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... PASS IT ON...


I spoke of my mentor and friend this week on GratiTuesday. She was my Granny! Yes, God made us family two ways. First, she was the mother of my mother - my maternal grandmother. Second, she was my big sister in Christ. I saw the Be-attitudes of Jesus in her:


1. She understood who she was in the family of God and humbly submitted to the One who was in control. BLESSED are the poor in spirit for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.


2. She knew of her sinfulness and would say to me that there were things she wished she would have not done or done differently. BLESSED are those who mourn for they will be comforted.


3. She was a strong women who gave the reins of her life to God and let Him lead her and her children in a daily walk with Jesus, even though her husband (my grandfather) chose not to walk that walk during the child raising years. BLESSED are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.


4. She wanted to know what was right in God's eyes, so she studied her Bible with the desire to obey what she learned. BLESSED are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.

5. She had the reputation as the "chicken soup lady" who adopted her neighborhood as her responsibility. When families were sick or had challenges, she'd show up at their door to help AND bring with her a pot of chicken soup. BLESSED are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

6. She had intentions that were pure, yet she oftened rubbed people the wrong way. She was known for "telling it like she saw it". She often saw a situation as black and white or right and wrong. God knew her heart. BLESSED are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

7. She desired for all mankind to make peace with their God. Her life was lived in such a way that neighbors became christians as well as her husband (after she had raised 3 kids in the LORD and had grandchildren). BLESSED are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God.
