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."

MY FATHER'S EYES... HE WANTS ME TO HAVE THE ATTITUDE OF CHRIST...



TRANSFORMING THURSDAY


When I think of the word transform, I quickly think of two concepts -

1. Change

2. A power source

Recently, I've been having a really hard time just being at peace or being a peacemaker. Instead of transforming in a positive manner, I've been seeing too many negative transformations in my life. How could someone who writes a blog about transformation in Christ be having challenges with it?

I've noticed, this year, that whatever our topic on the blog, that becomes my greatest challenge for the month. My mother in love is known to say, "How can someone teach unless that person has walked a mile in another's moccasins?" One thing I can say, is that if you are struggling with any of Christ's Be-attitudes growing in your life, I have been struggling, too. I understand.


Here is what I've determined - I need to begin each morning with an attitude check... the kind where I go to the POWER SOURCE (my Heavenly Father) and ask His help for CHRIST-LIKE CHANGE in my life!

1. God, help me remember that today

is not about me - it's about You -

Blessed are the poor in spirit.



2. God, I am so sorry for my sin,

the sins of others,

and the way we disappoint You.

Yet, I'm so thankful for Your forgiveness!

Blessed are those who mourn.



3. God, please lead me this day.

I give You the reins of my life!

Blessed are the meek.



4. God, keep me hungry and thirsty

for Your ways today.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness.



5. God, teach me to look with

new eyes of mercy

at each person

who I come in contact with today.

Blessed are the merciful.



6. God, keep my heart pure

and free from evil thoughts of any kind.

Blessed are the pure in heart.



7. God, give me Your peace in the circumstances of life,

so that I can truly help others to have peace, too.

Blessed are the peace-makers.




As I finish writing this post, one of the verses I have taped above my computer floated down onto the keyboard. Hmmmm... it says,


"The LORD your God is with you,


He is mighty to save.


He will take great delight in you.


He will quiet you with His love.


He will rejoice over you with singing."


Zephaniah 3:17



Tomorrow, on my FAMILY FELLOWSHIP FRIDAY post, I want to share how my family has/is helping me to make some additional positive changes.
