The Wait is Over! Wait and See Begins Now!

“Wait and See” Study Leaders {Week 1} | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies | #WaitAndSee #P31OBS

Hey Everyone! Welcome to Proverbs 31 OBS! My name is Melissa Taylor and I’m so happy that you have joined us for the Wait and See Online Bible Study!

This book, Wait and See: Finding Peace in God’s Pauses and Plans by Wendy Pope is different than any book we’ve done before! Check out this video to find out how and why this one is unique:

I hope you are as ready and excited about this one as we are!

Just like I promised in the video, we have something for you with all you need to know about this week in OBS. It’s called the Weekly Lowdown, and in this little printable handout, you can find these sweet things:

  • The first 3 chapters of Wait and See (for those still waiting to get your book)
  • Verse of the Week Lockscreen
  • Facebook Cover Photo
  • Conference Call Series information
  • Social Media Links
  • Facebook Party information and link
  • Bible Study LIVE Week 1 Link
  • Suggested Study Plan

2016_OBS_Uninvited_Weekly_Lowdown_Button-01

There are two things we believe we do well here. The first is Bible study. And you will get that as you read the book and do the Bible readings and assignments on your own. The second is community. We rely on your participation for that to happen. That’s what the “Let’s Chat” section below is all about.

Please join in the conversation with us! There’s nothing we like more than getting to know you and hear how God is stirring your heart through Bible study.

Let’s Chat:

Observe — We want to get to know you! Introduce yourself and let us know where you are joining us from. I’ll start~ I’m Melissa and I’m doing this Bible study from my den in Charlotte, NC.  🙂

Bible — Our verse of the week is Isaiah 64:4. Aren’t we thankful that God acts on our behalf?

" Isaiah 64:4 (NIV) Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him." | Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies | Week 1 Verse | #WaitAndSee #P31OBS

 

Stretch — This week, I plan to do my Bible study early in the morning in my quiet den before I go to work. My two dogs will most likely join me! When, where and how do you plan to work your Bible study time into your life this week?

        • Natalie Gad says:

        Greetings ladies! What fun to read through all the places this OBS is reaching!
        I live in Billings, Montana, Big Sky country! I will be doing my study in my den or quiet space/prayer room each morning after I send my husband off to work! This is my second OBS and I am looking forward to God transforming me during this “waiting season!”

      • Thank you.

      • Hello Donna
        I’m having trouble “posting”, I’m only able to reply. Any suggestions?

      • My name is Brenan and I’m in south Alabama. I’ll likely do the study in the evenings, I have a few conditions that make that my highest functioning time.

        • I am from tbe St. Louis Missouri area and plan to do the study in the evenings after my kids are in bed and my papers are graded?!!

      • My name is Shamil and I am from Oklahoma! I’ve been waiting to start this study and pray for the discipline to do this every morning before I start my daily routine. I want this to be the start of my daily routine, that I can’t start my day without seeking God with the help of you all! My busy life is not mine and I want to give it back to Him!

      • Jamie Clark says:

        Hi my name is Jamie Clark and I’m from South Texas. I will be doing my study at night just before going to sleep. That way it will be the last thing I read and do.

        I’m currently doing another study called The Armor Of God by Priscilla Shirer. I decided to do this study as well because I’m not a good “Wait and See” type person. I always feel like I did something to cause the wait. Looking forward to receiving God’s Word on this.

        Have a great evening
        J-me

      • Hello, my name is Maria and I probably won’t be able to get the book but I’ll be in on the study from Kalispell Montana in my cabin with my two dogs and son,

      • Alexandra says:

        Hi everyone! I forgot to check in, oops! This is my first OBS and I am a night owl in Florida, so I’ll be on later in the evening. I’ll try to give my response much earlier next time though so I can actually interact with you all ?. Firefox wouldn’t stop crashing when I tried scrolling to the bottom to reply! Third time will work, lol.
        This first verse reminded me that when I’ve wondered how it was going to work out, God stepped in and made it happen, Amen! Just had to remember to be patient.Great first verse.

I’m get a Really late start due to chronic health issues, but hoping to do the current day’s study and catch up on 1-2 each day. I always love reading the bible and being disabled finding time usually isn’t too difficult. I should be doing it mostly mid-day, ‘from the comfort of my bedroom’as one other person said. ☺ Looking forward to hopefully interacting with you all from here forward, on the blog and Facebook. Blessings to all.?

  3. Awesome Pamela, by God’s will and your determination you will make it happen.
    Lake Forest sounds like a beautiful place to study God’s word – next to a lake with forest surroundings, at least thats what i picture. sounds fabulous.

    • I love that you picture that! unfortunately its not:( I think God knew that I wouldn’t be able to handle the bugs if I lived near a forest. But I think I”l picture that as I wake up early and spend this time with God.:)

  5. As I am a shift worker my study will move from morning to night depending on what shifts I’m on. I have never done an online study nor have I done a study intentionally on my own (as in not in a small group meeting together) I feel God has led me to this study so I want to make the time to do this study well. I would like to get more discipline in reading and studying God’s word. I hope this is a start.

God bless you! Laura

    • Hi. Where in New Zealand do you live? I visited there many years ago and fell in love with the country. My daughter and I were just talking this morning that if we ever left the United States, where we live, New Zealand would be in the top few countries to move to. It was a random conversation. 🙂

  10. Amy Borba says:

    Hi, my name is Amy,
    I’ll be doing my study in the early evening from my cozy apartment in North Pole, Alaska!

    • Theresa Madden says:

      Hi, Amy! Alaska is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been! Where is North Pole in relation to, say, Fairbanks?

      • Amy Borba says:

        Hey Theresa!
        North Pole is about a 10-15 minute drive south of Fairbanks! It’s a very short, small commute. You can get there by highway or take the one main road (badger road) that connects them. I actually grew up off Badger, so basically smack dab in the middle of Fairbanks and North Pole!
        Alaska is absolutely amazing!

    • Amy Eklund says:

      I spent most of my childhood in Anchorage and I have always dreamed of going back to visit. AK is so beautiful and I had so much fun there as a kid! Those are some of my favorite memories. I’m glad to see someone from AK here!

  11. Is the video attached in the email?

I am in a wait and see season due to my husband leaving me after 30 years together. I am excited about my future though and God’s plans for me. Staying close to God is where I need to be and I am thankful for this ministry.

    • Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies Team says:

      Cindy, So thankful you are here. We hope you find peace in Gods word as you go through this most difficult time! Big hugs!!

    • Cindy, I have been through your period of waiting when my husband and I separated after 25 years and eventually divorced after another 4. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you! You will feel His arms around you when you need it most.

    • Hi Cindy! I’m in Macon, GA and will be praying for you throughout this study. Six years ago, my dad (who was my preacher all my life) left my mom after 58 years of marriage. He was 80 at the time and married a girl that was 49. It was devastating. My mom is the most amazing and faithful woman I have ever known and you sound like a strong spiritual lady like her. I hope you will find peace in this storm and come out better off like my mom!

  33. Hi, my name is Amy. I work the overnight shift for a media company, so I will be trying to do my Bible study in the early afternoons when I wake up. I’m excited to wait and see how God works his plans in my life.

  34. Staci Brock says:

    Hello, I’m Staci, and I already started reading…the Introduction about blew me away! I even challenged myself to do the writing (being more a talker, than a writer!) All that was written, spoke directly to my heart, to my family’s situation (in a VERY similar situation as Diana), I have this book on Kindle, pretty much highlighted all I read and sent some sections to my husband who is waiting for us in Colorado…he too was encouraged. I will be reading and doing this study any chance I get, as we wait on Him to let us know when we are to empty the storage unit and move to CO.

    • Jen-P31 OBS Study Leader says:

      Staci,

      I love this. I hear ya about the highlighting! I don’t think I have an empty page in my book. Praying you have God’s peace during your wait to CO.

I’m truly excited to join this study and I’m grateful for being here.

  49. Hi I’m Paige, and I have not decided when in my day I will do my bible study. I work in the evenings and get home pretty late, so it’s hard to get up early in the morning. I’m going to start the first week doing them when I get home from work to unwind and go to sleep with spiritual things on my mind to replace the concern I often have over how my life is being guided and how to be faithfully aware and trust in how God is directing my steps. If I find that this plan doesn’t work, I’ll try the morning study time route. I am in a season of waiting for many things, and I am grateful to be here for this opportunity to learn more about the value of waiting for all God has in store for us.
    P.S. It’s pretty cool that people from all over the world are participating in this study.

        Sally

    • Hi Sally,
      I understand where you are. I have been praying for several years now about what God has planned for me when I do retire.

    I am very excited to start my first online bible study with this group and book. I am in place in my life that is difficult and changing. I know God placed this opportunity in front of me to learn more about His word and to be willing to “Wait and See” all the great things He still has planned for my life.

  146. Ashley Lambert says:

    O: I am Ashley and we are currently living in Tampa, FL.

    B: I am so very thankful He acts on my behalf and try so hard to remember that every day! I love being able to look back and see only His footprints through hard times.

  148. I’m Erika. And I’ll be joining from Louisiana. I’ll most likely do the study from my cozy bed before getting up for work.

    • Raelyn G. says:

  149. Hi everyone,

  150. Heather Barnett says:

    Morning! My name is Heather and I’m from upstate NY. Right along the Erie Canal. I plan on doing the bible study as the sun rises just after my son heads off the school. This study came at a perfect time. With several anointings, and promises that all will be perfect in love and ministering gifts, I am in a waiting period. A guest minister said to me “I’ve got my running shoes on and am at the gate ready to run” but the gate isn’t open yet. Patience, perseverance I hear. So I am looking forward to staying steady in His hands as I allow Him to mold me and fire me for the finishing product

  156. Good morning everyone! My name is Jessica and this is my first OBS. I am oh so very excited for it! I’m doing this study in the mornings before work from Meansville, GA with my sleepy little black lab. I am so thankful God works on my behalf and throughout this study I want to become more intentional about my thanksgiving. Like Wendy says our focus shifts too often to the object of our wait rather than the Person of our Faith and sometimes these pauses in life are to keep us safe from something we ought not seek. Hope everyone has a great start to their week!

  157. Shanna Boyd says:

    Good Morning! I am Shanna, from McKenzie, TN. I plan on doing my studying early in the morning with my two fur babies, Ella and Mattie, before starting my day as a high school teacher. I’m so excited and hopeful about this study!

I’ll be doing it on UK time around 7-8 AM before starting my work from home for the day. I really hope to grow through this study, and learn to focus on God who gives me hope, more than what I hope for itself.

  161. rebecca chandler says:

    I’m rebecca, and I’ll be joining from Lincoln, Nebraska. (Go Big Red!!!) This is my first P31 OBS, and I am so excited! I’ll most likely be doing this study in the evenings from the comfort of my favorite reading chair in my comfy pajamas ?

  168. Theresa Madden says:

    Hi, everyone–so neat to see that people from all over the world–New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Indonesia, India, Europe, the Caribbean, U.S., Canada, etc.–are studying God’s Word–how exciting! Imagine the party we’ll have one day in Heaven! I’m from Lexington, SC, and I’ll be doing my study in the morning in my living room with our dog and cats around.
    Love the verse this morning–so often the struggle is just to believe what God says! Thank you, P31 staff, for guiding us through Wendy’s study!

  170. My name is Cher from Louisiana and like Erika C, I will be joining the Bible Study from my cozy bed first thing in the morning and again before I retire for the evening.

  171. Good morning from Virginia.

    I’m Robin and I will be giving up my morning coffee and TV for morning coffee and Bible study!

    I am excited for this because I haven’t been studying or reading my Bible in a long time. I can relate to what Wendy said about life not being what I thought it would be. I grew up in church and I am a preacher’s daughter. But for the last few years (my late thirties now forties) I have lost my happiness and joy and peace and etc. I had some medical issues and got that better but our body is more than just physical and I realized that I need the Ultimate Physian to help with the whole body. That part takes longer….so I’m ready to “wait and see”…….

    PS I have started enjoying the little wait moments because we are so busy, I take a waiting moment to rest.? (But the big waiting is harder.)

    • Good morning Robin from Lynchburg, VA!! I’m so glad you’re doing this study and I pray that the Lord reveals Himself to you in a mighty way.

I have to tag team it and do a little in the morning before work and the bulk after work to help me wind down.

This morning my yellow lab Sandy is all curled up beside me. We love the beginning to the sunshine filled day here. Blessings everyone!

    To get this study done, I have set aside time on the weekend to get my reading done, and set my early alarm so that I have an hour of time in the morning to write and process after reading the blog post. I am so excited to see what God has in store for us through Wait and See! He has led me through a variety of seasons of waiting, with different intensities. SO thankful I have the opportunity to draw from my past as I learn to prepare for what God has in store for my future.

    I’m thankful for the timing of this study. My heart was broken by a boy a few months ago and while I’ve prayed and cried out to God, he seems to be replying with a’ not right now’ answer, which can be very frustrating if you don’t have the resources to handle it! And then an email about a book about waiting – thank you!

    • Hey Julie! My name’s Ashley! I am actually currently living as a full-time missionary in El Salvador, but I spent my whole life before this in Columbus! Where in Columbus do you live? What’s your favorite coffee shop? I might have a few hidden gems you should try! Maybe a perfect place to do your study!

      Buenas noches, amiga!

  227. Michelle Duncan says:

    Hey ladies, I’m Michelle from Atlanta, GA. Just like the last OBS, I’m planning to do my study in the afternoon when I get home from work or the gym, so I don’t feel rushed and can allow myself to meditate on what I’m learning.

  228. I am in Lakeland, TN (right outside of Memphis). I am so excited about this Bible study! This is my first OBS and frankly my first Bible with other people beside myself!

    I’m Sarah and I am joining you from Christiansburg Virginia. I plan to do my bible study in the mornings when I have alone time.

  230. I am Lori from southern Iowa I will be doing my Bible study early morning. This is my first OBS and I am very excited. I should say this is really my first Bible study. I have been wanting to do one and the ones we have had at my church just never seemed to fit into my schedule since I am nurse and would work every other Wednesday. I do know what it is to wait and see. One thing I had prayed for was for one of my son’s (have 4 grown ones)to know the Lord. When he was 26 1/2 he accepted Christ. I was in the parking lot of the grocery store when he messaged me to tell me that he had and I wept tears of joy. I also have another son who is 29 that I am praying the same thing for. Excited about this study!

    • I am Deb and I’m from Iowa as well. Just for the heck of it, I searched the posts for “Iowa” and found 11 references to Iowa, so there are 11 of us either from Iowa, or with Iowa ties. I just thought that was interesting. I’m planning to do the OBS most days in the early afternoon as my schedule varies from day to day. This is my first Bible study of any kind (raised Catholic) so I have no idea what to expect or how to do the study, but I’m anxious to learn.

  231. Lauren Cootes says:

    Hi, I’m Lauren! I love outside of Nashville, TN. I plan on doing my study in the mornings before my kids get up and before I get ready for work.

  232. Hi! My name is Kathy Gurule and I’ll be joining everyone from Los Lunas, New Mexico after I get home from visiting my daughter and her family in Virginia.

    B-Beyond thankful! More than what words can express!
    S- I usually like to read later in the evening once I have my family (kids and husband) settled in. I find this to be the best time to study uninterrupted and have that peace and quiet with God.

  256. O–I’m Carmella from Santa Fe, NM
    B–I’ve got a long-lasting wait and see. But I also have a very current issue I’m waiting on and will be taking action on probably this week as I try to schedule a meeting with my son’s principal. But yesterday as I was thinking about what I need to express, I prayed out to God to go before me and set up the perfect time to meet, to prepare my heart and the principal’s heart for this meeting. My goal is to do what is best for my son and bring glory to God for the special little boy He entrusted to me. So with confidence and the confirmation of this weeks VOW I know He is working for me and fighting before me.
    S—I will be doing this study very early in the morning before my kids wake up. I will sit at my kitchen table with a cup of coffee and dive in.

    • Carmella,
      I’m praying for all three of you. May God use this meeting to bring the three of you together so that you can focus on meeting the needs of your child. May you create a plan that has your child and his/her strengths in mind and come along side Him/her to build knowledge and skills in the areas of need. May this plan bring you together for the sake of your child.

    Today, I also started a fast for the next ten days. I have been going through so rough waters and the funny thing about this is that God has been quite. I shared with God that I was so tired of waiting. Please Father, tell me what to do I am surrendered to you, and I will do anything. I get to work and what should pop on my screen but a new OBS and the title of the Study “Wait and See”. Well that was God talking directly to me. Therefore, I am here, excited and ready to experience my own “Wait and See” story.

    • Dianne Bullock says:

      Hi Judi,
      I used to live in Villa Rica, GA for a long, long time. Lived in GA 28 years (LOVED it) but moved to MS to be hear my aging father. (I worked in Atlanta, too. Long commute, huh. lol)
      I did the last study, too, on Uninvited, and I’m doing this one because of issues in my life as well. It seems God put these studies right out there for me in particular.
      My heart goes out to you, as well as my prayers for your own “wait & see” story.
      Dianne

  266. Good morning! I’m Karen from Shreveport, Louisiana. I am a preschool teacher, and attending a conference this summer, one of the speakers told us to set aside God time every day. God literally spoke to me while I was sitting there-and I came home and pulled out my dusty Bible. Since this summer I have been getting up early to do some Bible study before my day starts. God has been very patient with me, so with my cup of coffee, and my two sweet dogs, we are excited to start this study each morning.

  349. Observe — I am Audra and I’ll be doing this Bible study all over my house! LOL I work from home and have a home office, but that feels too “professional” to do my study in. A lot of it will be in a comfy chair in the living room or at the kitchen table.

    Stretch — I get up early for work (4a most days), so morning is out for me. I’d like to do the study early afternoon, with reading the materials in the evening the night before. Reading in bed before I go to sleep is the very best time for me.

I am excited to participate in this study with so many wonderful women and can’t wait to see what God brings out through the study – my only regret is not knowing about this study until last Friday and enrolling in a small group. I have done several online studies with Proverbs 31 and love all the insight and personal growth I’ve gained through these – I’ve been away for a couple due to life circumstances and I’m so excited to be back! Praying you all have a blessed, wonderful first week of OBS!

    Hi, I’m Natalia and I live in Oklahoma. I typically do my bible studies in the morning before I start my day drinking coffee sitting in my kitchen or in my living room. As I finished Uninvited I had decided I would sit a bible study out. I was able to be apart of a small group for Uninvited and they were all commenting that they had signed up for Wait and See. So the people pleaser that I am went along with the crowd and signed up. So I looked to see what exactly I was signing up for and read the book title again Wait and See and read what the book was about. I heard His voice speak, Aren’t you in a Wait and See moment in your life? Aren’t you struggling with it, right now?! So it was another moment when God speaks, where He is right and I am crying,YES!!! I look forward to see what God is up to through this bible study.

    Hello y’all! My name is Hayleah Baker and I am joining y’all from my comfy bed in Nixa, Missouri. So excited for this bible study. I haven’t been doing well about getting into the word lately so I’m forcing myself to stick with this. I’m not gonna start something as amazing and God-honoring as this and bail out after two weeks. I’m gonna complete this study because I know God has great things in store for me and I can’t wait to discover those and apply them to my life.

  445. Great Monday Morning Girlies-

    I’m Vanora and joining from Landover, Maryland, also home of the Washington Redskins (Yaaay!).
    My bible study is divided out several ways: I peek at the weekly scripture when I first wake up and after reading the First5 devotional for the day; I also take public transportation (approx. 40 minutes) so, this is time to dig deeper into the study and note taking; and finally at lunch time – I pass on having lunch with my co-workers to get some extra study time in. Whew! its a lot but I love this OBS Study and so look forward to my daily studies and quiet time with God.

  446. Hello everyone, my name is Bonnie and I’m from central Ohio. This is my first online bible study, well It’s my first bible study as an adult and I’m 51! God has been working on me for a long time and I’m finally listening.
    My soulmate died February 5, 2016, after a short battle with cancer. We spent our last 6 weeks together in the ICU unit and after the fourth time with life support I made the decision to take him off the support. He took his last breath while I was holding him.
    I despise waiting and patient is a word not in my dictionary. Well, that’s how I used to be. Ive learned to be patient with my grief, there is no other way. As I’m growing with God and feeling the strength begin to seep into my soul, I’m found this bible study group. He led me here. I am ready.
    I plan to start my study every morning. I’m blessed to have plenty of time available without distractions. I’m so thankful to have this study look forward to.

This helps me get in a great spot to set up for success with the rest of the day. I love being able to pray to God and seek Him for thing when I wake up.

  485. Hello, I’m Amber and I am in cold NYS. At least it’s cold right now! I’m really excited to do this OBS. I like to do my Bible study either morning or afternoon when the kiddos are at school. That gives me all day to really think and pray about it. I also like to be a week ahead so that I don’t feel like I’m rushing to catch up. 🙂

  486. Hello, I am Lauren and I live in Tucson, AZ. I have a little area in my den that I sit and do bible study. I like to light a candle; grab a cup of coffee, pray about the study and then begin. My favorite time to do Bible study and alone time with the Lord in early in the morning, which is weird because I am not normally a morning person, but this is when I feel the closest with the Lord and the morning calm has a perfect little beauty to it. I can’t wait to see what this study and the Lord revile to my heart.
