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... ONE BLESSING AFTER ANOTHER...

I invite you to join me today in practicing the first 3 parts of this months scripture memory. I'll follow it afterwards with a few brief comments.
,
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.
.
.
.
Now, practice saying this week's scripture as you slowly scroll down:

From the fullness
of His GRACE
we have all
received
one
BLESSING
after
another.
For the law
was given
through Moses;
GRACE
and
TRUTH
came
through
JESUS
CHRIST.
.
Practice saying this week's scripture with every other word diminished:
.
John 1:14-18
.
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. 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.'" From the fullness of His GRACE we have all received one BLESSING after another. For the law was given through Moses; GRACE and TRUTH came through JESUS CHRIST.

.
Practice saying this week's scripture with every other word missing:
.
John 1:14-18
.
________WORD ________flesh _____ made _____ dwelling ________us. ___ have _________ His _______, the _______ of ______ONE ______ ONLY, _____ came ______ the ______, full ___ GRACE _____TRUTH. ______ testifies _____________ Him. ______ cries ________, saying, "This ______ He _____ whom _____said, '_____ who ________after _____has ____________ me ___________He _______before ______.'"

SCRIPTURE PHRASE:

"From the fulness of His GRACE, we have all received one BLESSING after another"

COMMENT:

.

It is God's rich GRACE that overflows from Jesus Christ into our lives. Join me tomorrow as we look at this phrase a little deeper!

.

SCRIPTURE PHRASE:

"For the law was given through Moses; GRACE and TRUTH came through Jesus Christ."

.

COMMENT:

I spent some time last night back in the Old Testament. I reminded myself that since Jesus was there at creation, Grace and Truth must have been in Genesis.

.

Evidence? Blessing!

.

The word "grace" is not used in the book of Genesis, but the words bless, blessing, blessed, and blesses do appear 404 times in Genesis. (New American Standard Version - NASB). The WORD shows, that since the beginning of time, God-THE ONE AND ONLY, has poured out one blessing after another on creation.
