  1. Barbie, when I was in my twenties, two seventy something year old women mentored me and helped me teach my first Bibke study, and I’ve been teaching God’s Word ever since. You are an influencer, you are definitely not too old!

  2. Oh, Friend, I love His whispers in response to your questions! I especially love, “I’m not finished with you yet.” What an encouragement to hear!

  3. I love this, Barbie. I’m sorry you are so attacked by those negative voices. It’s tough, isn’t it? “You are not enough” is one that especially taunts me. The grace whispers really touch my heart. I would really like my autopilot to immediately ask the question you ask, “What grace are You whispering to my heart today?” Thank you so much for sharing this. May we together learn to lean in and listen to those grace whispers to shut out the clamor of those negative voices! Blessings and hugs to you!

  4. oh, such wonderful responses that we too often forget to the lies we all fall prey to. Thanks for that reminder, Barbie. I’ve been so busy at work lately that I haven’t had time for all my bloggy stuff, but I’m glad to be here today!

  5. Isn’t Grace Amazing, Barbie? I love the way He has led you through whispers, down the way Grace goes,we need it.

    He is whispering Release to me over and over lately. Right in the middle of the mess, just release and let go…let God be I AM!

    Perserve in this grace journey, Barbie!

  6. God is whispering to me that even though somedays I don’t feel I’ve “done enough” to spend time with Him, He is always waiting with open arms. His mercies are new each morning! I’m so thankful for His love and grace!

    Blessings, Joan

    P.S. I love the new layout of your blog – very lovely!

    • So thankful for new mercies. Thank you for the comments about my blog design. I was able to do it all myself this time. Blessings!

  7. Barbie, I love your new tag line “Whispers of Grace”. I know I need His grace all throughout the day, every day. I can get caught up in doing my thing and ignore His promptings to draw near. What a great reminder to slow down and listen for His voice. Happy to be linking up with you today!

  8. This is beautiful. I love that God is always there with words of grace he wants to whisper. This reminds me of the importance of being quiet and listening for him as there are so many other voices that can distract us from his whispers.

  9. (((Barbie))) Such beauty in grace, isn’t there? So thankful He doesn’t let the enemy get the last word. He’s always right there with that whisper of grace. Thank you for sharing your heart so openly. You are an example of grace. (((blessings)))

  10. Beautifully written and very well said. There are so many ways that God whispers His grace to us. Thank you for the reminder of how awesome and gracious our God is. As our family faces new challenges this year, I’m finding that these frequent reminders are much needed, and incredibly helpful. This week we believe that God is giving us the grace to patiently press forward, knowing that He is willing and able to work all of our ups and downs for our good and His glory. Wishing you a blessed and grace-filled week.

    • Thank you so much for stopping by Jed. I have to stop and remind myself every day that His grace abounds, still more and more. Will be praying for your family and the challenges you are facing.

  11. I’m always so blessed by your quest for grace and truth. Blessings to you as you persevere – You’re like Jacob: “I won’t let you go until you bless me!” This takes boldness and courage, and my prayer for you today is that you would persevere in righteousness.
    Thanks for your faithful presence here.

  12. Barbie, your post brought to mind the song by Casting Crowns, The Voice of Truth. I have now listened to it 3X 🙂 May the voice of His truth drown out all other voices. May “His voice of truth tell YOU a different story”. Have a blessed weekend!

  13. Barbie, you are on a journey that will be full of wonder and transformation. These were my thoughts too: “I believe the Lord is taking me on a journey of truly leaning in and listening, hearing His voice among the noise and clamoring of life” when ‘listen’ was His focus word for me in 2014. It is well worth the pausing, praying, leaning in and listening and I can already see it bearing fruit for you in the way you write. Is it easy? No way. In a crazy-busy world it feels counter-intuitive to stop and make time to listen to God. And we still battle with hearing negative voices too that try to shut out His voice. So I love the way you’ve countered them here with the truth of God’s word!
    The lovely thing is that as we still our souls He rewards us with words which bless and encourage us and those we may share them with. We also have the gift of joy and peace in His presence. I still try to have those longer quiet, listening times and journal the journey. It’s good to look back and reflect on how God has led and fed us in the past because it builds faith that He will do so again. Praying that you will be greatly blessed in every way as you make more room for those Whispers of grace. <3
