Stretch Me Lord! — 37 Comments

  1. great post…yes He does stretch…but never to break our hearts…just break down those things that keep us from living free…blessings as we stretch in Him~

  2. Yes, He does stretch us beyond our abilities so we rely on His abilities…wonderful write…wishing you a blessed Sunday, Barbie 🙂

  3. I like this, Barbie! “He calls me to exercise muscles I’ve never used before.” So very true. If we are to grow, we must step out of our comfort zones…we must use those muscles we’ve never used. Thanks for the encouragement!

  4. “The stretch enlarges my heart …” So love this Barbie! So blessed by your words friend! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. I hear you Barbie! He does stretch us and it can at times be a bit painful. But it’s so good for us.

    blessings and love,

  6. Yours is the 3rd entry I’ve read on “stretch” and they have all been such a blessing. Stretching means growth and I’ve definitely had my fair share in recent months. But, he remains faithful through it all. Blessings for a great weekend!

  7. Amen to that, Barbie! I love the feeling of stretching when I’m doing it myself. But when God stretches me, it often feels uncomfortable. It’s so good to know His stretching has an equally healthy purpose as my own – actually sometimes an even better purpose. Happy Friday!

  8. So true, Barbie! I know I’ve certainly experienced plenty of stretching in my short lifetime, and I’m sure there’s much more to come!

  9. Oh, amen! We are so kindred. Let’s wear these stretchmarks of living proudly. for they display the beauty of His power in our weakness…

    what a wonderful write, friend! Oh what God can do through you. Even five minutes at a time!

  10. I second Beth’s amen! I love what you said here: “Although the stretch is often painful, He promises that I will never be
    broken, never be torn beyond repair. The stretch enlarges my heart and
    opens me wide to receive all that He has prepared for me.” I’m right there with you, Barbie!
    Have a wonderful Friday, my friend!

  11. Amen Barbie! He definitely has a way of stretching us. He knows how easily we would stay in that comfortable position. Have a blessed Friday!
