Abiding {Days 21-22} Rooting Deeper — 12 Comments

  1. I see two trees sharing roots. 🙂 Each rooting into the proper place, the LORD and the soil of His marvelous love…and yet there roots touching and providing one another encouragement and nourishment as they both learn to trust in Him and receive from Him more and more. I am so thankful for the women He has placed in my life…women also seeking to root deeper, women who encourage me and spur me on! 
    Thank YOU for the encouragement you have been to me. 🙂 

    Rooting deeper with you,
    K 🙂

  2. Lea, I was just thinking that it’s often the hard places in our lives that push us closer to  God.  But He uses those situations, doesn’t he?  Praying you have a beautiful week!

  3. Beautiful blog you have here Barbie! So glad I stumbled across you. 🙂 

    This is a beautiful post, I totally understand the feeling of hitting a “wall” when it comes to writing. Since I’m also a songwriter, this has a double meaning for me. 🙂 I love the painting! I see a heart that is rooted deep in soil, so deep that it is face first (so to speak). Love it! Look forward to reading more!

  4. Great post Barbie! I’m certainly more grounded and and abiding more because of these past 4 challenging months with my Dad.  It’s a shame that it sometimes takes life’s challenges to draw us closer to Him and to rest in His promises.
    I see an upside down heart in the picture that represents to me the way it often is, our hearts turned upside down but He is still on His throne and will set our hearts straight once again when we abide in Him.  Blessings!

  5. Thank you so much, Barbie, for this post and actually, this whole series. I have been incredibly blessed and encouraged by them. This post does speak to me personally, because the Lord actually showed a friend of mine that my roots are going deep, and that Bible passage in Ephesians is a favorite of mine in remembering His love for thank you for sharing your heart with us. It means more than you know 🙂

    Blessings and love,

  6. Beautiful painting and such lovely words from God — rooting down.  Down to the Wellspring.  Oh, the water is deep and refreshing there…

    And I so get that writing is hard.  When I did my 31 days series, it took everything I had almost!  Encouragement and prayers coming your way.
