What Are You Waiting For?

It seems like a lifetime since I read The Prayer of Jabez. It was within those pages that I came to know and understand the impact that Divine Appointments can have on our lives. Today, as I sat in the waiting room of the hospital I found myself in the midst of pastoral care palooza and offering prayer to weary stranger in my midst. I knew that I was in good space when conversations became prayer requests and those became stories. I witnessed with my own eyes mourning turned into dancing.

I went to the waiting room while My Love’s caregivers performed various tests, yet while I waited which is the hardest thing for me to do, I met some of the strongest and most courageous souls I have ever had the chance to know. Little did I know that each conversation was the expansion of the borders of my soul’s journey in a effort to ease their pain, I found my own sense of healing.

In a hospital, I would expect miracles to occur in the treatment areas and within the extension of compassionate and sacred care, I never expected to find such in the waiting area. Today and forever the place and space of waiting shall always be a space of hope in the activity of Spirit. The One who never slumbers nor sleeps walks with me as my very present help.

So, I encourage you to not only be aware of the constant opportunities we have to engage the stranger at the gate, but also make room for the stranger within to know peace, grace and mercy in the presence of others. My prayer for you is that you may hurry up and wait and therein may you encounter a love that won’t let you go, a joy that will not let you stand still and a sense of peace that changes you forever.

About Kathy Beasley

Hello Friends, I am Kathy and I am fully committed to helping people discover the truth of who they are by employing my gifts of teaching, speaking, writing, leading and meeting them where they are on their journey. In my role as a Unity Minister, I have found that the greatest work that Spiritual Communities can do in the world has very little to do with those gathered around the table with us, it is for those who exist beyond our walls, liturgy, table and awareness. I am not here to make you comfortable, I am here to challenge you by disturbing your peace. With the help of others, I employ a passionate perspective of utilizing the unconventionality of technology and public theology to help reach out beyond the traditional and social aspects of "church" to those who could benefit from a positive and practical message of hope and peace. Thank you for taking this journey with me and please know that your presence helps make me who I am. This is my story… What’s yours?
