Description: Find help and hope for times when it's hard to wait on God
Do you ever feel like God is taking too long to answer your prayers? Have you ever taken matters into your own hands, only to discover that you’ve made the situation worse?
Waiting on God challenges our faith when the bills are stacking up, our families are falling apart, or our dreams feel like they won't come true. We know that God hears our prayers, but it’s hard when the clock is ticking yet He hasn’t shown us the answer.
In this four-week Bible study, Barb Roose invites us to explore the stories of women in the Bible who had to wait on God— women such as Hannah, Ruth, Tamar, and the unnamed woman who suffered for over a decade with a painful medical condition. If you’ve felt anxious, angry, discouraged or depressed because God isn’t giving you what you want, their stories will breathe fresh hope and practical next steps in your life. As a reforming control lover, Barb mixes in her personal stories of learning how to wait for God during long seasons of unanswered prayers, family difficulties, and challenging times in ministry. Together we will discover that there is goodness and blessing to be found in times of waiting, including a closer relationship with God than we’ve ever dared to dream.
Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook with Leader Helps.
I’m Waiting, God Video Session Descriptions
Week 1
In this video segment, Barb explores the story of Hannah to help us see that unanswered prayer can actually be an invitation to discover that God’s love is more powerful than t breakthrough, renew, or rescue we want.
Week 2
This week Barb compares the responses of Ruth and Naomi to contrast the bitter road and the better road, encouraging us to have faith that God can restore and bring blessing in the place of tears and pain.
Week 3
In this video segment Barb shares highlights from the story of the unnamed bleeding woman to show us that weakness is a pathway to Jesus, and that Jesus is enough when we’re weary of waiting. In addition to reminding us that it’s not how much faith we have but where we direct our faith, she offers practical steps for handling the weariness of waiting.
Week 4
In this final week Barb leads us through Martha’s story to encourage us that for every "no" that we face, we have the hope of a better future. She reminds us that God always has a better blessing waiting for us if we’re willing to let go of what we’re asking for and choose to receive what God wants to give us.
