Five Minute Friday: Again — 66 Comments

  1. This is beautiful… and I found myself saying, Yes and Amen! His love is amazing. Your faith through this trying time is evidence of your heart being wholly His. Love you, friend.

  2. There are good words, and lovely words and inspiring words…..and then there is TRUTH. And there’s no denying you write words of truth. Thank you so much for the gift of truth, that can only come from relationship with Him.

  3. Hi Barbie,

    I “met” you on Edie’s blog about a year (ok two?) ago, and followed you here today. I think God has a peculiar way of working with us. I love your post today… and I can tell you that everything you wrote is so very true. I am the living example of that which He restores. I will have to read your blog to catch up on your life. When we “spoke” last on Edie’s blog, I mentioned that my home was going to be lost in our bankruptcy. Just recently I was able to save it. I know you lost yours… I’ll read your blog to see how you are doing a year (or two) later.

    • Hi Andrea! I do remember. I am so happy to hear you were able to save your home. I am praying you are feeling better. I left a note for you on your blog!

  4. Oh Barbie, this is so beautiful! I just might print it off and post it on my fridge! (Too bad my printer’s not working.) Hmm… some pretty paper and handwriting, perhaps! 🙂

  5. Your writing reminds me so much of King David! Sharing the reality of life, the hardships of circumstances…but then twisting it all to point to the greatness of our God & King & how to live and who we are through Him! Never come away disappointed when I stop by to read! Words of courageousness lifting all of our weary souls! Thank you! And Bless you, my friend!

    • I am humbled by your comment. It’s hard to share the realities of my life at times, yet I know that it encourages others and I pray it brings Him glory! Thank you for your kind words. Have a beautiful weekend.

  6. Barbie, this is so beautiful! As I read it, it feels like you wrote it for me. It perfectly describes the month I’ve been having and the way our faithful and loving God has picked me up, sheltered me, loved on me, and given me time to rest, all while opening new doors in ministry for me. I’m going to print this out and keep it so I can read it again and again.
    Thank you for encouraging me friend!
    In Christ,

    • So thankful God spoke to you through the post. I think I am going to make a printable of the part I quoted. I will let you know!

    • You are so right. We have a rich history in God and it’s there to remind us of what He’s already done! Have a blessed weekend.

  7. Your closing thought, it is mine so often. And I am so grateful. I was encouraged to remember “all that He has done for me” again, this morning. Thank you!

  8. Oh, but this is so easy for we feeble, sinful humans to forget, isn’t it? Yes, He can and will do this… again.

    Thank you for sharing, Barbie! This is so encouraging.

    • I’ve had a few people ask me to make this into a printable! I am going to work on that. He is always proving His love for me, again and again!

  9. Hi Barbie
    It makes one feel special to know that you are to Him so important that He would leave all the others behind to come and rescue you when you are crying and so frightened!
    Much love XX
