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."

CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST: FORGIVING OTHERS AS YOU HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN AND AS YOU HAVE FORGIVEN YOURSELF...

.
"Blessed are you when men cast insults at you,
and persecute you,
and say all kinds of evil against you falsely,
on account of Me.
"Rejoice, and be glad,
for your reward in heaven is great,
for so they persecuted the prophets
who were before you."
Matthew 5:11-12
.
"Father, forgive them;
for they do not know what they are doing."
Luke 23:34
.
"'You shall love the Lord your God
with all your heart,
and with all your soul,
and with all your mind.'
"This is the great and foremost commandment.
"The second is like it,
'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'
"On these two commandments
depend the whole Law and the Prophets."
.
These scriptures connect us with some things that Steve presented to us in his sermon on Sunday. I posted his outline here on Monday and encouraged your meditation on it. Then, in the last 36 hours I have had multiple discussions with several of you on the phone, via email, and face to face about how hard this is. Yes, forgiveness is hard! Please read it here again:
.
TWO QUESTIONS
  1. Can I be saved if I am UNFORGIVEN? NO! - see Acts 2:36-40
  2. Can I be saved if I am UNFORGIVING? NO! - see Matthew 6:14-15

.

HOW DO I FORGIVE?

  1. Make a decision to forgive!
  2. Say the words!
  3. When you forgive, FORGIVE!
  4. Forgive completely!
  5. Forgive repeatedly! (Satan will keep tempting you to take back in your hands what you have already chosed to Lay Aside - don't pick it back up again... choose to forgive repeatedly...70 x 7)

.

Now, you've forgiven...you've been forgiven...

.

BE THANKFUL AND...

REJOICE!!!!!
