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,

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."

SO LONG SELF... FAMILY FELLOWSHIP FRIDAY...





Fellowship = 2 or more fellows in the same ship!

Looking at it in those terms, I ask myself, "What happens to those 'fellows' when a storm comes?"  I have a feeling that "focusing on oneself instead of on the good of all on board" would NOT be the correct answer.







It is so easy to get caught up in protecting ourselves first.  In light of our topic on this blog, we each  must learn to LOVE ourselves by pouring ourselves out and allowing Jesus to fill us up.  What follows is becoming more and more like Christ in:

  1. Mourning over the sinful condition of our world.
  2. Meekly living in the midst of that world.
  3. Hungering and thirsting for His righteousness in all I do.
  4. Merciful ministering to all those who my life touches each day.
  5. Keeping a pure heart in all things.

I'm thinking of some of my friends this weekend in terms of FellowSHIP...
  •  FellowSHIP:  What does that look like while chaperoning a busload of teens on a multi-state trip?
  •  FellowSHIP:  What does that look like when a mommy hosts a bunch of young ones for a slumber party?
  • FellowSHIP:  What does that look like when a group of mommies get together and have lots of time to gab while the kids play?
  • FellowSHIP:  What does that look like when you are along with just your family at home?
 NONE OF SELF! 

BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT!
