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."

BRIGHTLY BEAMS OUR FATHER'S MERCY... THROUGH US...

MEDITATION MONDAY


.

How does mankind get a clear and bright picture of Jesus? Yesterday, Steve asked us two questions in his sermon:

.

1. Is seeing believing?

.

2. Is believing seeing?

On the Sunday before His crucifixion, as Jesus came into Jerusalem, there were people who saw Him differently... different perspectives... multiple levels of seeing. ..




Seeing Jesus with eyes of NO FAITH were the Religious Leaders in Luke 19:39-44 - Perfect eyesight does not mean perfect insight!


Seeing Jesus with eyes of LITTLE FAITH were the Apostles in Matthew 20:17-28 (often looking at HIm asking, "What's in it for me?"); the Crowd in Matthew 21:8-11 (Curious! Asking, "What can He do?")


Seeing Jesus with eyes of GREAT FAITH were the Blind Men in Matthew 20:29-34; the Children in Matthew 21:14-17; and Mary in John 12:1-11


Seeing Jesus with eyes of NEW FAITH were the Greeks in John 12:20-26. They requested, "Sir, we wish to see Jesus..."


What was it that they saw? He was a man who, like the seed in John 12, had died to Himself...


A humble man


A man who mourned over sin


A meek/gentle man


A man hungering and thirsting to be righteous


A man of mercy


By faith... great faith... renewed faith... let us believe in Jesus and upon believing and seeing, let's allow Him to transform us into His likeness...


Humble women


Women who mourn over sin


Meek/gentle women


Women hungering/thirsting for righteousness


Women of mercy


BRIGHTLY BEAMS OUR FATHER'S MERCY... THROUGH US...
