In Due Time: Hope and Encouragement in the Waiting
How long, O Lord, how long???” The reality of life is that we’re all waiting on something. Marriage. Babies. Jobs. Healing. Family restoration. The list could go on and on… Seasons of waiting on the Lord can be hard, discouraging and exhausting. Perhaps it’s only been weeks or months. But for some, the wait has lasted years. Or maybe you’ve faced an unimaginable trial, such as the loss of a loved one. The journey through grief, sorrow and pain can be filled with isolation and hopelessness. No matter how hard your journey has been, there is a purpose for all of the pain. Come join me in this 60-day devotional as I share pieces of my own story, including both loss and longing. Through the truth shared from God's Word, you will find that it is possible to have joy and declare that God is good, even in the midst of waiting. As you read each devotion, my prayer is that your heart will be healed, your mind renewed and your spirit encouraged to seek, trust and praise the Lord through the storms you are facing today.

Melanie Murphy is an animated communicator, finding her passion as a speaker and professional voice over talent. Known for her quick wit and fun-loving spirit, she intentionally celebrates life in the everyday moments and the big ones too. One of her current goals she’s prepared to unleash confetti for is the news of a baby.

When Melanie isn’t helping Caroline with her ministry, she’s behind the microphone as a voice actor, expertly conveying a company’s message in a way that gets to the heart of the idea. She voices commercials, online videos, training modules and all kinds of other interesting projects that require a polished voice.
