    Yes, I have.
    I never wanted anyone to feel the way I felt waiting for God’s time; it can be tiring, tedious, and nerve-wracking. What feels like the end of physical patience often becomes an emotional bumpy road that full of fear, worry, and despair. You ask yourself over and over again “What am I doing wrong?” or “Why is this happening?” And then you start looking back on your life trying to find a reason.
    However, when He answered my prayer, all I said was I can never think of a better time than this. 🙂

    While society makes every attempt to make our life easier and faster, God works on a very different timetable. In his mind, nothing is wrong with waiting. In fact, waiting can actually be a positive good that he often uses to make us more like his son.

  3. Thank you for sharing your heart with us. I was blessed by your testimony. God recently spoke Habakkuk 2:3 to me, He may be slow in response but perfect in timing. =)

    I love your comments about waiting on the Lord. In May 2017, my fifteen year old son was diagnosed with a super-ultra rare liver cancer (fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma). My world fell apart. My family’s world fell apart. We are from North Texas and no one had ever treated that type of cancer before. We were not given good odd that Joshua would recover. We prayed that a way would be opened that he could be treated and his life would be spared. I felt so helpless. We finally found a group of doctors and started treatment. After three months, the scans showed no shrinkage! More waiting, more praying. The doctor was hopeful about trying another type of medication. Luckily it worked. After three months, my son was able to qualify for surgery. On December of 2017 he had 1,767 tumors removed from his abdominal area including 30% of his liver, his spleen, appendix, gallbladder, 1/2 of his rt. diaphragm, and a testicle. It was an 18 hour surgery. We were not sure how or if he would recover. Joshua was able to go home after three weeks in the hospital. He went on to have thirteen rounds of chemo. On April 13, 2018, he went into remission. The doctors couldn’t find any trace of the tumors at all!!! It has been a long journey. My son is a walking miracle. God is good. He loves us and listens to our prayers. The way will be laid before us if we wait on him.

      Praise the Lord! What an unbelievable miracle!! Thank you so much for sharing and encouraging my heart today. God is good even in the midst of trials and tribulations. I’m so happy you get more time with your son and I’ll pray that the cancer never returns! <3

    2. Thank you so much for this amazing testimony. It is encouraging to hear about how other people have walked through intense trials and how God has come through. He never fails. Praise God for your son’s healing! I am waiting on my mom’s salvation. It has been a period of much pain for me and persistent prayer. Also learning to enjoy life and all my blessings in the waiting. Please pray for her salvation. Amen.

  5. Hi, I’m Rinny. Sometimes I ask why is my faith, I’m grateful to God. I’m pregnant now and my husband is always requesting for a baby boy, I don’t know what to do and i don’t know what God has for us, I just want to give him what he want, so I’m believing God to grant his wish. Am so scared and i don’t want to check my baby’s gender for now..

  8. Hi Angela
    Thanks for your encouraging post – you are so patient and it is so hard just waiting. I really like your picture quote , I’m going to look up her book … Right now, I’m trying to learn for myself – God may be slow, but he’s never late .

    Some days it helps…

    God bless you

      Thank you so much, Sue! You are right…He is never late. He knows what He is doing!

  9. Hello all….pls pray that my house gets sold soon ..please…God bless u all 🙂

    Thank God.. me too in the waiting period now.. I am married for 6.5 years now.. I have had two miscarriages in the past years and still waiting for God’s work to work in me and grant us children.recently I have quit my job as well.. hoping in the presence of God for his work to be done my life.

  11. I been married for a year now and have been trying to get pregnant, I’m still not pregnant but I do know it’s all about Gods timing. Some days I get discouraged but do know that he will bless my husband and I in his timing. In edition to wanting and waiting to get pregnant, I’ve been without a permanent job for the last two years. I’ve been temping and I still believe God has the perfect position just for me but in his timing. We must wait and trust in the Lord. Faith is believing even when you can not see the way.

    1. Angela Thayer says:

      I’m so sorry to hear this. Waiting is so hard. Praying you will be blessed while you wait! Thank you for commenting.

  12. Oh, yes, the waiting… *sigh* I waited and prayed, and waited some more to find a marriage partner in hopes to raise a family. When I was 46, I was done waiting for “Mr. sort-a-right”. So I completed a Foster Parenting class, and then waited some more… 2 months later I received the most precious gift of my life, a Baby Girl. While it is certainly not what I wanted or expected from life, I thank the Lord everyday for this gift and celebrate love & joy that I now experience !!

  13. I believe that God is good, I believe that His timing is perfect, but I am right now in that period of waiting. My husband and I got married in October 2012, and have been searching for good employment ever since. I have been working the same dead-end-poorly-paying-terrible-hours job for the past ten months, and my husband’s job of three months fizzled up and died. We are living in his parents’ house, along with my brother in law and sister in law. It’s been stressful and heartbreaking. We just want our own place and our own life! We’re trying to have faith that God has a place for us elsewhere, that He has a great job lined up for my husband, and even that this period of our life together is meant for growth and learning, but it’s hard to see that when you’re in the dark. Thanks for reminding me to have faith!

      I’m so sorry to hear this. My heart break for you!! I will be praying for you–for strength, patience, wisdom, and strong faith in the Lord. God bless you!!

  14. LOVE this post. Congrats to you guys! And God’s timing is always so much better than ours! So hard to be patient but there are so many lessons he is teaching us along the way. So happy for you guys!

      Thanks, Linds! Yes, His timing is always better than ours!! So true. Thanks for your comment.

    I waited six years for a child. Boy did I learn the meaning of patience! It also took us two years to sell our house, then ten months to find a job at our new location. I feel your pain, but everything was worth the wait. God is good 🙂

      Thank you for sharing, Natalie! Wow, you are so patient…God bless you!! You are so right–God is good!
