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."

IF I STAND... I STAND FIRM IN HIS GRACE...


MEDITATION MONDAY


.
Last month as we looked at the armor of God, our scripture encouraged us to STAND FIRM in His armor. It was only by His GRACE that He extended His armor to me. It is only by His GRACE that He allows me to continue to wear His armor.
.
The amazing thing about JESUS CHRIST is what Hebrews 13:7-9 says,
.
"Jesus Christ is the same
yesterday
and today
and forever.
Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings.
It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by GRACE..."
.
.
AH! To know the love of God and have full confidence in His power and willingness to forgive and be faithful!
.
Yesterday, Dan challenged our congregation to KNOW GOD... KNOW JESUS... KNOW SCRIPTURE... It is not something that is very common place in our country today. In a recent poll, more people did not know what The Golden Rule was than knew what it was.
.
What about Biblical prophecy? We can know who we believe and what we believe just by studying how Jesus fulfilled hundreds of Biblical prophecies about Him hundreds of years after He was prophecied. A few examples:
  • As the Son of God - Old Testament prophecy: Psalm 2:7; New Testament fulfillment: Luke 1:32,35
  • As the seed of the woman - Old Testament prophecy: Genesis 3:15; New Testament fulfillment: Galatians 4:4
  • As the seed of Abraham - Old Testament prophecy: Genesis 17:7 - 22:18; New Testament fulfillment: Galatians 3:16
  • As the seed of Isaac - Old Testament prophecy: Genesis 21:12; New Testament fulfillment: Hebrews 11:17-19
  • As the seed of David: Old Testament prophecy: Psalm 132:11 and Jeremiah 23:5; New Testament fulfillment - Acts 13:23 and Romans 1:3
  • His being born of a virgin - Old Testament prophecy: Isaiah 7:14; New Testament fulfillment: Matthew 1:22,23 and Luke 2:7
  • His being called Immanuel- Old Testament prophecy: Isaiah 7:14; New Testament fulfillment: Matthew 1:22,23
  • His being born in Bethlehem of Judea - Old Testament prophecy: Micah 5:2; Matthew 2:1 and Luke 2:4-6
  • Great persons coming to adore Him - Psalm 72:10 and Matthew 2:1-11
.
Whether it's through coming to know Him through His love, the prophecies being fulfilled, or scientific proofs, I am convinced that we can STAND FIRM with confidence because His amazing GRACE gives us encouragment and hope!
.
2 Thessalonians 2:15-17

.

"So then, brothers, STAND FIRM

and hold to the teachings we passed on to you,

whether by word of mouth or by letter.

16 May our Lord Jesus Christ Himself

and God our Father,

who loved us and

by His GRACE gave us

eternal encouragement and good hope,

17 encourage your hearts

and strengthen you

in every good deed and word. "
