The Autumn Rains — 21 Comments

  1. Barbie, I’m sure it comes to no surprise to you that Psalm 84:6 was one of my go to prayers during my hears in the autumn season of faith.  It was drenched in tears which later become salve for my soul.  “I found myself with nowhere to look but up, choosing to trust” I love your Jesus turning heart and sharing transparency with us!

  2. Such rich lessons in this post Barbie.  Letting go of hope deferred … Yes!  God uses you mightily in many ways Barbie.  Just as the olive is pressed and pressed to release very costly oil — your fragrant oil has been released.

    Love & hugs,

  3. Thank you for sharing so honestly!  I love how God is there and teaching us to see beauty through the pain. I have been learning this lesson. 

  4. Oh yes, we are so on the same page here Barbie!  Letting go and allowing God to be in control.  We both know life’s difficulties and it’s not fun but at the same time we are both growing and learning.  I love that.  May He give you His peace as only He can do.


  5. Change!  I dislike change very much.  At work they told us that change is GOOD, but I never believed them.  Letting go of the past is difficult, but it is part of change that is good.  Some dreams may also be cast aside, but others will come and God is in the renewal business.  He makes new if he is not able to FIX it for you !!

  6. Hi there, Firstly I love the quote about dancing in the rain but I love your heart and the choice to let go.  I have many deferred hopes that I too have released to the Lord, trusting Him to heal my heart.  He will release His Spirit on you continually to bring you to a new land.  Sending hugs your way.

  7. Love, love, love the quote you used at the top!  Your words remind me of the song, Yes, Lord or I’m Trading My Sorrows -” I’m trading my sorrows, I’m trading my pain.  I’m laying them down, for the joy of the Lord. ”  It’s a choice we make.  Great post, Barbie!

    • I love “Trading my Sorrows”!  I didn’t even think about that when I wrote the post. It sure fits!  I am trading them for the joy of the Lord.  Thanks for stopping by today.
