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."

WHAT FAITH CAN DO... HELP ME TO STAND IN CHRIST ALONE...





WOMEN IN THE WORD WEDNESDAY


This is the third week to focus on our scripture memory for September: Ephesians 6:13-18. The last two weeks, our theme songs, coupled with different parts of our scripture have encouraged us to put on THE FULL ARMOR OF GOD:
  • First, we sang, I'M JUST A SINNER SAVED BY GRACE, as we were encouraged to STAND FIRM in that grace. We learned that our Heavenly Father wants us to be protected from the evil one, so He has extended us His FULL ARMOR to wear. "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. STAND FIRM..."
  • Then, we sang, IN CHRIST ALONE: the TRUTH and nothing but the TRUTH... OUR ONE AND ONLY RIGHTEOUSNESS.... THE GOSPEL/GOOD NEWS... the PRINCE OF PEACE... Our scripture began to explain the pieces of HIS ARMOR that we must put on: "...with the BELT OF TRUTH buckled around your waist, with the BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS in place, and with your FEET FITTED WITH THE READINESS that comes from THE GOSPEL OF PEACE."
  • Now, we are focusing on FAITH, SALVATION, and the WORD OF GOD as all parts of GOD'S ARMOR. This week's scripture focus is: "In addition to all this, take up the SHIELD OF FAITH, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the HELMET OF SALVATION and the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, which is the word of God."

Join me as we practice this week's scripture together and what we've already learned. For September, you can find the entire scripture over on the right sidebar. After that it will be moved down to the bottom of the blog and be replaced with October's scripture.

Let's read and re-read verses 13 to 17:

Ephesians 6:13-17

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.

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. .

16 In addition to all this,

take up the shield of faith,

with which you can extinguish

all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17 Take the helmet of salvation and

the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Now let's focus on verses 16 and 17:

16 In addition to all this,

take up the shield of faith,

with which you can extinguish

all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

17 Take the helmet of salvation

and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
