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,

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."

HE'S STILL WORKING ON ME...LIKE HE DID ON ESTHER...MARY...


This week, I am speaking in two workshops. Today, I am making a presentation in Kingston, NY. On Saturday, I will be speaking at the Bridgewater, NJ church of Christ ladies day. Saturday's theme is "FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS". Yesterday, in Bible class we talked about this in relation to Joseph (hopefully, I'll extend that discussion into tomorrow's post). For now, let's get into THE WORD and think about how "God was working on" Esther and Mary in these two scriptures:
.
In Esther 4,
Mordecai said to Esther,
“And who knows whether you have not
attained royalty for such a time as this?"
Esther’s reply to the responsibility challenge
included these words,
“…all the Jews…in Susa…fast for me;
do not eat/drink for three days, night or day.
I and my maidens also will…
then, I will go in to the king,
which is not according to the law;
and if I perish, I perish."
.
In Luke 1,
The angel Gabriel said to Mary,
"Hail, favored one!
The Lord is with you."
Mary was greatly troubled at this statement,
and kept pondering what kind of salutation this might be.
Gabriel, then said,
"Do not be afraid, Mary;
for you have found favor with God.
And behold, you will conceive in your womb,
and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus.
He will be great,
and will be called the Son of the Most High…
and His kingdom will have no end. "
Mary replied,
"How can this be, since I am a virgin?"
Gabriel answered,
"The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
and the power of the Most High will overshadow you;
and for that reason the holy offspring
shall be called the Son of God.
And behold, even your relative Elizabeth
has also conceived a son in her old age;
and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month.”
Mary replied,
"For nothing will be impossible with God.
Behold, the bondslave of the Lord;
be it done to me according to Your word."
.

HE'S
STILL
WORKING
ON
ME
TO
MAKE
ME
WHAT
HE
WANTS
ME
TO
BE...
