You can't ingore the alarm!

It's the call you DO NOT want to get. 2:30 in the morning, this wide awake voice is on the other end of your phone, talking just a little bit too loud. It seems the Fire Alarm has gone off at the radio station...two things happen immediately...one, you start to think about what could be on fire inside the radio station and two, you start praying it's a false alarm. To be totally truthful...the first call was at 11 last night and Justin Wade, our Music Director heeded the call. All I had to do was lay in bed and wait on him to call and tell me what was up. It was a false alarm. A faulty detector. We sighed relief, said hallelujah and went back to sleep. It was the second call at 2:30 that got me out of bed. It was my turn to trek to the station and meet the East Ridge Fire Department. Thankfully, another false alarm. But it made me think....How many times does God sound an alarm for us and we ignore it? The temptation to turn off the phone, pretend I didn't get the call and go back to sleep was pretty strong at 2:30. But how often do we do God that way? When we don't like the alarm, do we just turn it off? The Holy Spirit sounds those alarms for our own protection. Next time it happens to you....don't ignore the alarm!

And a quick PS: Thanks to the awesome East Ridge Fire and Police. I could see the exhaustion in their faces last night. They've been working themselves to death since the flooding earlier in the week. I appreciate them coming out to check on us. Twice. Even if it was a false alarm!
