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."

JUST AS I AM

SUNDAY IN THE SON
.

I am so excited that God is providing a way for me to continue this blog in 2009. We started in June with the same message that we will start 2009 with:
.

POUR IT OUT!
.
Let's pour ourselves out at the feet of Jesus!
.
Blessed are the POOR IN SPIRIT!
.







1.
Dear Lord,
I’m on my knees again
I come to You because You understand
I’ve tried so hard,
but I just can’t change myself
That’s why I know I need Your help
Chorus:
So here I am
This in my plea
My only hope is Your love for me
I’m reaching out
So desperately
Come take my hand;
take all of me
Just as I am!
2.
Oh Lord,
You make what’s broken new
Why can’t I just learn to follow You
I want to know You and feel You in my soul
I surrender all control
(Chorus again)
I am not afraid to follow You where You lead me
I can leave the past behind me
I’m forgiven and I’m free!

It's my favorite David Phelps song! I haven't heard it in a long time. Thank you for bringing it back to the front of my mind. It brings back memories of our Masterful Moms class last summer. I have missed everyone over the holidays. Can't wait for Tuesday morning when our ladies'class resumes. It also makes me mindful of those of our number going through storms of life. This is kind-of a "where the rubber meets the road" song. Those inspire me. The nitty gritty, no frills. Just pure humanity clinging to pure love and salvation in Christ's death. It reminds me we can hide things from other humans, but God knows every hair, every wart, every tear, every fear, every thought. To go to Him in utter surrender....what release. And He loves us, there is no threat of losing His love. May we then extend this brand of love to others.
I am mindful of you with your busy schedule and deadlines. Thank you for taking time to blog today.
Love to you my sister-friend,
Mandy

Mandy,

What a present your words are to me! It's after midnight. I was tired and took a break from grading portfolios. Reading this has given me new energy. Thank you, sister!

What's on my mind is the amazing ways I have seen you grow IN HIM since our summer class. You inspire me!

I'm praying for you, your family, and your new full time job. Just keep pouring it out...clinging to Him...warts and all...every tear, every fear, every thought...

I love you, dear sister,
Patti
