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."

IN CHRIST ALONE... I STAND IN TRUTH, RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND READINESS...


OUR SEPTEMBER 2010 SCRIPTURE MEMORY is Ephesians 6:13-18

Last week, we focused on:
  • 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand...

Now, this week, we continue to STAND FIRM with the beginnings of God's armor.

  • 14 Stand firm then, . ...with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.

I know when we each get up in the morning, we have a different routine. I have a memory hook story that follows someone's morning routine and helps me memorize a lot of Bible lists. It is from my mother-in-love, Mama Sikes. Although she has never taught me how to use it to memorize God's armor, I find it to be quite easy. Won't you join me?

  1. My ONE alarm clock goes off in the morning and I jump up and STAND beside my bed.

  2. I pull on my TWO legged pants and they are way too baggy, so I need to keep them up WITH THE BELT OF TRUTH BUCKLED AROUND MY WAIST.

  3. I sit down on my THREE legged stool to put my shirt on and tuck it in. The problem is that I have THREE of my five buttons missing. Oh! Why do these kind of things never seem to go right for me? Oh! That's right, I need to cover my shirt with THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNES.

  4. I'll sit down on my FOUR legged chair at my four legged table. I need something on my feet! I can sit here and put on some boots that will cover my feet and shins. I continue getting ready WITH MY FEET FITTED WITH THE READINESS THAT COMES FROM THE GOSPEL OF PEACE.

There you have it! I'm half way there! Half way to putting on the full armor of God:



  • 14 Stand firm then, . ...with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
