But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)
“This time, don’t wait.”
That was not what I anticipated hearing from God the day I curled up in my place of prayer, broken but confident He would say just what I expected Him to. In the midst of my crying, screaming, wailing…my prayer time came to a screeching halt when I heard those four words echoing in my soul, “This time, don’t wait”.
Three years had passed after my now former husband had returned home following a two year separation. After faithfully waiting, praying and believing he would come back home, God did exactly what I asked. About two years into reconciliation, I wrote and published my very first book titled Worth the Wait. As a matter of fact it was this very day eight years ago that I had my book signing debut…07-07-07. Oh my, seven is God’s perfect number, the number of completion. For me, this was like God saying, “I am sealing the deal!”
What an accomplishment. I was so proud. It was not just because of this book that I just knew would make it to the New York Times Best Seller’s List. I was more so proud of my ability to stand and trust God through one of the most difficult and traumatic times of my life.
Now everything about this time in my life was perfect…UNTIL…
