Never Being Put On Hold
U. S. News and World Report has proclaimed Massachusetts to be the best state in which to live because of health care, infrastructure, etc. Apparently the people at U. S. News and World Report have never tried to contact the Massachusetts Registration of Motor Vehicles. I was put on hold an hour ago and this very moment while I am writing I am listening over and over again to the same insipid music. In fairness I have to say when I called the machine warned me my wait time would be over an hour. If we are such a great state can’t we hire a few more employees? Or, at least, how about getting a bigger musical play list when put on hold?
We are so blessed not to be put on hold when we need to talk to God. If His system was comparable to the RMV and calls were coming in from all over the universe we could have a century or so wait time! At least the music would be heavenly.
There are several promises in the Psalms regarding God’s listening ear and His response. Psalm 91:15 is an example. “He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honor him.” Psalm 139 is fabulous. Please savor these words. “If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.” We get instant response time because He is always with us. How grand! (The final wait time with the RMV was 2 hours and 24 minutes.)
