The Grove Prompt: Wait

In Invitations From God by Adele Ahlberg Calhoun she asks, “Describe the feelings you experience when you have to wait. What do these feelings reveal about the way you think life should work?”

This week we are going to do just that . . . Maybe God will encourage you in ways you have grown when it comes to waiting. Maybe God will reveal areas He is ready for you to look at more closely during the retreat (Have you signed up? It is easy, just click the picture below).

Adele Calhoun shared a few roadblocks when it comes to waiting. Notice if you bump into (crash through?) any this week:

  • An inability to lay down my agenda and go with what is happening.
  • An addiction to hurry.
  • Cramming too many things into the time available.
  • Unrealistic deadlines.
  • The inability to take the long view.
  • The inability to see the present as more than a crack between the past and the future.

Join the discussion this week in the comments, on Instagram using #VelvetAshesWait, and then at The Grove beginning Thursday 6pm EST. Bring your blog posts to link up.
