The Weekend Brew: Arise, My Daughters! — 48 Comments

  1. I would like to thank you for this word from the Lord. Yes, I know that I am late, but it was the right time for me to see this. I just recently finished fasting for direction in my life and the impression I felt in my heart were those words, “Arise my daughter.” So I googled and here I am. Thank you so much and may the Lord continue to bless you.

  2. Barbie,
    I stumbled upon this today after receiving your latest post. Can I just shout WOW! All week (this is only Wednesday) my heart has been heavy. I’ve asked and prayed so many of the questions that were answered in that beautiful word. I am rejoicing and resting that He hears all the details. My God is faithful to direct me to a blog that was written a week ago. He does go before us. Thank you for being a vessel open to serve Him…


  3. Love those words of encouragement. They’re perfect for both of us right now! And I can’t believe you painted it – you’re a great painter. That was also fun doing that little link up thing. I’ve never done that before. Will have to try it again sometime – it was easy to understand even for this non-techie.

    • Thanks so much Melanie. I paint often, in church, during worship. So privileged that I get to do this. I have no formal training and my work is abstract, 90% done with my fingers/hands. I am finding a way to bless others with my art by laying scripture text over the backgrounds. Now I know what to do with those canvasses collecting dust that aren’t hanging in my home!

  4. The colors in your painting are gorgeous! There is a sense of strength and a beautiful feeling of peace in that painting. And in your words. Thank you for hosting every week!

  5. Barbie, I’ve always been touched by your paintings and this impacted me even more than previously. I love the Word you received for us and going to cherish it. May His glory fall on you as you seek to minister through the gifts He has so graciously given you!

  6. Have I told you how grateful I am for you???? Truly beautiful! Wow…your painting is amazing. The words you shared have made me cry. I’m rather emotional today. Just one of those days. I needed this though. I really needed. Bless you.

    • Awe friend, I wish I could come over and sit with you, love on you and eat chocolate with you. I’ve been thinking about you this week and so thankful my words, His words, blessed you . If I could give you my shoulder I would. Sending you a great big virtual hug. I hope you can feel it.

    • Thanks Elizabeth. I am finding a way to use my art to encourage others. I have so many pieces of abstract art that I’ve never shared. I love asking the Lord for words for His Daughters!

    • Jacqui, yes I did, probably about a year ago. I love that I get to express myself like this during worship services. With no formal training, I love abstract art and I mostly paint with my hands. I am finding a way to use my art as backdrops for scripture to bless others! Have a beautiful Sunday!

  7. Beautiful painting…beautiful words. My kids and I are watching the butterfly life cycle right now. We just saw the caterpillar turn into a chrysalis. I am captivated by this process. I went to Youtube last night to watch the process in fast motion. It is simply amazing and compels me to think upon God, myself, life, upcoming events. Thank you for responding to God’s tugging for you to write this! It came at the proper moment for me!

    • I love the butterfly! I love the process it must go through to become so free. Thankful you were blessed today, and you’ve blessed me by coming here to comment.

  8. Lovely, lovely, Barbie. You have been gifted to write, to lead, to love … and to use a brush with grace. Thank you for sharing your space and your giftedness with us! Have a truly blessed weekend, my friend!

    • Linda, you bless me. I’m not sure I used a brush on this one. It was done so long ago. Most of my artwork now is done with my hands and fingers. I rarely use a brush anymore. With no artistic training, I like to feel the movement of the worship while I paint! Have a blessed Sunday!

  9. Barbie-
    Thank you so much for sharing this today. They are such beautiful words. And words I needed to hear this morning. “The flight may not always be smooth” but I feel assured this morning that He is with me & has gone on before me. Thank you for sharing the words that our God placed on your heart.
