Why the Wait, Lord?

Learning to Respond to Our God, Who Is Never in a Hurry
  • By Laura Simpson
Product Description

We hate to wait, especially when it concerns the greatest desires and intimate aspects of our lives. However, seasons of waiting propose unique challenges along with specific opportunities for growth. The problem is not the waiting, the problem is how we respond to the waiting. How we respond determines what we learn and what others learn about God through our situation. The Bible gives us insight and examples of how to appropriately respond to the seasons of waiting in our own lives that are out of our control.

This study was originally written as a tool to help the author answer her own questions concerning areas of disappointment and waiting in her own life.

"I'm in my 30's and single, will I ever get to be a wife and mother? Do I move across the country for a change? How do I comfort friends as they wait through struggling marriages, infertility and family illness? Why is there always so much time involved in the in-between?"

Why the Wait, Lord? will explore the spiritual benefits of embracing our seasons of waiting through vivid examples of some influential women in the Bible, such as Sarah, Mary and Anna. These examples are important because not all situations were created equal, but our response is key to intimacy with God. This study walks the reader through a combination of selected passages of Scripture repeated in different translations, question/answer format, word studies, cross referencing, journaling and specific prayers to apply the biblical principle studied each week in an effort to move from Words on a page to truth etched in a heart.
