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."

GO LIGHT YOUR WORLD WITH LOVE

.
What if someone gave you a "fail proof plan" for your marriage, your children, your entire extended family, in fact for all of your relationships - even your enemies. I have good news! You have this plan already!

.
This week, we've talked about what God's kind of love is. It's called AGAPE! It's the kind of love that makes a difference. It's the kind of love that shines! Years ago, in our early years of marriage, I learned to apply I Corinthians 13 to my relationship with Steve by embedding his name in the chapter. Over the years I have hung reminders around my house, specifically by the bathroom toilet, of this chapter and concept. These reminders have pulled me back to where the rubber meets the road over and over again. Here are a few examples of how it works and some of my wall hangings.



.

THE SCRIPTURE AS IS:
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
"Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails..."

.

THE SCRIPTURE WHEN I PUT STEVE'S NAME IN IT:
1 Corinthians 13:1-4 "My love for Steve is patient, my love for Steve is kind, and my love for Steve is not jealous; my love for Steve does not brag and my love for Steve is not arrogant, 5 my love for Steve does not act unbecomingly; my love for Steve does not seek its own, my love for Steve is not provoked, my love for Steve does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 my love for Steve does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 my love for Steve bears all things, my love for Steve believes all things, my love for Steve hopes all things, my love for Steve endures all things. 8 My love for Steve never fails..."
.
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN WITH THE SCRIPTURE. Use this template to bless your spouse, children, co-workers, and even your enemies....
1 Corinthians 13:1-4 "My love for _______ is patient, my love for ________ is kind, and my love for __________ is not jealous; my love for _________does not brag and my love for ___________is not arrogant, 5 my love for ____________does not act unbecomingly; my love for ___________does not seek its own, my love for ________ is not provoked, my love for ______________does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 my love for ______________does not rejoice in unrighteousness, my love for ____________ rejoices with the truth; 7 my love for ___________bears all things, my love for ______________believes all things, my love for _____________hopes all things, my love for _____________ endures all things. 8 My love for _____________never fails..."
