Five Minute Friday: On Waiting

Topic: On Waiting

Funny how I sit here waiting for words to come and nothing immediately pops into my head, so I start typing and hoping something will, kind of a literary fake-it-till-you-make-it. I've never cared much for waiting, but God has really done some rearranging in my heart in that area and I have found it's a little easier knowing that good things generally do come to those who wait. I did read once that the follow-up to that saying, though, is "...but only what's left behind by those who hustle", which I admit also has merit. Waiting to exhale...lady-in-waiting...waiting room...what are we waiting for? I've been asked that with regard to the book I'm supposed to be working on. I'm waiting on God. That sounds totally nose-in-the-clouds, but I assure you it is anything but. I keep hoping He will give me some kind of undeniable sign of exactly the pathway, a picture of the road sign, maybe, of the approach for this thing. And still I wait. And pray. And wait.

Time's up. (Shew!)

  1. Hi Lisa,
    I tried to post a comment and it threw me out as I wasn't logged into Wordpress.
    I wanted to tell you that I understand the waiting for God. If you go ahead of Him it can end in a mess.
    I am a writer sometimes, a watercolour artist sometimes and a potter sometimes. I find there is so much I like to do it is hard to choose. But one thing I do all the time is read the Bible, and read books written by Christian authors. So keep writing.
    I am a grandmother to 4 and my husband and I have been married for almost 40 years.
    Thanks for the post and I hope this comment goes through this time.
