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 LOVE THE LORD... MEDITATION MONDAY...

As I consider how much Jesus loves me, I must consider my love for Him.  Life is so hard!  It's easy to raise a fist to God and say, "Why?"  or  "You betrayed me!"  The TRUTH is that He does know the answer to "WHY?" and He does not betray. 

Our God sees the little details of life, but He also sees the big picture.  Our God is LOVE and He asks the same of us.  When God came down and "dwelt among us" (John 1), He was the walking talking embodiment of LOVE.  He asks me to be the same!  In fact, He said it in the Old Testament and He said it in the New Testament:

  •   Deuteronomy 6:4-6   "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.5 L ove the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts."
  • Matthew 22:36-38  36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. "
What is this LOVE?  1 Corinthians 13 tells us:

"Love is patient,
love is kind.
love does not envy,
love does not boast,
love is not proud.

5 Love does not dishonor others,
love is not self-seeking,
love is not easily angered,
love keeps no record of wrongs.

6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

7 Love always protects,
Love always trusts,
Love always hopes,
Love always perseveres.

8 Love never fails.
But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a (wo)man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. "

I love You, LORD!
