  3. I may not always link up, Barbie, but just want you to know I’m still following along.

    So appreciate Gina’s post.  These two words stuck out:   “inoperable in ministry.”  Through the years I’ve learned there is no such thing.  The Lord is always ministering through His children even when they may be in the most difficult pits.  I learned this when my dad battled Alzheimer’s many years ago and could not speak a word, recognize us, or even eat during each different stage of that horrific disease.  He began in his mid 50’s and went home with the Lord, His Savior and loving Father, in 2004.  To this day, not even the clearest minds have been able to minister to me as loud and clear as the Lord ministered through him during that battle. 

    Thank you again for sharing–to you, Barbie, and to Gina.

    •  Marcia, I am so thankful for a God who uses broken vessels.  I know that some of my greatest times of ministry come from my broken places.  That’s when it is not about me, and all about Him!  Blessings!

  4. Great post, Gina. Peoples opinions of us are just that, opinions. I love how God sees us as beautiful. When we step into His presence we look radiant to Him. Knowing I are fully accepted by God gives me unshakeable confidence in life! 

  5.  Oh Barbie, I can’t stand the thought of you ever having a breakdown.  I can relate with being ministry driven.  Once upon a time I was at church 16 hours a week.  IT WAS PATHETIC.  I was a lay pastor, on the church counsel, in the choir, the praise team, the prayer coordinator … and probably more, but that is all I can think of at the moment.  S i c k!   NOW I am reluctant to take on ANY role.  It is definitely a paradigm shift.   Dark yet lovely — lovely to our Lord.  o/  I love Him!
