Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Anticipatience is a must-read for single women who are waiting on God for the desire of their hearts - a husband. It's a book about real life, and it's a book about hope - glorious, exciting, abundant hope. Within these pages, you'll find the balance between anticipating God's blessing and being patient for His perfect timing. It is not about launching out on our own in the frantic search for a mate or employing "Ten Steps to Finding the Man of Your Dreams". It's not a personal success story about how the author found her spouse. Rather, Anticipatience brings another side to the story. It's the side that takes a hard look at what's happened to our world, even our churches, and how God's plan for human relationships has been twisted and altered so that we're pushed sometimes to accept our singleness, deny our God-given desires and give up hope. God does call some of us to singleness, for that can be the platform He chooses in some lives to fully display His glory. If God is calling you to serve Him alone, then by all means celebrate it! But if a surrendered and willing heart tells you that's not necessarily His will for your life, then this warm, amusing and often poignant book is for you. Sharon Virkler believes that God has a message for women who don't feel called to a lifetime of singleness. It's the message of Anticipatience. This e-book is an updated and revised edition of the 2004 print version of Anticipatience. Chapter Eight - "A Different View of Singles in the Church" contains new statistics and a revised look at singles in the church today. Also included in this update are questions for reflection and discussion, and a list of all scripture references for each chapter.… (more)
