Waiting for it to be over, or waiting on God?

I did my best to turn away from uncertainties about how I would do my job and to ask humbly, “Father-Mother, how can I serve You best?”

There are many experiences in life that seem to require hunkering down and waiting something out. It might be a season that we don’t like or a phase in a child’s behavior, or more globally and apparently more threateningly, a pandemic or political turmoil. Yet, one of Jesus’ healings demonstrates beautifully a vastly more hopeful kind of waiting. 

The Bible tells of a pool called Bethesda surrounded by porches where there was “a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had” (John 5:3, 4).
