You know what I realized about the old phones? They didn’t have speed dial. It took much longer to “reach out and touch someone” back then. Today, I buck this as “lame,” or “inconvenient.” In actuality, was it better? By the time I dialed the 10 digits and got connected, I was forced to chill a little before the other end picked up. The rotary phone required patience & thought & maybe in some cases, prayer (not bad attributes). When I can’t hear God, do you think it’s cause I am expecting cell-phone service out of Him? Do you think God’s still running the universe the nostalgic way? the original way? That maybe He spins the globe on a less-urgent, more-graceful pace? And that it’s not that He can’t respond to me, it’s just that He’s waiting on the other end of a rotary phone, while I’m trying to speed-dial Him on a cell?
