Holy Middle Ground
You know the time you spend waiting – between when you pray the prayer and when God brings the answer? Today I heard that space referred to as the “Holy Middle Ground”.
It’s that space of time when it seems that things are going so incredibly slow. You know there is a plan and a purpose, but you can’t see anything ‘happening’. You are waiting for God to answer a prayer, or waiting for someone to return home, or just simply waiting to get through. Whatever your middle ground may be, there’s a reason for it. Holy middle ground is the place where roots go deep, hope gets settled into your heart and faith becomes your life’s breath. Waiting is hard. And the in-between places can seem never-ending. Don’t give up. Keep standing.
This middle ground is holy
