The waiting place…
Dr. Suess wasn’t wrong.
The waiting place is often dark and lonely.
It seems to drag on and on and on.
Waiting to hear.
Waiting to go.
Waiting for a turn.
Waiting for what’s next.
It isn’t easy.
But in the waiting, God transforms us.
We wait with prayer.
We invite others to pray and wait with us.
We build connections.
We prepare for what’s next.
We strengthen ourselves and allow God to strengthen us too.
It isn’t a bad place.
It isn’t a good place.
It’s a place we all go through multiple times.
And we shouldn’t fear it.
Because at some point we realize that we are so much better having gone through it and emerging stronger on the other side.
Until Everyone Hears,
Psalm 130:5 I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope.
