Still Waiting by Ann Swindell


What if God wants you to wait?
Most of us know what it’s like to wait for God to change our circumstances. But, whether we’re waiting for physical healing, emotional breakthrough, or better relationships, waiting is something we usually try to avoid. Why? Because waiting is painful and hard. The truth is, it’s also inevitable.

In Still Waiting, Ann Swindell explores the depths of why God wants us to wait by chronicling her own compelling story of waiting for healing from an incurable condition. She offers a vibrant retelling of the biblical account of the Bleeding Woman that parallels her story―and yours, too.

Let Ann help you see the promise that is hidden in the ache of waiting and the hope of what God can―and will―do as you wait on him.

At first I put off this book for awhile because it seemed like it was going to be just like every other story about someone struggling with something. Finally I gave in and I am so glad I did, this story reminded me so much of myself in my journey of social anxiety. The author is simply honest about everything, and though its not the happy ending everyone likes, its blunt. I really enjoyed this and it was encouraging to see that someone gets that it doesn’t always turn out for the best in life.

I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars, it was very encouraging but some sections kind of repeated themselves and said the exact same thing. I would recommend it to anyone who has a mental illness and wants something encouraging but honest to let them see that they are not alone.
