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...I WANT YOUR IDENTITY...





TRANSFORMING THURSDAY



Today is the National Day of Prayer. Oh, how I want to stay connected in prayer throughout everyday to my Heavenly Father! I don't want to "say my prayers" as if it were some rote obligation. I want to have a daily relationship / communication with my Heavenly Daddy! I want my identity to be in Him. I want people to say that they "see Him in me"!

.

In fact, this last weekend as I spent time with our new grandbaby, we discussed how it looks like little Chloe resembles her mommy's side of the family from the nose down and our side of the family from the nose up. That must mean that she has "her daddy's eyes".

.

Last night, in our Thessalonians class, Glynn led us in a discussion of chapter 5. We spent quite a bit of time on vss. 4-8: our identity and our responsibility. We talked alot about us being "CHILDREN OF LIGHT". It reminded me of the verse in Ephesians 5 that says, "...you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord."

.

Of course, I want to learn what is pleasing to the LORD. So, in true Patti fashion, I needed to give myself some kind of connection. I thought about our scripture from yesterday and, of course, Matthew 5. If I want my Heavenly Daddy's eyes...if I want to learn from Him and imitate Him...if I want His identity...then, making it my practice to live in the LIGHT as His child is what I need to be doing today and everyday.

.

I came home after class and constructed these 2 "Handouts for Children of Light" on WORD documents. The first one is symbolic of a staircase going up to the sun as an illustration of 1 Peter 1:1-11. The second one is from Christ's Sermon on the Mount when He tells us that The Blessed Life is the way to be THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

.

I challenge you to internalize these concepts...talk to God about them...
