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."

LOVE THE LORD: MEDITATION MONDAY AND GRATITUESDAY


(includes MEDITATION MONDAY)


This year, on this blog, our theme is J.O.Y.  This month, we looked at   "J" is for Jesus and His amazing agape / sacrificial love.  I am so grateful for His love and that He modeled it so clearly.

In February, on this blog, I'll focus on the "Y" of J.O.Y.   Out of gratitude to Jesus, love Yourself like Jesus does!   

Each year, I personally spend time in Christ's "Sermon on the Mount" - Matthew 5-7. It's hard to get past chapter 5 because of all the things Jesus shares about how the goal of a christian is to become like Him. 

 The last verse of chapter 5 is mind boggling, "Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. "

The word "perfect" in that verse translates to be like our word "mature". Want to be mature? The finished product? Like Jesus? Then, You and I need to be all those things that Jesus said before this summary verse.



We'll talk about it more tomorrow.  Today, with gratitude, let's  meditate on this: 




Do you love Yourself enough to mature to be like Jesus?  Let's prayerfully focus on "growing up in Him" for the month of February!

Love Jesus!

Love Yourself!

~Oh, the J.O.Y.~
