“I’M SICK OF WAITING!” Have those words ever described you the way they’ve described many others? What is it that makes us become so impatient and frustrated while we wait? Typically, it’s that we’re waiting for direction or understanding that hasn’t yet been revealed to us. We cry out to God begging for something…anything…yet the result may be silence from the One who loves us most. Any excitement we initially had can quickly turn to pain, heartache, frustration, loneliness and emptiness.
So, what’s the secret to persevering as we wait upon the Lord for answers? We must become desperate for God more than being desperate for His answers.
In her book, When Your WAIT Becomes Your WEIGHT, Amy Rauman encourages us to long for God while cultivating a life of prayer, trust, obedience, acceptance, transformation, and more.
God has purposely designed waiting times for us to draw closer to Him. Learn to become desperate for the face of God, rather than the hand of God.
Choose not to waste your wait—embrace it to the full!
