Waiting to Wait


In life there are seasons, seasons where you move and seasons where you wait. Currently, after a huge season of moving, literally and figuratively, I have arrived in my season of waiting. Looking back at the last 6 months of my life, I thought God was preparing me for the move… But He was actually preparing me for the wait. It can be misconceived that the move is more important, to expect the majority of your growth to come from that season. However, the wait has its own importance, and is just as sweet as the move. The wait, the wait is where God lives; the wait will produce just as much growth as the move. The move is not easy by any means. Moving is busy and often extremely hard. The wait, the wait is still. I don’t know about you but I am more comfortable being busy as opposed to being still. Yet, it seems that the majority of life is spent in the peculiar season of waiting. God places you in a season of waiting, preparing your heart and soul for His move. God urges you to move in faith, trusting that His plans are better than your own. After the move, God is still there, in the waiting. He is preparing you for His next move, however long that may be. God is there, no matter your circumstances of waiting and/or moving. God will make Himself known in the move and in the wait.

Taking advantage of the wait:

  1. Spend time in God’s word and in meditation & prayer.
  2. Be still. As hard as that may be, God is calling you to rest in Him and His grace.
  3. Be vocal. Cry out to God! Let Him know when you are frustrated. He is after all, a God of comfort.
  4. Become broken. God knows your heart; don’t try to hide your brokenness from Him.
  5. Don’t be afraid to move. When the time comes, God will push you to move. Do it!

Every follower of Jesus is on their own, unique, journey. But we do all have one thing in common; our souls are waiting and anticipating eternity!
