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."

MERCY CAME RUNNING... IN THE FORM OF THE BODY OF CHRIST....

. Our friends in Japan need our mercy. They will continue to need it for many days to come. Those who have survived face much loss, destruction, and sorrow. .

  • Our Japanese friends have been rescued from one or more storms. Who will rescue them from the over the top storms of life that so many are now experiencing?

  • Who will provide comfort for the broken hearted of Japan?

  • Who will give a hand-up to so many who are down and out in Japan?

  • Who will patiently wait, pray, work, and stand in the gap for the lost of Japan - who are in need of a Savior?

  • Who will help to heal their hearts, minds, bodies, and souls in the face of so much loss?

.


True, complete, eternal healing comes with the cross of Jesus! May the living breathing body of Christ, the church

show the people of Japan the love and mercy of our LIVING LORD. There are so many people worldwide who worship the created instead of the Creator. There are those who pray to a statue because they don't understand the height, depth, and breadth of the love of Jesus Christ.

.


In the past few weeks, christians have worked tirelessly as the hands and feet of Jesus to run with mercy to the people of Japan. We are the body of Christ! A big thank you to Jon, Joel, Ben, Chad, Dwight and their families! Thank you for getting us jumpstarted; for keeping us informed!


. .


The children in our church family are leading the way in collecting thousands of dollars to care for the Japanese.


.


Please join us in working together to continue to run with mercy as the body of Christ! As a mother, lead your children in missions of mercy! Lemonade stands, hot chocolate stands, selling toys or services, and asking for donations are all ways for your children to participate. One of our elementary school girls told her grandmother, in another state, about our effort to collect money for Japan. The grandmother collected $2,000 from her church and sent it to us. Another of our girls spoke to her principal and the principal is on board for the school to now help. These young girls have been the hands and feet of Jesus... voices crying out to prepare the way for the LORD. . .



Colossians 1:15-18 says,


15 He is the image of the invisible God,


the firstborn over all creation.


16 For by Him all things were created:


things in heaven and on earth,


visible and invisible,


whether thrones or powers


or rulers or authorities;


all things were created


by Him and for Him.


17 He is before all things,


and in Him all things hold together.


18 And He is the head of the body,


the church;


He is the beginning and


the firstborn from among the dead,


so that in everything


He might have the supremacy.

. . It is not just Japan who needs the loving mercy of our LORD! It is every people, every tribe, every nation... Recently I received an email from a sister in Christ who had been on business to India. Her message read:

See attached photo.


I am guessing you can find a way to use this. :)


Now here is "the rest of the story."


I have seen a lot of "religious" bumper stickers


but had never seen this before -


displayed on the back of a car window.


(It does not belong to anyone at Pitman!)


Unusual?


Well, considering this was on a car window in....


INDIA........


YES!


India is...



  • 80% Hindu

  • 13% Muslim

  • only 2% Christian (primarily Catholic).


.


Oh, how this message needs to be understood by the people of the world. Today, I pray especially for the people of Japan and India... that they come to know the love and mercy of our LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST.
