All of our Christian lives we prepare ourselves to hear God say, “Go,” but nothing prepares us for His calling to stop.
You feel God’s nudging that change is coming. You know you’re on the edge of an adventure with God. Your spirit is excited about what lies ahead. Then, you hear it—His call, His promise. You prepare to go, excited about the next step in your spiritual journey and suddenly—everything stops and the waiting begins.
Author Debby Akerman and her family had received a promise from God for a new adventure with Him to move south. Willing to leave family, friends, and ministry behind, she was shocked when God chose to put their move on hold. She wasn’t sure how to deal with waiting. In her search for understanding, she learned to be still and view the wait from God’s perspective through biblical truth. Encouraging patience in God’s perfect timing, each chapter contains applications for the reader to apply biblical truths to their particular wait for God.
