Are You Hot?

Pinned Image

     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.
