Subtitle: Patience, Contentment, and Hope for the Everyday

Everybody waits. We wait for a spouse, wait for a baby, wait on our children, wait for our parents. We wait for clarity and direction. We wait on a job, a promotion, a new direction. We wait for hope, for healing, and for miracles. We wait on God. And when we misunderstand what waiting is about, we can get confused about what God is up to.

So Just. You. Wait. Everyone takes their turn in the waiting room, and now it's your turn. Waiting is along and painful fact of life, but shortcuts and microwaves aren't the answer. In these pages, Tricia discusses the joy hidden in the discipline of waiting as well as the practices of believing God is for you and working on your behalf, even when the work of his hand is hard to find. Waiting is not wasted time, but rather a chance for you to study and prepare, to learn and practice. Because when your opportunity comes, you don't want to spend more time on the bench. When you wait well, you can say, "Look out, world: I am getting ready to shine. Just you wait."

Reflections in Awakening

Tricia is the most compassionate writer I have ever read. She forges a sincere friendship with the reader, writing as a tender survivor of waiting rather than an expert on it. Somehow, Tricia manages to strike the perfect balance between consolation and hope, nudging us forward without hurrying us along. For those who feel stuck, sidelined, or distracted by the ache of longing, Just. You. Wait. offers the solace and perspective you need. That’s exactly what it gave to me. -- Bekah DiFelice, author of Almost There
