The Purpose of Waiting

“For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.” Habakkuk 2:3. Waiting is not always easy. God’s timing is not always ours. “Any time now, Lord,” could be the cry of your heart, but consider if a fetus cries, ‘I’m tired of the darkness’; or if a caterpillar cries, ‘I’m tired of this cocoon’ and with impatience get out of the safety of┬átheir development.

The Gift of Friendship

“A man who has friends must show himself friendly, but there is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.” Prov. 18:24. Loneliness is everywhere. The greatest loneliness can be experienced in a crowd. Loneliness is not just being alone, but a feeling of disconnection, alienation, or separation. We all need friends.
