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."

MY REDEEMER... JESUS CHRIST... I CHOOSE TO FIX MY EYES ON HIM....




TRANSFORMING THURSDAY


The people of Rio de Janeiro have a constant visual reminder above them. With arms spread wide, the Cristo Redentor statue can be seen from all over the city. People come across oceans to be able to see this man made wonder with their own eyes.

The statue stands on the 2,310-foot Corcovado mountain. This man made image of Jesus Christ rises another 100 feet, its arms extending nearly 92 feet from fingertip to fingertip. It weighs in at some 700 tons.


Although magnificent and thought provoking, there is nothing this statue can do for anyone who lives in the city or, for that matter, any of us. What humanity needs from Christ the Redeemer is the transformational power of His forgiveness... His grace... His faith... His redemption. This only comes from the living Christ the Redeemer who resides in heaven and inside every christian who has taken on His name. Those of us who are His people know that it is not in fixing our eyes on a statue, but FIXING OUR EYES ON JESUS... His life... His forgiveness... His grace... His faith... His redemption... His eternal love.... That gives us what we need.

This week, our Sunday morning ladies class is carrying around a scripture card to memorize and be encouraged by. It reads like this:


FAITH Fixes my eyes on JESUS – Heb 12:2-3

2 “Let us fix our eyes
on JESUS,
the AUTHOR
and PERFECTOR of our F.A.I.T.H.,


who for the joy set before Him


endured the cross,


scorning its shame…


sat down at the right hand of the throne of GOD.


3 Consider Him who endured


such opposition from sinful men,


so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
