Win Tumbleweed Weddings: Is Waiting a God Thing?

Donna Reimel Robinson is a member of JOY Writers, a local critique group, as well as ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers). As a pastor’s wife, she plays the piano for their church
and teaches a Jr. High Sunday School class. In her spare time, Donna enjoys sewing and working jigsaw puzzles. She and her husband have four grown children and ten grandchildren (with another on the way!) They live in Denver, Colorado. Visit Donna’s website at DonnaRobinsonBooks.com.


God’s Ways
One of the many ways God works is to make His children wait. Human beings tend to be impatient, but God is very patient. A couple years or more is nothing to the Lord.
In the Bible, Abraham had to wait twenty-five years before his promised son was born. The Psalmist David was anointed as the future king of Israel, and yet he had to wait, hiding from King Saul, before he could sit on the throne. An old Israelite named Simeon waited all his life for the Messiah to be born.
I first felt the tug to write novels back in 1986, but my first book was not published until 2009. That was a long time to wait! (You can read about my writing journey at my website. Here’s the link: http://www.donnarobinsonbooks.com/about-donna/)
But waiting was good for me. The Lord is more interested in people’s character than their success. Waiting all those years gave me time to hone the craft of writing, as well as taking care of my husband and children. It also made me learn to trust God, knowing His plan for me was best.
Are you going through something right now, and you wish the Lord would hurry up? Don’t be discouraged. God has a plan for you.
Psalm 27:14 says, “Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord.” (KJV)
