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 FILL US AND BLESS US...

.
There comes a time that each person is literally down and out like a cast sheep waiting for the shepherd to come to the rescue. The sheep is dependent on the love of the shepherd to come along and use His rod and staff to flip the sheep out of the situation it is in. This perspective for a cast sheep is a big reality check.


.
He is ready for the shepherd to take control.
.

.
The last two Wednesdays, we have worked at memorizing Psalms 63:1-3:
.
O God,
You are my God,
earnestly I seek You;
my soul thirsts for You,
my body longs for You,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
.
2 I have seen You
in the sanctuary
and beheld Your power
and Your glory.
.
3 Because Your love
is better than life,
my lips will glorify You.
.
I have a new reframe of these verses since last week. I believe that there are now people in Japan who for the first time are considering God because they have found themselves in a wet and "weary land where there is not water." I am praying that this terrible tragedy will:
  • bring the nation of Japan face to face with Jesus Christ
  • cause them to call upon the LORD, as their Good Shepherd, who can rescue them
  • enlighten people to see that each one can be a sanctuary for the Living God
  • bring whole families to an understanding of the love of God
  • bless and fill those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (Matthew 5:6)

.


Once each person understands the amazing rescue provided by our Savior and Friend, it is easy to say these words over and over again:

.
I will praise You as long as I live,

and in Your name I will lift up my hands.

My soul will be satisfied

as with the richest of foods;

with singing lips my mouth will praise You.

.
