In The Waiting

Let me take you back to one night in October 2011
I was weary, unmotivated and frustrated with how my life was going. I had little passion, no purpose and no direction for my life. I knew in that moment I had to let go of control
So I prayed, “Lord, I surrender”

I had no idea that that one little prayer would lead me on a path I never imagined
Since that very night the Lord has placed dreams and visions in me I never knew existed
He has taken me on an adventure I never dreamed of and He has answered prayers better than imagined.
Here is the thing I have learned through this journey He has me on;
We all have dreams
We all have longings
We all have desires
And if our hearts are surrendered to Him, then we can be confident that He WILL fulfill them
And God has been so faithful to answer some of my deepest longings and desires, but I am still praying for some to be answered

And I bet YOU are, too.

There is a saying, “when God closes a door, He always opens another one”
But sometimes we forget that there is always a hallway in between the doorways
Between the answered prayers is a time of waiting
How do we stay trusting God In The Waiting?
How do we live boldly and confidently In The Waiting?
How do we live faithfully In The Waiting?
How do we stay strong In The Waiting?
How do we continue to enjoy our journey In The Waiting?
How do we live in expectation during our moments of In The Waiting?
My hope and vision for In The Waiting ministry is not only to share what I have learned through my journey, but for you and other women, to share your journey of In The Waiting, too.

Let’s empower each other to live boldly and confidently, with GREAT expectation while In The Waiting.
