I got off my flight with a cramp in my leg, an empty stomach, a bad attitude, and three more hours to go. And the connecting flight was late!
I set down my bags and called home. Denalyn answered. She’s always glad when I call. We made no decisions. We solved no problems. We just talked. And I felt better. When we finished, Denalyn said, “I’m glad you called.” And I hung up happy! I can handle being a pilgrim as long as I can call home whenever I want.
It occurs to me Jesus needed to call home in the middle of the hassles as much as I did. He needed a minute with Someone who would understand. So He chatted with the One He loved; heard the sound of the home He missed.
And He was reminded when all hell breaks loose, all heaven draws near! Maybe you should call home too!
P.S. It is day 13 of our 40 Days of Prayer campaign. Thank you to over 40,000 faithful warriors, praying in one accord for our national election!
