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."

CREATE IN ME A CLEAN HEART... NO BITTER ROOT...



As we've journeyed through the be-attitudes, since the first of this year, I have been challenged by whichever one is our current topic. Needless to say, it's been convicting!


1. In January, I was reminded that this world is not about me. Humbling myself to the One who is in control, must be a daily mind set - "Blessed are the POOR IN SPIRIT..."

2. In February, I came face to face with my humanity as I considered my sinful state and how it is only my LORD and Savior who can forgive my sins and lead me in the right direction. "Blessed are those who MOURN... Blessed are the MEEK....".


3. In March, I knew that it was time for me to re-cultivate an appetite for Jesus... for His righteousness. "Blessed are those who HUNGER AND THIRST FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS..."

4. In April, as I struggled with giving others second, third, fourth, and more chances... I was reminded once again how I needed to step it up, "BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL..."

5. This month's be-attitude has been hard! Purity! Holiness! A Clean Heart! It's hard for that to happen when a person is bitter. Somewhere along this journey, I have become bitter about a few things. Conquering this battle is not easy. Yet, to move on to the next be-attitude (peace), I must remove the bitter root in order to live this verse, "BLESSED ARE THE PURE IN HEART..." These verses in Hebrews 12 are helping:


.
14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone


and to be holy;


without holiness no one will see the Lord.


15 See to it that no one falls short


of the grace of God


and that no bitter root grows up


to cause trouble and defile many..."


Another thing, that is so helpful to me, is the encouragement that I get from the lives of other believers who so obviously have chosen the LORD to reign and rule in their lives. This week, I posted about some of my christian family who have been such an encouragement to me. I hope you have time to link to their amazing stories HERE .
