Right now, I am going through one of the most difficult waiting processes in my life so far. Some days are easy to wait, some days take everything I can to keep from fretting all day about something I have absolutely no control over.
There is a song called “While I’m waiting”. In this song, it says “While I’m waiting, I will serve You. While I’m waiting I will worship. While I’m waiting I will not fade. I’ll be running the race even while I wait.” I think the hardest thing to do while we are waiting on God is to continue to serve and worship Him. It’s easy to think that by sitting back and waiting on God, without doing anything to grow in Him, we are going to hear from Him quicker. We think we will be less likely to “miss” what God is telling us. However, God tells us to wait expectantly. That means to be watching, serving others, worshipping, and waiting all at the same time.
God has shown me, already, things that I would have missed if I had just sat back and waited for God’s plan to unfold. These were things I learned through serving Him, worshipping Him, and watching for signs of Him. God doesn’t want us to fret and worry during waiting periods, but He wants us to trust that He is working. He is God, no matter what, and He deserves our praise, no matter what.
Next time you’re faced with a waiting period, remember that sometimes the lessons are in the midst of service and worship. If you sit back and expect God to work, you may miss what God is trying to teach you.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
