A Good Connection

My Blackberry was on it's last legs. The screen would freeze, making in difficult to use unless you turned it off and then back on several times a day.  I am not technologically savvy at all but I decided to get a new Android phone that is really cool.  My niece works for our wireless carrier so when she brought me the new phone, she and her brother gave me a thorough tutorial.  Very soon I was familiar enough with the phone to do all sorts of cool things.  However, I failed to learn how to retrieve a call!  After several missed calls I finally got the hang of answering a call.  By now you have probably figured out that I am not always the sharpest crayon in the box.

Today in Bible study during Leah's prayer, one of our ladies' phone rang.  She had forgotten to silence it.  She managed to silence the call and then another ladies' phone rang.  She silenced her call as well and we had a little giggle during our prayer.   As Leah was praying, she thanked the Lord that he never silences our calls.  I am so thankful for that.  He always takes our calls.  He never mutes us.  He never sends us straight to His voice mail.  He never screens our calls even when He sees on His caller ID that it's me.   Our calls to Heaven are never dropped and there is always a good connection.  He is "on call" 24/7.  His network is always available.  He can "hear us now".  Praise Him with me that He always hears our prayers.

 "Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all you heart."  Jeremiah 29: 12-13

 "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."  Jeremiah 33:3

Life is Good,

That was pretty wild how both of those phones rang at almost the same time. I think Satan definitely does not like what we are learning in this study.

So glad that you like your new phone. I may have to defect from my BB to an Android.

I liked this analogy and I'm going to remember it next time a phone rings during a prayer or while in church.
Thanks for sharing!

I'm so glad that God doesn't have voice mail...because I have Him on speed dial! LOL

Oh, yes. I often think this when my children are peppering me with questions and demands, and I just want to run and hide. So thankful my needs never overwhelm Him and make Him want to run away from me! *grin*

Hi beautiful friend,

It was a joy Cindy to meet you in person -- you carry the spirit of the LORD. You have a gentle and beautiful nature. I wish we'd had more time to chat. If you're ever in my neck of the woods, PLEASE come and visit. Love you much!

You made some really good points in this today Cindy! So glad God always "takes our calls" and never has a busy line! Mississippi

Hi dear one!

What a powerful message. I too am so thankful that GOD never silences our calls, sends us to voice mail or tells us to hold on!!!!

He is so mindful of tender in His care towards us -- always available -- always inclining HIS ear to hear us.

He's an awesome GOD and a precious Abba Father. I stand in awe of HIM.

I miss your sweet face! Praying for you this moment.

The next time I drop a call for some reasons, I'd always remember - with humility - that God always listens, if not answers immediately, our call.

Thank you for sharing!

Amen, Amen, Amen! So glad our God is always there to listen any day, time, or hour!! Love our Lord.

Life is good indeed, for we have a God who only places us on hold for our own benefit. And even then, the hold music is a hallelujah that's got a great beat and we can dance to it!
