“EveryDrop” because of One

This may not sound very “spiritual” but I really don’t like the “hold” time and accompanying music that corporations use to put me at bay. You know what I mean? You call a company (and the Lord knows I have called more companies this year than any American should have to call) to get some answers, for me this year,  it has been the church mortgage company, health insurance company and most recently the company that provides a filter for the church refrigerator water/ice dispenser. Here is the deal, our Kenmore refrigerator is really made by Whirlpool who has changed the replacement filter code with a new code-WF31583C, have I lost you in the weeds yet? Do you know how much time Americans like this impatient preacher spends waiting for the service personal to “check on that” while we are placed on hold? 13 hours! That’s right, according to Time Magazine writer, Brad Tuttle, January 24, 2013 (http://business.time.com/) you and I spend 13 hours on hold each year. What are you doing for those thirteeeeeeeen hours? I have, I admit, put my phone on mute and worked on other projects, they call it “multi-tasking”, seems like it is constructive and very satisfying to see something get done. However, someone said that tendency is multiple personality disorder and is really called (DID) Dissociative Identity Disorder as of 1994, (can you take an aspirin for that, are there groupies, T-shirts)!? I have discovered that there are “guides” really angels that you connect with say 1 out of 10 phone calls, and they are a blessing. These angels can listen to the issue, calculate your needs and “Voila” (French, “Look Here”) the problem is solved. The thought came to me, what if I could be the one of ten, the angel for someone? Would I be willing to help solve someone’s problem, spend the time listening to them explain the apparent  need for the replacement filter or other matters really important that only One can work through me? You have the example in the Holy Spirit, your Intercessor, the One,  He is always helping. Romans 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.” Good news I have a filter being shipped to me, it is item EDR1RXD2 named “EveryDrop” and all because of One.
