It’s tough to be in a place of waiting.
We can end up feeling consumed with questions, wants, and worries. And we can find ourselves wanting to rush things, to get past the wait as quickly as possible.
We forget that God’s waiting periods serve incredible purpose. We forget that He is doing significant things around us and in us during those times.
If you are feeling frustrated in the midst of a wait, pray this with me tonight:
Father God, help me to see the good You tuck into my times of waiting. Help me to rest in the truth of Your love when I am tempted to be consumed by worry and fear. I know that You are for me, and I choose to believe You are restoring me, not ignoring me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
