Next time I decide to write a blog about waiting, I’ll certainly take a few minutes to reconsider. Yesterday morning, I wrote this lovely blog about the benefits of waiting. Little did I know that I’d be waiting for three hours for a delayed flight. Yesterday, I was forced to live in the “benefits” about which I wrote – easier said than done.
Sometimes we have “go seasons” where the waiting is over. These seasons can also be tricky to navigate for various reasons:
- we’ve adjusted to “waiting” so “going” kind of upsets the applecart,
- going can mean shifting into something unknown & for some folk that’s scary,
- going requires more energy than waiting
Let’s be careful that we don’t use the idea of waiting as an excuse for procrastinating. Let’s be careful that we don’t let fear keep us stalled in a waiting mode. Let’s be careful that we don’t use waiting as a justification for being disobedient to something God has told us to do.
There are waiting seasons & there are going seasons. The key thing is to stay in step with the Holy Spirit in every moment!
