Just. You. Wait.
Not everybody waits well.
If you’re waiting, it’s because we all do. Waiting can be a long and painful fact of life-and it’s one of God’s favorite tools. In these pages, Tricia Lott Williford helps you find the joy hidden in the discipline of waiting. You’ll discover that God is for you, working in your longing, becoming, and awakening, even when you can’t see what he’s doing. Waiting well may be some of the most important work you’ll ever do.
You don’t have to like waiting. But you can embrace the wait with hope, courage, and laugh lines. And along the way, you’ll learn a lot about who God is and what you’re made of. When you learn to wait well, you can say, "Look out, world: I am getting ready to shine. Just. You. Wait."
Everybody waits. We wait for a spouse, wait for a baby, wait on our children, wait for our parents. We wait for clarity and direction. We wait on a job, a promotion, a new direction. We wait for hope, for healing, and for miracles. We wait on God. And when we misunderstand what waiting is about, we can get confused about what God is up to. Waiting is one of God’s favorite tools. He can do certain things in our hearts, our lives, and our relationships while we wait-things we cannot experience once we’ve opened the gift we have been waiting for. So just you wait, because everyone takes their turn in the waiting room. It’s a long and painful fact of life, but shortcuts and microwaves aren’t the answer. God is at work behind the scenes in invisible ways you can’t see . . . yet. Just you wait and see how ready you’ll be if you spend your waiting well. Because when your opportunity comes, you don’t want to spend more time on the bench. When you wait well, you can say, "Look out, world: I am getting ready to shine. Just you wait." In these pages, Tricia discusses the joy hidden in the discipline of waiting, and the practices of believing God is for you and working on your behalf, even when the work of His hand is hard to find.
