“What do you do when the life God has promised you looks nothing like the life he has given you? We wait at red lights, in long lines, and for a person to change. But the most difficult waiting? Waiting on God.
We want to know God’s plan so that we can trust the plan–but often God hides his plan so that we will trust him. What can we do in the meantime while we wait for an answer to prayer, a change of heart, or a miracle of provision?”
Waiting On God: What to do When God Does Nothing by Wayne Stiles, is a book for those needing encouragement in a time of waiting on God. Using the life story of the Bible person of Joseph, the author both encourages and challenges the readers to keep on. Pointing out that God does not give up on us, and we are not to give up on Him even in those painful and lonely times when it seems He is silent.
Topics addressed include:
1. Living in the Gaps with God
2. The surprising place where waiting begins
3. When forgiving someone is hard
4. The hope of dying with unfulfilled dreams
5. Going backward, moving forward.
This is a fairly lengthy book at around 250 pages. It does contain good points for further reflection and consideration by the reader.
