Ready, Set, Wait...
Sooner or later everyone encounters the Wait: an unpredictable quantity of time spent awaiting the attainment of some deep inner longing. For you it may mean wanting a child in the midst of infertility, desiring a mate with whom to share your life, or hoping for a job after a long period of unemployment. Whatever the circumstances, the Wait is one of life's most confusing and painful periods.
But times of waiting can be extremely productive in terms of spiritual growth. The struggles which intended to rob us, have instead been the proving ground where we finally claim our true riches of faith. Using vivid stories of others who have defied the slow-going odds of the Wait, the book points you to the power of God's grace and the comfort of his love.
