STAY COOL 652
Hot weather just does not bring out the best
in some us. It decreases our patience and increases
our temper flare-ups. Sound familiar? Perhaps
that's the way it is, occasionally, in your home
as well as ours.
Perhaps God permits us to have a season of
hot weather to allow us to increase our perception
of our inability to "stay cool" on our own.
And, He also uses this hot humid weather
to persuade us, once again, that indeed, we can do
nothing spiritually important without the Spirit's help.
O Lord, for many of us, summer is the season
we need You most of all. Help us to stay cool
this summer, we pray, in Jesus' name, amen.
