Blog Tour : Waiting for Wonder

This book really changed my life. I am a worrier, and I am extremely impatient. I have always struggled to wait for God's timing. Isn't this something we all struggle with from time to time? This couldn't be a more timely book for me. As a young college student I have a million things I am waiting to hear about, do, accomplish, you name it. Sometimes those plans backfire, and I feel as if  God has let me down. The truth is that he hasn't. He never lets us down. 

This book is a unique and fascinating look at our journey to become closer to God. The author guides us to help reveal the wonder that is our walk with Jesus. Using biblical characters as guides. 

This book is so telling. I enjoyed the lessons that were pointed out from the Bible. Using the story of Sarah we remember that everyone has to go through some pretty rough patches at some point in their life. This is so that we can eventual reach a place of destiny that God himself wants. 

I really need to hear all the words the author had to say. In summary, her message is that we have to wait for God's plans to come to pass. We can wish, hope, and pray for quicker resolutions but God will bring solutions and answers in his own time.

This is an awesome read for anyone struggling with waiting on God. Which at some point I believe, is all of us.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Life House Publicity for a blog tour. All opinions are my own
