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."

AMAZING GRACE...THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN...



MEDITATION MONDAY
.



I recently found this graphic of the cross standing in a "G". I assumed it stood for the cross of Christ standing firm because He is God. I read a little further and found that the illustrator meant for the "G" to stand for GRACE. He also wanted the symbol of the cross to represent the letter "t". In fact, the author of this visual meant for it to stand for "Truth in Grace".
.
That, of course, connects me to our memory verse:

GRACE and TRUTH!
.
At some point, when we come in contact with truth, we see it for what it is. Truth has boundaries! Truth can be black and white! Truth helps! Truth hurts! Truth has blessings and consequences. Grace gives truth balance. Grace can season truth and make it palatable. Scripture says that Jesus is FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH! In my journey to be like Jesus, I desire to be a woman FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH!
.
When I became a part of God's family, I came into His Kingdom. Matthew calls it the Kingdom of Heaven. In fact, the only place the term "Kingdom of Heaven" is used is in the book of Matthew. Yesterday, Steve challenged our congregation to look at the Kingdom of Heaven as the "realm and reign" of Christ in our lives. The realm of the Kingdom of Heaven has already begun! We're living in it! Therefore, to be Kingdom People, we must let Christ reign in our lives. Kingdom People are people FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH!
.
