Zoom is quickly becoming a household word. Who would have thought that a month ago? I know I use it all day these days. I’m setting up live online Zoom Art lessons weekly joining all the other teachers transitioning to Distance Learning. Zooming, if that’s a verb, has also become a vehicle for families or groups of people to connect. To set up a Zoom meeting, I pick a date and time that works with the big schedule then I set the times on Zoom and then I invite my participants and give them the meeting ID number as well as the password. Then the participants have to be sure to join my meeting at the right time entering the right meeting number and password. If I ever go over the time I’ve set up for the meeting to end, the screen goes blank and we’re all disconnected. And then there’s the question of whether the internet is going to be working…
I was thinking about that and I thought in contrast about how God is always ready to “zoom” with us without having to set up a meeting and He will listen as long as we want. Jeremiah 33:3 says “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”. What a remarkable promise God gives us that He is always there for us. And not only that but He longs to hear what’s on our minds and hearts.
O Lord, Thank you for today and thank you for always being there for us. Help us to call out to you and tell you what’s on our hearts today. Thank you for Your promise that You always hear us and You love us. Open our eyes to see Your work in our world around us.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
