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."

CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST... HIS-STORY...

TRANSFORMING THURSDAY


Are you aware that Jesus was present at creation? Have you wrapped your mind around the fact that Jesus is God? Did you know that the Bible is the inspired word of God that tells...


His - Story


GENESIS and REVELATION



The Bible is a library of 66 books that tell One Story.
The last part of the 66th book, Revelation,
connects the reader with


the first part of the 1st book, Genesis.



1. The First Words in Genesis 1:1 –

“In the beginning God created the heavens and earth.”


Almost the Last Words in Revelation 23:1 –

“I saw a new heaven and a new earth.”


2. “The gathering together of the waters He called the Sea.” Gen 1:10

“And the Sea is no more.” Rev. 21:1





3. “The Darkness He called night.” Gen. 1:5

“There shall be no night there.” Rev. 21:25



4. “God made the two great lights.” Gen. 1:16

“The city had no need of the sun nor the moon…” Rev. 21:23



5. “In the day you sat thereof you shall surely die.” Gen. 2:17

“Death shall be no more.” Rev. 21:4


6. “I will greatly multiply your pain.” Gen. 3:16


“Neither shall there be pain anymore.” Rev. 21:4


7. “Cursed is the ground for your sake.” Gen. 3:17


“There shall be no more curse.” Rev. 22:3



8. Satan appears as deceiver of mankind. Gen. 3: 1, 4


Satan tormented forever. Rev. 20:10
9. The Tree of Life. Gen. 3:22-24


The Tree of Life. Rev. 22:2



10. They were driven from God’s presence. Gen. 3:24


“They shall see His face.” Rev. 22:4


11. Man’s first home was by a river. Gen 2:10


Man’s eternal home will be beside a river. Rev. 22:1





Beyond the fact that the first and last books of the Bible "match", the Bible is full of transforming connections as the golden thread of His-story weaves through all 66 books. I was reminded of this again last night as we studied more in the book of Revelation with our teacher, John Mark Hicks. For the first time I noted connections between the Be-attitudes (in Matthew 5) and the last part of Revelation. Here are just a few of those connections:


Revelation 21 -


heaven... wipes away every tear...


thirst no more... God's son...




Revelation 22 -


Blessed... righteous...


reward.... thirst no more...
