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 Three

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

“ I give you wisdom." James 1:5

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:

James 1:2-8 2
Consider it pure joy, my sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, she should ask GOD, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to her. 6 But when she asks, she must believe and not doubt, because she who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That woman should not think she will receive anything from the LORD; 8 she is a double-minded woman, unstable in all she does.

A ttitude of CHRIST JESUS GOD, I see Christ-like attitudes in these scriptures-please be molding them in me:
  • JOY THROUGH TRIALS
  • FAITH
  • PERSEVERANCE
  • WISDOM

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


Father God, I ask for wisdom today…take away my unbelief…give me mustard seed faith that YOU will give me YOUR wisdom to guide me through this day and on into eternity…YOUR judgment in being a wife and mother, a physical and church family member, just a member of society…there are so many decisions that need to be made on a daily basis….GIVE ME YOUR WISDOM, GOD….I thank you in advance.

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:

I’m gonna hide GOD’S WORD in my heart…
It’s a lamp unto my feet.
I’m gonna read GOD’S WORD everyday….
It’s my food, my bread, my meat…
I’m gonna stand on the truth of the Bible…
I’m gonna open my eyes, I’m gonna memorize….
