God's Megaphone....

My A/C decided this weekend would be an appropriate time to go on strike. 
In other news, it was hotter than the south side of the sun this weekend.

I was quickly reminded that the temperature of the air effects everything.
Quickly after that, I was reminded that my temperature effects others. 
As quickly as the temperature did my crankiness.

Neither adjusted well.
The air was also heavy in our community this past week and weekend.... 
Several unexpected funerals....miscarriages...jet ski accidents....blow outs... 
There was a negative wet blanket in the social media air. 

"Pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, 
speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: 
it is His Megaphone to rouse a deaf world"  -CS Lewis

As someone that once used a megaphone, 
(in a Mule head nonetheless, proving the story of Balaam to be valid)
it's main purpose is to be heard and to engage a response. 

There is no avoiding it. 
Our response to God's Megaphone...should be covered in trust and love.

Love seems to be God's freon. 
Without it, we are just blowing hot air. 
And when it's already 111 in shade- that's not helpful to anyone. 

God feels your pain and mine......
God is good.
God is faithful.
God is with us.

God, Thank You for Your Very Presence among each of us.

In His Dust,
