Today I read this article, and it blew me away. It would have been most appreciated by me as a single woman, yet it ministered greatly still to this married woman’s heart, because it’s principles are biblical and universal.
What are you waiting for? Waiting isn’t just for single women. I’ve spent many a day waiting for . . .
- school to start/end
- my prince charming to come on the scene
- my wedding day to arrive
- babies to spring forth
- doctors in waiting rooms
- lab test results
- the ache to subside following miscarriage
- my husband to get better
- and hoping for another positive preganancy test
- sick children to get better
- sons to give their hearts to Jesus
- family members to reconcile
- my attitude to change
- personal growth
- friends spiritually blinded or hardened to truth to have their spirtual eyes opened
- God to reveal His will for the next step of my mission . . . waiting . . .
During the waiting times I am drawn to my knees in desperation. And there I find Him. A painful, lonely place is suddenly warmed by His light and love. I am no longer alone in my waiting places. And you don’t have to be alone in yours either.
“I just didn’t want to wait anymore – didn’t want to live like I was waiting on anyone to get here. I already have Him … and He is everything.” – Grace

Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!”
From Him comes my salvation.”
