Why does God make us wait, knowing it can be so difficult? Why doesn't He act when time seems to be running out? Why does He answer some prayers in a moment and yet fulfill other promises after having us wait days, years, or even decades before the promise comes to pass?
Mark and Tammy Endres have asked these questions and more. Though Mark was born with only one functioning hand, God has told them-again and again-that His plan is for complete healing. In When Heaven Seems Silent they share the lessons they have learned as they wait-lessons that have forever changed their perspective of God and how He works in the lives of His children.

What do we do when there is a word that God is going to heal and yet nothing seems to happen for years, even decades?
This is what the Andres write about. Mark was born with a partially formed left shoulder and arm, and a bud for a hand. He and his wife started attending a church and small group where people would give words of knowledge. People indicated that God would be doing something miraculous to Mark's arm. Those words were confirmed time after time. They have been waiting twenty years for that miracle.
I am impressed with the depth of biblical understanding shared in this book. There is an excellent section on words of knowledge, hearing them, their purpose, and how to apply them. The authors explore why God might make us wait. They deal with the spiritual conditions that might prevent receiving a miracle. They explore what the Bible says about suffering and miracles. They include the stages one goes through while waiting, the doubt, anger, depression, etc. They are very honest about their own feelings, believing, waiting, and experiencing bouts of impatience. They share how they finally came to the place where they can say, We are content and expectant at the same time. (120)
This is an excellent book on how to handle the hard task of waiting on God. If you are feeling disappointed with God, this would be a good book to read. If you don't understand why you have not received what you are convinced God has promised you, this is a good book to read. If you are facing obstacles along your path of belief, this is a good book to read. The authors are realistic yet remain expectant that God will fulfill His promise. You will be encouraged to continue in faith while trusting God.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
