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."

THE GREATEST GIFT A MOTHER CAN GIVE IS THE WISDOM OF HIS WAYS

TRANSFORMING THURSDAY

.

I stood on the sand of Amelia Beach last weekend and felt it beneath my toes. It was exhilerating to have the waves come up over my feet and ankles and then head back east again. After a few minutes of standing there, things began to change. The sand became unsteady. I began to sink. I wondered if there was a chasm below that was about ready to suck me into the center of the earth. I moved away quickly!

.

As a mother, I pray that my children will always know where to stand. Where to stand in the things that matter. They have been taught to pray for wisdom. They know that there are a lot of things in life that really don't matter. They have been taught that Jesus is THE ROCK. In Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, near the beginning He says to "hunger and thirst for righteousness" and then toward the very end of the sermon He says these words:

.

Matthew 7:24-29
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash." When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at His teaching, because He taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law."

.

Years previously, God had already given Solomon these words to write. I put it below with bullets so you can see the points that he emphasizes.

.

Proverbs 4:4-13

  • "Lay hold of my words with all your heart;

  • keep my commands and you will live.

  • Get wisdom, get understanding;

  • do not forget my words or swerve from them.

  • Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you;

  • love her, and she will watch over you.

  • Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom.

  • Though it cost all you have, get understanding.

  • Esteem her, and she will exalt you;

  • embrace her, and she will honor you. She will set a garland of grace on
    your head and present you with a crown of splendor."

  • Listen, my son, accept what I say,and the years of your life will be many. I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.

  • When you walk, your steps will not be hampered;

  • when you run, you will not stumble.

  • Hold on to instruction, do not let it go;

  • guard it well, for it is your life. "
.

How do you and I get wisdom? The wisdom of His ways? God told us through James many years after Solomon and a few years after Jesus spoke the words above:
.

James 1:5-6 "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind."


.


Get wisdom! Teach your children how to get wisdom! It's transforming!
