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."

SOMETHING ABOUT THAT NAME... NAME... NAME... NAME...


MEDITATION MONDAY

.

John 1:18, our verse for this week says, "No one has ever seen God, but GOD THE ONE AND ONLY, who is at the Father's side, has made Him known." Jesus is "GOD, THE ONE AND ONLY"!
.
If you haven't yet wrapped your mind around the fact that Jesus is God and that He was at creation creating, then maybe the scriptures and posts this month have given you a fresh look and opportunities to consider just that. When Jesus, GOD THE ONE AND ONLY, chose to humble himself into a baby and come to earth, He became God with skin on.
.
Yesterday, Dan Cooper's lesson topic was THEY TOOK THEIR FRIEND TO JESUS, taken from Mark 2:1-12. This is one of my favorite Bible passages. Four faithful friends are persistent in trying to meet the needs of their paralytic friend by taking him to GOD THE ONE AND ONLY.
.
Dan shared that each of us have burdens that we carry and we must lay them down. Those burdens may be causing us to be paralyzed in other ways besides being physically paralyzed. What should we do with those burdens? We must choose to lay those burdens down. Yesterday, we sang songs like: "Lay Your Burdens Down", "Bring Christ Your Broken Heart", and "Burdens are Lifted at Calvary".
.
In the story in Mark 2, Jesus chose to do the most important thing first - forgive the man's sins. Then, he healed his body!
.
Dan compared the healing of the man's body to the healing of his soul. I have taken what Dan said and tweaked it for our meditation today:
.
  • To heal the body, it took a MIRACLE MAKER.
  • To heal the soul, it took a MESSIAH
  • To heal the soul, it took a SAVIOR WHO WAS THE SACRIFICE
  • To heal the soul, it took a DEATH DEFYING DELIVERER.

.

To heal the body and the soul, it took JESUS... there's just something about that NAME... GRACE... How amazing!
