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."

MERCY CAME RUNNING...AMAZING GRACE...

SUNDAY IN THE SON

.


It is my prayer that as this week goes along that these two scriptures and two songs become embedded deep within our souls.


.


OLD TESTAMENT:

Micah 6:8

"He has showed you, O man,

what is good.

And what does the LORD require of you?

To act justly

and to love mercy

and to walk humbly with your God."

.

Ephesians 2:1-10


"And you were dead in your trespasses and sins,


in which you formerly walked...


...we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh,


indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind,


and were by nature children of wrath,


even as the rest.


But God, being rich in mercy,


because of His great love


with which He loved us,


even when we were dead in our transgressions,


made us alive together with Christ


(by grace you have been saved),


and raised us up with Him,


and seated us with Him in the heavenly places,


in Christ Jesus,


in order that in the ages to come


He might show the surpassing riches


of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.


For by grace you have been saved through faith;


and that not of yourselves,


it is the gift of God;


not as a result of works,


that no one should boast.


For we are His workmanship,


created in Christ Jesus for good works..."


.


MERCY CAME RUNNING LYRICS: 1.


Once there was a holy place


Evidence of God's embrace


And I can almost see Mercy's face


Pressed against the veil


Looking down with longing eyes


Mercy must have realized


That once His blood was sacrificed


Freedom would prevail


And as the sky grew dark


And the earth began to shake


With justice no longer in the way


Chorus:


Mercy came running


Like a prisoner set free


Past all my failures to the point of my needs


When the sin that I carried


Was all I could see


And when I could not reach Mercy


Mercy came running to me


2.


Once there was a broken heart


Way to human from the start


And all the years left it torn apart


Hopeless and afraid


Walls I never meant to build


Left this prisoner unfulfilled


Freedom called but even still


It seemed so far away


I was bound by the chains


From the wages of my sin


Just when I felt like giving in


repeat chorus.


3.


Sometimes I still feel so far


So far from where I really should be


He gently calls to my heart


Just to remind me .


repeat chorus


.
