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."

I AM BLESSED... GOD SHOWS UP...

MEDITATION MONDAY


Praise to God for a Living Hope!!!!!!!!

Yesterday, "God showed up" in a more accentuated way than usual in our Sunday morning service. My husband preached a sermon entitled, "I ALMOST QUIT!"

On this christian journey, there are things that often get in the way of victorious christian living and our ability to see the blessings we have all around us. God always shows up, yet the Devil would like nothing more that for us to not realize that and become...




  • Discouraged


  • Despaired


  • Distressed


  • Disillusioned


  • Distracted


to the point that we quit.



Steve's wonderful words of encouragement with a reading of 1 Peter 1:3-9:



3 "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!


In His great mercy He has given us new birth


into a living hope


through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,




4 and into an inheritance that can


never perish, spoil or fade.


This inheritance is kept in heaven for you,


5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power


until the coming of the salvation


that is ready to be revealed in the last time.




6 In all this you greatly rejoice,


though now for a little while


you may have had to suffer grief


in all kinds of trials.




7 These have come so that


the proven genuineness of your faith—


of greater worth than gold,


which perishes even though refined by fire—


may result in praise, glory and honor


when Jesus Christ is revealed.




8 Though you have not seen Him,


you love Him;


and even though you do not see Him now,


you believe in Him and are filled with


an inexpressible and glorious joy,




9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith,


the salvation of your souls."
