Sometimes, we enter seasons of life where we are forced to wait. We might enter a season of discernment, new opportunities show up, or we are required to cease doing activities or ministries due to circumstances.

These past few weeks have been challenging for all of us. We all found ourselves in undesirable and unexpected situations as we had to face a reality most of us have never experienced before. We encountered unique challenges, concerns and fears.

Just before Jesus ascended to heaven, he gave his disciples clear directions on what to do next. Jesus had finished what he came to do and was about to return to the Father. The mission of being his witnesses in all the world was about to be passed on to his disciples, the church that was about to form and therefor to us.

Just before that, however, was the piece that most of us do not spend that much time on. He basically told them the words a friend of mine jokingly said sound somewhat familiar these days: Stay at home and wait.
