What is a "lady in waiting"? Does it really mean I have to wait? I'm not good at waiting. Traditionally a Lady in Waiting was like a personal servant girl for royalty. Does that mean that they were experts at "waiting" for the royal Somebody to give them a task? It makes sense, now why I'm still waiting.. for a lot of things... maybe I haven't been listening to my Master, or maybe I am too distracted.
I am waiting for an answer from ISI whether or not I am officially hired. I am waiting so that I can begin raising support. I am waiting so I can move to West Lafayette. I am waiting so that I can find a team of volunteers, eager to partner with me to help int'l students and their families. I am waiting for many other things... but I am thankful for God's faithfulness in the waiting process. I used to write poetry, short stories, and songs. I was never very good at it, but it was a creative outlet that I believe helped in worship. I have had numerous hobbies throughout my life time. I always seemed to get bored with them after a while and crave something new to try. Ever curious and always asking why, (yes, I was that child) I am ever searching and waiting for something new. Is this a good attribute or dangerous? Is it just a neutral personality trait?
