HELLO, WHO’S SPEAKING
A few years ago, having moved away from a doctor’s practice where i had worked for a while, i decided to give the staff a quick shout out.
Half way through dialing the number , i changed my mind, i wanted to play a prank on them.
The phone rang for a while. The receptionist picked it up and introduced herself , asking HOW CAN I HELP.
I replied…how can you help. Well i hope you can do.
I am just sick and tired of how incompetent things are at your surgery. The phone rings so many times before it gets picked up, you wait several weeks to see a doctor, you see the doctor and they dont even spend enough time before they get you out of their room.
I repeated what an average client would find unacceptable. She listened for a while and was trying really hard to talk to me calmly and manage the situation. I pushed my luck a bit more. I told her that i was so appalled and i wanted to make a complaint. I asked for her to put me through to the manager. She did.
Once the manager picked the phone, once i said the first two sentences, she replied…DR JEFFREYS, GET OFF MY PHONE, RIGHT NOW!
My cover blown, the receptionist wished she could reach her hand to my face over the phone . She couldnt believe that I had tricked her. She thought she knew me, but not that much. The person who knew me didnt take long before blowing my cover.
Oh how sweet when you can recognise who is on the other end of the phone, most especially when you are waitkng for a crucial information from them.
As Christians, life can be so busy and stressful. We lose toucn and dont have time to catch up. The voice that should have been second nature to us sound a bit different. We are not sure anymore, because we have not spoken for a long while. This is even more so when we are not expectingthe call!!!!!!
Recognising God’s voice is easy when you dont leave a long break in between communication with Him.
When your chats are few and far between, every voice will sound like His and His voice will sound so strange. In fact, when He is speaking, you will be binding the devil.
After i had an ear-bashing from my receptionist friend, i knew i could not play that prank on them again. I just hope that a real client did not get DR JEFFREYS, we know you are joking.
Dont stay too long without a voice call….texts are good, whatsapp chats are fine, so are bb messages……you spend your credit just to hear the voice of those you truly cherish. Its just different.
The bible says that my sheep knows my voice. The voice of a stranger they will not follow. When you are familiar with the voice, its easier to trust what the voice is saying.
Do you need to make a voice call?
