39 In Weekend Whispers

The Weekend Brew: What Is God Saying?

Today I have no words to share with you.  I’m feeling a little tired and heavy.  There are so many things on my heart, and sometimes I just don’t have the words.  But I know that God hears every beat of my heart, even the unspoken prayers.

This is a song written and recorded by a very dear friend of mine, and the main worship leader at the house of prayer that I am privilege to serve in.  Her heart for the Lord is contagious.  I pray you will take some time this week to sit back, close your eyes, and allow this song to sink deep into your spirit.

The Lord desires to partner with you to accomplish His will.  Are you asking Him what is on His heart today?

 

Now it’s your turn to share encouragement here at The Weekend Brew.
1.  Share a post, photo, scripture — anything that breathes life and encourages.  (Please only link one post.  Multiple posts from the same site will be deleted.)
2.  Grab the button from my sidebar to use in your post, or simply link here.
3.  Visit the person who linked up before you (and a few others if you have time).

    It was a beautiful song of worship and surrender. Thank you for sharing, my friend. I pray that you will find refreshing and renewal for your soul. I pray that you will find the rest and the infilling of God’s Spirit that you crave. I also pray that His Words to you would flood your heart and mind so as to be your sustenance and peace. In Jesus Name. Amen.

    what i love about God, he planned for this. moments in our lives when we just don’t have words. and you know what He does for us, He groans for us… interceding for us what can not be uttered. now that is enough to give you comfort, joy, hope, because we don’t have to have words ALL the time. praying for you my friend, because i know you have seen my words and known my heart and prayed for me.

    Ah Barbie I continue to pray for you friend. Beautiful song. I’m glad you came by to accompany me on my virtual vacation. I think we both could use a real one but in the meantime it kind of helps to dream.

    Blessings and love,

    Hi Barbie, I know right? I often feel that way, too – weary, sad, and burdened. Just take your pleasurable rest – in the Lord. I pray He will lift them up before you know it :).

    Praying for you, Barbie! Praise God that He knows our hearts & how to comfort us. Love the photo — it’s a confirmation to me that I should write a blog post about a dream I had last night about a wedding. God bless.

    This song was amazing! Another like-hearted blogger posted this week and mentioned this word: confide. I soaked that up. I know I’ll be writing on it next weekend if not sooner. My longing is to confide in God — with all that means — I guess that is why my word for 2014 is “Draw Near.” Thank you for inviting me over and for this transparent post. Praying for you today: that all the heaviness becomes light as you curl up in His arms. These wordless moments — days — seasons — are part of a healthy life in Him. He uses every last drop of whatever we endure for His sake and ours — and in time, others. I love the translation of “Be still and know I am God” as “Cease striving and know that I am God.” I don’t know if any part of you is striving, but I often find I a comfort I need.
