If you can't stand the heat...

move out of Tulsa! It was over 100 degrees yesterday and my daily walk with the dog turned into an outdoor sauna experience. It was hard to breath when you were just standing still! You may have heard people say "if you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen". I believe that it was Harry Truman that gets the credit for that one. In other words, don't persist with a task if the pressure of it is too much for you. The implication being that, if you can't cope, you should leave the work to someone who can.

Too often we sign up for things that we probably had no right to be involved in. There are good ideas and there are God ideas. A lifestyle that acknowledges the Lord will pray about how to spend time, money and talent. All we have to do is ask the Lord about the opportunities before we agree to participate. By taking the time to distinguish between the good and the God, you will assure yourself good success. It will never be too hot for you and no one will ever tell you to get out of the kitchen. Try it today. You will have several opportunities to do many things. Ask the Lord which things you should invest yourself, your talents and your money into. Not only will you be able to stand the heat, you will be cooking on all burners!
