God’s Waiting Room – Hope in the Midst of Uncertainty
Some Things Are Worth The Wait.
Most of us like to be making progress. To be growing spiritually, getting in shape physically, doing well at work or developing closer friendships. To be moving forward.
But what happens when the tables turn and life begins to derail? When stress mounts and we are helplessly overcome by difficulty?
Rick Yohn suggests that we have entered a place called God’s Waiting Room. A place where we must simply wait on God to pick up the pieces, and open the next chapter of our lives.
The process of waiting is seldom pleasant. It often brings grief, numbness, a sense of loss, and nagging anxiety. And always a yearning to move on.
Sometimes, however, we make more progress waiting than in years of “moving forward.” God uses these times to craft us into the Image of Christ, to correct harmful trends, or even to let us rest and regroup for what lies ahead.
God’s Waiting Room contains practical suggestions for making such an experience productive, rather than damaging. Using examples from scripture and from his own life, Rick Yohn shows how to approach difficult times with a sense of righteous anticipation. And above all, he leaves you with the startling realization that some things are worth the wait.
Rick Yohn Is the senior pastor of the Evangelical Free Church of Orange, California. He has written several other books, including his most recent, Living Securely in an Unstable World (Multnomah).
