One Call Away

Updated: Jul 11, 2023

The other day, an old friend of mine called me.

And she was in shock.

She could not believe what had just happened to her.

Her hands shook as she wiped the tears from her eyes, and grabbed the phone from its hook on the wall.

With trembling fingers, she dialed my number. A number she hadn’t called in many years.

“Please pick up,” she murmured.

She was desperate for an answer.

‘Hello?” I ask, static coming from the other end of the line.

“Oh, thank goodness!” she exclaims, “I thought you wouldn’t answer. I thought I had done too much for you to even care anymore. But I need to talk to you. I still can’t believe what has happened. I just don't know what I’m gonna do.”

And she began to pour out her heart to me.

Through her tears, she told me her heartache, all her troubles and trials.

She had been struggling for many years with drugs and alcohol abuse.

So much so, that she began to believe that no one would love her anymore.


When you are struggling, who do call?

Who do you run to?

Who is your shelter? Your refuge?

Is it Jesus?

When life gets real and you have no idea what to do or who to call, do you turn to Jesus?

Do you tell him all your worries and needs?

It’s important that we pray.

But Prayer shouldn’t be a habit or a chore.

It should be a daily talk with a personal friend.

Not only a random phone call when things get rough or a little chat when you feel like it.

We all need God just as much on the good days as well as on the bad.

We should thank him. For everything.

For loving us even when we fail him.

And for always being one call away.


So, if you are struggling today, give God a ring.

He’s always listening.


Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Jeremiah 33 : 3
