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."

ALL THE WAY MY SAVIOR LEADS ME... BEAUTFIFUL AND BLESSED...

MEDITATION MONDAY
.

So who designs and carries out a butterfly's transformation? The butterfly? It's maker? Both? I'm not a butterfly expert. I have observed them. I have been to The Butterfly Palace in Branson, Missouri. What I do know about butterflies, I've used to make application to my own life:

  • If at any time during this pre-designed transformation process the butterfly decides that she can't take it anymore, she's going to get hurt. Flapping her wings and "kicking and screaming" when she's only half way through the transformation cycle will only result in broken wings, severed appendages, and possibly death. If she survives the process while "kicking and screaming" she will most probably have life long scars.


.
The butterfly that allows for the pre-designed transformation process to take it's course is wise!
.
When it happens, the results are beautiful and blessed!

So, who creates a piece of pottery designed for a specific purpose that will be sturdy enough to serve it's purpose well? What if that "pot in the making" could talk back?

  • "Don't pinch me!"
  • "What do you think you're doing to me?"
  • "Do you know what you're doing?"
  • "Leave me alone!"
.
If the pot's cries were honored with no more pinching, no more work, no following wisdom to do what is best, then the pot would never be finished or be able to fulfll it's purpose. A wise pot will allow the designer to do His work.
.
When it happens, the results are beautiful and blessed!

So, who trains an amazing young horse to become a champion? How do the owner and trainer help the horse to be:
  • spirited, yet obedient?
  • unleashed, yet controlled?
  • powerful, yet gentle?

When it happens, the results are beautiful and blessed!

Our 8 month old grandson is so observant. He seems to be taking everything in as he quietly watches those around him. He studied Pops and me a lot last week when he visited. I pray that as he gets older that he will see that his "Gigi" lets God be God:

  • She knows that life is not about her... life is about God! She gives up her will for the Father's will - (FATHER, INTO THY HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT!) "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven."
  • She's sorry for her sins, begs and receives forgiveness, as she lovingly and longingly grieves for the souls of others. (FATHER FORGIVE THEM FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO!) "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted."
  • She has now given up her will for the Father's will. She's been convicted by His love and holiness and wants to follow Him. She's given Him her heart. Now, she's ready to give Him the reins of her life without kicking, screaming, and complaining. (NOT MY WILL, BUT THINE!) "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."
.
Let's meditate on the first 3 Be-attitudes. Here are 3 words to get us thinking more:
  1. DEAD
  2. BLED
  3. LED

When it happens, the results are beautiful and blessed!
