Waiting Well

Posted by | Pastors' Wives, Spiritual Walk | No Comments

Today one of our Confidante Team members, Christy Kirtlan is sharing on a subject that none of us like, “waiting.” Waiting….drumming fingers on a table….pacing back and forth…checking and rechecking the time….humming….sighing…..scrolling through your phone…..

Attention spans no longer span. We want it now….

By Anita Wallace Good Morning Sweet Friends. Today’s word of encouragement is “Advance”! “With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.”  (2 Samuel 22:30) My husband has preached and pastored for more than twenty years. In addition, he has planned a number of men’s weekend events. I used to laugh because he calls them an “advance”. He says, “If you women want to ‘retreat’, then go ahead. But warriors ADVANCE.” When…
