  1. Barbie, thank you for your transparency! I pray that you will find the refreshing and contentment your heart longs for! It is hard to climb out of a rut, but as you said the Lord helped you out once before! I’m sure He will again! Thank you for sharing so openly and vulnerably!

  2. I pray your week has been encouraging – and even the words here from your on-line community have been helpful. Praying that each day includes even more glimpses of God’s beauty. Life certainly can hurt….but what a hope-filled life it is for the children of God! Thanks for sharing your heart….

  3. We sure would miss you if you stopped showing up here! You are valuable!
    Praying with you for help getting out of your rut. May the Lord set your feet on the rock and energize you to go out and make some new friends. He wants to use you mightily. May He work whatever miracles are needed to get you where He wants you to be.
    Hey, I’ve started a new feature over at the blog called “Worship with me”. I invite you to join me there at your convenience. 🙂
    I love your scriptures and the rest of your list of things to be thankful for! Here’s another scripture that I was reading this morning: 2 Chronicles 20

  4. We all want to be missed – I must remember that Jesus must feel the same when I’ve stepped out of His presence. Bless you, Barbie, to know how to make your way with joy and peace.

  5. Oh Joy, thank you. Now I’m shedding tears of joy over this gift of an online community. I’m grateful God brought me to it.

  6. Thank you Gayl! Finding the beauty and coming to a place of contentment in my life is something I’m seeking. Blessings!

  7. And here the downside of online friendships comes to light – I want to give you the sweetest, longest hug right now, my dear, sweet friend! Your words make my heart ache. But I am encouraged too because I know that you know Whom you have believed and that you are convinced that He is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to you. And I am sure of this, that He Who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Praying that you will know the truth of His love for you in every way. Blessings.

  8. Barbie, thank you for being so open and honest with the hard places. I am sending prayers up for you, and gentle *hugs* for you, from someone who understands those dreary days!

  9. Sending hugs your way. Meditate in the present moment. Let the next hour or next day greet you when it comes. You are in a season–it feels like it will last forever, but it won’t. Breathe, cut yourself some slack, and trust that you will find the energy to get out of the rut when it’s time. Rest, my friend. xo

    • Oh Julie, thank you so much. This…”Let the next hour or next day greet you when it comes.” Thank you for ministering to my heart through your words.
