Who Do You Call?

As I sat at my computer, my thoughts went to many friends who have died from one disease or another. I sincerely don’t mean to be one that causes your thoughts of your friend, family members, or even a mate to put you in a state of unhappiness, but we all know the saying, “The only sure things in this life are death and taxes.” Even though the saying originated with death and taxes, I think they omitted the critical connection of Salvation.

I decided to text my remaining siblings to share about our mother knowing I would not get a response from my estranged sister. However, my brother called me immediately. He was comical and quick-witted. We were on the phone for at least an hour laughing and indulging in recollection of past events about our beloved mother. There are times when simply taking a trip down memory lane helps us get to the other side of our sadness, which is different for different people.

For my brother and me, our conversation ended with joy in the midst of our sadness. We rejoiced because mom knew who to call in so many situations that she had no answers for. These included persistently praying for salvation for unsaved loved ones, the church, let us not leave out her physical health, and the list goes on.

Who do you call when your life has no answers, and the road of your life gets hard and bumpy? When we call on the Lord, let us set our minds on seeking the truth. It is understandable to call on God for a certain answer that we want but let us learn to seek Him for His best answer. If at first you do not like the answer that God gives when you call, stay in His presence, and ask Him to help you conform to Him. Let Him teach you to love what He loves, to think as He thinks, and to do what He does. Always know God’s Word is truth and not fate.

“Call to Me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” (Jer 33:3 NIV).
