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."

TAKEN BY LOVE... HIS LOVE... HIS GRACE HAS BROUGHT ME SAFE THUS FAR...

.
When one member of a family hurts or grieves, we all hurt/grieve. Yesterday, I shared of a young daddy who, at the age of 31, went home to the LORD on Tuesday. He left behind his young pregnant wife, Veronica, and two pre-schoolers.
.
I was listening to our theme song a little while ago as I thought of this young family, deeply in love with their LORD:
.
You’ve taken me by LOVE
You’ve taken me by GRACE
You’ve taken me away
I can’t resist because
You’ve taken my heart.
.
Then, as I continued to listen... a few songs down the playlist... Darlene Zschech sang these words:
.
"...was GRACE that brought me safe thus far
and GRACE will lead me Home..."
.
There are some people who have obviously been taken by the love of their Savior and have a remarkable understanding of the spiritual journey at an early age. Today, I'm thinking of and praying for two young mommies who deeply love their LORD: Veronica and Jenny. Jenny and her husband, Eric, are missionaries in Bolivia. They have two young children. Jenny is the daughter of Kent and Sharla (Steve's sister) Marcum. Here is an excerpt of a letter from Jenny this week:
.
Friends and Family,
.
We are sad to share with you the news of a diagnosis we received concerning my health. We had some tests run in Cochabamba on a lump I (Jenny) had discovered on my leg. The results from a biopsy we had done came to us last night, with a diagnosis of a malignant Liposarcoma. We are now praying for direction and trying to make quick decisions on the treatment of this cancer. Please keep us in your prayers, this has been an unexpected shock, and we don’t really have a plan. We will be going to the States to have surgery and treat the cancer. We will let you know more when we get things figured out. Thank you for your prayers regarding this....
.
...The most difficult part about this is having to leave our home and the work and our team that we have grown to love so much. We hope that we can return soon.
Thank you and we love you.
Love the Reyes

To make more connections with Jenny and Eric Reyes and their work in Bolivia, you can check their blog over on the right sidebar under Sikes' family blogs. Thank you for remembering Jenny in your prayers to the Father.
.
If you are a young mommy and you are reading this, please know that I have prayed for you today, too. Today, let's stand together in His Love... His Grace... His Truth...
