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."

GOD IS GOOD... THE CREATOR, THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE...

TRANSFORMING THURSDAY

.
Today's post builds on yesterdays post as well as building on our memory scripture for the month. So, I hope you take a minute to connect back with yesterday's post before continuing here.
.
God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit (who some refer to as The Trinity or God or The God-head) created the world. It is a whole study in itself to understand this 3-in-1 concept. Genesis 1: 26 says of The Trinity,


Then God said,
"Let Us make man in Our image,
in Our likeness,
and let them rule over...
...all the earth..."
.


JESUS IS MY CREATOR!

.
God, The Trinity, is holy! He cannot live with sin because He is pure and good. He is the opposite of sin and evil. It wasn't too long after He created mankind that His creation was deceived by the father of lies. Adam and Eve bought into the lies that sin and evil were okay. Thus, began "the human condition". Then, the dilemna arose: how could God's creation live with God in a community of holiness and love when they had embraced and/or tolerated sinfulness and hate?

.

God came to earth to be several things for mankind:

  1. To be "God with us" - to walk among us and to be able to model how to live the human life victoriously. Matthew 1:22-23 says, "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"-which means, "God with us."
.

Many people only know Jesus as the baby in the manger from the sweet Christmas stories. It is when people embrace the concept that Jesus (God) chose to come in the form of a baby that it becomes mind-boggling. He chose to become humanity. He grew up on this planet. He walked this earth to model for us the true way to live and die.

.

John 1 tells us that Jesus, The WORD of God, became flesh and dwelt among us!!!

Fourteen chapters later, John quotes Jesus' words as He encourages us to watch Him, follow Him, believe Him, live like Him, and live with Him...


"I am the WAY
and the TRUTH
and the LIFE.
No one comes to the
Father except through me.."
.
It looks like our good CREATOR is telling us that it's all about Him. In a word: JESUS. Understanding that concept is TRANSFORMING!!!!
