H. Hope Deferred…Waiting on the Lord – Melanie Pruett
We live in a face-paced, instant gratification, click of a button culture. We don’t want to wait. We don’t like to wait. But sometimes God calls us to wait…to wait for a cure, a job, a spouse, grief to pass, happiness to come…the list goes on. And although there are many seasons and reasons for waiting on the Lord, the painful road of infertility can be especially devastating for the Christian wife. By sharing my personal journey through infertility, it is my prayer that the scriptures and Biblical truths we look at will be helpful to anyone who is waiting on the Lord. Proverbs 13:12 “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.”
