All You Have To Do Is Call!


Have you ever left a message for your doctor to call you and then waited all day for his reply? You can’t leave the house because you might miss him, and every time the phone rings, you’re disappointed when it’s not him.

We live in a quick-fix society, but we don’t always have quick access to those who can give us the answers we need.

Easy access and a listening ear are blessings offered by the Father to His obedient child. He is always on call!

David knew that well, and he took full advantage of his loving relationship with the Lord in calling upon Him continually. David had no trouble crying out to the Lord. He never hesitated; he easily and confidently lifted his voice to the One he knew could help. He poured out his heart; he wept; he pleaded for the Lord’s intervention.

I sometimes struggle with feeling I have to be strong when I speak with others Christians. I think I’m supposed to exhibit all the fruit of the Spirit even when I’m weak and in great distress. I think I should be joyful, patient, kind toward any enemy that may assail me. I want to show others what a “big girl” I am. I want to be strong in my own strength!

In truth, I am the Father’s imperfect child who will always be in process of growing. So what should I do with these feelings of desperation, this sense of a crushed spirit?

Our Father wants us, His children, to share freely our whole hearts with Him. My relief always lies in being honest with Him.

David is a wonderful role model for how to cast my burden upon Lord and find relief for my soul. He truly lifted up his soul to his Father: “God, here is what’s going on, and this is how i feel. I’m losing all hope, and I’m paralysed with fear. I need you!”

David easily became the child seeking refuge and solace from his Father. He admitted his inability to save himself, his total dependence on God. His intimate knowledge of God enabled him to say, “I will call on the LORD, who is worthy of praise, for he saves me from my enemies”  (Psalms 18:3).

David did not try to do for himself what he knew only God could do.

What David did well was cry. What God did well was answer and he still does!

ALL I HAVE TO DO IS CALL !!!

TOYS IN MY HEAD!


One morning, our daughter Dara woke up very tired: she hadn’t slept much that night! I asked her the reason for her insomnia, she replied: “I do not know mom, I think I had toys in my head” . It was funny, but it was her way, an 8 years old child, to explain all the thoughts that trotted in her little head that kept her from sleeping. So, for her, insomnia = toys in the head!

I also had this week, “toys in my head.” No way to sleep. The reason: a lot of thoughts, feelings, emotions … in my “little” head! 

Can we say we are too blessed? If this is the case, I feel so blessed! I started to count all the blessings of God in my life and dear God, how I am grateful!

If I was these following characters and I was asked: “how do you see every day that God gives you?” my answer would be:

Artist: one day timed to a masterpiece.

Prisoner: another day to repent of my sins.

Scientist: another day for experiments.

president: another precious day to be a good leader.

Doctor: countless moments to save lives.

Romantic: another day to give lots of hugs.

A child: another whole day to play.

After all, I can be any of these characters for real, every day that God gives me !

I have toys in my head because I discover that every day is a new day full of opportunities to be a better person!
