Lost Connection? Come Home

A couple of months ago I was sitting in a local blood draw lab awaiting my turn for the annual needle poke. As I sat there, I noticed that six out of eight people in the waiting area had their faces buried in their phones. The other two, me one of the two, sat there as if we were technologically behind the times. I have to admit I am still behind the times technologically. I freak out when a window pops up on my phone letting me know the website can’t be trusted. I’m driving, so why is this even happening? I get a little anxious.

The room was silent except for the random call bellowing from the back to enter the room of temporary pain. One by one their social world was interrupted. One by one, they disconnected their social connection and disappeared only to walk out the door minutes later.

It got me thinking about something.

Their focus was so intent on those little screens and with the call of another their connection was severed.

God doesn’t break His connection with us when we get a call or get called away. We can have that constant connection with Him. We need not disconnect or shut down our electronics for the night, while at work, or while we’re driving. We can have that constant connection with our Heavenly Father twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The connection is free. There is no waiting, no contracts, and no middle-of-the-night updates.

Stay connected to the Father and you won’t have to worry about lost connections or dropped calls.

It reminds me of a song titled, ‘Softly and Tenderly.’ Check it out.

“Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
See on the portal he’s waiting and watching
Watching for you and for me.
Come home, come home
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling, oh sinner, come home.
(Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading)
Pleading for you and for me
(Why should we linger and heed not his calling)
Calling for you and for me.
Come home, come home
Ye who are weary come home
Earnestly, tenderly Jesus is calling
Calling, oh sinner, come home…”

Come home sinner, time is short. Come home.

It’s not too late to connect with the Lord. He is waiting and watching.
