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."

HE'S STILL WORKING ON ME...CHISELING...TRANSFORMING...



TRANSFORMING THURSDAY


Yesterday, we read both Esther's and Mary's words from scripture. They both were women who obviously wanted to please God. They had possibly prayed at one point, "God, I want to be your woman... lead me, guide me, stay living right inside me". What happens when God answers those kind of prayers by allowing difficult circumstances? With very strange "unexplainable" happenings?
.
Esther's response, when she knew that she had to stand up for her people was, "If I perish, I perish!"
.
Mary's response to Gabriel when told she would give birth as a virgin was, ""For nothing will be impossible with God. Behold, the bondslave of the Lord; be it done to me according to Your word."
.
Tuesday morning in our ladies Bible study of "The Patriarchs", we were in Genesis 45. Joseph is able to look back at his life and "get the big picture". He was able to see the sovreignty of God. Joseph saw God's hands at work in the difficult circumstances of being left for almost dead to being imprisoned in a foreign land:
.



Genesis 45:4-9
Then Joseph said to his brothers,
"Please come closer to me."
And they came closer.
And he said, "I am your brother Joseph,
whom you sold into Egypt.
5 And now do not be grieved or angry with yourselves,
because you sold me here;
for God sent me before you to preserve life.
6 For the famine has been in the land these two years,
and there are still five years
in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting.
7 And God sent me before you
to preserve for you a remnant in the earth,
and to keep you alive by a great deliverance.
8 Now, therefore,
it was not you who sent me here, but God;
and He has made me a father to Pharaoh
and lord of all his household and ruler over all the land of Egypt."


.
Are there things in your life that you have not allowed to transform you for the better? Are you training your mind to look at things the way God sees them? He sees the teeny tiny nano details of our lives! He also sees our lives in the grand scheme of things - the big picture! As He continues to work on you and me, it would do us good to review two things that have been on this blog in the last two weeks: 1. A video 2. A cartoon strip
.
May something you read or see here today be transforming!
