The Crucible Called Waiting

Passage: Job 14:14, Psalm 27:13-14, Isaiah 8:17, Habakkuk 2:3, Romans 8:25, Galatians 5:5
Service Type:

Three long days. 72 hours. Troubled sleep. Lots of pacing and avoiding eye contact with the others. A few forced attempts at prayer each day. Mounting stress. Each evening, watching the sun fade in the west brought renewed questioning, thinly disguising nagging doubts. Yes, Jesus had risen from the dead. Of that, all were convinced. But his continued talk of going away, which they had always hoped was meant to convey some hidden truth like so many of his parables, had always left them feeling uneasy, scared even. And now, it had happened and here they were, secreted away in a room in Jerusalem – waiting.
