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."

2012: 30 Days of Thankfulness: Day 6

I am thankful for the number 6:

·         6 days of creation – Thank You, LORD, for Your magnificent creation.

·         6th day is when man/woman were created!

·         6 days of work before a day of rest – Thank You, LORD, for designing work in such a way that we can each contribute our part to the bigger picture.

·         November 6, 2012 is election day in the United States of America.  Although, today I will go to the polls to cast my vote, I choose to get up every morning and vote for my ONLY HOPE… “not in the donkey, nor in the elephant, but in THE LAMB.”

 

When many people think of the number 6, they think of it in a string of three 6’s:  the devil or the anti-christ. Over the years, we have received credit card numbers and even a bank account number with 3 sixes.  Ugh!  Several years ago, I did a little reading and was encouraged to put a re-frame on the idea of 666.

  

PSALM 66:6  A reminder that God is my Deliverer:  “He turned the sea into dry land; They passed through the river on foot; There let us rejoice in Him!”

 

Isaiah 66:6 A reminder of who wins:  “A voice of uproar from the city, a voice from the temple, The voice of the Lord who is rendering recompense to His enemies.”

 

One day, in studying about the number 6, I learned that in the early manuscripts 666 is sometimes 616.  It made me smile.  I love Ephesians 6 and now Ephesians 6:16 takes on yet another connection for meJ.  I love Your Word, LORD!  GIGATTAATTGIG:

 

EPHESIANS 6…

10 “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.

11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.


12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

16   “…in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.



17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18  With all prayer and petition  pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view,  be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,

19 and pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel,

20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
