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."

THE LIGHTHOUSE...






This week we're looking a little more at our role as "lighthouses" for Jesus. Many of us have just lived through an earthquake and a hurricane. A clerk at the grocery store visited with me briefly, saying that there sure were a lot of people complaining, as they came through her line. She commented that it was refreshing for people to come through who didn't have some kind of a complaint. There's something about complaining that can just bring others down. Light? NOT!






We're spending some time, this week, looking at FORGIVENESS, especially how it relates to our transformed lives and being light to a dark world. Today, let's read through a few scriptures that Lori and I would like to share, beginning with this month's scripture memory focus:


Matthew 5

13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.

15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.

16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.




A little later in Matthew 6:14-15, Jesus addresses forgiveness in His Sermon on the Mount:

"For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins."






Scriptures that Lori shared with us on Monday, can be considered further before she addresses some transformational thoughts tomorrow about forgiveness.





Mark 11:25,26
"Whenever you stand praying, FORGIVE, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also FORGIVE you your transgressions. "But if you do not FORGIVE, neither will your Father who is in heaven FORGIVE your transgressions."

Matthew 18:21,22
Then Peter came and said to Him, "Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I FORGIVE him? Up to seven times?" Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.
