the waiting room

Sometimes, when we pray, God doesn’t say yes, but he doesn’t say no either.

He tells us to wait.

It almost would be better to hear no at those times. “No” provides closure, the end of the issue.

The waiting room is a tough place to be, where it’s hard to trust, hard to have faith.

You weren’t in the waiting room alone.

We were all there with you, praying, sobbing, misunderstanding.

Sometimes, God pulls us out of the waiting room and gives us an answer.

Sometimes its no.

Sometimes, its yes.

For you, it was yes, for you, the wait is over.

And you know what?

In some small way, I feel like God has said yes to me too.

    Okay fancy pants… seriously… you need to turn on word verification for your comments. You have one that has a link for “Indian Sex”. I don’t know what it is… but, it’s weird.

    Wish me luck… I have a job interview this morning!!

    And, what did you get that you wanted?

    I think that is one of the most painful lessons I have had to learn.
