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."

JESUS GAVE HER WATER... LIVING WATER...

MEDITATION MONDAY

.

Our beattitude, for the month, from Matthew 5:6 says,

.

"Blessed are those who

hunger and thirst

for righteousness,

for they will be filled."

.

.

In John 6, Jesus says in verse 47-48,

"I tell you the truth,

he who believes has everlasting life.

I am the bread of life."

.

In John 4, Jesus is standing at a well in Samaria talking to a Samaritan woman. She asks Jesus, "Where can You get this LIVING WATER?" Jesus replies,

"Everyone who drinks this water

will be thirsty again,

but whoever drinks the water I give him

will never thirst.

Indeed, the water I give him

will become in him

a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

.

Last week, we said that our righteousness is not our own...

Jesus is OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

John 4 & 6 tell us that...

Jesus is the LIVING BREAD.

Jesus is the LIVING WATER.

.

With this in mind, let's look at our beattitude for the month again. With confidence I can say that it is Jesus who fills us up. It is Jesus who gives us His righteousness to continually cleanse us from our sins.

.

I shared on Saturday about a group of KINGDOM SEEKERS. It happened again yesterday! Another young KINGDOM SEEKER said to a large group of people, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."

.

She, at a very young age, is a student of the Bible - God's word. In reading and studying scripture, she learned that she needed to:



  • keep coming to God's word to understand God's WORD.


  • come to the water... to get the LIVING WATER in her life.

.


It's like in Acts 8 when Philip was reading scripture from the prophets and a man, referred to as "the eunuch", asked Philip,


.


"Tell me, please, who is the prophet talking about,

himself or someone else?"

Then Philip began with that

very passage of Scripture

and told him the good news about Jesus.

As they traveled along the road,

they came to some water and the eunuch said,

"Look, here is water.

Why shouldn't I be baptized?"

And he gave orders to stop the chariot.

Then both Philip and the eunuch

went down into the water

and Philip baptized him.

When they came up out of the water,

the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away,

and the eunuch did not see him again,

but went on his way rejoicing."

.

.


Yesterday, this young lady who had read from the scriptures was convicted to be buried in baptism with Jesus because of her faith in Jesus Christ. She knows that it is only He who is her Savior and LORD. . .
