The Emmaus Journal
Can We Talk?
... message from God ...
"I've been trying to get a hold of you lately.
Oh, business as usual you say. Mmm...
What time would be better for me to reach you?
Okay, if you think that will work. I'll call after working hours.
Oh, after dinner perhaps, when you get back from the gym.
Okay. But, not on Fridays, that is the busiest day of the week for you. Too many other people to call. Too many messages to answer.
Oh, yea, business is business. Have to take care of your stock portfolio next Tuesday? Yea ... getting your money in order is a big challenge nowadays.
Sure, I know it does take a lot of time. You think Wednesday would be better?
Oh, really. Going on vacation soon. That's great. Maybe I should call when you get back? That would...
Believe me, I know. There are just so many things you have to take care of. A lot of people depend on you.
I know, I know.
What, your wife. Mmm... That sounds like a problem. Oh, the kids. I can see what you mean. Sure. They do take a lot of time and energy to raise. Tuitions? College? Too much money going out?
So you think Sunday might be a good day?
After church. Okay.
Oh, he wants you to preach. Need any help?
Oh hey, if you already have it planned, that's fine. Yea, a lot of quotes usually does the job.
I know you appreciate my offer, no need to explain.
Been a little tired lately? Not much time for yourself?
The Doctor said what? Your heart. Oh my. Blood pressure medication. Thats...
I see... Too much pressure, you say.
I know, I know...
Not finding much peace or contentment in anything? Oh my.
Oh, I know you're not afraid. Sure you can work it out. Always have. Yes, I know you will.
Yep, you know where to reach me.
No. There's no offense at all.
You just call when you get the chance.
Oh sure, I'll be here. But just in case, at least we had a chance to talk today.
Goodbye for now."
