Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you;
And therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you.
For the Lord is a God of justice;
Blessed are all those who wait for Him.
- Isaiah 30:18

But the truth is that no matter the wait time, God is still faithful. And few things glorify God more than trusting Him in the waiting periods of life. Here are 10 things we can do to help ourselves wait well.
