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

SUNDAY IN THE SON
.
Back when I owned the business Ten Thousand Angels, I would go to the Christian Bookstore Association (CBA) market each summer. The family went with me several times. In 2001, Jordan, Jessica, and I went together. It was one of those rare times in the last 13 years that Jessica was able to go and do. She had just had her gall bladder out and had really turned a corner in being able to manage her pain and feel better. We didn't know how short lived it would be but we made some wonderful memories.
.
That summer, the CBA market was in the now famous New Orleans Convention Center. We loved these markets because all the vendors who sold to Christian Bookstores were there including christian musicians and authors. Over the years I was blessed to have my booth near such people as Thomas Kinkaide, Frank Peretti, Jars of Clay... and this particular year I was across from singer Twila Paris. This woman has blessed many, since 1981, by releasing 22 albums, amassing 33 number one Christian Radio singles, and being named the Gospel Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year three years in a row. You may know her by one or more of the songs that she has made famous. I have added some to the music playlist and listed some here:
.
  • HE IS EXALTED
  • WE WILL GLORIFY
  • WE BOW DOWN
  • THE WARRIOR IS A CHILD
  • DAYS OF ELIJAH
  • GO LIGHT YOUR CANDLE
  • HOW BEAUTIFUL
.
and, our theme song for this week:
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!
