Weak // Five Minute Friday — 24 Comments

  1. Barbie, your posts always fill me with energy! His word is definitely a balm to my heart when I need it most, but sometimes I just don’t recognize that need. I am so glad though that God meets me right where I am and reminds me with His love and grace.

    If you could, I would appreciate prayer for some direction. My husband and I are both seeking the Lord on some clear direction. Thanks!

    Have a wonderful week, Barbie. Thank you for the blessing.

    • I’d be honored to pray for you and your husband Kelly. Asking God to make His path clear to both of you and to bring a confirming Word to your heart and spirit. Blessings on this beautiful Sunday!

  2. I’ve been sitting with your post all day, Barbie. It resonates so strongly. The existing vs. living, the disappointments. The things of this world fall heavy on shoulders that were never meant to bear these burdens alone. Meeting with Him at dawn, checking in throughout the day, this is the rhythm I am trying to learn. Letting Him carry the burdens and guide my way. Thank you for the reminder that it all begins with Him. Blessings on your weekend, my friend.

    • Thank you June. I am trying to be okay with the “checking in throughout the day”. I still have some religious bounds to break. Love having community with you.

  3. This was beautiful and hauntingly true for me as well. Glad to know that I’m not alone in this struggle and that I found you on FMF today. Praying for you, sister and thanking you for the encouragement!

  4. Five minutes of writing has left us all with the affirmation that we aren’t alone in this struggle with the Word girl. You are spot on, Barbie, when life gets bumpy that Bible seems to get knocked out of the way. When truthfully we need to put it in front of us and make it MORE of a priority thru the difficult seasons. GREAT post! love this. love you. love your heart to share God’s Truth!

  5. Barbie, how merciful of our God to bring us His strength in our weakness. I am so grateful that He knows we are weak and He is moved with compassion to respond to us. Blessings, sweet friend!

  6. Hi Barbie,
    I’m so glad to see you here at FMF. I used to read your posts at another link-up that is no more. Good to be reading them again. Especially this one. How well I (unfortunately) identify: “my heart closes up and truth bounces off and I forget to lay hold.” But He always seems to send reminders, doesn’t He? That’s what this prompt word was for me (and previous ones, lately). Actually there’s a lot in this post of yours that I identify with. I’m going to be praying for you. God bless–and strengthen you!
