That’s what my husband and I call them. I think we made that word up..spellcheck doesn’t like it! Those times in life when things you have been waiting for suddenly start to happen. Often it seems like they will never happen and we grow weary waiting for them. All the waiting leads to discouragement and sometimes depression. We have all heard that God’s timing is different from ours.. I can’t tell you how many times I have told people that very thing.. yet it is so difficult to remember when the waiting is almost unbearable.
Our God is faithful and He understands that without hope we cannot continue. Repeatedly He meets us in the waiting room to remind us that He is faithful. He brings encouragement just when we think we cannot go on for another day. While we are waiting He is working behind the scenes preparing things for us. He is moving and getting things ready for that new season. He knows the desires of our heart and He has not forgotten us.
Are you still in the waiting room? Some waits are much longer than others.. some last for many years.. Don’t give up. Don’t lose hope. He knows what your heart is longing for and when the waiting is over there will be a season of suddenlies.
“Wait patiently for the Lord. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.”
