How To Wait For The Lord When Life Feels Like Garbage-Stephen Altrogge

Life has felt pretty crappy lately.

Now let me just say that, in the grand scheme of things, my life is pretty much cupcakes and bounce houses. In a world filled with Boko Haram, school shootings, cancer, and a thousand other heart-wrenching tragedies, my life is pretty cushy.

Nevertheless, it still feels…hard.

For the last three months, we’ve had a least one child sick and home from school almost every day. On top of that, my old nemesis depression has been dogging my footsteps, making me feel like I wake up under a dark cloud.

It’s been hard to wait for the Lord to bring relief. Rest. Peace. Joy.

And I know I’m not alone. All of us have something we’re waiting for the Lord to do.

To bring a spouse.

To give life a barren womb.

To save a wandering child.

To repair a once-treasured, now shattered relationship.
