Over the last few days, God has given us the extreme privilege of praying over several people who are learning how to wait on Him during their time of separation. We consider their journeys as treading on very holy ground for we know they’re learning what it means to possess a waiting soul.
A waiting soul is different than a waiting heart. It’s harder. It’s deeper. It takes longer to cultivate. A waiting soul realizes that every earthly option has been exhausted, yet it does not despair. A waiting soul believes that deliverance can and will only come from God Himself. A waiting soul knows that steadfast hope comes in resting facedown on the promises of God…and in staying there.
Our soul waits for the LORD; He is our help and our shield. For our heart rejoices in Him, Because we trust in His holy name. Let Your lovingkindness, O LORD, be upon us, According as we have hoped in You. Psalm 33:20-22 NASB

Thank you for sharing this. My husband and I were inspired by your story and decided after 5 years of divorce to remarry. One year and one month later, he looked at me and kicked me out of our home. I have no real idea of why and he can’t tell me. I have an autistic son from a previous marriage and he is an adult and I think that had something to do with it. I have felt a strong desire to stay away no matter how many times he has asked me to return and I truly believe, as the peace has gone deeper, that this is the point I am at. I have become a waiting soul. I used to refer to myself in limbo, because with autism you have no idea what is going on, but I like using the term a waiting soul. Thank you God for revealing this to these wonderful examples of success in marriage. I am praying for you. Great success in your ministry. God Bless.
We take to heart what you have shared. God is able!
