Wait … #fmfparty

Wait … #fmfparty

Today is Friday & it is time for Five Minute Friday. The word for today is WAIT. Five minutes. No editing.


Wait for the traffic light to change.

Wait for the test results.

Wait for that vacation.

Wait for the big game.

Wait for start time.

Wait for Christmas morning.

What about life decisions. Do you allow yourself to wait on God? Why does it seem easier to wait on things in life (out of our control) but struggle to wait on God to give us direction. Waiting is part of life and something we do well and horrible at times. Some of us understand waiting and embrace it, others of us dig our heels in and fight it.

I find myself in a season of waiting on God. Waiting on healing of hurts in my heart. Waiting on life direction. Waiting on clarity and answers. I am learning that my waiting should be an active time. A time where I leaning into God’s word; praying; walking forward. There are times that I want to simply stay still. I don’t want to move. I want to dig my heels in and fight the waiting. I believe that God is good so I know that this time of waiting is good for me.

Whatever I find myself waiting on today and in the weeks to come, I am going to embrace the wait and have joy.

    Oh to embrace waiting and have joy no matter what the circumstances. This is the way to bring God glory during the season of waiting, and to allow Him to teach and change me during this season. Thank you for sharing this. I am stopping by from five minute Friday.

      Thanks for stopping by. A life long lesson that we get to learn on the journey of life.

    I agree, Gail! Life is nothing but seasons of waiting and it’s our choice how we want to get through them. I’ve decided to embrace the wait, too, and look for the joy sprinkled throughout.
