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."

HE'S STILL WORKING ON ME... BY HIS SPIRIT....



This past week provided a fresh awakening for this tired soul. I am a deep believer in the transformational power of God's Holy Spirit in my life. One of the lists over on the right sidebar of this blog has been there a long time. It is the "short list" of what the Holy Spirit does in our lives. On Friday and Saturday Steve told me that God kept putting the Spirit in front of Him all week. People were asking questions about the Spirit in his Bible studies, he'd been handed a book about the Holy Spirit, he'd been asked to listen to a tape about the Holy Spirit, we attended a prayer and praise service at the Pennsylvania Convention Center on Friday night that was Spirit-led / filled... Steve's lesson on Sunday morning was the first in a series on the Holy Spirit...


As I pondered how I am allowing the Holy Spirit to currently work in my own life, I was deeply aware of how God's Spirit had worked just in the last week. In fact, in order to be LIGHT OF THE WORLD and SALT OF THE EARTH, God's Spirit must be in the details.


The HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD... interceded for Transformed Mom, Kristy, last Tuesday morning when at an IEP meeting for her son with Pervasive Developmental Disorder, the school district made a dramatic 180 degrees turn to meet his needs that the family requested. I am grateful to have seen the process of trust, prayer, tears, frustration, persistence, prayers, endurance, patience, kindness, and victory.


The HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD... moves and inspires Transformed Mom Kelly to plan Bible classes for our 3rd and 4th graders in a way that is continuing to convict, empower, and transform her.


THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD... comforts and abides with our family as we go through great valleys with our daughter Jessica's chronic pain. This last two weeks Jessica's pain has been horrific due to the all time lows of barometric pressure here. With the barometric pressure higher today, God has sustained her with a positive attitude and a clear mind, as she is back to exercising this morning.


THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD... blesses me with times of refreshment, like this Sunday night when my hubby took me to Lancaster, PA to the American Music Theater. It was a time of much thought, inspiration, and Holy Spirit conviction as we listened to the Martins sing songs like this:








What about you? How can you finish one of these statements to show your gratitude for the work of God's Spirit in your life?

but by my Spirit,’ says the LORD Almighty.
