There are just certain captions that say to me, 'that's so you' and this is one of them. Temperature turmoil, is this part of being 40? A friend said today 'we're both the type who would sweat in Alaska, huh?' Yes! Last night, a fan was brought by my bed at 1am because I was burning up with the a/c on. I even have my own personal fan at church. On the reverse side, I can break out in goosebumps in a flat second too. This happened the other day, I was freezing with a blanket around me and sitting on the electric blanket that was turned on high. Am I weird or what?
The fervor we have for the Lord can vary just as drastically. Are you comfortable with the setting you have towards Him? Revelation 3;16 ''So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.'' God wants us to be on fire for Him. New believers often have a passionate way they describe the change within them. We shouldn't lose that but cultivate that desire as we mature in our walk with the Lord.
He covers us, like a blanket, with His love and without it we are bare. May we always feel His touch and presence to know He's always there with us.
