I received a call last week from a man called a re-adjuster. He
apologized that my home owner's insurance had not followed up on my
claim for storm damage that occurred back in April/May/June. He
proceeded to explain that he was summoned to correct mistakes made by
the insurance company.
I've thought a lot about what he said he
does -being a Re-adjuster. It all seems so relevant as these thoughts
race through my mind. Sometimes, we need a re-adjuster to intervene in
our lives. When we get so deep into a situation or circumstance, we
can't objectively make the best decisions, queue the re-adjuster.
Maybe we try to stand back, view everything from another perspective
& make some personal adjustments. But, we can't always do everything
independently in life.
It's just so very hard to accept help
sometimes. That's my downfall. It's not pride, I have very little of
that. I just want to help others, not be helped by them. I'm certainly
not above help, I just don't know how to act when it is offered to me.
you ever created something and asked someone for their opinion of it?
It could be writing, composition, drawing, painting, molding, pottery,
etc. We do this with our life circumstances as well. When we create a
bad situation for ourselves (such as depression, a bad decision, or
something that blew up), at some point, we have to ask for an outside
opinion after evaluating ourselves and attempting to adjust on our own.
Queue the re-adjuster!
God the Father, his son Jesus, & the
Holy Spirit comforts us through Faith by Grace. And... they've been
known to use other sources to reach us as well:
A song on the radio
A pet that keeps up with our footsteps
A passerby that engages us in a quick conversation that leaves a smile on our face
A child's touch when we least expect it
That phone call comes through, just before we give up
Or the sky smiles down on us with a radiant beam, rainbow, or sunrise.
Sometimes it takes a re-adjuster to make us wake up, listen, and come back to this life.
