God has started something in me.
This topic of waiting for Him… I have only scratched the surface.
This waiting topic taps into
the purposes of suffering,
our reliance on God,
what or Who we love most.
I’m frustrated because there will only be five posts after this one about waiting. Only five times to write during this 31 day challenge I took. And I haven’t delved into compelling Scripture stories, or Advent and Christ’s return, or the connection between Sabbath Rest and waiting, or how our longings sometimes turn into idols.
So many of the things I want to say are still mysteries to me. I see glimmers of truth that I can’t wrap my mind around, much less verbalize. So I continue to study.
So many of the things I want to say don’t fit well in blog format. I dream of creating a curriculum that walks readers through Biblical stories about and wisdom regarding waiting. I want to point people to God’s Word, and show them how to find those truths with their own eyes.
Oh, if I can write and direct to God those who wait for spouses, children, healing, forgiveness, opportunity… God, let it be.
This series will end after five more posts…
But there are still five posts to fill with truth. And my own quest to understand waiting on God continues.
As I continue my studies, can you refer me to resources on waiting? Books, blogs, songs, curricula?
I had several books delivered to my Kindle today. I’ll let you know how they are. (List below)
Also, would you be interested in a free curriculum about finding God in your wait? I think I’ll get started writing it as soon as this series is over, then make it available for you to print from your computer.
