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."

I HAVEN'T TURNED OUT YET

SUNDAY IN THE SON
.
Today we begin a new focus on the fifth beattitude:
"BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL,
FOR THEY WILL BE SHOWN MERCY."
.
I think that a good place to start this week
is to look at how we show mercy to
our children and/or husbands.
As we hunger and thirst for righteousness,
there are new things that
the Holy Spirit teaches us along the way.
Let's ask that He give us eyes to see what mercy looks like.
.
The first song on the playlist by Steve and Annie Chapman
gives us some powerful food for thought!

I HAVEN'T TURNED OUT YET lyrics

.
The other day, I heard my mom complaining to my Dad.
It seems she was quite certain I was turning out all bad.
And so, that night when she came in to tuck me into bed
I asked her to sit down awhile and this is what I said,
“Mom, you do not need to worry!
Mom, you do not need to fret!
Those things you always tell me, I never will forget.
Someday I‘ll be a grown –up and you’ll be proud of it.
You see, I’m still a kid Mom, I haven’t turned out yet.
.
My Dad was telling Grandpa that he was worried as could be.
It seems his heart was breakin’, he was so ashamed of me.
And so that night instead of Mom it was Dad who tucked me in.
I asked him to sit down awhile. I started with a grin.
I said, “Dad, you do not need to worry!”
I said, “Dad, don’t give up on me yet!
That spankin you just gave me, I never will forget
Someday I’ll be a grown-up and you’ll be proud of it.
You see I’m still a kid, Dad, I haven’t turned out yet.”
.
A little later that same night we heard both Mom and Dad
We peeked through the key hole. They were kneeling by their bed.
With arms around each other, they were talkin’ kind of sad.
It seems that they were prayin’, cause this is what they said…
“LORD, we ask you to forgive us! LORD, we’re so quick to forget!
We were kids not long ago and we’re not grown-up yet
LORD help us to be strong and not do things we’ll regret.
Be patient with us please LORD! We haven’t turned out yet.
Keep workin’ with us please LORD! We haven’t turned out yet.
