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."

VOICE OF TRUTH...TRUTh...TRUth...TRuth...Truth...tRUTH...trUTH...truTH...trutH...truth...


No matter how you dice it, truth is truth! Sometime between Saturday evening and my Sunday morning class, I changed the focus of my class to TRUTH. I can rest assured that if I have been walking and talking with God that when these last minute changes occur it is because the Holy Spirit is at work on a greater plan.
.
In the class I teach on Sunday morning, I shared a little bit about what my topic had been at Saturday's retreat at the Bridgewater Ladies' Day. We talked about the voices of discouragement that take place inside of our heads. I shared it some on this blog on Sunday. We looked at some extremely powerful verses about "the voice of TRUTH" beginning back with David, then with Jesus, and then with Paul. .
.
Amazingly, Dan's sermon, that was given before and after our class, was centered around the word TRUTH. Since I did not post on Monday, I 'd like to share with you a few of those powerful insights into TRUTH from Dan's lesson and then a few of the scriptures that we had talked about in class. Neither Dan nor I knew that each other's Sunday morning focus was TRUTH. GIGATTAATTGIG!
.
FROM DAN'S SERMON:
  • In the 20th century, when it came to evangelism, the question being asked in America about religion was, "What is TRUTH?" Our answer was, "Here is TRUTH..."
  • In the 21st century when it comes to evangelism, the question being asked in America about religion is, "Does it work for me?" We're still trying to answer in the same way, "Here is TRUTH..."
  • We still need to teach the TRUTH, but we need to realize that we are trying to answer questions that people are not asking.
  • To listen to all of Dan's sermon, you can click the link on the sidebar. I know that many of you do listen to Dan and Steve weekly. They allow God to bless us through them!

Join me today in looking through the scriptures that were on my Sunday class handout...scriptures about TRUTH. Since Dan's sermon, I see more clearly how important it is to emphasize the other words that are other spiritual traits that are in the heart of Jesus. In fact, our MARKING FOR MEANING class put hearts at the top of each page, of our Bibles, where these scriptures were with the words inside the heart to remind us of the traits inside the HEART OF JESUS.

.

It seems that we may need to get some conversations started about the question "Does it work for me?" Use the verses below and ponder what else is in those verses besides TRUTH...

  • Does doing the right thing work for me?
  • Does mercy work for me?
  • Does love work for me? What's the opposite?
  • Does grace work for me? What's the alternative?
  • Does life work for me? What's the alternative?
  • Does light work for me? Darkness? (Lies vs. Truth ???)
  • Ahhhhh...and that leads me to talking about the TRUTH!!!!!
