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...GOD THE ONE AND ONLY...

As we approach the end of the month, let's spend another post focusing on our 2010 OCTOBER SCRIPTURE MEMORY. I've had a great visual, in the last few days, of this week's verse. Roger Collins, a friend of mine and Steve's for 39 years died on Monday night. While out running on Saturday, Roger had a masive heart attack. He was 57. He was the humble, kind, gentle, intelligent husband of Debbie, father of four, grandfather, professor at York College, former cross country coach at York College, and elder in the church. Those who have known him for a long time have used the words steady... consistent... persevering.... wise... loving.... and almost everyone has used the word humble. That is not my visual!
.
My visual is a lone cross country runner crossing the finish line of the race of a lifetime - sponsored by THE ONE AND ONLY! Standing just across the line is THE ONE AND ONLY Himself - JESUS CHRIST.
.
To those of us who have been left behind, we take comfort in verses like this week's verse:.

"No one has ever seen God,
but GOD THE ONE AND ONLY,
who is at the Father's side,
has made Him known."

.
Roger has seen more and knows more than he ever did on this earth. There is now a new normal for him, beyond anything we can think or imagine!
.
The entire 2010 OCTOBER SCRIPTURE MEMORY of five verses reads like this:
.
John 1:14-18



14 The WORD became flesh
and made His dwelling among us.
We have seen His glory,
the glory of the ONE AND ONLY,
who came from the Father,
full of GRACE and TRUTH.
.
15 John testifies concerning Him.
He cries out, saying,
"This was He of whom I said,
'He who comes after me has surpassed me
because He was before me.'"
.
16 From the fullness of His GRACE
we have all received one BLESSING after another.
.
17 For the law was given through Moses;
GRACE and TRUTH came through JESUS CHRIST.



18 No one has ever seen God,
but GOD THE ONE AND ONLY,
who is at the Father's side,
has made Him known."

Each of those five verses begins differently:
.
  • 14 The WORD became flesh...
  • 15 John testifies concerning Him....
  • 16 From the fullness of His GRACE...
  • 17 For the law was given through Moses;
  • 18 No one has ever seen God, .


What if we added a visual hook to the beginning of each verse?

.

Would it help?

.

  • 14 The WORD became flesh...
    .
  • 15 John testifies concerning Him....
  • .

  • 16 From the fullness of His GRACE...

  • .
  • 17 For the law was given through Moses;

  • .

  • 18 No one has ever seen God,


.
