Ever feel like you're stuck in between phases of life?  Just stuck in the middle.  And all there is to do is wait?

I've blogged a little bit about my anxiety before, and really spilled the beans on all the scriptures I cling to when my anxiety is getting the best of me.

If you struggle with anxiety / stress is at an all time high right now I strongly encourage you to check out those list of verses in hopes that you'll find one to use in your time of darkness.

But today I'm going in a slightly different direction.  Yes, this period of waiting can get me feeling all the stress and anxiety as well, but I'm focusing on the lighter aspect.  When you just need some encouragement that God's got this.  HE knows what He's doing.

1. Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time.

2. Even miracles take a little time.  [buy the print here]

5. Psalm 33:20-22  Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.

As I was compiling this list, #20 seriously hit home with me.  The worst part about these stages of life where I feel like I'm stuck in between and waiting is the unknown.  But it's important to remember God only wants what's best for us, and that His plan is best.
