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."

BLESSED BE YOUR NAME... I WANT TO BE LIKE YOU...



Throughout this entire year, our key focus will be Christ's "sermon on the mount". We'll spend the bigger portion of our time in Matthew 5. Each month we will add a new section of His sermon to memorize. This week, let's sit down with Jesus on that mountain and listen clearly to His opening statement. Before we do, join me at taking a look at the Mount of Beatitudes.
.
View 1: Sitting down below the mount (we might consider it a big hill) is where many scholars believe that Jesus sat as He looked up at all the people sitting on the mountain.
.

.
View 2: Sitting on the "mount" the people may have had a view like this as they looked out over the Sea of Galilee (behind Jesus).
.


.
View 3: A different perspective from higher up!
.


.
Jesus' words from His sermon on the Mount of Beatitudes encapsulate the message of THE BLESSED LIFE... the life of a christian. He shares the secrets. He shares in Matthew 5-7 how we can be like Him.
.
The following words, at the beginning of Matthew 5, are what we will memorize and talk about on this blog throughout the month of January. I challenge us to memorize them... to put them on our hearts so that we may understand a foundational concept of THE BLESSED LIFE.
.
Matthew 5:1-3
.
Now when He saw the crowds,
He went up on a mountainside
and sat down.
His disciples came to Him,
and He began to teach them, saying:
"BLESSED are the POOR IN SPIRIT,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
.
Work on memorizing these words today and come back tomorrow as we discuss the transformative power of these verses.
.
