Everyone's waiting for something from God: a job, a spouse, a baby, a cure. And the period in between His answers can feel like a wasteland where dreams and faith go to die. How can the Bible help us navigate our journey through that painful, lonely territory, and come out on the other side with our faith, our joy, and our relationships intact? Author Elizabeth Laing Thompson invites readers to walk alongside people of the Bible who had to wait on God, like David, Joseph, Miriam, and Naomi. Their stories will equip us to live our own stories. particularly our problematic waiting times, with faith, patience, perspective, and a healthy dose of humor. 5.1875" x 8".
