stuck in the waiting

stuck in the waiting

(I wrote this in the Spring 2015. A lot has changed since then, but the feelings are real and maybe you can relate. That’s why I’ve decided to share this now.)

Ever feel like your life was just like a never-ending bout of rush hour traffic, stuck in the waiting?

That’s where I am. That’s where I’ve been for a while now…and honestly, my feelings on it have fluctuated quite a bit.

I’ve been frustrated.
I’ve felt defeated.
I’ve been confused.
So overwhelmed.
I’ve been filled with peace.
I’ve been reassured.
I’ve been encouraged.

We make these 5-year and 10-year plans for ourselves and then somehow they fall apart on us and don’t go as planned, here we are stuck in the waiting…wondering if we were crazy for dreaming big dreams, wondering if we are the only ones stuck in the waiting.

But then again, there’s something very sweet about time with the Lord during this waiting. He is SO gracious and full of love. He reminds me that there is purpose in the waiting. That even though everything in life feels like its on hold…He desires for me to live in the now, not for tomorrow. It will care for itself.

Exhale.

  • Yep. Waiting was my middle name for three years while we waited on Mali Grace to come home. You are right, though. The LORD was so gracious and taught me so much during that time. Thank you for sharing your heart. <3
