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."

SLOW FADE? DOESN'T HAVE TO BE...LOVE IS A DECISION...


I watched the movie FIREPROOF last night for the fourth time. The first time I watched it was last fall when it came out in theaters. The second and third times were when our church had two showings of it last weekend. Then, last night Steve, Jessica, and I rented it on Comcast for $4.99 for 24 hours. If I had time today, I'd have a group over to watch it again. Bottom line... relationships DO NOT have to be in a SLOW FADE like our theme song this week from the movie talks about.
.
I am thankful that God has made it so that LOVE IS A DECISION. Whatever is happening in anyone's home right now...in anyone's life...a decision can be made to NOT fade out of the picture but to ask for forgiveness and make a decision to love God's way. Is it hard? Of course! Anything of value takes work and sacrifice!
.
In my Sunday post, I shared a video clip and the words to Slow Fade. Yesterday, I posted some thoughts for meditation on what love is. I invite you to read/watch/listen to those two posts as well as the video clip below that I also posted a week ago with the movie's theme song, While I'm Waiting. I encourage everyone to take the LOVE DARE challenge, get the LOVE DARE book that they used in FIREPROOF, and do the LOVE DARE to your spouse.
.
I am so grateful that God gives us hope for renewal, for pure hearts, and for love as we wait on Him.

It is no coincidence I came across your blog through Simple Women today. I was actually going to write a post on The Love Dare today. When I watched the movie Fireproof it was the first movie where at the end I said WOW, that was good and life changing. I have been a Christian for some time but it was a much needed movie for me. I started The Love Dare yesterday and am doing it with open arms. I found that Day 1 I could apply it to other relationships besides the one with my spouse, especially since last week I went through some trials with friends and sadly lost 3 relationships. Anyways, your post was wonderful and I am so glad I came across it! I am going to go check out your other posts now!
