Charles Warner|Daily TimesWhen we have an emergency and need the police or the fire department or EMS or even all three, we call 911 and help is on its way. As dedicated, compassionate and well-trained as they are, however, there are some troubles that are beyond the power of the police officers, firefighters, and paramedics to make right. When those times come, we should all turn to the first and best 911 emergency responder: God. If we find ourselves beset by troubles that are beyond our ability or that of any other human being to address, then God is the one to turn to. In fact, we should turn to Him not only in times of trouble, but every day of our lives because when we are in regular communication with God and follow His guidance we find ourselves facing fewer troubles than if we tried to go it alone. When troubles do come as they inevitably will, those in regular communication with God will find them less troubling because they know that God is in control and will see them through it. They also know that the troubles they face on Earth are for little more than a season and will one day give way to eternal glory and happiness. So call God, each and every day, it's the best call you will ever make.
