Abandon // Five Minute Friday — 22 Comments

  1. Oh Barbie, this is so so true!
    ” it’s so much easier just to accept where I am than to fight.”
    I feel like I have allowed myself to accept where I am now even though I really know that I need to move on to something else God has planned.
    I totally agree too that we must be willing to abandon things that are holding us back to experience the fullness of the Lord. It could be anger, hurt, our own plans. I’m so glad that God is so gracious.
    Have a wonderful weekend!
    Blessings – Kelly

  2. That lukewarm place can be a dangerous place, but it’s clear your heart is set on Him, dear one. He will never leave us or abandon us. Blessings on your weekend!

  3. Barbie, you describe the struggle so well! I, too, battle the urge to live in less than God has designed me to live in and for. It’s easy to settle for good enough rather than press in toward God’s best. I’m working toward living a life of full abandonment to Jesus too. It’s a process, isn’t it?

    • It is a process. It’s hard, yet rewarding when we let go and allow Him full reign over our hearts and minds. Thanks for stopping by Jeanne!

  4. Reminds me of the song “Live with Abandon” by the Newsboys. I shared the video on my post. I’m in the 41 spot this week.

  5. I will keep pursuing a life of abandon, flying free in Jesus, along with you, Barbie. It can sometimes be such a tedious, up-and-down journey, but someday we will be dancing in victory full-time! Thank you for being honest about your struggles and yet at the same time pointing us to the only HOPE. Have a blessed, restful weekend! Hugs!

  6. Barbie,
    You are a cool lady…way beyond the doll! I love the photograph with scripture about the mud. I pinned it. 🙂
