Strength in Vulnerability — 10 Comments

    • Oh I get that. Sometimes I think I am afraid He’ll ask me to lay things down that I love. There’s that trust again, tugging at my heart. Have a beautiful day friend.

  1. Thank you for pouring out your heart so beautifully. It speaks straight to my heart, today.  I struggle with leaving it ALL at the foot of the cross but I continue to strive for just that….the ability to become completely vulnerable.

  2. We feel those times of remorse knowing that we should have or should NOT have done something, but as we are reminded that God has no record of those doing because when He forgave us, he wiped the slate clean and cast all that into the deepest sea.  Amazing God we serve?  Right?

  3. I do this without even realizing it sometimes: “And I hold back, choosing to give just half of my heart to Him while trying to hold on to the other half.”

    I so agree with you, too, that vulnerability *requires* trust. I studied Psalm 40 this week, and it spoke volumes on trust. Patient, vulnerable trust.

    Great post, Barbie.

  4. You know how to speak right to my heart, Barbie.
    “A constant state of self denial.” Yes. That’s what I’m striving for. who knew it would take such effort!
    Thank you for sharing with your heart open wide. . .and I have complete faith we can both do this!

  5. Barbie, once again, I can so relate to your words.  I don’t like to be vulnerable, even with God.  I hold back a part of my heart, as if He doesn’t already know what is there.  But the only way I can be truly free is to give Him all of me.  I need to lay it all down at the foot of the cross. 

    Beautifully written and very challenging.  Thanks, Barbie!

  6. He knows we are but dust, and that we pant for Him. Such a sweet love. Unfailing love, how can it be, that my Jesus died for me.
