Hope Finds the Right Person

Weeping and gnashing of teeth. Wasted hours of precious time. A plea to God, “Help me fix this.”

It was a snafu with my supplemental insurance. When I switched in February, someone did not complete the job. I was getting letters from the old insurance which I had cancelled months ago.

So I called my insurance broker, and spoke to two people who both said, “You need to call Medicare.” They gave me the number to contact the right person.

The representative at Medicare told me I had called the wrong department. They would connect me to another area. Instead, they hung up.

So I went online and filled out the chat box. Wrote numerous explanations to a person who chatted back, “We can’t help you. Call your former supplemental insurance.”

At that point, I was using a few of the cleaner swear words.

After a lunch with some fortifying protein, a bite of chocolate and a quickie prayer, I once again called my supplemental insurance. This time, I reached just the right person — a woman who knew exactly what to do.

“I’m fixing this right now, ma’am. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.”

Relief was instantaneous. All I had to do was find the right person.

It is the searches in life that often bring discouragement. The rabbit trails. The run arounds. The hang ups.

But Hope survives when we find:

  • The right person willing to invest time and build a friendship
  • The traveling buddy who drives us to unusual thrift stores for treasure hunts
  • The mechanic who knows how to fix the current problem without inventing new ones
  • The Savior who graces us with peace [Hint: His name is Jesus and his contact number is John 3:16].

Finding the right person solves a host of problems we cannot resolve on our own. But the search requires patience and an abundant helping of Hope.

  1. Wow! How I can relate! We indeed need patience. Sometimes it seems as if we won’t even find a live person. So glad you managed to locate the right one for your needs!

  3. Rebecca,

    I love this post! Everyone can relate to situations that require patience, waiting and trying again. However, He…our Lord and Savior…is the only One who is truly worth seeking with our whole heart.

  4.  One of the sweetest gestures that one can show – is saying “Thank You” to anyone that he or she may feel grateful to. Saying thank you doesn’t cost anything but it surely makes everyone notice your best behavior and helps you to create a great impression. In spite of how small or big the help or favor you have got, expressing your gratitude is always important! Whenever someone does something positive for you; without hesitation, say thank you to make sure you appreciate the gesture. Here are some graceful choices for you to thank your well-wishers and make them aware of the fact that you appreciate them and you care about them!
