When The Plan For Your Life Changes // Glimpses Link Up — 31 Comments

  1. Barbie –

    This was such an encouragement to me this afternoon. Wherever God leads and whichever the path leads…there is beauty to be found, enjoyed and shared along the way. How special when we finally see the beauty – when it’s been there all along:) God truly is so good!!

  2. It’s so hard when our plans go awry or much-loved seasons in our lives must end. Our Potter slowly molds us to be more pliable in His hands, doesn’t He? I love the witness you give in your life of how God is with us through the rough places and He brings beauty out of ashes. Love and hugs to you, Barbie.

  3. It makes my heart happy to read all you are learning along this bumpy road we call life. God has brought you to a place where you can live multi-generational under one roof. You have a job that you just shared you love. Yay! God is so good and walking this journey with you shows me the glory of God.

  4. I think we’ve all had those confusing seasons, when things don’t work out quite the way we had planned or expected. It’s so good to know that God is not outside of those times, but guiding them and growing us in the process.

  5. I’m right there with you, Barbie. Unexpected changes come, but God is with us through it all. I’m also trying to look for the beauty in every day.

    Blessings to you!

  6. I so understand what you are saying! Even when I think that I am surrendered & holding loosely to my own plans, I find myself shook up when those plans change. Thank you for these great words to look for the beauty of the Lord in the transitions!

    • In those times I lose sight of Who it is that is leading me, even through the dark and uncertain places. I’m so thankful He’s patient with me.

  7. Switching gears can be SO hard. I had my life planned out from teenage years onward. I don’t think anything went exactly as planned. ha. But in the end, I’ve had a very fulfilling and purposed life. There are definitely things I could have done better, but God has redeeming power even for those moments. Thanks for sharing this hope, Barbie.

    • You’ve been in my prayers. It’s so hard to let go and let God have control sometimes. I pray you’ll come back and link up! Problem has been resolved.

  8. I have Julie Andrews’s voice singing “These are a Few of My Favorite Things” after having read this lovely list of blessings. Thanks, Barbie!

    Have you noticed that there’s a problem with the link up this morning?

    • Oh I love that song too. Thanks for the heads up MIchele. I wasn’t feeling well last night and I guess I forgot to actually add the link up to the post. It’s there now!
