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."

GOD IS IN CONTROL: BE OF GOOD COURAGE!

KETCHUP AND MUSTARD SATURDAY
Catch Up and Must Do
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
Sorry, I used all the mustard!
Our family has usually lived nearby either a Sonic or a DQ.
We live by neither here in South Jersey.
So, yesterday, Steve made a special stop
at Sonic in another town
and brought me my Sonic burger with mustard!
Ahhhhh!
.
If you are new to this blog,
I use Saturdays to "catch up".
.
Since the beginning of the New Year,
I have made the emphasis on this blog to be the
Be-Attitudes of Jesus from His Sermon on the Mount.
We try to have a weekly theme song
to encourage in focusing on our topic.
.
"Blessed are the poor in spirit..."
(humble, selfless, "it's not about me!", putting God on the throne).
.
"Blessed are those who mourn..."
(crying out to God, sorry for my sins, asking for forgiveness...)
.
"Blessed are the meek..."
(giving God the reins, letting God be in control, gently following His lead...)
.
OKAY! We're ready for the fourth one...
We'll begin tomorrow spending a few weeks on
"Blessed are those who
hunger and thirst for righteousness..."
.
.
MUST DO:
Please join me in continuing to pray fervently for these three precious children and their families. I posted yesterday about Connor...he is not doing well...I will try to keep an update over by his picture on the right. Maria may have her surgery on Wednesday of this next week. Lauren developed a cough yesterday, which is not good for someone awaiting a heart transplant. Their parents ride a roller coaster of emotion while needing to be so strong for these children and their siblings.
.
Please pray specifically for:
  • Lauren and her dad and mom - Tim and Cristi...
  • Maria and her dad and mom - Vince and Lorraine...
  • Connor and his dad and mom - Ron and Nan...
.
"The prayers of the righteous availeth much!"
.
GOD
IS
IN
CONTROL!
.
1.
This is no time for fear!
This is a time for faith and determination.
Don't lose the vision here-
Carried away by emotion.
Hold on to all that you hide in your heart!
There is one thing that has always been true-
It holds the world together.
.
CHORUS:
God is in control!
We believe that His children will not be forsaken.
God is in control!
We will choose to remember and never be shaken.
There is no power above or beside Him,
we know...oh...oh...oh...
God is in control!
oh...oh...oh
God is in control!
.
2.
History marches on
There is a bottom line drawn across the ages
Culture can make its plan
Oh, but the line never changes
No matter how the deception may fly
There is one thing that has always been true
It will be true forever
.
CHORUS:
God is in control!
We believe that His children will not be forsaken.
God is in control!
We will choose to remember and never be shaken.
There is no power above or beside Him,
we know...oh...oh...oh...
God is in control!
oh...oh...oh...
God is in control!
.
3.
He has never let you down
Why start to worry now?
Why start to worry now?
He is still the LORD of all we see
And He is still the loving Father
Watching over you and me
watching over you...
watching over me..
watching over everything..
watching over you..
watching over me..
every little sparrow..
every little thing...
every little thing...
.
CHORUS:God is in control!
We believe that His children will not be forsaken.
God is in control!
We will choose to remember and never be shaken.
There is no power above or beside Him,
we know...oh...oh...oh...
God is in control!
oh...oh...oh...
God is in control!
we know...oh...oh...oh...
God is in control!
oh...oh...oh...
God is in control!
