Thank you Angela, (a blogger who loves our Lord and glorifies Him in her writings), at ( )  for nominating Settled In Heaven, for the Versatile Blogger Award.

Angela’s blog features a unique presentation of the principles of God’s Word that can be understood and beneficial to the young and old alike.  Personally, her blog has been a wonderful blessing to me and an inspiration for my ministry.


1. Add a picture of the award to your blog post.                                                                            2. Thank the blogger who nominated you and include a link to their blog.                               3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.                                                                                         4. Nominate other Bloggers and inform those they have been nominated.

Here are seven random facts about the role of my Lord in my life (in chronological order):

1. My Lord has graciously allowed me to live (and walk) on this earth for 53 years.  After being born with multiple birth defects (congenital neuro-sacral defect) that normally cause early death or, at the least, paralysis of the lower limbs.

2. My Lord blessed me with a wonderful, supportive family (parents and 2 sisters) that sacrificed so much for me during my early years at home.  I truly believe it was the Lord;’s use of  their love and care for me that I am alive today.  As I grow older, I am coming to a greater realization of all they have done on my behalf.

3. The Lord opened my sin-blinded eyes, broke my sinful heart, turned me to Himself, and granted me faith in Him and made my future secure in Him.  I did not deserve His forgiveness, patience and love.  I owe Him my everything.

4.  My Lord is blessing me everyday with a wonderful, Godly wife that is supportive of my ministries and loves me with an unconditional love. (Trust me, her love HAS to be unconditional to put up with me!)  After being married for 12+ years to Eva,  I still wake up every morning thanking the Lord for bringing us together.  Apart from the Lord Himself, she is my greatest source of encouragment, strength and care.

5. My Lord has also blessed me with a loving Mother-in-law that graciously puts up with me as well.  To be honest, she breaks the typical “mother-in-law” stereotype.  I actually enjoy spending time with her!

6. The Lord mercifully continues to work in my life, in spite of myself.  He forgives my daily sins and He continues to show me truths from His Word.  He graciously allows me to continue to preach, to write, and to study His Word. It is in His Word that I receive daily instructions for living my life on earth.  I praise and honor Him for His Word.  I truly do not know how I could live without it.

7. My Lord has blessed me with His peace. Although I do not know what tomorrow may hold, I know that He has me in His hands and He will never let me go… I am eternally secure in Him.

    Congrat and thank you for nominating me!

  3. […] you to my friend Rob Barkman at Settled In Heaven for awarding me as a Versatile Blogger. God works through Rob to bring us all a wonderful ministry. […]

  4. Rob, what a wonderful start to my day to read your testimony in 7 things about you! Praise the Lord!

    Today is usually my shopping day, but it is pouring rain. A storm warning with strong winds, heavy rain and flash flooding is forecast for today. Since tomorrow is a public holiday for Australia Day I can’t postpone it for a day, but I might see if it clears a little later today.

    I’ll check out your nominations for the award.

    • Rob, I just visited your wife’s profile but was unable to comment. I am not tech-minded. I tried a few ways but in the end it just deleted the comment. How do I leave a comment there?

      • Rob Barkman says:


        I know… her blog has got issues thats for sure! You can leave a comment by selecting the Name/URL option and then use your blog address for the URL. I hope that helps! Lord bless you!

    • Rob Barkman says:


      Im trusting the Lord you made it safely through your day… sounds like the storms were going to be pretty rough. Thanks again for the nomination, it has opened the door for me to share Christ in a different way than I normallay do on my blog. Lord bless you and keep you safe!
