The Weekend Brew: The Road To Maturity — 27 Comments

  1. Spiritual maturity is actually something that’s been on my mind a lot lately. I’ll have to take a peek at this book. I know God is definitely working to grow my spiritual maturity to higher levels. I just wonder at times if I’m doing my part the way He’d prefer. Lol! 🙂

    • You will love the book Rosann. I am considering doing a blog link up about it. Maybe when life calms down. It could be a team effort!

  2. I remember reading that book years ago. And I too am in the midst of reading about spiritual growth and maturity. There are times when I continue to struggle with the same sins …again. But God in His mercy offers me grace. How thankful I am for that. And I want to grow spiritually as I learn to abide in Him.

    Blessings and love my friend,

    • He’s so patient with us, isn’t He? So loving, gentle and compassionate. Praying you have a blessed week my friend.

  3. Thanks, Ms. Barbie for letting me join you all this week. I haven’t read the devotional. I just recently received a Kindle as a gift, so I will look for it. HOPE you have a blessed SONday and rest of the week, too!

  4. Hi Barbie.
    This looks like an interesting devotional, I checked it out and purchased it for my kindle. 🙂

    I will get into it when I have a bit of time on my hands.


  5. I adored this book! My girls and I read it aloud together and so many nights, the words left me with goose bumps and wide eyes. I too can relate to Much Afraid. And I guess you could say I’ve fit all three descriptions: rocky start, some redirected footing and now frozen with fear! And many days I hold fast to the wonderful image of Our Good Shepherd – the One who’ll never leave a single one of us behind! Thank you for writing this. Many blessings!

    • This book has been such a blessing in my life. I am working through it again, with a whole new perspective than I did when I first read it years ago. So thankful for the Lord’s gentle leading in my life.

  6. I agree with some of the others, that devotional book is deep, deep but so, so full of truths. I have had it for several years and need to pull it back out and use it again.

    I have found that it is through those rocky spots of life that the Lord shows Himself so real to me and as tough as they are, they are times of real spiritual growth in my life.

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  7. your photo says so much in the quietness and life of it – I love it! I read Hinds Feet in High Places, the children’s version, with my boys one season – they loved it, too. I think this summer I’m going to pull out my beautifully illustrated inbetween children’s edition of Pilgrim’s Progress – they have a lot in common:) Wishing you an abundance of the Father’s blessings this weekend!

  8. I hope I can follow His plan on my journey into maturity and develop a walk that involves habits of trust, praise, and hope; thankful for all His amazing grace!

    Have a blessed and joyful weekend Barbie!

  9. Dear Barbie
    I don’t think the road to the high places into the life of our sweet Lord is ever easy!! Our Pappa refines us in the refiner’s fire of suffering to enable us to leave the world and the flesh behind and to enter into the wonderful heavenly Jerusalem! But oh, my friend, it is so worth it!
    Much love XX

  10. I remember how hard it was for me to get through that book the first time I read it. There were so many deep, and not always easy to accept, lessons in it.

    • I am actually trying to work through it again. The first time I read it I was a new Christian and sort of skipped over the hart parts. But I am trying to read it slowly and ask the Lord to speak to those places in my heart that still need healing. Blessings my friend!
