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."

CHERISH THE TREASURE... CHOOSE FAITH AND FORGIVENESS...

TRANSFORMING THURSDAY






What a treasure! Jesus not only forgives me, but He models how I must forgive others. Easier said than done. Jesus, You are an incredible example of inner strength!



In our marriage seminar this last weekend, the speaker discussed "not forgiving" as a poison to the person who does not forgive. It is unhealthy (and downright deadly) for body, mind, soul, and spirit to hold on to unforgiveness.

Over the last few days I have had continual opportunity to be impatient, frustrated, angry, and even furious with various people. It did not take long for me to get a knot in my stomach and feel the need to tell it like it is to more than a few people. But why go at it with that attitude?



Not always, but often, people "do not know what they do! Not always, but often, people have "no clue"! We can injure each other with our actions, our words, our ingratitude, and our forgetfulness. Sometimes forgiveness means having a loving dialog with the other person. Sometimes the other person is not ready for that discussion or even clueless as to what they did. In such a case - FORGIVE AND MOVE ON!



SIGH! Easier said than done! Yet, "I don't wanna', but I'm a gonna'!"



At home today, with our husbands and children, let's cherish the treasure and choose forgiveness.



Out and about today? Let's do the same! I certainly don't need any more toxins in my body than I already have.



I forgive! I choose to count my blessings and not my troubles!






FAITH

Fixes my eyes on JESUS


Hebrews 12:2-3


“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.”



FAITH

Assures me

of what I hope for!


Hebrews 11:1


“Now FAITH is being sure

of what we hope for

and certain of what we do not see.”



FAITH

says,

"I don’t wanna’

but I’m a gonna’!"




Hebrews 11:3-40



“By FAITH we understand that the universe


was formed at GOD's command…




6 And without FAITH,


it is impossible to please GOD,




because anyone who comes to Him


must believe that He exists


and that He rewards those


who earnestly seek Him…


by FAITH men conquered Kingdoms…


administered justice…


gained what was promised;


shut the mouths of lions,


quenched flames…


escaped the sword…


weakness turned to strength…


became powerful in battle… "




By FAITH, I choose to forgive!
