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."

TURN MY HEART, OH LORD.... I'LL LET YOU BE GOD...


This past week, we have had our little 8 month old grandson in our home. I've thought a lot about verse 50 of our scripture memory, "His mercy extends to those who fear Him, from generation to generation."
.
In this verse, the word "fear" may be missed in translation if we have a negative connection to that word.
.
This type of "fear" in scripture means "a healthy repect or reverence for..." When standing at the foot of a giant waterfall, I experience it with my senses. Hopefully, I am not frightened enough to run the other way, but do need a healthy enough respect for what it is and what it can do that I don't jump into it. Instead I choose to take it all in:
  • SIGHT: I see the beauty, grandeur, and majesty of water rushing from above... over and down the cliff....

  • HEARING: I hear the power of the rushing water: loud, strong, constant...

  • TOUCH: I walk downstream and cup my hand in the cool rushing waters.

  • TASTE: I taste the water in my hand - refreshing water that has just cascaded over those rocks.

  • SMELL: I breathe deeply as I take in the freshness of the clean air that has been purified by the water.
.
Do I reverently take God in with all my senses? Do I know my place? Am I too proud to let God be God? Am I passing on a healthy understanding of my God to the next generation and the next generation? Mary's words give us an insight that she was able to do just that: Humbly Let God be God! She knew that she was just His instrument. Therefore, He could use her to help change the world.
.
.
MEMORY VERSES FOR THE MONTH:
.
Luke 1:46-51
.
  • 46 And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the LORD

  • 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,

  • 48 for He has been mindful of the humble state of His servant.

  • From now on all generations will call me BLESSED,

  • 49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me-

  • HOLY is His name.

  • 50 His mercy extends to those who fear Him,

  • from generation to generation. .

  • 51 He has performed mighty deeds with His arm;

  • He has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.

.

Dear LORD,

Today, we humble ourselves. We put you in the driver's seat of our lives. You are not our co-pilot, You are the pilot! We want to be meek... not fearful.... not weak.... just meek... We give you the reins of our lives...
