Learning to Wait on God: Your Stories

Learning to Wait on God | MercyIsNew.com

Learning to wait on the Lord is not only difficult, but with the waiting can come pain, heartache, hopelessness and worry when we begin to focus on something other than Jesus.

But, when we turn our eyes upon Jesus, the things of earth grow strangely dim. And that is why we must learn to wait on the Lord…not for our circumstances to change…not for our happily ever after…but for Jesus. Waiting on Him alone.

I’m so honored and excited to be sharing stories from many of my friends as they have learned and grown while waiting on the Lord. I will link each of their stories on this page.

The testimonies of these ladies point straight to Jesus. Not all of their stories have happy endings, yet you will hear them testifying to the goodness of God. That is what the gospel is all about, friends. Jesus came, knowing we would have troubles in this world, to bring us peace in the midst of the storm. Sometimes our biggest life lessons are those of just finding Jesus in the mess. He is there, dear ones!

You do not want to miss the encouragement these ladies are sharing in this series, I pray you are encouraged and filled with hope! We will read stories of waiting on the Lord through infertility, adoption, financial struggles, depression, marriage struggles, grief, and more. Come back each Friday as we all take in the stories of these women and learn for ourselves to truly wait on God alone.
