From The Office


Being in a season of waiting is something we all spend time in. From the womb, until we’re old enough to drive or go to the pub, for exam results, election results, medical results, for the announcement of redundencies to the results of a pregnency test or the 12 week scan. Even waiting at a red light or FOR THE CAR ON THE GREEN TO MOVE!!! We spend time waiting. You would think it would get easier, you would think.

The disciples, after the ascension of Jesus, waited as He had told them “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.” (Acts 1:4) 50 days after the Passover Festival, the crucifixion of Jesus, the Spirit of God comes in power into the lives of the disciples and all the Church and sets His presence there. It must have been hard for them too in all the waiting. But the waiting paid off, the waiting, like labour pains (so I have been led to believe) is incomparable to the joy and blessing when the Holy Spirit made His presence felt on the day of Pentecost.

We are in a period of waiting. In many ways. And in our waiting, how is God sustaining us? What are we looking forward to? Are we feeling anxious and needing to fill the awkward silence with something? Have we learnt the practice of patience? Of silence? Or stillness?

Psalm 40 says, “I waited patiently for the LORD; who inclined to me and heard my cry.” Now is not a time of anxiety or business, now is the beautiful space of waiting. How is your waiting?
