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."

GIVE ME YOUR EYES...HELP ME TO NOT BE BLIND OR SHORT-SIGHTED...

.
As I flew into Chicago on Saturday, I got a very minimal glimpse of what God sees. He sees the spiritual thoughts and intents of the hearts of every person who lives in each house, apartment, condo, townhome, trailer, tent... He knows them by name. As the scripture in the box above says, He is willing to "direct my footsteps according to His WORD..." so that we will not stumble. He also offers us the secret to having His spiritual eyesight...



TODAY'S SCRIPTURE ANSWERS THESE QUESTIONS:

  1. How can I keep from being spiritually blind and short-sighted?

  2. Is it possible to never "stumble" spiritually?

.

2 Peter 1:5-11

Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence:

  • in your faith supply moral excellence
  • and in your moral excellence, knowledge

  • and in your knowledge, self-control,

  • and in your self-control, perseverance,
  • and in your perseverance, godliness;

  • and in your godliness, brotherly kindness,
  • and in your brotherly kindness, love.

.

8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. 10 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; 11 for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you."

.

May these words sink deep in your heart today, sister. Come back tomorrow and let's talk about how they can be transforming!

Dear Patti: I was hospitalized for almost a week and could not wait to fill myself with the Word as YOU know it, and to gain some of your strength through your blog, as I came home to heal. I have missed so much of your blog by only missing a week. It is unbelievable. Your life is so full, and stressed, and cluttered, and yet, you have only one goal that shines through, and that is to follow Jesus and send His love to as many other people as you can. You are truly amazing! You do the work of a thousand women! (while carrying on your own family life). It is amazing the lives you touch..and I am so glad to be one of them. Thank you, Love, Tanya
