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."

SO LONG SELF... IT'S TIME TO GROW UP...


TODAY'S POST COVERS 2 DAYS:
KETCHUP AND MUSTARD SATURDAY
Catch Up and Must Do
.
Which means that I need to post my Friday post here:
.

Do you know anyone who battles perfectionism? Is it one of your children? Your spouse? You? I've often heard people say, "I can't give myself to God until I get some things right."
.
Different members of our family battle perfectionism to different degrees and in different areas. What we keep having to remind ourselves of is that God wants us to give ourselves all over to Him... trash and all....don't wait to get our lives "in order and cleaned up" before saying, "Here I am LORD, again".
.
Before he was a teenager, one of our sons tried to convince me that perfectionism was a must to be pleasing to God. He took me to Christ's Sermon on the Mount where Jesus said, "Be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect."
.
Ah-ha! We'll talk about this several times this year. But just so you know, in the original language that statement interprets, "Be mature in Christ as your Heavenly Father is mature."
.
Don't wait for perfection to come your way before you give ALL OF YOUR SELF to Christ Jesus! It is IN HIM that we can GROW UP! These people understood:
