31 Days of Writing

Wait-Series Image

Every day, we spend the majority of our time waiting. Waiting for dinner to cook, waiting for the stop light to change, waiting for work to be over, waiting for the moment that we can finally close our eyes and fall asleep.

I’m not in the minority when I say that I loathe waiting. I want projects to be done yesterday, my coffee to be handed to me from the drive through window as soon as I pull up, and my life goals to be accomplished in a month. I want to grow and be closer to God now, without the pain of waiting and being purified.

This month, I have the privilege of participating in The Nester’s 31 Days challenge, in which a community of writers write on a topic of their choice every day in the month of October. Over the next 31 days, we’ll be exploring waiting in a series called “Wait”, where we share the pain, joys, and silliness that waiting entails. I’ll be posting a link to each day’s writing below, so be sure to check back here every day of the month of October.

    “Without the pain of waiting and being purified” – this is exactly where I have been in my relationship with God as well…Your words speak right to my heart. Excited to see what you have for the next 31 days.
