Waiting In Faith

I can think of so many times in my life when I’ve experienced this. Impatiently waiting for God to do what He said He would do. I’m not just talking about my hopes and dreams or aspirations. Even the ones I think God planted in my soul, I’m talking about the things He told me to do. Like, writing my books or that I would have a loyal and Godly husband.

I remember vividly after I’d finished my first book, I was working hard to get it published, after all that was why a person write, right? But every door was closed to me. I cried in frustration and sought God and do you know what He told me…? “Wait! Just wait.” He didn’t want me to do anything at all at that time. As time passed, I would check in with Him to see if i was done waiting - like a child in the back seat whining, “Are we there yet?”

And then, more than a year later, everything fell into place and One Spirit One Church was published. But it kicked off the beginning of a difficult season in my life. It’s interesting to look back and see how God unfolded things for me. It didn’t look anything at all like I’d imagined. I think about King David running for his life after being anointed by Samuel - we know that was really hard for him from the Psalms he wrote. Psalms full of despair and sadness but also hope. But we know that the Lord was with him, and the Lord is with us!
