I never wanted this to be part of my story, but since it is, I have choices to make. Despite our heart’s desire being unfulfilled, it is important we make the daily decision to Live in the Wait. We need and want to continue living to allow God to work through our wait to bring Him glory.
For Ry and I, it is living intentionally. It is making it a priority to do the things we enjoy most. Not tomorrow, next month or next year, but now. We put it on the calendar and form a plan to fulfill whatever it is we want to say or do. It is sharing our story and encouraging others.
Know that Living in the Wait will look different for each person. It is reaching out for support from family and friends because WE are going through this, not me alone. It is choosing your attitude to reflect the heart of Jesus. This does not mean life will be easy or void of struggle. There will be days of anger, frustration, bitterness, sadness, why me, life is not fair, hopelessness (the list goes on and on). Trust me, I have felt and continue to feel these emotions.
The most important part is the attitude we choose and what we decide to do with our wait. No matter what, just keeping living. Take those breaths, thank God for another day and find comfort in knowing you can Live in the Wait.
What does Living in the Wait look like for you?
Please share with someone you know who could use some encouragement in the wait.
