A very unexpected and annoying thing happened this morning. Our phone number was spoofed and used to make robocalls all around the country. Many of those people called, tried to call us back. Since there is nothing the phone company can do, we decided to stop answering the calls. We created a new voice mail message:
"Some gooberhead decided to use our number to spoof and make robocalls. Our apologies if you were called by our number. Have a wonderful day!"
While the message is a little funny and sarcastic, I felt prompted to use a better choice of words. A few moments after praying about it, I knew there was a better choice of words...HIS.
This is our new voicemail message:
"Our number was spoofed and used to make robocalls today. Our sincerest apologies; however, please know you are being prayed for, specifically, Ephesians 3:16-21. Have a wonderful day!"
And while it's still annoying to have the phone constantly ringing today, at least now it's a new reminder to pray. If you're reading this, I've prayed these verses over you, too. Let's all find a way to make the little annoyances of life less annoying by turning the focus onto Him.
Make today for His Glory.
