Sometimes the uncomfortable in-between of waiting is God's choice for us.

My family would tell you that I’m not a big fan of waiting. I don't like to wait in a doctor's office, or in traffic jams, or in a grocery store line. Maybe you’re like that. You prefer to be on the move. You’d rather be in motion, going somewhere, than be asked to wait. Despite these preferences, there's an insight on waiting that we will find in Scripture and throughout our life experiences. Here it is: “waiting” is sometimes God’s choice for me.

The Lord has empowered us all to be witnesses. Remember Jesus' promise in Acts 1:8—“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses…” The Holy Spirit is our power source. We all have what it takes to fulfill the mission. So, how do we get started?
