As I was telling the story of how David and I met, I was reminded of the days leading up to that time. The days that multiplied into years where I wanted to be married - yet, was in a time of waiting.
Even though I wasn't always patiently waiting, those days hold a sweetness in my memory. A sweetness I want to remember, to cherish - and to pass on to my daughters.
One of the sweetest things about these days in waiting was the time I was able to spend with God. I had time with Him in the morning before work, on my lunch break and in the evenings. I practiced the verses I was memorizing in the car, listened to uplifting music and had Scriptures posted at my desk and in my home.
I still enjoy spending time with God of course, but during this season - not as much time is available for enjoying with Him.
I enjoyed the Navigators Topical Memory System - I'm horribly out of practice now ... but what a treasure to have those words of God in my heart.
I participated in Beth Moore and Navigators Bible Studies (like this one). And, I read God's Word and spent time really thinking about how it applied to my life.
Waiting gracefully by spending time getting close to God! Do you have a sweet memory of spending time with God during your time of waiting? Or, if you are waiting now - how are you getting closer to God?
