Weekend Link (yep, just one) 4/5/13

Not going to lie. . . this week has been a hard one. Hard on many levels. I won't bore you with the ins and the outs and the whys. Maybe that will be a topic for another day. But in the midst of this emotionally draining, overwhelming week, I read a post that helped give me back some perspective.

So I wanted to share it with you.

In case you've had a rough week too, and need a little shifting of your mindset.

Hurry up and wait - Living Proof Ministries Blog

Here's a little sneak peak. . .

"But most times, our waiting is much longer than any of us like to think or wait, but if we only knew what He had in store for us, we know the waiting would be worth it. 

My sweet coworker KMac said it best, “We wouldn’t appreciate ANYTHING without a little delay and anticipation.” And all the people said amen.

That’s why in the waiting we wait with hope.

We wait with expectancy.
We wait in patience.
We wait in prayer.
We wait in strength.
Most times, the waiting really isn’t about the waiting, it’s about becoming."
If you have a few seconds, I encourage you to click on over and read. It's a good one!
It's Friday. . . Enjoy your weekend, friends!


  1. That sounds like something I definitely need to read!! Sorry you've had such a rough week, friend. Praying things get better for you.

  2. sorry this week was a long and draining one! i have never been a fan of waiting. but usually, in looking back after the waiting has passed, i can always see how God was weaving my story together the entire time. and that brings me peace and hope to get through the next waiting season.

  3. I cannot imagine anything I needed to hear more than this today. Thank you! I hope things start to make more sense for you soon. They always do, but you're right ... the waiting is SO hard!!

  4. Oh Brittnie I hope things will be looking up for you soon. My family has gone through trials the last year and a half with my husbands job and then him starting his own business and dealing with health insurance for my arthritis (all very unexciting things to blog about) so I know exactly what you're talking about.

    But this article speaks the truth in that without the bad we would never relish in the good. Thinking of you today.

  5. Oh my word! What a beautiful, beautiful post you shared. Thank you! So much truth and goodness and encouragement.

    ((Hugs)) Hope things get better for you soon. :)

  6. Great read... thanks for sharing. Love and prayers, my sweet friend!

  7. Hope everything is okay sweet friend! Sending big hugs xo
