Phone Calls at Night

No one appreciates a telephone call in the middle of the
night.It usually is not a message you
really want to receive.
It was late and my husband and I were asleep when the phone
that sits next to me on my nightstand began to ring.
Trying not to awaken my tired husband, I picked the phone up
on the first ring.
A soft male voice said, “Mom can you come get me?I am drunk.”
Our son was of high school age, and my first thought was
that he had quietly left the house and gotten himself into some kind of
I was wide awake by now, so I answered, “Certainly I will
come get you, just tell me where you are.”
The voice on the other end hesitated, and must have suddenly

Relieved that it was not my son, but feeling truly sorry for
an unknown teenager, if this was a legitimate need and not a prank call.
In those days, we did not have caller ID or reverse call
back so I will never know the true circumstances behind that call.
When prayers go up to heaven from all over the world
requesting help, comfort, direction, or perhaps sincere worship and praise, God
is able to shuffle them all and identify each and every caller and carefully
begin to answer each request.
He doesn’t need to ask “Where are you so I can come help
you?”He knows all about us even to the
very number of hairs on our head.
God does not need caller ID on his telephone to heaven for
he identifies you immediately.
Knowing that God takes a personal interest in us brings
great security, comfort and peace.
Psalms 50:15Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will
deliver you, and you will glorify me.
