There are often times in our lives that we find ourselves in a time of waiting. This season of life can look different for everyone. Some might be waiting to hear from a doctor, heal from an injury, begin a relationship, start a business, hear from a family member, find their dream job, see COVID restrictions lifted, or to see a seed of hope come from a hopeless situation. There are so many ways in which God asks us to wait throughout life, often making us wonder why it feels like He has forsaken us. I recently came across the blog post below and thought it was filled with encouragement for those who find themselves in the waiting. The verses it offers bring comfort and hope for hearts that may feel discouraged. The Lord is in the waiting. He does not withhold good things from those who walk uprightly. During this season, we remind ourselves to press further into the heart of God, instead of growing distant or callous. Often by waiting and engaging in prayer, our desires are shaped to look more like Christ; our character is matured and our dependence on Christ is strengthened. We must remember to place our ultimate trust in what does not change, the promises of Christ. Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever, making Him the safest place to anchor our unwavering confidence. The promises of The Lord assure us and give us hope to hold onto even when we feel like we are missing out on our deepest desires. Christ is not slow to fulfill His promises, He is right on time and unrelenting. If you open your heart to Him, He will reveal more of Himself and give you a deeper love for His character. Take a second to read through some of the promises the Bible offers us in the waiting and be encouraged by the faithful kindness of our Father.
