I am in a season of waiting. Have you been there?

It is a very specific, very intentional season. A season that God has ordained and inspired and has walked me through, step by step.

Sometimes I hate this season. I want to run away, do things on my own, fight, yell, kick and pout. But in the end, God gently pulls me back to this safe, familiar, oh-so comforting yet refining place that I know is exactly where I need to be.

Waiting is not easy.

Waiting is not painless

Waiting takes self-control and trust and faith and hope in His promises.

Waiting is hard work.

But the things He has taught me have taken my breath away. Time and again, He takes my breath away.

A few days ago my dear friend sent me this video. She had not known that God was walking me through a period of waiting yet knew that this video was something I would love.

So, I thought I would share it with you. No matter what you are waiting for, these are good words to hear.



  1. It's so worth the wait! So worth it! While you're waiting, enjoy a lazy Saturday morning, a pan of brownies, and even a really cute work outfit day. I miss those things!

  2. I don't love waiting. But it is worth it.

  3. How funny - I just read Ecc. 3 yesterday...And yes, there is a time for waiting. And it is one of the hardest things for me to do. People equate it with "doing nothing" but it is NOT. Praying for you in this season... and thinking, maybe, it would be more fun to wait in Oklahoma? ;-)

  4. I needed this. Miss you.

  5. Ughhh. I hate waiting. Hang in there girlie.

  6. Wow! What a video! Thanks so much, Sarah, for posting this!--Deborah
