he's listening.

lately i've been in kind of a funk. this morning i picked up my phone to call a friend, or my mom, or one of my sisters, hoping one of them would be able to cheer me up...but i wasn't sure who would be available to talk that early in the morning. i figured they're probably busy with their day, getting ready for work or feeding their kids breakfast and i'd probably end up getting a voicemail.

and then i felt God say “what about me? i’m here. i’m listening. talk to me.” wow. why is it so easy to turn to a friend and forget that God is the one who is always there, ready and willing to talk with me. not just willing, he desires to talk to me. he's there to listen to my fears and worries and then to remind me that he has it all under control. he's there to comfort me with his peace. he has all the answers i could ever need. we will never get his voicemail, or get put on hold, or have to wait for him to call us back. he's there. right now. just waiting for us to call on him and talk to him. he won't disappoint.

"In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears." Psalm 18:6

thanks for the reminder. sadly, we've probably all done the same thing. it's good to be reminded that He is always right there, ready to listen. love ya!
