Waiting: Finding Hope When God Seems Silent by Ben Patterson

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.
