I saw in a magazine recently, or a blog, or anyway..somewhere…a reminder to just call someone up to just CHAT. Not a text, or email, or call that you hope reaches voicemail, but an honest to goodness LONG PHONE CALL. One where you used to sit in a chair twirling a cord, one that other people would fight to get you off. For me it’s a call that I can get all the windows and doors wiped down while I chat away –my ADD requires I do something with my hands. (You can always tell at my house when I haven’t talked to my sister or mom enough just based on the filthiness of my windows). Those calls are restorative to relationships and souls.
How about God? When was the last time you called God up and had a long talk with him? You will never get God’s voicemail. Texts are okay, an occasional forwarded email. But He loves when we TALK. He is always listening, waiting for us to pour our hearts out to Him. Sometimes it seems like we are on mute while He chats with someone else, or on hold even. Sometimes it feels like our signal isn’t very strong. But that is not true. We all have a direct, speed dial, line to our Creator and Savior.
So, do two things today…call God and call someone special. Take the time, and see how it helps you.
