Waiting..for how long? can be so hard for us humans. 

Waiting for the wonderful smelling cookies to be done, waiting to get out of school classes, waiting for the bus to come, waiting for the paint to dry, waiting for the clothes to dry. 

But, waiting sometimes gets hard (and boring), so sometimes we stop waiting.....and things get messy. 

The cookies come out of the oven under-baked or the clothes get easily wrinkled or we miss the end of class and don't get the homework assignment or we get paint all over our fingers. 

When I was 15 years old I made a promise to wait for something. But, this wasn't something that took ten minutes or even an could take years. The thought of having to wait that long, at that time, seemed impossible. 

I'm sitting here today still waiting. It hasn't been an easy wait at all, but I've gotten used to the idea that God will end the wait when he feels I'm ready. 

Curious about what I'm waiting for? My Knight (in shining armor)! 

I write him letters most nights and I pray for him throughout the day and I still wear the ring I got almost 5 years ago to remind me of what I'm waiting for. The moment I tell him those magical words on the altar and then sucumb to his long-awaited love. What a glorious day that will be!

Sometimes I tell God that it's too hard to wait any longer, but he always gives me the strenght to wait even more. 

So, for all of you. while you are waiting, just remember that God can help you continue in patience. 

Hebrews 6:15 : "And so after waiting patiently, Abraham received what was promised."

Please comment below on something hard to wait for!


  1. My Hard-To-Wait-For is the same as yours. I'm always afraid by the time he gets to me, he'll be tarnished-prince-not-so-charming. I need to trust God for His timing though and not my own. Because my timing would probably be jumping the gun a bit. I'm afraid I don't do too well waiting anytime Lord would be good...really anytime *sooner rather than later*...:)

    1. Yes, same here..we just need to keep trusting God for the perfect timing.

  2. The waiting process itself is the hardest, not necessarily the thing. Your Knight (in shining armor) is coming, just keep the faith and stay the course.


  3. I seriously love this!! I totally agree it is all worth waiting for!! I know my prince is out their somewhere!! Right now it's a journey with me and God!! And it's beautiful!! I just know He's preparing me!! :)
