Overview

Waiting . . .

In a dead-end career for a breakthrough . . .

In an unhappy marriage for relief or escape . . .

In a chronic illness for a ray of hope . . .

In solitude for the loneliness to subside . . .

In turmoil for peace to come . . .

Sometimes we find our lives placed on hold. Deep questions begin to surface. How long must I wait? Is there any meaning to all this waiting? Can I trust God?

We can't help but wonder what is happening--and why?

In Waiting, Ben Patterson uncovers two cardinal virtues required for successful waiting--humility and hope. You will learn how humility teaches us we exist for God's sake, not for our own; and you will learn how hope assures us that there is something worth waiting for.
