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... THROUGH HIS SPIRIT...

MEDITATION MONDAY


I have had a very full, inspirational, and BLESSED weekend. It's quite possible that some of you have not. As God continues to work with us, in us, through us, and around us, life can still be hard, but God is still so good.


Friday evening Steve and I were in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center for a prayer and praise service. We gave praise and prayed to the ONE Who is able! He is able to be glorified by us through very difficult circumstances in our personal lives . He is able to change the city of Philadelphia, in spite of horrendous challenges/circumstances that permeate this "city of love and liberty". It was a time of great encouragement as we were led in thought by Jim Cymbala. He gave us "fresh wind and fresh fire" for the days ahead. He called us to be a "house of prayer" for this city, our nation, the lost and and especially for our children.


Saturday from 2:30 p.m. until midnight, I was involved in the wedding of a beautiful young couple. It was a great time of celebration for this young man in our church family who had lost his mother when he was very young. Matt and his sisters have been been taught by his father and paternal grandfather to love the LORD and live for Him. Saturday, Matt married Rachel whose older sister used these statements to describe this petite, home-schooled, LORD loving bride:


"The truth is, Rachel, that pound-for-pound you've got more grit and determination than anyone I know. Pound-for-pound you are the most loyal friend I could ever find. Pound-for-pound you stick to your convictions more than anyone else. Maybe when we were kids, you did need me to look after you. But since we've become, dare I say it? Adults? You've given me more reason to look up to you than to look out for you. I am so proud..."



Sunday morning, Steve's sermon challenged us to be people not only who were worshippers in TRUTH, but in SPIRIT.



John 4:24 says,


"God is spirit,


and His worshipers must worship


in the Spirit and in truth.”



The more we learn to keep step with the Spirit, worshipping Him with our lives, allowing Him to permeate our hearts, we will become an integral part of His plan. Steve shared that the more each of us are in tune with God's Spirit, God will use us to meet each others needs. He shared about a time when a young woman listened to the Holy Spirit to encourage him in a powerful way. You can read about it and hear Alexis Joi HERE.



Last night, Steve and I went to Lancaster, PA for an evening at the American Music Theatre. My spirit has been encouraged in multiple ways this weekend. It culminated by being inspired, challenged, and encouraged by THE MARTINS. After pausing the Playlist above, I encourage you to listen to one of my favorite songs of the evening HERE.
