Waiting on God – Episode 2

Waiting on God Episode 2

The Christian Milspouse Podcast Episode 2

This week, we’re talking about waiting on God. 

I don’t know about you, but I don’t like waiting. I want to know NOW what’s coming! But God in his mercy keeps us from knowing all that’s to happen in the future, because honestly we could not bear it if we knew ahead of time.

Military life forces us to wait, whether we’re waiting on orders, a return from deployment, or even our household goods or medical paperwork!

Whether big or small circumstances, waiting is a part of life and we as military spouses learn to embrace the certainty of uncertainty. I’ve called it “living in the pause” and I heard a writer once call it “the land between,” those times where you feel adrift while you wait. 

But friend, that is also where God meets us. God says in Isaiah 26:3:

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

Here’s part of the poem from Cardinal John Henry Newman that I mention in this episode:

Lead, kindly light, amid the encircling gloom, 

Lead thou me on!

The night is dark,and I am far from home—Lead thou me on!

Keep thou my feet; I do not ask to see

The distant scene—one step enough for me. 

Some of the Scriptures we discuss this week:

Psalm 27:14: “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.”

Isaiah 40:29-31: “He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint” 

Don’t forget! The completely free, all online PILLAR deployment retreat is happening Nov 4-6. I’ll be there, talking about helping your teens navigate the deployment of a parent. Will I see you there? Click here for more info and to register.

I pray that if you’re waiting on something this week, you’ll feel God’s presence and peace.
