Book Description: For times when the world seems to be on pause, Christian leader, mentor, and author Krystal Ribble pairs biblical stories with the current familiar waiting periods of our lives, showing how we can be sure that God is with us while we wait.

Now more than ever, “Sit and Wait” seems to be on everyone’s agenda. Weaving stories of waiting from familiar Bible characters, Love Me in the Waiting helps readers to consider that the waiting times in life are always full of purpose, even if they aren’t seen or felt. In Love Me in the Waiting readers will be encouraged as they wait, learning how they can benefit from the timeless wisdom of those who waited before us. In doing so, they can draw strength and comfort from these collected stories and know they’re not alone in the waiting seasons.

A companion to the waiting you’re sitting through right now or have experienced in the past, Love Me in the Waiting takes readers through ten different biblical passages, focused on:

Waiting for the Storm to Pass
Waiting for New Life
Waiting for Love
Waiting for Reconciliation
Waiting in the Wilderness
Waiting for the Future
Waiting for your Troubles to Pass
Waiting for Deliverance
Waiting on the World to Change
Waiting for the Resurrection, Here and Now

These passages—including the stories of Noah, Sarah, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Job, Daniel, Habakkuk, and Lazarus—help anyone yearning for meaning to understand their seasons of waiting and answer questions like:

Why is the Lord taking so long to give me the ending He’s promised?
What is He doing or teaching me while I’m waiting?
How do I wait on a promise that I can’t see?
How can I support my loved one who is in a season of waiting?

When your patience has worn thin or you’re beginning to doubt God will be around for you, take heart from the pages of scripture. This book shows that modern experiences of waiting are similar in many ways to those who have come before, and that we have more in common with our spiritual ancestors than we realize. God will never waste a minute of your waiting, and Love Me in the Waiting provides a reminder of that truth for us all.
