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."

WHAT A FRIEND WE HAVE IN JESUS.... YEP! THE HOLY SPIRIT MAKES IT EVIDENT...

MEDITATION MONDAY






Usually, every Sunday morning at the Pitman Road church of Christ, there are obvious Holy Spirit connections. Yesterday morning, to those who had just come from our ladies class called, "Faithful Friends" we saw those Holy Spirit connections loud and clear. They were in the songs, the scriptures, the communion talk, and the sermon. Here are a few:






1. Our focus on fixing our eyes on Jesus to forge strong spiritual friendships was affirmed as we sang several songs, led by Dwight, including: "Faithful love flowing down from a thorn covered crown, makes me whole, saves my soul, washes whiter than snow... Faithful love calms each fear, reaches down, dries each tear, holds my hand when I can not stand on my own. Faithful love from above... " Yep! We'd talked about that in class!






2. Our class focus on having "spiritual eyes" was affirmed when Glynn shared via his communion talk about a lady who he ministered to via his hospice job. This lady was blind, but could see clearly the spiritual world. Her prayer was that she could see completely once Jesus took her home. Yep! Seeing with spiritual eyes that have fixed themselves on Jesus!






3. In class, I shared about how we are not teaching our children to think at a higher level. The simple ability of asking questions and/or answering the hard questions will stifle their search for the meaning of life... for God. In Dan's sermon, he shared that the church's children are leaving church at an alarming rate. We must not focus on, "We are right and they are wrong!" We must focus on Jesus, with the attitude of these 10 words: We're sorry! We were wrong! Forgive us! We love you!

Yep! Jesus articulated how we are to be LIGHT and SALT to this world, "Blessed are the poor in spirit... those who mourn... the meek... those who hunger and thirst for righteousness... the merciful.... the pure in heart.... the peacemakers... "

4. There were many more connections throughout the service, yesterday. Yet, the most profound was that at the end, the scripture that came up on the screen until the service was over were the verses that our class has focused on the last 4 weeks:



Hebrews 12



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."




Yep, we are soooooo Holy Spirit
