That's why this time, I'm witnessing the great out-pouring, the turn-around, the change in this precious friend's life. And I'm excited--and astounded--and humbled.
The waiting isn't so bad when you know the Master of the universe has it under control and that your prayers are aiding in the turning of a lost soul back to Him. Waiting on the Lord is when we take our hands off the wheel and allow Him to do the work in our situation. We "graft ourselves into the Vine" and fast and pray for fallen branches. Sometimes, we're earnestly seeking to get back to that Vine ourselves. Other times, we're being pruned. But the waiting? It's so good in the end! God never disappoints!
