Journey To The High Places: On The Shores of Loneliness (Week 7)

Hinds Feet _ week7

Walking through a desert season will often leave you feeling lost and alone. Even though you want to believe that His Presence goes with You, I think the desert is purposely made to make one feel helpless and dependent. It forces us to reach forward into the great unknown, seeking the One we love with every ounce of strength we have left.

After wandering in the desert and accepting her circumstances with a heart of joy, Much-Afraid now finds herself standing on the shorts of loneliness. I believe the two work simultaneously together — the dry and thirsty land and the vast sea which separates us from the other side. These two work together to make us dependent on the One who has gone before us and continues to prepare the way.

The Weekend Brew: When The Sky Speaks

By Barbie   /     Aug 29, 2014  /     The Weekend Brew  /     40 Comments


I walked outside tonight to capture this awesomeness.  In that moment, when I made the choice to stop and be still, God spoke directly to my heart.

I heard Him say, “I am with you.”

I heard Him say, “You are safe in the shelter of My wings.”

I heard Him say, “My love for you is unending.”

I heard Him say, “There is beauty in the storm.”

I heard Him say, “My light will guide you.”

I hope these little messages from God’s heart to mine will minister to you today.

Holy-ghost DVD Cover (new spine)

The Holy Ghost, or Holy Spirit, is the third person in the Trinity.  Often, He is the most forgotten and misunderstood. I have to admit, that for the years that I’ve been walking with Jesus, I’ve placed more emphasis in knowing God as Father and Jesus as my friend and Savior, than on Holy Spirit — the One who comforts, directs, breathes life and works miracles in my life.

I have seen all of the other films produced by Wanderlust Productions, and each time I sat mesmerized and amazed at how God shows up powerfully when we decide to get out of the way and allow Him to direct our paths, to truly lead us in the way we should go.
