Product Description

We're all waiting for something. It might be a spouse or a baby. It might be healing or a home. Regardless of what we're waiting for, it's easy to feel discontent when things aren't going as planned and our dreams are delayed-especially when questions of "Why?" and "How long?" remain unanswered.

God uses seasons of waiting to teach us patience and make us more like himself. But sanctification is not the only purpose God has in mind. When we wait faithfully with unmet longings, we become a powerful picture of the bride of Christ waiting for the day when he returns and God's kingdom reigns.

    "Seasons of Waiting" looked at why God often asks us to wait for something good and what to do while waiting. While we get some generalized reasons, the author also looked at five specific types of waiting: waiting for a spouse, for a baby, for physical healing, for a stable home, and for the return of a rebellious child or unfaithful spouse.

    The author pointed out people or parables in the Bible where waiting was involved and showed how waiting can be a parable for the gospel message. For example, waiting for a rebellious child helps us understand God's love for us and portrays God's love to others. She also explored how God is working during our waiting and what we can do while waiting, like mentoring other people's children while waiting for your own. She doesn't promise the wait will end in this life but rather that the wait has worth and will ultimately be fulfilled when Christ returns.

    Overall, I'd recommend this book to those who are struggling with waiting, especially if you're waiting for one of her five categories.

    I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
