...can understand the pain others are going through
...can know how to help when I can't
...can be the Rock to lean on
...can be the lap I climb up into
...can be the one who 'hears' my cry
...can know the answer when I'm all out of answers
Psalm 34: 7-8 The angel of the Lord encamps 'round about them that fear Him and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!
I am a receptionist and answer phone calls coming into our main switchboard. I work at a company within the mortgage industry. At times I get overwhelmed by the 'cry' I hear within people's voices for help with their mortgage - they need someone to listen to them, to hear what their need is so they do not loose their homes. It seems they are at the end of their rope.
What is a little 'o receptionist to do?
A little 'o receptionist who knows - only You, Lord have the answers!
All I can do is offer them my ears to hear, my voice to soothe, point them in the direction that should help, and pray. Pray that the Lord, who answers all calls for help, would help get them to where they need to go. And as I release their phone call, I release them to You...
...only You, Lord.
