The Weekend Brew: Lead Me To The Rock — 36 Comments

  1. Hi Barbie! Rock climbing is certainly not my idea of fun either… physically or spiritually. It’s hard work. But the rewards are great – the better perspective and sense of accomplishment are worth it. Thanks for hosting The Weekend Brew.

  2. This is beautiful and filled with encouragement and truth. Climbing higher helps us also to lighten our load of the unimportant things of this life. May we keep our eyes set on Him as we climb! Blessings to you today, dear friend!

  3. Oh how I need this encouragement, thank you! Some days it feels as if the cliff is perpendicular to my feet, straight up and impossible to imagine climbing! Thankfully, God places certain people in our lives to tell us, Don’t give up! You can do it! Hugs, friend!

  4. Your words described life when challenges threaten to overtake. I also was reminded of our book study “hind’s Feet on High Places” Ch. 10 where Much-Afraid is in the middle of the climb of her life. I am praying for you and your current climb. I know God will meet you right where you are. Hugs and love!

  5. “He is a good Father and His desire is to lighten our load. But sometimes He calls us to climb up the mountain, and leave it at the top as an offering ” – my heart has been faint for a season – but He hasn’t left me – Oh, yes – He leads me to the rock that is Him! Good words for a faint heart, Barbie!

  6. This is beautiful Barbie. I’m not outdoorsy either, but the analogy is perfect. Lead me to the Rock that is Higher and my firm foundation! We will keep climbing sweet sister. Blessings and hugs!

  7. Barbie…. great thoughts… I am in the midst of a climb… a hard one and I have seen so many evidences of God’s strengthening power…. but I still feel tired…. I needed to hear this today.. Thank you. 🙂

    • It is exhausting to keep climbing, isn’t it? I am also in the midst of a climb and my human self wants to turn and run. But He promises to lead us all the way and make our feet like hinds feet. Stay steady friend. He’s with you!

      • It really is exhausting, you’re right. I am striving to stay steady in trusting God and keeping my eyes on Him, and I really appreciate the encouragement… I will be praying the same for you…. you have blessed me. Thank you. 🙂

  8. My, there’s always a climb isn’t there, Barbie. Often a complete surpirise, an unexpected set-back, but a golden opportunity all the same.

    I’m oh so grateful that He’s the guide. Experienced. Compassionate. Gracious.

    Weekend blessings …

  9. Barbie, I cannot help but think as I read your post this morning that it is only as we climb higher, we gain a clearer view. As we climb higher, we get a clear view of what is up ahead, and where we need to go. As we climb higher, our line of vision is changed & becomes much clearer. Wise post! May we keep climbing higher. Blessings!

  10. Love the visual of climbing the mountain! God calls us to keep moving forward, even when in a tough time, trusting him as we put one foot in front of the other – sometimes those steps leading us on a very steep climb up a mountain. I’ve learned some of my greatest lessons and had most significant personal growth while climbing “mountains” with God.

    • I tend to shy away from the climb, but He’s brought me through some tough seasons and He has always proven faithful in the climb. Thanks for stopping by and for linking up!

  11. I love Psalm 18:33 in the Amplified Bible. “He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly or make progress on the dangerous heights of testing and trouble]; He sets me securely upon my high places.” I”ve leaned on this verse many times when I go through the hard places on my journey with God.
