Some of life’s richness and depth can be found precisely in the waiting places. This is good news, since we spend much of life waiting for one thing or another – from the mundane to the life-altering. We wait in line at the grocery store, and we wait for news of a diagnosis. If these waiting times are just something to plod through while we anxiously anticipate the real stuff of life, we are missing something.
During these times, we don’t know exactly how God will meet us in our uncertainty, sorrow or fear – only that God will somehow keep God’s promise to do so. When we don’t know what is coming next, we might wait with hope or fear, expectation or joy for God to work with us and through and even in spite of us. As God meets us, the waiting time itself can become transformative and holy.
