Call on Me

on February 24, 2015

It was one of those nights when I sat by the phone, waiting for the call that never came. As I cried myself to sleep again, I asked God why it always ended this way. Why couldn’t Bill* love me and call me when he said he would?

That night I came to realize that much like me, God often waited for me to call when I said I would. My quiet times would be put aside for every little thing, and soon it would be days without even cracking my Bible.

The Bible does say we are created in God’s image, so it makes sense that He feels the same things we do.

When Bill finally called, he was full of talk about his week and how bad it was for him. He never bothered to find out how my week was, or how I was doing. Sadly, when I finally call on God after a time away, I’m the same: it’s all about me. I go on and on without giving God an opportunity to get a word in.

Thankfully, God is always glad to hear from us, no matter how long it’s been. He will always have time to listen.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a call to make …

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.                                                                                                        ~Jeremiah 29:12

* Yeah, I changed the name to protect the innocent. 🙂
