The Weekend Brew: God is Near — 32 Comments

  1. What truth! Just in recent weeks He has shown Himself so real to me once again over a particular situation. Yes, life can be very tough, but He is always tougher. Thank goodness! Have a wonderful week!

    • Hi Julie! I’ll have a new link up on Friday (late evening). It runs Friday/Saturday through Tuesday. Would love to have you link up! Blessings!

  2. Beautiful, Barbie, and so very true. I am in that place of waiting. Sometimes, I’m full of hope and inspiration, but at other times, I just feel sorrowful and hungry. Like last night. The Spirit beckoned me to draw near, as always, and I did. The Lord received me with His unfailing love and comfort. Tears fell freely. It is well with my soul.

    • I constantly need to remind myself of this. He said He would never leave us, nor forsake us, even during those times when He appears far away. Blessings!

  3. Oh, Barbie, thank you. You have penned what is in my heart. The waiting when I don’t feel Him, when I struggle to find the space to just quiet myself and listen. This is just the kind of encouragement I need to keep pressing in. Thank you for hosting this Spirit filled link up. You are precious to me.

  4. So grateful that he responds to us as we spend time with him. What a difference it makes whenever I do that…he truly sets me in a better spot…my attitude, outlook, decision-making, behavior, etc. But, feeling. That has not been my blessing in the journey. If you do feel him…you are so blessed. I’ve always wondered what that would be like.

    • Feeling Him does not come easy for me. Sometimes His nearness isn’t felt, it’s just known. I am going to pray that He will allow you to feel His presence in a tangible way! Blessings!

  5. Dear Barbie
    Yes, dear one, we just need to draw near to our Pappa God knowing and trusting His promise that He will draw near to us. What a wonderful place to be, in His Presence.
    Much love
    P.s. I can’t find the button to link-up!
