The Weekend Brew: He’s Calling You To Come Away! — 32 Comments

  1. You paint during worship? That sounds amazing! I once worshiped with a young man who painted Jesus while we sang. I wish I could have taken the painting home. It was beautiful!

    I love the words you shared here. They are so encouraging and so perfect for this time of year. This is typically when I feel his calling the clearest!

    • Yes, I am so privileged to be able to worship God in this way. I am known as the “finger painter” at my church, as every painting I do is 95% with my hands & fingers! I have seen some pretty amazing paintings done during worship! Be blessed!

  2. He is calling you to come away with Him.

    i gasped at this line, because I found you through one blog and then another and on some sort of twisted rabbit-hole path that I could not trace back without much work. but I wrote about this same thing today, and I know He wanted me to know this, deep, centered in my core.

    you spoke life to me today, dear sister. I will be in this place more often. <3

    • I am so thankful you stopped by Rachel, and were blessed, I just hopped over to your blog. WOW, how did I every miss visiting you before? I am following you along and hope to get to know you more. You write beautifully!

  3. Barbie – once again, a wonderful post and reminder! Thank you so much for hosting this lovely linkup each week. I’m now headed out to have a quiet moment with our Lord as I take the dog for a walk. Blessings to you today!

  4. I am reading the chronological Bible and am almost to Song of Solomon. I can’t wait to see/hear what the Lord will do during my time in that book as I study HIs Word. Thanks so much for sharing and for the link up, Barbie. Have a good weekend! Love, Rachael

    • SOS has got to be my favorite, next to the Psalms. I did a series on my blog a while back on it. There is so much that I know God has yet to reveal. Have a lovely weekend.

  5. Oh my friend…you speak truth.
    Thank you for your words today and the encouragement in them.
    It is so good to ‘steal away’ with him. Always.
    I am so fascinated how your church has people who paint. A lovely piece. Thank you for sharing it and your heart.
    May your and your family enjoy an extraordinary weekend and Memorial Day!

    • Diane, I love that we have the freedom to express ourselves in worship in this way. There are so many talented artists in our church. I paint with my hands so I am unique as I love to feel the music as I offer myself to God in this way. Have a lovely weekend!

  6. Love, love, love! Being that I’m somewhat new to my faith there is still much of the Bible I have not read. Sometimes I wish this wasn’t the case, but many times (like now) I’m so grateful when others share something that is new for me to learn. This…oh how I love this. “Come away with Him.” I think I need to go spend some time in Songs. Thank you for sharing, Barbie. I truly do love your heart for others. Beautiful!

    • Thank you for following. I am so thankful you are blessed! I did a lengthy series on my blog a while back on Songs. If you do a search on my blog (search bar at the bottom) you will find all of the posts. Blessings for a beautiful weekend.

  7. This beautiful verse is such a blessing; one in which God wants to speak to each one of us while we are lost in our circumstances. You can just hear His voice drawing our hearts away to Him!! Beautiful Barbie; thanks for this encouragement this weekend!

    Blessings and hugs dear sister,

  8. Beautiful thoughts & painting. Nothing compares with those quiet moments with Him to get you through the day. The devotional by the same title, Come Away My Beloved, is one of my favorites! Has been for years. Thank you for sharing this today!

  9. Dear Barbie
    The best is when our Beloved teaches us how to always abide in Him. Then we can often in quiet moments just become still and draw deep into His Loving Embrace. Priceless, way above the riches this world can offer!!
    God bless you this weekend, Barbie
