This is a guest post from a good friend of mine, Stan Ward. I have known Stan for 18 years. He is one of those odd mixes of people; very deep, yet down to earth. He makes some good points about following in this post.
“Hurry up and wait.” So much of life seems like that. The Christian faith-walk often seems that way, too. There are seasons when we believe God has given us definite work and opportunities, and then there are the in-between seasons. These seasons feel directionless. Rather than moving forward with life, we feel stuck. So what is a good Christ-follower to do when he lacks specific directions from the Lord?
