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... WHATEVER YOU DO...

.
It's wonderful to be a mother! It's overwhelming to be a mother! I often ponder how Mary felt raising a large family. I've studied that the first "prayer" Hebrew women taught their children was, "Father, into Thy hands I commit my spirit." Mary had quite an influence on her son! His last words in Luke 23:46:
.
"Father, into Your hands I commit my spirit."

.
Last night I was texting back and forth with 3 of our 4 young adult children. At the same time, the fourth one walked into the room. Blessing on top of blessing!
.
When the kids were growing up we prayed with them often and memorized scripture. We had a contract that was on a big poster that hung in a hallway off the kitchen. The kids signed it. The top of the contract had these ancient words of scripture:

Colossians 3:17
  • "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him."

As smaller version of the contract also had this one added:

Colossians 3:23-24

  • "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving."
.
In other words,
"Father, into Your hands I commit my spirit."
