Lady in Waiting 222 (LIW) was a concept, idea, movement of some sort birthed out of the many conversations I have had with friends over the years asking questions not limited to: “Why aren’t we married yet?”, “When are we getting married?”, “Will we ever be married?” and “Has God forgotten about us?” About 3 years ago, I got tired of hearing this and talking about the same conversations over and over again. Instead, God began to challenge me and asked me “What are you really waiting for to get started on what I called you to do?” and “What are you doing now while you wait?”.
Here you will encounter journeys about women who are waiting-not just to be married, but waiting to start a business, go back to school, have children, move, or do what God has called them to do right NOW. We want to share our struggles as well as the joys while waiting. You will also hear from those who have waited on something and the rewards and struggles, even after the wait. We also want to provide you with tips, tools and resources to assist you in becoming God’s best NOW and help you to learn to embrace and enjoy the journey while you wait-for WHATEVER you are waiting for in life.
Whether you’re single, married, divorced, separated, in limbo, or widowed, LIW is here to draw women closer to a loving relationship with Christ-the ultimate Bridegroom. We are here to encourage, empower, challenge and equip women to become their BEST self in this season. You are called to be who He created you to be, to do the things He has called you to do and live the life He destined for you to live-RIGHT NOW.
Come and sit down, kick off your heels (or flip flops) and get comfortable. Grab your favorite beverage or snack, your journal/pad, some tissues (yes, that too!) and something to write with and let’s see what the Bridegroom has for us NOW!
No longer will we wait for the other shoe to drop, for the right man/husband/marriage to come along, for the career/opportunity to be presented or for life to ‘happen’ to us. NOW is the time to become God’s best in every area of our life. While we acknowledge our longings and desires, we believe that there is only One who can meet them fully and completely. We declare that we will encourage and be encouraged, empower and be empowered, challenge and be challenged, and equip and be equipped for ourselves and other sisters around the world to pursue what God has for us and wants us to do RIGHT NOW. We declare that while we wait we will take full advantage of the opportunity to become God’s best right NOW. ~Selah
