Five Minute Friday: Dive — 20 Comments

  1. I just listened to the Steven Curtis Chapman song and I realized I’ve heard it many times on KLOVE radio. But I loved it and listened again more closely to the words.

  2. We are so kindred, that song is where my heart led me, too!

    and I don’t like to get my hair wet…not because I’m obsessed of my hair, I just have sensory issues 😉
    so this hits me hard….the submission of giving Him my all. denying myself…my issues. for His glory.

    worth it. I’m with you friend! The day is drenched in grace and I’m going swimming! let’s dive!

  3. That is one of my favorite songs – I can remember driving with the windows down on a warm summer evening on my way to teach VBS at my church and playing this song and singing at the top of my lungs 🙂 I have been a swimmer my whole life, so “diving in” has special meaning to me! Happy Friday 🙂

  4. hi, Barbie!
    love this post. it IS all about the risk, isn’t it? being willing to jump in. that’s what struck me this day, too.
    great thoughts!
    and, by the way, love your word for the year. so much contained in that word; i’ll look forward to seeing how it plays out in your life through the year.

  5. What a great idea to add those lyrics! Love it! Hey, another thing we have in common. My parents had a pool and I loved just being in the water by myself too. I had a lot of great naps out there on floats (God surely protected me) and enjoyed watching the sky too.

    Have a wonderful Friday Barbie!


  6. Hi dear Barbie
    That first dive usually is the most frightening, but afterwards as we experience His love, it seems the most natural thing to do!
    Hugs to you XX

  7. Barbie! Love this on “Diving!” You are so right! I am really trying in this new year God has blessed us to see;to dive in! I tried so carefully to pace myself,be sure I was in sync with God & what He wants me to do this year, new methods, etc. But tonight I am feeling very overwhelmed! Oh my goodness, I read your comment today, & you are doing so much! At home, work, church! You are really balancing life!

    • Oh Helen, you should stop by for a visit and see how out of balance I really am. It’s so hard to really get everything done that I need to do. I probably spend way too much here, in the blog world, but oh you and so many others are breaths of fresh air to me.

  8. Hey Barbie, I missed you at the #FMFParty tonight but I’m so glad to see your linky here. I’ve missed you, friend. I’m so glad to start this year off with such an amazing community of inspiring, beautiful friends dreaming big and taking that leap for Him. Love you.

    • Hi my friend! It’s hard for me to join the party every week. I still technically at work, and not home until about 9:30 or 10PM East Coast Time. I missed you all so much! Thanks for being such a wonderful friend!
