Review: Still Waiting by:Ann Swindell

 Still Waiting: Hope for When God Doesn't Give You What You Want
About the Book:
What if God wants you to wait?
Most of us don’t willingly choose to wait. We pick the shortest lines at the grocery store and avoid construction routes whenever possible. These are relatively short holdups, but they point to the deeper truth of what we try to evade on the larger scale of our lives: the anguish and heartache we experience during extended times of waiting when something we have hoped for gets delayed. Because waiting is painful and hard, too often we try to rush through it, seeking to jump ahead to the hoped-for resolution, opportunity, or healing. It’s easy to overlook that waiting is an inevitable part of our walk with God.

My Review:
 Waiting for God and for God's timing is so incredibly hard. I never would of thought that until I actually had to do it, along with my family. We received a calling from the Lord and things didn't go as planned so now we wait. It has been 3 years and we are still waiting. The author Ann Swindell had to go through much of the same process only her victory took a lot longer than achieve and it was for a physical ailment. But she shows strong faith and soldiers on in spite of it.

 Waiting in faith is hard, hard stuff that God intends for only His strongest. It is some hard stuff. And at times you can get very angry with Him. But in His perfect grace and wisdom He allows you that. Our God loves us more than we will ever know and He walks besides us in these struggles to help us grow. A great read about a struggling faith made stronger through Him.
