Embracing The Winds of Change — 21 Comments

  1. thanx Barb. I needed "i wont be afraid i will face the wind i wont be afraid ill embrace the flame" Had a dream of being in an accident. Well my friend was as she was driving, but we werent hurt PHEW and apparently it means youre anxious about something and youre not in control of your life. The car represents you so if you arent driving youre not in control…. wasdistressed at first but i know now God is controlling and thats ok… thanx

  2. Ohh Barbie, sitting reading with tears in
    My eyes, again today I bought my toddler home from hospital and the wind feels like it is sooo strong and will sweep me clean away. Your post just touched my heart so- like God spoke it directly to me via you

    "  God does not promise that it will not be painful at times, these winds of change.  But He does promise that if we will lean into it, surrender to it, He will bring us through, unscaved and much stronger."

    Thank you sweet sister

  3. I really needed your post tonight. Thanks so much for sharing these words and reminding me to not let fear immobilize and freeze me but to instead lean into the wind and see where it takes me.

  4. Yes, yes, yes…winds of change. I'm so thankful that there is someone like you who has been blown in the same direction as I have. Love you…

  5. Blessings to you Barbie, Have I told you how much your posts always minister to me?! If not hear this-the Lord is using you to touch the lives of others. I would love to be upholding you during this "windy" period-feel free to email me any needs.
    Have a Sun-drenched weekend.

  6. Barbie,

    thank you for sharing this! I really needed to be reminded of this … it can be such a scary thing to lean into the wind of change ,not knowing what change will bring and it can be difficult to just trust and have faith. However, when we give into our fear it gets even harder to face any kind of situation.


  7. thank you for this reminder. I feel like my mind has been going crazy recently with all the change that is happening in my life. thank you for the reminder of Who is in control and how I should respond. Hope you are having a blessed day!

  8. Oh Barbie~ good word today! I used to think I embraced change but as I get older I clearly see I am deceived HA imagine that ….my flesh deceiving me! 😉

    Thank you for this timely word and I know surrendering and allowing the Lord to work and change me is all a gift! Getting on the other side I will be more than thankful!

    Love you my friend

  9. what an awesome post one I really needed to hear today thanks so much for sharing this, this is something I truley need to work on…

  10. Wonderful post, Barbie! This is so true – it can be hard to trust in the Lord at all times, but in the long run, it's much, much easier than trying to do it on our own!

    Love and Blessings,

  11. Never been one for change and yet…it seems that I should just get on board with it as my life has been nothing BUT change-on-a-stick 🙂

    Great post…

  12. I can fully relate to this! My life has been turned around and upside down in all sorts of ways the past few months. Love that Misty Edwards song, too. When the wind blows, we have a cornerstone.

  13. Beautiful post, Barbie. I think I would fall under the class of one of those people who shudder away from the winds. Perhaps I need to work on that!

    Thanks for posting!

    In Christ,
    Lizzy Rose

  14. Beautiful Post Barbie, beautiful reminder. God is so faithful and works in ways we TRULY can't see. You are a testimony of His Faithfulness!

  15. Oh, this is really great insight. Thank you for sharing. I needed to hear this today. I desire to lean into his leading as well but miserably fail at times and end up doing what I think He is calling me to do but in my own freaking strength messing the whole thing up. Indeed I am a work in progress.

  16. Wonderfully stated, Barbie.

    "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."

    It is so hard, isn't it? Especially on the days when the wind is super strong and fierce.

    Love ya.


  17. Well written post with a timely message…I love wind so much. But right now it is hard for me to see God in the turbulence. Your words, even what the Lord spoke to you, minister to my heart and give me hope. I pray for you to have an abiding peace in the midst of all of the changes taking place in your life. Thank you for sharing so honestly 🙂 MIKI
