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."

LORD, I WANT TO BE JUST LIKE YOU... PUT A SONG ON MY HEART...



TRANSFORMING THURSDAY

.
Our scripture focus for yesterday says,
.
Because You are my help,
I sing in the shadow of Your wings.
.
.
Have you ever asked God to put a song on your heart? When I've been singing praises to Him -my life just goes better!
.
I travel throughout the southern part of our state supervising student teachers. The CD player in my car is on the blink and I'm not techy enough to remember my Ipod each day. I've noticed that on the days that I talk to God, as I'm driving, that those days go okay, but I tend to get a somewhat negative with my prayers.
.
If I pray and then ask God to put a song on my heart, those days just go better. I've been making an attempt to not shuffle through all the songs that I know. I just wait on Him. I automatically go throughout each week singing our blog theme song. Yet, the song that God often puts on my heart comes from years ago... even as far back as my childhood.
.
Yesterday, it was:
Face to face with Christ, my Savior,
Face to face—what will it be?
When with rapture I behold Him,
Jesus Christ who died for me.
.
Face to face I shall behold Him,
Far beyond the starry sky;
Face to face in all His glory,
I shall see Him by and by!
.
Only faintly now, I see Him,
With the darkling veil between,
But a blessed day is coming,
When His glory shall be seen.
.
What rejoicing in His presence,
When are banished grief and pain;
When the crooked ways are straightened,
And the dark things shall be plain.
Face to face! O blissful moment!
Face to face—to see and know;
Face to face with my Redeemer,
Jesus Christ who loves me so.
.
God created us to have a song in our heart. Lately, I often find myself singing this one as I travel down the road:
.
There's within my heart a melody
Jesus whispers sweet and low:
Fear not, I am with thee,
peace, be still,
in all of life's ebb and flow.
.
Refrain:
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
sweetest name I know,
fills my every longing,
keeps me singing as I go.
.
Which song will you allow God to place on your heart today?



Jesus, I want to be just like You!
.
Please put a song on my heart today.

.
~BLESSED~
