4 Steps You Can Take While You Wait

Often, I’ve had great desires to do more in my life, be more and make more of an impact. With three small boys and a husband who was away from home eight months a year, I felt stuck in a rut.

I’d create a plan to do something valuable, put in a splash of prayer and a pinch of trust in the Lord and run. My arrogance of how I could accomplish it overran my belief that I needed God every step of the way.

I ran with my plan, not His. I included Jesus in my list, searched for the Scripture that fit what I wanted and prayed for it all to come together and fall into place. Then I’d bulldoze my way through life, trying to accomplish it all—unwilling to wait.

I spent too much time worrying about my call, impact and desires. I focused on my list, not God’s guidance, wanting purpose and meaning—but only if it fit into what I viewed as successful.

Trusting in God’s faithfulness day by day make us confident in His great promises for the future.

Putting our hope in God isn’t passive; it’s active. Those who hope in God wait for him, seek Him, receive His discipline and wait and trust Him. Are you willing to wait?
