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."

EAST TO WEST

SUNDAY IN THE SON

.
Scripture tells us that "...all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." True peace comes only from being in relationship with God. Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace! It is through Him and Him alone that we can be reconciled to God and be accepted as if we have never sinned.
.
I sit here at Cape May, NJ at the tip of South Jersey, the southernmost tip of the peninsula. We are where the Delaware River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Yesterday evening, the sun set in the west as some looked out over the Delaware River. This morning, I will look to the east out of my hotel room window as the sun peeks up over the waves of the Atlantic. I will once again marvel at the vastness of territory that the sun shines on in a 24 hour period - from the east to the west.
.
Then, I remember the Prince of Peace...my LORD and SAVIOR...my big brother... Jesus Christ knows quite well just how far the east is from the west...how far His forgiveness extends...from one nail scarred hand to the other...

BLESSED ARE THE PEACEMAKERS,
FOR THEY WILL BE CALLED SONS OF GOD...
Matthew 5:9

East To West lyrics

Here I am, Lord, and I'm drowning
in your sea of forgetfulness
The chains of yesterday surround me
I yearn for peace and rest
I don't want to end up where You found me
And it echoes in my mind, keeps me awake tonight...
I know You've cast my sin
as far as the east is from the west.
And I stand before You now as though I've never sinned
But today I feel like I'm just one mistake away
from You leaving me this way
.
Jesus, can You show me
just how far the east is from the west
'cause I can't bear to see the man I've been
come rising up in me again
In the arms of Your mercy I find rest
'cause You know just how far the east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the other
.
I start the day, the war begins,
endless reminding of my sin
Time and time again
Your truth is drowned out by the storm I'm in
Today I feel like I'm just one mistake away
from You leaving me this way
.
I know You've washed me white,
turned my darkness into light
I need Your peace to get me through,
to get me through this night
I can't live by what I feel,
but by the truth Your word reveals
I'm not holding on to You,
but You're holding on to me
You're holding on to me
.
Jesus, You know
just how far the east is from the west
I don't have to see the man I've been
come rising up in me again
In the arms of Your mercy I find rest
'cause You know just how far the east is from the west
From one scarred hand to the other
One scarred hand to the other
From one scarred hand to the other
.
