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."

YOUR GRACE STILL AMAZES ME... I WANT TO RECEIVE IT IN IT'S FULL MEASURE...



.
The family of God is the best family on this planet! We have all the amazing BLESSINGS that God provides to everyone who lives here like: air, water, food, sunshine, rain, health, relationships, physical family... Yet, for those who are IN CHRIST, we are filled up to overflowing with spiritual BLESSINGS. John says that it's because of Christ's GRACE that this happens.
.
In about a week's time, there have been over 40,000 views of the Youtube video of CHIP'S STORY, that I have posted on this blog. If you have time to watch it again or for the first time, notice what Chip says about God's family. It is so encouraging!
.
As I've pondered my BLESSINGS IN CHRIST, again today, I think of several of Christ's teachings:
  1. Matthew, Mark, and Luke all share Jesus' parable of the sower. Jesus says that there are different kinds of soil. You and I are the soil. We must make a choice as to whether or not we want to receive what Jesus plants in us. How? Will we be hard and difficult to work with? Will His water of life soak into us or just run off? OR, will we be easy to work with... to form and to shape? Will we allow His water of life to fill us up to overflowing?
  2. It really boils down to how Jesus began the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5: BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT, FOR THEIRS IS THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN...
  3. Then, there's our scripture memory for this month, from John 1, that reminds us that Jesus is this amazing balance of GRACE and TRUTH... and from that comes blessing after blessing...

.

I am certainly not shy to say that I'd like to receive those BLESSINGS in full measure!

.

Have you counted your BLESSINGS IN CHRIST today?

Let Chip encourage us today, via the reading of John 1, which he recorded BEFORE his heat stroke:
