The phone rings, it’s ignored
it rings again, such an irritant
his phone jumps about the table
exasperated he answers
“she isn’t here, she’ll call you back”
(sobbing on the other end of the line)
“My car was just hit. I’m sitting on the side of the road”
“Are you okay honey? Here’s mom.”
How often do we get calls that we don’t pick up?
I have family on their own ring tone and I still miss their calls.
Ever think about this? God always hears our cries for help and He knows each of our voices (kind of like heavenly ring tones.) Not only does God hear our cries, He hears us complain, whine, beg for direction. The phone exchange in Heaven has no down time and our calls are always answered – no dropped calls. Try prayer the next time you feel at the end of your earthly rope – He is listening!
“In my distress I called upon the Lord, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry for help before Him came into His ears.”
“The righteous cry, and the Lord hears And delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
And saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Psalm 34:17 & 18
“Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.”
