"Who Ya Gonna Call?"

What would you say if I started singing: "If there's something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call?" Right. You'd shout "Ghostbusters!" You can't help yourself! "If it's somethin' weird an' it don't look good, who ya gonna call?" Yeah. You are probably hearing the theme music in your head and jammin' out right now aren't ya? It's's playin' in my head too!

Ok, so what does "Ghostbusters" have to do with anything and why on earth would I bring it up? Well, it's because there are a lot of times where I feel like something is strange or off (remember THIS incident lol?). I feel like something is weird; whether around me or just inside of me. You can't explain it. You don't know what it is, but you just feel like something isn't normal. You're wondering, "What is it? What do I do?!" You wonder who you can turn to or call on. Assuming it's not 911 emergency grade, maybe you call a friend or family member to talk to (been there, done that). Though, the very first person we should be calling on is Jesus. He is our first line of defense against anything strange, weird, or off-putting. No matter what is going on or how we are feeling, He is right there to battle and defeat it for us. All we have to do is speak His Name!

That simple fact is definitely something I have to remind myself of more often. This week, especially, was a time where I needed to remember that Jesus needs to be first in the chain of command. Sure, it's ok to talk to my best friend, boyfriend, and others that care about me, but no one knows me or cares about me like Jesus does! All I have to do is go D.E.A.P. (drop everything and pray). I'm not sure what brought that to my mind, but when I thought of that this past week, I googled it to see if maybe that concept/acronym was already floating around out there. Apparently, it is (google it for yourself). And, the one thing that I could find on it was this video from YouTube where a lady describes how life-changing it is to just drop everything and pray. It warmed my heart to watch it. 

So, "who ya gonna call" my friends? The next time you're struggling with something, who are you going to turn to? When you're hurting, feeling down, or life just doesn't feel quite right, just call on Jesus. He will calm every storm, defeat every demon, and bring peace to your heart. Just go D.E.A.P.!

Grace and peace to you, my friends! I hope you have a blessed week! Remember, Jesus is always with you! He's just waiting for you to call on Him! Whether it's big or small, He is there for whatever personal emergency you have. Just like shouting "Ghostbusters!" is the irresistible response and answer in that song, so should Jesus be in our lives! I promise you, He is the BEST and QUICKEST first responder ever! He's always on call! Be infused! God bless you!
