Waiting for Wonder {Book Review}

waiting-for-wonderIt’s easy to believe God when a promise is new. It’s hard when the years pass and nothing changes. It’s even harder when desperation strikes, your plans backfire, and still God does not fill the emptiness. But what if, in this waiting, God is calling us to more?

Waiting for Wonder is a journey into the heart of God where you will wrestle with personal questions, think deeply about God’s true character, and learn to appreciate His divine work as you discover your own path to the promised land. Recapture your hope, restore your soul, and renew your vision of a wondrous Savior when you learn to live on God’s time.

Waiting for Wonder is an in-depth look at the life of Sarah.  I have seen many writers talk about Sarah recently.  This brought the familiar story into a different light.  Marlo introduces us with the way the bible defines Sarah by her greatest point of shame.  That is how God introduces her.  Sarah is ashamed because she is barren.  Yet God takes that place of our greatest shame and uses that exact place to transform us into who we are called to be.

This book will minister to everyone who finds themselves in a season of waiting.  As you read God whispers to your soul on those places where you long to see change.  You can feel God gently whisper to your situation and you feel hope begin to stir anew.  We often hate our waiting times but it is in the waiting that God begins to shape us.  It is hard and messy and often terribly inconvenient but we can learn not to lose hope as we find inspiration from Sarah.
