Your whole life can change in just one day! It just takes one phone call from the right person. One letter of acceptance from the right company. One answered prayer to turn your whole life around. Just one!
You don't know much about me, so let me tell you a little. I'm a single mother of three handsome and talented boys and love watching them play sports. I love sports myself and play competitive volleyball. I love to workout, love to write and REALLY love my church. I think my lifestyle would be pretty normal to most people until they asked me if I'm dating anyone. That's when a conversation gets a little.....sticky.
Did anyone in the Bible ever get their promise without having to go through a time of testing and waiting? Anyone? Consider these people:
Oh the waiting! Seems like we are always waiting for something. Waiting for our kids to get bigger, waiting for more income so we can do more things, waiting for that right person to come along and all the other promises that God has given us. Somehow I must believe that the waiting is just as important as receiving those promises. But it's still a mystery. Why did Abraham have to wait 25 years for Issac? What happens during that time of waiting that is so important? I know that God doesn't waste even a second of our lives. Every moment he's working in us and through us. So what is he doing during those long waits?
