Product Description

We live in an age of instant gratification characterized by immediate resolution and answers on-demand. Yet that's never been the way that God has dealt with His people. With welcome candor, Beth Lueders considers the familiar feeling that sometimes God is unwilling to respond to our needs on our time frame. Using a wealth of illustrations from the Bible, she notes that when situations look their worst and we are weary from waiting, God steps in and proves that he is all-powerful, loving, and wise. God wants to open our near-sighted eyes to the vivid depths of his immense character.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Beth Lueders

    Tell us a little about yourself.   I grew up in a rural Nebraska town of less than 175 people, but God has allowed me to travel the world and meet so many incredible people through my work as a journalist. I love the outdoors and feel quite blessed to live in the beauty of Colorado. I enjoy sharing my sense of humor and making people laugh. (You’ll find touches of my humor throughout Two Days Longer.) For more personal and professional details about me, visit my Web site, MacBethCom.com.

    What was your motivation behind this project?   God. He truly led me to the theme of waiting on Him. As I was originally brainstorming book ideas, I jotted down these questions: Why do I trust God when life circumstances say, “curse God and die”? What is it about this God that keeps drawing me closer to His heart? How has God shown me His character as I’ve waited on Him and endured? Suddenly my book theme of enduring through tragedy expanded into seeing God’s character through enduring and waiting. Then He led me to John 11:6, and the “two days longer” in this verse became the book’s title. My passion and drive for writing Two Days Longer comes from my deep desire to help people follow the steady voice of God in all of life’s trials and triumphs.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?   My prayer is that readers will come away with a fuller view of God and His amazing character. I also hope the book encourages and bolsters anyone who is weary from waiting. I understand the pains of deferred hopes and dreams. I’ve grappled with the angst and anxiety of waiting for marriage and children. For twenty years I’ve endured chronic physical pain. I’ve braved the years as mental illness crippled and cancer eventually killed my mother. I’ve waited alongside my dying father in his twelve-year battle with cancer. I know the frustrations of losing jobs and waiting for promised income. Yet in life’s postponements and holdups, I’ve experienced the joy and hope that only God can offer. I pray that Two Days Longer refreshes readers with this same joy and hope. May we all learn to trust and rest in our always-on-time Creator.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?   My greatest inspiration is God’s Word. I’m constantly amazed at how God uses the Bible to deliver perfectly timed messages in our point of need. A couple of my favorite authors/speakers include Max Lucado, Beth Moore, Chuck Swindoll, Anna Quindlen, and Patricia Cornwell. I’m also a fan of musical artists Margaret Becker, Point of Grace, Nichole Nordeman, Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin, and the list goes on.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:   I’m working on sequel to Two Days Longer so stay tuned. God is always worth the wait!
