We all wait for answers on various things. We wait to hear about test results, tryout auditions, questions to be resolved, investments to mature & the list continues endlessly. It seems to me that waiting is a universally human experience. So while we wait for answers, what can we do?
Here are some helpful suggestions:
- Exercise patience – in Luke 21:19, Jesus tells us, “In patience, possess your soul”. Easier said than done, for sure, but essential nonetheless!
- Keep working – sometimes it helps to work on other projects while we wait, so that we don’t waste time 🙂
- Chose to Trust – sometimes waiting is the best way to help us grow in our trust w God (Prov 22:19)
- Chose peace & reject worry – be active in this decision so that worry doesn’t consume you!
