When He Pulls You In // Glimpses Link Up — 16 Comments

  1. This made my heart hurt because I understand the agony of depression and how hard it can be to attend church when you feel so disconnected. That’s my experience right now. Thank you for sharing this and know you’re in my prayers.

    • Thank you so much Marie. It’s been this way since I was laid off as the pastoral admin 3 years ago. I was so involved in ministry and after the lay off there was a lot of hurt and misunderstanding and I’ve pulled completely out. But my kids all lead worship there and are thriving. I raised them up there. It’s been so hard.

  2. You have me in tears, Barbie. I’ve not dealt with depression like some have either, but I know enough about it to understand what you’re saying here. And to go to church feeling as you did, inspires us all. I’m glad God gave you those moments with him and with your kids.

  3. And Barbie this post reminds me of this truth: sheep feed sheep – sometimes going to church isn’t about getting “fed” but “feeding” – and this experience of yours is a perfect example. You and your husband in very quiet ways fed into your children. Isn’t that what “it’s” really all about?

  4. Sweet friend, I love this testimony of how God blessed your obedience. You’re in my prayers. May God continue to hold you close this week.

  5. Barbie,
    I deal with depression and anxiety as well, and what a beautiful reminder that God did not leave you on the outside, He blessed your obedience in getting to His House and He ministered to you through your daughter whom you have brought up to love Him. Praise that He is a good, good Father,
    Blessings and ((hugs)),

  6. So glad you were able to experience God’s presence like that and share that moment with your daughter. Those little reminders of his love and presence are precious! Praying for more of these moments for you this week!
