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."

WHILE I'M WAITING ON YOU LORD...

SUNDAY IN THE SON

.
Mercy takes place all the time in agape love! Mercy extended with grace gives hope! Mercy benefits both the receiver and the giver! There are multitudes of people who have been on their knees this week praying and begging God for mercy in many situations. There are multitudes of christians who have been blinded to the fact that they are God's instruments of mercy. So, while many pray and wait on God's mercy in difficult circumstances, we must pray that God give us eyes to see and ears to hear which prayers include us as part of the answer. Two things that Christ said in His Sermon on the Mount come to mind:
.
Matthew 5:7 "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy."
.
Matthew 7:12"So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets."
.
  • The Schwamb's want mercy for their three year old daughter Lauren's heart.
  • The Deal's, the Keesee's, the Baldwin's, and the Smith's want mercy for their grief in the loss of a family member.
  • We want mercy for our daughter, Jessica's, 24/7 migraines.
  • Many want mercy because of pain and suffering, both physical and mental.
  • Others cry out because of no job or money.
  • Mercy is begged for in marriages and families around the world.

.

The last two nights we have shown the movie, Fireproof, at Pitman. If you have not seen it, please find a way. I can't emphasize it enough. Last night was the third time that I have seen it and tears still fell. It applies to more than marriage. It is about truly understanding the NEEDS of another. It's about living the GOLDEN RULE. It's about extending mercy and grace...

.

You may want to turn off our theme song on the playlist so that you can listen to it here on the video while you have the words to read. May you be forever changed!

I'm waiting! I'm waiting on You, LORD!

And, I am hopeful. I'm waiting on You, LORD!

Though it is painful. But patiently, I will wait.

I will move ahead, bold and confident,

taking every step in obedience, while I'm waiting.

I will serve You, while I'm waiting!

I will worship, while I'm waiting!

I will not faint!

I'll be running the race, even while I wait.

I'm waiting! I'm waiting on You, LORD.

And I am peaceful. I'm waiting on You, LORD.

Though, it's not easy.

But faithfully, I will wait.

Yes, I will wait.

I will serve You while I'm waiting!

I will worship while I'm waiting!

I will serve You while I'm waiting!

I will worship while I'm waiting!

I will serve you while I'm waiting!

I will worship while I'm waiting on You, Lord!

Thank you for the music that I need to hear today! I'm going to copy down the words to hang in our room.

I saw something about the song that credits Psalm 40:1 as part of the inspiration. It'll be my verse to memorize this week.
