About the Book
A job, a true love, a baby, a cure. . .
We’re all waiting for something from God.
And the place between His answers can feel like a wasteland where dreams—and faith—go to die.
When we’re waiting, we wonder, “Why?”, “Why me?”, and “How long?”

But the truth? . . .
When God says, “Wait,” He doesn’t tell us for how long.
When God says, “Wait,” we face one of life’s greatest tests.
When God says, “Wait,” we have decisions to make.
When God says, “Wait,” we can control only two things: how we wait, and who we become along the way.

Author Elizabeth Laing Thompson invites you to walk alongside people of the Bible who had to wait on God. . .imperfect heroes like David, Miriam, Naomi, Sarah, Joseph, and others. Their stories will provide a roadmap for your own story, helping you navigate the painful, lonely territory of waiting, coming out on the other side with your faith, relationships, and sense of humor intact. They might even help you learn to enjoy the ride.

This book is about the journey of waiting, the space between answers, and the people we become while we live there.

My Perspective

Waiting is something that we all struggle with. From waiting in line at the grocery store, to waiting on God to move in our lives. I am constantly telling myself to have patience, but how long will I need to wait and why is it so difficult? When God Says Wait provided me a good opportunity to step back and really focus on what waiting is all about.

Each chapter provided a glimpse into the life of someone in the Bible who had to wait. I liked how the author put the story in her own words rather than just typing in the verses direct from the Bible. It made it easier for me to connect with these people. My favorite section however was the Waiting Room Reading at the end of each chapter. It provided the opportunity for self assessment and further study. The chance to step back, look into God’s Word and allow Him to speak to your heart.

I think this a great tool for anyone to use, especially those of us who want everything now! I hope it speaks toy our heart and gives you comfort in waiting. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
