Waiting Well was a topic I broached on my Facebook and Instagram accounts this past week. I shared that I plan to do a series in November on waiting well.
Well, We’re Waiting!
But, Are We Waiting Well?
We are all waiting on something aren’t we? Waiting for the election to be over. We are waiting for a COVID-19 vaccine so that we can get on with our lives. I know that there are things in my life that I’m waiting on. There are things in your life that you are waiting on. But, are we waiting well? Are we leaving those days of waiting to rust/ ruin, or are we allowing them to transform us into the people that God wants us to be.
I first explored the concept of waiting well in October of 2012. I was reading a blog by a young woman who was waiting to get pregnant. She posted every day that October about waiting well. I certainly wasn’t waiting on pregnancy, but as a 48 year old widow, I was waiting for the terrible grief I was experiencing to subside. Her words from an entirely different circumstance, helped me so much. Each year after, when October rolls around, I think about her. She did get her baby through adoption, but a few short years later, her husband was diagnosed with MS. I’ve searched for her blog, but it is no longer available to read. I wonder what happened to her!
What Are You Waiting For?
I hope through this series in November, I can unpack for us what it means to wait well. What is God’s expectation of us in our waiting?
If you have a situation that you think others could benefit from, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll try to find some answers to your waiting, and in the process, we can help others.
Thank you to those who have already reached out to me after my Facebook and Instagram posts! It means so much.
Have a great weekend. We actually have friends in this weekend. We are about to leave to head out to explore the beautiful fall leave and mountains here in New Mexico.
