In the waiting seasons, our identity is often shaken and we wonder about our PURPOSE. I experienced this personally when I lost my job as a teacher and became very sick as I shared in the video.
Although when all is stripped away, we are reminded of what is really important and making a difference beyond what can be seen in this world.
No matter if we are bedridden or fully mobile, able to eat or dependent upon tubes, staying at home or at the grocery, our focus can be glorifying Jesus.
Sharing the truth of the gospel and loving others isn’t dependent on our circumstances or even our abilities (or lack thereof). Our lives are meant to be a reflection and testimony to the magnitude of love and power of God.
It is my prayer that your heart may be opened to the big and small opportunities He will bring in your waiting. I promise, with Him, NOTHING is wasted.
Here are this weeks’ song recommendations for praising in our waiting.
- “Christ Be Magnified” by Cody Carnes
- “Water and Dust” by Cory Asbury
- “You Say” by Lauren Daigle
- “My Desire” by Jeremy Camp
- “God of the Breakthrough” by Crossroads

Amen! Thank you for sharing!
“Our lives are meant to be a reflection and testimony to the magnitude of love and power of God.” Wow. That really cuts to the quick. I am so easily distracted by my circumstances. I forget they don’t matter. All that matters is to glorify Him. The lesson of Job all over again. Thanks, Allison!
By the way, what did you think of Jaime Jamgochian’s project?
Absolutely! Amen. I absolutely LOVED Jaime’s project. Thank you again for sharing and for your feedback as well!
Alisha! I’m so sorry. I keep wanting to call you Alison. But I do have Alisha on my daily prayer list.😊
