AND FEW THERE ARE WHO PRAY…
MELT MY HEART AND FILL MY LIFE….
GIVE ME ONE SOUL TODAY.
