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."

WHAT FAITH CAN DO... TEACH US TO TRUST AND OBEY...


At our house, we often say that God will take us to the 11th hour and 59th minute to allow us to trust Him and Him alone. Maybe it's really the 23rd hour and 59th minute. Whatever it is, I have once again been s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d........
.
One of our sons has been without a job for several months now. In fact, about the time he was no longer employed, he and his pregnant wife were rear-ended from behind and their car was totalled. She was very pregnant with their first child! Over the last few months, baby Perry has been born (at home by a mid-wife), Caleb has continued to look for a job, and together they have spent time getting acquainted with parenting and their new son.
.
Because they lived in married student housing and have chosen to sit out from school this semester, they were to be out of their apartment by 9/10. Last week when things were seeming more and more bleak, I texted Caleb asking him, "What's your next step?" He texted back, "TRUST AND OBEY!" Tears flowed! That's one thing that I have repeated over and over as a mother. It's what Steve and I have tried to model for our children. It's what God wants. Our son and his little family were living it out!
.
On Friday, the letter from the university said to be out that night! They could not find housing and there was still no job! After, contacting a university official they were given a reprieve until Monday... yesterday.... still not a lot of time with a baby and no job.
.
Sunday, with the family of God, they shared their need... their story... Praise God for Rob and Carol!!!! An older couple came forward with open arms, basically saying, "We would like to help you until you can get back on your feet!"
.
Monday morning, Caleb got a phone call... a job offer! He goes in to sign the paperwork today!
.
God, You still continue to amaze me, inspire me, give me goose bumps... Thank You for teaching us to TRUST AND OBEY... Thank You, for wrapping Your arms around Caleb, Krista, and Perry and giving them a hope and a future in You!
.
THAT'S WHAT FAITH CAN DO!!!
.
THAT'S WHAT JESUS CAN DO!!!
