The Burden of Waiting

I've let far too many days pass since I have taken the time to write. Honestly, I've tried to keep myself busy just to keep my mind off of our adoption. This is my crazy season at work, and it has helped the days pass; however, not one day goes by when I don't think about our little one in the Philippines. Some days the waiting is unbearable; a weight so heavy, I simply cry out to God asking Him to move swiftly and give us an answer; and day after day, the sun goes down again in silence. Some days, I know I feel the prayers of others lifting me up, because the burden doesn't seem quite so heavy.

I don't know if you have ever had a season in your life where you had the great burden of waiting, but I want to encourage you today if you know someone who is enduring this season in their lives. Take time to pray for them and encourage them. Take time to really show you care and understand. Waiting on God's timing can be a heavy load to bear. It can be frustrating and stressful. It can be lonely. And yet I know the reward will be worth it all. I know on that day we finally get to meet our little girl, the days of waiting will melt away and the burden will be lifted from our shoulders.

If you are in a season of waiting, I want to encourage you today. Don't grow weary in waiting for God's answers in your life. Keep pressing on. The reward will be worth every minute, every hour, every day, every week, every month and every year of your wait. Ask others to pray with you and bear your heavy load with you, but NEVER give up waiting on God! He will come through! He is always faithful!
