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: HE'LL LIVE IN YOU SO BE SURE TO WEAR HIS ARMOR!




I am so thankful that as christians God lives inside of us and even allows us to wear HIS armor! Today's post is special to me for 3 reasons beyond the two I just listed:


  1. I love the Ephesians 6 scripture so much and I'm sure it's because I can relate to it in a very real way because I grew up in a military family.


  2. The picture and comments that Stephanie gave Steve on Sunday that I have posted below.


  3. The close connection some of us have to the events that transpired after the US Airways flight came down in the Hudson River last month.

.


1. Ephesians 6, starting in verse 10, tells us how to be strong in the LORD...really how to let God take control. We put on God's on battle clothes (His armor). Why? So that we can "stand firm against the schemes of the devil" and "resist in the evil day, and having done everything to stand firm." It's an amazing chapter! One of those that you could study in your quiet time everyday for a month and still have more to study! Thank you, God for the richness of your spiritual blessings IN CHRIST!

.

2. This Sunday, one of our "transformed moms" daughter, Stephanie ( who has just recently become a christian) drew a humorous cartoon of my husband Steve. It made me think of how some of you have commented to me about your husband's striving to continue growing in God: Charles, John, Matthew, Greg, Dan, Tim, Brad, Brian, Sherwin...oh, how we all need His armor! Thank you, men! Thank you, Stephanie...especially for including me as Steve's "side kick"!


.

3. Then, there's the spiritual giant who is also a tugboat captain...I did my post on him last Saturday and I am sure that you will want to learn about how Andrea's husband helped on the Hudson River! Thank you, Chuck! Thank you, Andrea! Link here to see the tugboat connection:

Isn't it great how God lets certain things speak to us with our life like military. :D Praise God how He still speaks to us through His Word.
