While You Wait For Your Breakthrough

Seasons of waiting are not always fun and exciting times…

waiting for the ‘one’ to marry,
waiting for a new job,
waiting for your first child,
waiting for God’s leading and direction,
waiting for financial breakthrough,
waiting for help (especially when it appears none is in sight)
waiting for the phone call that promises to change your life
waiting for a new beginning…

Waiting doesn’t always come natural to us – we’d rather be in a hurry. Can you relate? I do!

Waiting is a perfect opportunity for service

I’ve often found myself failing to linger, failing to slow down, failing to wait. But each day, I’m learning that waiting is not a bad thing after all, but an opportunity.

Your waiting season is not the time to shut down emotionally, spiritually or physically. While you wait, you must be active and stay involved; involved in the lives of others.

Your waiting season is a perfect opportunity to live the life that matter. In my experience, this is when..

I pour myself into others to serve their God-intended purpose most.
 

We experience breakthrough when we remove focus from ourselves and serve others while we waittweet this.

Your 7-day challenge

Are you wondering what to do during your season of waiting? Here’s my call to you:

While you wait...

Let’s embark on a 7-day challenge together to live intentionally by doing something for others while waiting for our own needs to be met. You decide what you will do or give away.

The opportunities to live intentionally while waiting on God are endless; learn a new skill, read a new book, serve in your local church, call or visit the brother or sister you haven’t seen for 3 weeks, give something away TODAY and of course, pray (for others who are waiting like you are).

Are you with me? Let’s do it together. Let’s serve others while we wait.

Are you waiting on God for something? What can you do in the next 7 days to serve others? Leave a comment.
