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."

MORE LIKE YOU...A PECULIAR PEOPLE...


I'm grateful, Jesus, for You patiently working with me to become more like You. This whole idea of "taking up my cross and following You" is certainly not for the faint of heart.



I realize that it isn't a one time thing, but a daily committment.


It seems that part of the reason this "walk" is hard, is because the world thinks it's peculiar... AND it seems so opposite to the common sense of the world. Yet, I am aware of Peter's words in 1 Peter 2:9:


But ye are a chosen generation,


a royal priesthood,


an holy nation,


a peculiar people;


that ye should shew forth the praises of Him


who hath called you out of darkness


into His marvellous light...


.



The world says, "Be rich!"


You say, "Be poor..."


.
The world says, "Laugh... party..."

You say, "Mourn..."



.




The world says, "Meek is weak..."

You say, "When you are weak, you are strong..."



.



The world says, "Grab all you can..."

You say, "Hunger and thirst..."

.




The world says, "Do whatever it takes..."

You say, "Be pure..."






The world says, "Fight for what is yours..."

You say, "Live peacably..."







The world says, "Winner takes all..."

You say, "Blessed are the persecuted..."



.

.


The world says, "Live now..."


You say, "Die now,


so that you may have LIFE EVERLASTING."
.




You've made it clear how to be more like You.



You've made it clear how to live The Blessed Life.



Thank You, Jesus.
