Chapter Twelve – God Calls Us to Wait

Whew…I have made it to the end of this book and therefore the end of this book study!  Yay, me!  I have learned quite a bit along the way.  Although I never intended for this study to last this long, sometimes you have to slow things down a bit to take care of the ones you love.

In all that we have learned during this study about finding our path, hearing God’s voice, understand our personal communication with Him and getting to know Him better, I think that learning to wait helps us to really see God working in our lives.  Sometimes the wait seems like forever but as we have come to know, when God finally responds He does more than we could have ever imagined.

Truth be told, we all continuously find ourselves in a waiting period.  Currently, I am waiting for a job promotion, waiting to purchase my very first home and waiting to get married.  Just waiting.  For me, the hardest part about waiting is that I ain’t getting any younger!  Time is not about to slow down for me and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it.  In the meantime, however, I am reminded in Galations 6:7-10, not to give up and to work for the good of myself and others.  All the things I’m waiting for will be here soon enough.  I just need to allow God to use this waiting period to get me prepared for when they do arrive…developing my patience.

Be patient and persevere…:)
