It is hard to wait. I think this is a given fact. No matter what it is, it is hard to wait. Whether it is waiting for a relationship, employment, event, it is hard to wait. And yet, we all go through seasons of life where we are called to wait. It doesn’t matter how old you are or what stage of life you are in, we all have to wait.
Sometimes it is a short season of waiting. Sometimes it is a long season of waiting. Regardless, it is hard to wait. But even in those times of waiting, God is still present. He may seem to be quiet at times but He is still there. He is still at work and though we may not understand it in the time of waiting, it is for our good.
I keep praying that this waiting that I’m presently going through will end soon. But in the meantime, I just try to keep trusting in God to provide and get me through this.
There’s an old Tom Petty song that I think about when it comes to waiting. It is aptly titled “The Waiting Is The Hardest Part”. The chorus goes like this:
“The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part.”
