Telephone-itis

When I telephone my kids, they probably wonder what’s wrong. That’s because I rarely telephone anyone. I love hearing from them though. I can enjoy hours on the phone with any of my kids. It’s not that we don’t communicate; I communicate with them daily through text and email messages. I often pray before I write, asking God’s Spirit to flow in encouraging and reassuring ways. One day, when I was praying, came these thoughts: There are people you need to call. The Holy Spirit flows through the telephone as well as through your writing. Whoa, scary! Was God expecting me to be a part of some telephone calling service? (I did call three people right away who I knew he meant for me to call.) No, God let me know later, but at times you need to call people. An email, text, even a sympathy card, is not enough. Thank you, Lord.
