Waiting With Broken Wings — 30 Comments

  1. Holding you close in prayer, friend. Waiting is hard but He is there with you and will never leave you. Much love to you. xoxo (((hugs)))

  2. Oh hon, waiting for Father’s timing can be so hard and the lessons in between can be tough. Walking beside you my friend in prayer.
    As I have shared before it seems Father likes to keep me in the valley…on my knees. I am learning to actually really love this place because it is here that He is always carrying me…I am in His constant embrace and really what better place is there to be but in the arms of my Husband. The fleshy part hurts a lot but the spiritual part is so exquisite and I am so honoured that He is keeping me here for my love for Him only deepens and grows as I tunnel deeper and deeper into knowing Him.

    Maybe you can glean from that.

    Hugs, love and lots of prayers sister.

  3. Hi Barbie! I can relate to the season of brokenness. It never seems like it means anything…just pain and sadness. But God does make use of everything in our lives, I know you’ll come back with a great shout! And I know you will share that joy too.
    Patience is a tough virtue. It’s hard to be patient in the dark. But I will sit with you, along with all your blog-friends as you wait for you light to come.
    Many blessings and hugs to you,

    • Ceil, what beautiful encouragement to my heart. Thank you for sitting with me in the dark. It makes the light all the more reachable.

  4. Yes, I have felt like a butterfly with broken wings before too…..dry seasons in which I have to remind myself that “this too shall pass”. You are a woman of God’s word and of prayer and he will give you new mercies each day. Love you and thank you for blogging even in the midst of brokenness.

  5. Ah, my friend, you are in a hard time. The pain of a broken wing–dream. It’s going to be an amazing day when God opens His blessings over your head and fixes that wing. I’ve prayed it will be soon. His answers always come.

  6. This reminds me of your recent butterfly post. You lay nestled inside the chrysalis, as The Lord speaks, loves and protects you. Yes, waiting is very hard – as kids can attest to when waiting for the newly formed butterfly to break free. Standing with you as we learn to be patient and to trust His will! Blessings, friend!

    • I thought of that post while writing this. I am finding all of the pieces of my writing connecting and intertwining. Have a blessed weekend.

  7. What a beautiful post and exactly what I needed today! Thank you for sharing and I will be lifting you in prayer during this time–God is teaching me to trust Him in deeper ways through my current trial and brokenness and to lean on Him completely! He is blessing me with amazing peace through a very difficult situation and showing me every day that I am loved and protected and can have genuine, complete peace through the fire. Thank you so much for sharing! God bless you!!

  8. Praying for you, sweet friend, that you will find peace in your time of nestling in His arms. Under the shadow of His wings, are are safe. Much love you! xo

  9. “Am I willing to lay them all down for the sake of knowing Him?” This is a brave question that will surely lead all who sincerely ask it closer to the heart of Jesus. I’ll be wrestling with this one with you. Thank you for sharing your broken heart. It is beautiful. Praying for God’s healing and restoration. The waiting IS hard. But He is good. And He is able. Rest in that today, friend.

  10. Hi Barbie,
    What a powerful message filled with truth and honesty. Actually, after reading it rather quickly, I got my cup of coffee and have reread it, this time soaking it in. I need to read it one more time to let God speak to me something I’m sure He is trying to teach me. You see I struggle with a few dreams not realized…. did I take a wrong turn? was it my voice and not His speaking these dreams into my heart? what truly matters in life? and my central thought goes back to my One Word for 2014 -BALANCE. Oh Lord have mercy! How do I balance all that this life demands plus follow my dreams? Oh dear,,, I’m beginning to ramble. Sorry, it feels like a safe place here at your bloggy land home. Anyways, thank you for sharing your own struggles and journey. And I hope you have a blessed day! “Unable to fly, I sit, perched among the fragrant flowers, only able to see the beauty that is right in front of me…”

    • Debbie, I am so thankful you feel comfortable enough to ramble on at my place. Freedom to do so, any time. I am so glad this post encouraged your heart. Have a blessed tomorrow!
