Heyy friends! Thank you SO much for being patient with me. I can't believe it's been five whole months since I last posted something!!
As I was cutting a mango today, trying to decide how I should spend the extra time I gained from my class being cancelled, the Holy Spirit brought this blog to mind. So here I am, about to try to write a post in twenty minutes...(Lord help me 😅).
When I planned this series last year, I wasn't planning on talking about waiting so soon...but I feel like God is prompting me to share about it today, and so I'm gonna talk to you about some things I've learned that have really helped me. You might not be waiting on relationships - maybe you're waiting on God to change your heart in a particular area you're really wrestling through or help you get through a really difficult season or something else. I think we're all in seasons of waiting, though, and so I pray this encourages you :).
If we were sitting in a coffee shop together (with cute green plants and everything ;) ), this is what I'd tell you:
Sweet friend, waiting is hard. I don't want to invalidate that at ALL. It is so so so so soooo sosososososooo hard. I feel you!! But it's the most refining thing at the same time, and it's in the waiting that I've grown the most. And it's okay that it's hard. God walks in it with you, and He understands and feels your pain...man, think about all the people God is waiting on to turn to Him and be saved! But God is patient our whole lives long, and He's not in a hurry.
