Who Ya Gonna Call?

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I were relaxing on the couch when we heard Connor from Jaden and Isaac's room. "Daddy, HELP!" were the only two words Connor said, but he knew they would get fast results. As soon as Tommy heard Connor's summon, he got off of the couch and headed to find him. He quickly located Connor on top of a set of plastic storage drawers. Connor had climbed up there but knew he couldn't get down without falling. There was only one thing to do: call daddy for help and wait for him to get there. He was confident that his request would be answered. He knew when he asked his daddy for help that his daddy wasn't going to let him fall.

So many times when we have a problem or go through a trial, or when we "climb into something" we can't get out of on our own, we run to the phone or email in search of someone who can help us. We look for someone "with skin on" to pat us on the back and assure us that everything will be okay. The truth is though that only God, our Maker and our ABBA FATHER, has the answers for all of our life's drama. He is the only one who knows the beginning from the end and is working all things together for our good.

At the age of two Connor knew who to call to rescue him from his mischief. He didn't ask his brothers or sister. He went straight to the top: his daddy! He knew that even though his brothers and sister love him, in their arms he could fall. But he trusted his daddy and knew that he would be safe in his arms.

Do you trust God enough to know you are safe in His arms too? The next time you find yourself in trouble, who are you gonna call?

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13

"Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name..." Psalm 91:14


  1. Too often we seek the opinions of family and friends instead of turning to the Lord for help in time of need, knowing that HE alone can deliver us.

    If we would only remember to go to Him first when every situation arises.

  2. Why would we seek out those that we know cannot keep us from falling or when we do, cannot put us back together again? We know that Christ is the ONE AND ONLY that has our lives in HIS hands and is in control of ALL things. I pray that we all will be quicker to call on "DADDY!" He already knows the trouble we face so He knows exactly how to handle it.
