Welcome to those of you who’ve landed here after reading my Proverbs 31 devotion Wait Training 101. If you haven’t read it, click here to catch up with the rest of us.

Ever feel like this screen shot from my phone sums up your life perfectly?

Yeah. Me too.

Let’s chat about waiting today.

What are you currently waiting on God about? How long has it been? What do you do while you are waiting that helps to settle your heart and mind? What do you think about the concept from the devotion of “waiting on God” like a maid or butler or waiter?

And let’s help one of you along as you wait. That person will win this giveaway:

It includes:

~ A Mission of God brown leatherette Bible in the Holman Christian Standard version

~ A Bible highlighter

~ Three plaid journals (to journal while you wait)

~Some Cinnamon coffee to sip while you wait

~ Some Caribbean Escape hand soap (You know the signs always say all employees–including waiters–must wash hands!)

~A copy of my newest book LET. IT. GO. How to Stop Running the Show & Start Walking in Faith. (It is on how to stop trying to control and start trusting God)

To be entered to win, leave a comment today.

Okay. Let’s chat about today’s topic.

I’m waiting……….:)


  1. WOW! This is just the thing I prayed about today. For God to guide me in letting go and stop trying to control everything. Would be so blessed to win this! If I don’t then I am still runnning out to purchase. I need help in “Letting Go and Letting God!”

  2. I valued this perspective on waiting….I have never read that verse in this way. Too many times the yuck of life happens, you know God answers, provides, is in it, through it and beyond the trial, yet its not always during that i give Him the focus….its usually after its over. The fear sets in the “during” and my focus becomes how I want things to be handled, not how God is already there and pointing myself and others toward Him. Thank you for your message!

  3. Thank you for this blog and for your words of wisdom! I’m so encouraged to know that there are resources, tools, and ultimately a loving Savior to help me learn how to wait. I was so uplifted as well when you mentioned waiting for a pregnancy. That is what I am waiting for right now, and it has been one of the most challenging things to go through, but I don’t want to be weak through this. I want to be strong and my goal is to to be so through this struggle.

  4. My husband and I have been waiting to hear about a job opportunity that would move our family six hours away. This process has not been easy, but I so greatly appreciate the encouragement today. Thank you!!

  5. I ‘m so great at “waiting for” and was stopped short when I saw your post on Facebook and introduced to the concept of “waiting on”. In boarding school I waited for my missionary parents to take me back home with them. As a single woman I have waited for my knight…. I’ve waited for the perfect job, the perfect church, the perfect friend, the perfect…. Love the reframing to waiting on my Lord!!!!!! Thanks for sharing.

  6. My husband & I have been waiting for his healing to be manifested for over 5 years. It has been challenging many times. Even as I type this, he is in the hospital. God increases my faith. I would appreciate everyone’s prayers -,not just for Dave, my husband, but for my mom, who is under hospice care, my dad-whose health is also failing (just got out of the hospital last Monday), my sister – our parents live with her &her family, and for me. While I stayed @the hospital with my dad, I got bronchitis, sinus infection & infection in both ears.
    I’ve always heard when the attack is this heavy, God is about to do something amazing,
    Bring it on, God!

    I’ve been working on this giveaway over several hours, but I’m pretty sure I’ve posted it on FB, Twitter, pinned it, & liked Karen’s page.

    Blessings to all,

  7. I love your writing and am currently involved in the Let It Go online book study. Your devotionals, tweets and book bless me everyday. I’m waiting to hurry up and wait or at least that is the way it seems.

  8. Hi,

    I am a newer Christian and have been reading, printing, and listening to everything I can. I would love to learn more on “waiting”. I stink at that!

    Thanks so much!


  9. I saw you at Feminar this past weekend. You were very encouraging. I’m in a heavy waiting period right now & your words touched my very core. Thank you!
    I signed up for your emails, liked & shared on fb.

  10. Hi Karen. I know how hard it us to wait upon answers from God to our prayers. I pray daily for him to ease my loneliness and heal me in every area of my life. The thing I am being shown is that it is in God’s timing that he heals. I have not had the easiest life at times but I am learning that God never abandoned me and the pain I have experienced will be for good someday. I am going to keep praying fervently and ceaselessly to an awesome God who loves me more than I can ever fathom!

    Thank you,
    Lisa K.

    I pinned you on Pinterest and also shared your link on Facebook.
