Waiting for Wonder
"Waiting for Wonder"
Marlo Schalesky

What if, in this waiting, God is calling us to more?
It’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?
Join author Marlo Schalesky on a unique, contemplative journey to reveal the wonder that is often missed when we find ourselves struggling to wait well. Walking through the life of the biblical character Sarah, one who knows what it means to wait, you will discover a glimpse of God’s character that will give you strength to keep hoping and praying for the desires of your heart.
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.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.  Marlo's Schalesky take on Sarah's story is so original.  I loved reading how she imagined the way Sarah felt and what she was going through.  There were many things I learned from reading this book.  "Waiting for Wonder" was exactly what I needed, as I am in a period of waiting myself!  I was encouraged and strengthened by reading this book and allowing God to use it to teach me.
