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."

TAKEN BY LOVE... MEDITATION MONDAY

You've read this on this blog multiple times: 

"When a mustard bottle gets squeezed mustard comes out.
When a ketchup bottle gets squeezed, ketchup comes out.
When a christian gets squeezed, Jesus Christ should come out."


Why is it then, that when things don't go as planned, when the stresses of the day become overwhelming, or when we just don't "FEEL" like it... our squeeze ends up  pushing out "garbage/sewage"?

Yesterday, in his sermon entitled DON'T TAKE IT PERSONALLY, my hubby repeated this statement several times: 

"When I am weak, then I am strong...
I don't want to get in the way of the Divine!" 

We read through the following scriptures: 
  • 2 Corinthians 11:22-29
  • Ephesians 6:10-12
  • 1 Peter 2:18-3:16

He used all the above to get us to thinking / meditating on:
  1. It's not about me!  It's about Christ living in and through me!
  2. There is a battle going on!
  3. I was called for a purpose.

 THE PURPOSE?  For the love of Christ to live in you/me (in spite of the battle) as we:
  • LOVE J ESUS
  • LOVE O THERS
  • LOVE Y OURSELF
