The Adventure of Being On Call
Being "On Call" is perhaps a good microcosm of life in general. We have our cycles of life - certain things we expect, certain things we do with regularity. Then, out of nowhere, something unexpected hits us - surprises us - showing us the vulnerability of our position.
We never know whom we might meet. We never know what's going to happen to us. We expect that if we watch our weight, avoid risky behaviours, love our families, and keep up a strong personal piety that nothing will happen to us.
There are no guarantees.
Yet throughout it all God is still at work. God is perpetually present - right with us. I believe that more now than I ever did.
Come quickly, Lord Jesus, come quickly.
"Finish, then, thy new creation, pure and spotless let us be; let us see thy great salvation perfectly restored in thee. Changed from glory into glory, 'til in heaven we take our place, 'til we cast our crowns before thee, lost in wonder, love and praise." (Charles Wesley)
