Call Home

When I’m away from home and away from Jeff, I call home a time or two. It’s not that I’m already homesick, or that I don’t really want to leave home , but that I miss home. I miss him.

I remember when I snapped this picture of Wanda on the morning we were headed back home from our “Sisters Retreat 2007”.

I had walked outside to take some pictures of the cabin in the morning light and Wanda was standing there “calling home”. She searched for the spot with the best reception and then called her baby girl. She needed to hear her voice. Her baby girl needed to hear her mommy’s voice as well.

I think about us. As children of the Most High God, How often do we “call home”? Do we seek out the place with the best reception?

When crisis arise in our lives, is there a hesitation before we seek Him?

Are we wondering if we’ve neglected communication for too long? Wondering if His address has changed?

It hasn’t. He didn’t move, nor did He rearrange the furniture and turn your bedroom into an exercise room. It’s still just as you left it. Perhaps a few cobwebs have gathered in your prayer closet, but I promise it is still there.

Today, while the thought is still fresh, go there. Before a crisis comes. Keep the communication lines open—call home daily.

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”. Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV

I imagine He’s waiting for your call today….

    I love this Angie. All too often I do act as though He has suddenly left or changed my room around. What a great way to think of it. He is a loving Father who patiently waits for me to call home. And the line is never, ever busy!

    I loved this post .
    How true it is that we don't think about our heavenly father waiting to hear from us . But you are right.
    He loves to hear out voice.Thank you for sharing this. It is encouraging to me.

    My reception is good and I am calling home several times a day as I see HIS day approaching….. I sometimes wonder if we struggle with things today that will gone in a twinkling of an eye tomorrow…. That is what is on my mind tonight!

    This is so true, Angie! I love that scripture from Jeremiah too. Too many of us feel as though we've run too far from home to return without harsh repercussions. That just isn't so. We need to be reminded of this!

    Such a tender reminder about keeping the lines of communication open with God. Thank you for the gentle prod to keep talking to God. This was beautifully “orchestrated” through a picture that preaches a sermon all its own.

    Good to hear from you, Angie. I pray you know the comfort and abiding love of our Father this night.
