In the Wait

As the year quickly draws to an end, many of us get into that solemn ‘reflecting’ mode. We ponder the what ifs, muse over the triumphs and defeat, the hits and misses. Occasionally we begin to mull over what we call ‘unanswered prayers’. Such were my thoughts this weekend as I drove to church. In the almost reverent silence of this sanctuary on four wheels, a calm sense of peace bathed over me. These words poured out from a deep place. I leave them with you today:

I don’t claim to understand God’s timing. One thing I have come to discover is – it never resembles mine. Through the years, however, life has revealed that He is never late. I share the words above with you today. You might be one of the those who have become ‘weary in waiting’. You struggle with the unknown and what seems to be a silent God. You hear nothing. Your faith waivers from time to time. You are not alone. May you be graced with patience and strength as you remain in peace – in the ‘wait’. This I know – He is a faithful Father.

***Thanks for reading – Be encouraged in this season of ‘wait’.

  1. Your words could not have been better timed for today. A major life challenge hit us by surprise, my husband lost his job, our main source of income. Now, it is the “waiting” time for another job, and direction. So easy for doubt to creep in. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I think people misunderstand that ‘waiting’ does not mean sitting by idly and tapping your fingers impatiently. We can work while we wait. Rejoice while we wait. Occupy while we wait. Waiting is not an activity, it’s a state of mind.
