I love how Wendy uses the journey of King David, and his Psalms, to teach readers how to handle a waiting season. Additionally, she uses personal "waiting stories" of herself and women she knows, which makes the book more relatable. In Wait and See, she doesn't deny the complicated emotions her readers might feel, and encourages readers to explore those emotions through journaling. Reading and especially journaling were often cathartic. In fact, I haven't finished all the prompts yet; I'll have to go back and do that.
That being said, Wait and See is sometimes more discouraging than encouraging. Sometimes I wanted to throw this book across the room. I admit, I sometimes take Scripture and interpretations of it too literally, so that may be my fault. But a lot of what Wendy asks or says seems to be, "What are you doing to make your wait worse? How can you improve your Christian behavior?" Perhaps without meaning to, she implies that waiting doesn't have to be difficult--if it is, it's because we are selfish, don't love God enough, want the wrong things, or are idolizing the objects of our waits.
Now, I admit to being guilty of some of that, like idolizing--and repenting on a regular basis. But really, Wendy? Waiting is only difficult because we "don't love God enough?" It's somehow a crime to long for certain things--unless of course you're longing in one prescribed way? I'm not entirely sure I buy that. Plus, Wendy consistently puts David on a pedestal, pointing out how well, almost perfectly, he waited to be king. She pays lip service to his anger, fear, discouragement, etc., but then comes right back and says, "But David loved God really well, so those emotions didn't affect him." Um, that's not the David I know. Yes, he was a role model and a Godly man--but he felt, cared, and struggled harder than almost anybody in the Bible. Wendy Pope paints him as someone modern Christians can never live up to.
Bottom line? If you're looking for a book of encouragement that challenges you *while* validating your humanity and what you're going through, this is probably not the book for you. You'll draw closer to God, but you'll probably feel like scum doing it. That being said, there are several gems in here, if you're willing to dig past the self-righteousness.
