The Gift That Grows — 16 Comments

  1. It seems that whatever you do, you do it as unto the Lord.  And Barbie, I think that is most important.  I’ve always tried to do that too.  Even if it’s sweeping the floor of the lunch room after the children have had lunch, I never want to feel that this is beneath me.  We are to do our best, whatever it is.

    I”m amazed at how far you’ve come in your blogging.  You write very well and are very engaging.  You’ve been able to grow it because you engage people.  I’m so glad you are one of the bloggers I had the pleasure of meeting in person.  

    Sending hugs,

  2. Sweet Barbie ~ I appreciate your vulnerability and authenticity. God has given you a special gift with your writing ~ I’m always so blessed when I visit! May the Lord continue to bless you, empower you, and provide opportunities to use your gifts for His Kingdom puposes. Your heart for Him is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing your passions with us 🙂

  3. I have many passions but I’m not sure I am talented in those areas though.  One passion is to be a better writer/blogger.  I feel as if my writing is dry, but in my heart i want to be able to write beautiful pieces.

    • You sound like you have a beautiful heart and that’s something God can use for His glory.  It’s not so much the amount of talent we have, but our willingness to surrender what we have back to Him!

  4. This is so interesting and I know God is trying to get my attention.  This verse has come before me dozen of times since June.  Thanks for sharing!

  5. Barbie, I love all of your gifts but what I love the most is that you want to Glorify God through them.  That is just beautiful.

  6. You are so sweet!  I love your paintings Barbie and I’m sure your voice is lovely too.  Of course I love your writing!  You are a gifted lady!

    Love & hugs,

  7. I’d love to see one of your paintings. Our church has done some artistic forms of worship like that. I wish they would do more of it–it is such a blessing! Thanks for sharing about your passion. You sound like a very talented person!

    • Hi Beth.  Thanks for stopping by.  If you go to the top of my blog under my header, my paintings can be found under “my art”.  Would love to know what you think! 

  8. It’s amazing how He waters our desires in His perfect grace. You’re willingness to use your God-given gifts for His glory is beautiful! And I’m sure you are quite talented in each of your passions! 🙂
