When God Says "Wait"
When God Says "Wait": Navigating Life's Detours and Delays Without Losing Your Faith, Your Friends, or Your Mind
By Elizabeth Laing Thompson
When we’re waiting, we wonder, Why?, Why me? and How long?
But the truth? …
When God says “wait,” He doesn’t tell us for how long.
When God says “wait,” we face one of life’s greatest tests.
When God says “wait,” we have decisions to make.
When God says “wait,” we can control only two things: how we wait and who we become along the way.
Author Elizabeth Laing Thompson invites you to walk alongside people of the Bible who had to wait on God … imperfect heroes like David, Miriam, Naomi, Sarah, Joseph and others. Their stories will provide a road map for your own story, helping you navigate the painful, lonely territory of waiting, coming out on the other side with your faith, relationships and sense of humor intact. They might even help you learn to enjoy the ride.
This book is about the journey of waiting, the space between answers and the people we become while we live there.
