Ladies, have you ever found yourself in a season of waiting? You could be in that season right now. Looking back and even presently I have experienced and am experiencing seasons of waiting. For each of us, our seasons of waiting can vary in terms of the duration of time. I’d like to encourage you with some nuggets of what you can do while you wait:

  1. Keep doing life. (Don’t put it on pause.)
  2. Seize opportunities as you see fit. (Figure out what your balanced plate should look like.)
  3. Find areas to grow in. (It could be a new skill/talent, or to strengthen a skill/talent.)
  4. Be a part of a genuine community. (See who you can encourage and pray for, and who can encourage and pray for you.)
  5. Find joy. (Don’t withhold the joy because you are waiting. See what and whom brings you joy.)
  6. Keep praying to God and reading God’s Word. (Encourage and strengthen yourself in the Lord.)

Which nugget do you find strikes a chord with you?

For me when I was in my season of waiting for a husband, I focused on all the nuggets. At different points in my season of waiting, there were some nuggets that I focused on more than others; however, nugget #6 was throughout all my seasons of waiting. I took the time to travel to various countries, went on mission trips, and published my first book. Honestly, I have no regrets. I met many people along the way. I had the opportunity to help people. I grew in confidence. I strengthened my gift of writing. I grew closer to God. The amount of journals I’ve accumulated over the seasons of waiting is a lot. That was my way of expressing myself, and letting God see my thoughts through my writing. These are some benefits I experienced during my season of waiting.

What are some of the benefits that you are experiencing in your season of waiting? I’d love to hear about them.

Isaiah 40:31 – “But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (ESV)
