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."

ANCIENT WORDS... TO LIGHT OUR WORLD...



Do you ever find yourself saying,
  • "I got nothing!", or

  • "I have nothing left." or
  • "I'm empty!"


I love the promises that fill Christ's beatitudes. Our beatitude for the month is Matthew 5:6 :

  • "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
  • for they will be filled."
Holy words long preserved
for our walk in this world,
They resound with God's own heart
Oh, let the Ancient words impart.
Words of Life, words of Hope
Give us strength, help us cope
In this world, where e'er we roam
Ancient words will guide us Home.
.
Ancient words ever true
Changing me, and changing you.
We have come with open hearts
Oh let the ancient words impart...
.


Yesterday morning, as our church family assembled on the LORD's Day, I could not get the people of Japan off of my mind. They need water, food, and shelter! Many are still searching for loved ones. They need hope! They need to be able to cope!
.
  • They need ancient words

  • They need THE WORD: Jesus Christ!

  • They need Jesus with skin on.
.

I have contact with some missionaries to Japan who are keeping us updated. One christian from the Sendai, Japan area sent this message:


どうぞ皆さん、神様を信じてお祈りください.

"Please, with faith in God, PRAY."
.

43 minutes ago, Debi posted that Akira Mawatari has been located. He is now safe! How did I learn this? I joined the FB page "Working and Praying for Japan earthquake victims!"

.

Join me in hungering and thirsting to "do the right thing"... to do "what Jesus would do" for the people of Japan... for the people of Haiti... for our neighbors...
.
Hunger and thirst to live the righteous life that only comes through Jesus Christ. He is OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
.
Yesterday, Dan reminded us that God loves to use fallen people. He loves to use broken people. God loves us and wants to use us for His glory.
.
The ancient words in us... THE WORD IN US... will fill us to light our world!
