In The Waiting~

Have you ever been in God's waiting room?






You prayed for an answer.




(Silence)




You prayed for God to move.





(Stagnation)





You prayed for God to open doors.





(Stillness)




Waiting.




It's not easy.






God IS faithful, we know this to be true.



But.....



Why?



WHy?



WHY?



Why does God sometimes choose to delay?





Why do we have to wait?














Could it be



- in the waiting -



we discover if WE are faithful?






Will we wait





UNTIL the answer comes,






UNTIL God moves,





UNTIL the door opens?









Will we persevere in prayer?


Waiting for Grownups


Maybe God is waiting to see~



I wait for the LORD, my soul waits,
And in His word I do hope. ~ Psalm 130:5

  2. Oh Stacy. So interesting that we both posted on waiting in prayer. Thank you so much for the quote from E M Bounds. He also said, "If you awake in the night and are unable to sleep; it is because God wants you to pray." I try to pray at night when I awake.
    We do just have to wait on God, persevering in prayer.

  5. I hate waiting for any reason so the times I'm waiting on God seems eternal. Thank you for bringing this truth clear to me -- that God wants to know that we will remain faithful.

  6. Waiting is never a fun process, but it is during the waiting that we are given the opportunity to make wise choices.

  7. Yes! It's in the waiting that our faith grows as we rely on Him and not ourselves. Great questions!
