The Weekend Brew: When The Sky Speaks

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

HeavensDeclare

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.

The Weekend Brew: The Promise of His Goodness

By Barbie   /     Aug 22, 2014  /     The Weekend Brew  /     29 Comments

Land of the Living

Sometimes life catches you off guard, and you have to fight to keep your perspective. As seasons change, it’s easy for me to fall into the “what if’s” and “if only’s”.  But staying there in that place minimizes the promise of the power of God in my life.  Reflecting on what could have been, or even what might be, good or bad, steals away the now moments and clouds my vision of the work that God is doing in my life right at this moment.

When life gets hard, and fear tries to creep in, I only have one place to go and that’s straight into the arms of Jesus. Only there is confusion silenced and fear laid to rest.

The Weekend Brew: God Is Faithful Through The Wilderness

By Barbie   /     Aug 16, 2014  /     The Weekend Brew  /     28 Comments

God is Faithful

God is good.  All the time.  I know this to be true.

In hard seasons, I recall His promises to me in His Word.

  • His promise to remain faithful, even when I am not.
  • His promise to love me, even when I am unloveable.
  • His promise to never leave me, although at times I turn from Him.
  • His promise to provide for my every need, even though I feel desperate and lacking.

But I’ve tasted and I’ve seen His goodness.

When my husband lost his job in 2008, I saw His goodness.  Despite disappointment and loss, discouragement and all of the what ifs, He remained faithful.  There was so much unknown to us during that time, yet our path was covered with His grace and we were girded up by His strength.

The wilderness way is a hard journey.  It’s hot and sticky.  It’s dry and without refreshing rain.  It’s dirty and messy and is devoid of anything that resembles life.  But throughout all of it, His goodness remains.  Even in times of lack, He remains faithful.
