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."

THE BLESSING... TRANSFORMING THURSDAY...

It takes great COURAGE to walk the walk of Jesus Christ. 
Steve and I are teaching a parenting class entitled, HOW GOD DOES FAMILY.  Each week we take a principle from scripture and expound on it. This week the principle is:

GOD BLESSES!
We discussed that we have a choice each day to be: A BLESSING OR A CURSE. Yes, the choice is ours. 
There are many ways to BLESS our families. One of those ways we've been talking about on this blog. Love your family enough to be patient and...
  • kind... What a BLESSING kind words can be!
  • keep no record of wrongs... Instead, spend your time keeping of record of what's right about your child/spouse.
Yet, what do words of BLESSING look like? We want to point out not just what a person does, but enCOURAGE "who he/she is". I modeled how I have done that with Steve and our children:
  • Steve, Jesus is THE COUNSELOR and WISDOM... I see Jesus in you, in those ways!
  • J, Jesus is THE LION / LAMB and HEALER... I see Jesus in you, in those ways.
  • J, Jesus is THE ROCK and IMMANUEL... I see Jesus in you, in those ways.
  • C, Jesus is THE CREATOR and WORD... I see Jesus in you, in those ways.
  • C, Jesus is THE FOUNTAIN and GOOD SHEPHERD... I see Jesus in you, in those ways.
You can do the same for your family via pointing out names or characteristics of Jesus that they remind you of.  In addition, how about giving a BLESSING to each one as you see in them parts of the fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT?  Say things like:
  • The JOY of the Holy Spirit flows out of you to BLESS others.
  • The Holy Spirit LOVES through you in a great way.
  • Your life exudes the Holy Spirit's PEACE that passes understanding.
  • Your FAITH is so enCOURAGING to me, as I watch you being led by the Holy Spirit.

Let God mold you today into a woman of COURAGE who BLESSES others with her tongue.

~Oh, the JOY~
