Benefits of this Time of Waiting in My Life

We are studying the book "Before You Meet Prince Charming" by Sarah Mally. This was one of the assignments: To come up with 10 benefits of this time of "waiting". Here is my list. I may add to it later on... these are just some things that I thought of right away. :)

  1. It is helping me to grow closer to God
  2. It is building my patience
  3. It is a great time to prepare for the future
  4. I have more opportunities for ministry
  5. It is strengthening my faith
  6. It is building character
  7. It is a great opportunity to work on developing great habits and attitudes
  8. It is a time to learn many useful skills
  9. I have been able to minister to other girls in many different ways
  10. I have been able to be an example for other young ladies who are in a similar time

Psalm 27:14

Wait on the Lord: Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: Wait, I say, on the Lord


  1. I enjoyed reading this Carissa! Very nice. :)

  2. I am glad you enjoyed it. :) It is a good reminder for me to focus on what is good about where I am in my life right now... applying my last post, I guess. :P

    Thanks for commenting!

    God bless,

  3. Very well put Carissa. Is this in combat to Trey Edwards' blog by any chance? :)

  4. Thanks. Um, no, I don't think so. I did read his post, but I wasn't trying to combat anything. Nor did I realize that I was combating anything. :)

  5. I just wanted to comment about the verse that you included on this post. I found it interesting that you chose that one. Actually, God used that verse to speak to me in a very special way a few years ago-not about this topic though. Since then this verse has meant a lot to me. It does apply very well to this area as well, and it's definitely something that I need to be reminded of often! Thanks for sharing the list as well.

  6. That is neat that this is a special verse to you as well! I really like it too.

    Maybe you could make a list for yourself... It is helpful. You are welcome for posting it. :)
