Product Description

One of the greatest frustrations of the Christian life is having to wait for God to act. Some wait for a godly spouse, others for the gift of children, and still others for their dedicated work in the Lord to bear fruit. You too may be waiting, sometimes for years, for prayers to be answered and deepest longings fulfilled.

When God Takes Too Long examines the mysteries of God's timing and shows how you can thrive in the midst of one of life's greatest frustrations ... waiting. If you've been discouraged by a life of waiting, Bentz offers you a chance to alter not only your perspective on waiting but also your actions in response to it, transforming your frustration into a positive force that will enrich and change your life.

Publisher's Description

One of the greatest frustrations of the Christian life is having to wait for God to act. We wait, sometimes for years, for our prayers to be answered, for our deepest longings to be fulfilled.Some devoted Christians get stuck in dead-end jobs even though they feel certain they could serve God in greater ways if only He would open the opportunity. Why doesn’t He? Some wait for a godly spouse, some couples wait for the gift of children, and some, who have dedicated their lives to serving the Lord, wait in disappointed bafflement as their work seems to yield no fruit. Why?As Christians, we yearn to serve the Lord, to step forward and obey Him like the great heroes of the Bible, but we are confused, waiting for clear orders, kept at a distance by the invisible barriers of God’s silence, His inaction, or His unhurried pace.In When God Takes Too Long, Joseph Bentz examines the mysteries of God’s timing and shows Christians how to thrive in the midst of one of life’s greatest frustrations--waiting. He offers those who have been discouraged by a life of waiting a chance to alter not only their perspective on waiting, but also their actions in response to it, transforming this frustration into a positive force that will enrich and change their lives.When God Takes Too Long addresses:How not to wish (or wait) our lives awayHow to better understand the nature of timeHow to master the discipline of waitingHow to cast off the boundaries of time to view our lives from an eternal perspective

    I started to read this book and did not want to put it down. It really is helpful to know that one is not alone when they are going through their trials and that Just because God has not answered as fast as we would like Him to, does not mean He's not listening and already working in our lives. I highly recommend this read.
