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! SO, HOW CAN I KEEP FROM SINGING HIS PRAISE?!?!!!!!!!! ...IT'S ABOUT THE CROSS!!!!

Sunday in the SON


NOTE: I have had a spiritual battle posting today. You will probably see many errors. Just know that as go into the 5th hour of working on it, that I will let it post as is.

.
This is a week full of emotion for me! The topic on this blog lately has been some deep heart stuff! This is Palm Sunday, the beginning of the passion week of Jesus the Christ...His life on earth was culminating down to the reason He came. He made the choice to live THE BLESSED LIFE and die for you and me. This week we will discuss "Be-attitude 9", Jesus' ninth point to teach us to live the BLESSED LIFE:
.



"Blessed are you when people INSULT you,



PERSECUTE you




and FALSELY SAY all kinds of evil against you




because of me.




REJOICE and be glad,



because great is your reward in heaven,




for in the same way they persecuted




the prophets who were before you."




Matthew 5:11-12



.


Today I give you 3 songs... the first two songs written out below are the first two songs being sung on the playlist. The third song is on video and you'll have to turn the playlist off to get the full effect of the video. BE BLESSED! And, please return this week as we discuss REJOICING no matter what the circumstances!


FIRST SONG:



CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST



Sung by Phillips, Craig, and Dean


.
1.

As I look back on what I thought was living
I'm amazed at the price I choose to pay
And to think I ignored what really mattered
Cause I thought the sacrifice would be too great

But when I finally reached the point of giving in

I found the cross was calling even then
And even though it took dying to survive
I've never felt so much alive


.


CHORUS:


For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live

Not I but Christ that lives within me
His Cross will never ask for more than I can give
For it's not my strength but His

There's no greater sacrifice

For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live


.


2.

As I hear the Savior call for daily dying


I will bow beneath the weight of Calvary

Let my hands surrender to His piercing purpose

That holds me to the cross but sets me free
I will glory in the power of the cross

The things I thought were gain I count as loss

And with His suffering I identify

And by His resurrection power I am alive

.
(CHORUS)BRIDGE:

.

And I will offer all I have

So that His cross is not in vain

For I found to live is Christ


And to die is truly gain





(CHORUS)


.

SECOND SONG:


HOW CAN I KEEP FROM SINGING YOUR PRAISE!??!!!


sung by Chris Tomlin


.

1.

There is an endless song


Echoes in my soul


I hear the music ring



And though the storms may come



I am holding on


To the rock I cling.

.

CHORUS:

How can I keep from singing Your praise
How can I ever say enough
How amazing is Your love

How can I keep from shouting Your name

I know I am loved by the King

And it makes my heart want to sing

.

2.

I will lift my eyes
In the darkest times

I know my Savior lives

And I will walk with You

Knowing You'll see me through

And sing the songs You give

.

SING CHORUS AGAIN

.

3.

I can sing in the troubled times

Sing when I win

I can sing when I lose my step

And I fall down again

I can sing 'cause You pick me up
Sing 'cause You're there

I can sing 'cause You hear me, Lord

When I call to You in prayer

I can sing with my last breath

Sing for I know

That I'll sing with the angels

And the saints around the throne
.

SING CHORUS AGAIN

.
