It is hard to imagine that last year we survived without using our air conditioning because this year we have used it a lot, but at the same time I know I could do without it, so it isn’t that big of a deal to me. I always find humor in people who complain in the winter that it is too cold and that they can’t wait for summer to come but when summer comes they think it is too hot and whine about the heat. We all tend to feel drawn to comfortable weather AND lives, but are we meant to be comfortable all the time?
I think about the times that I have had hard times and how anxious I was or how upset I was. I think about the times where I have felt happy and at peace, and usually it was due to my own ignorance. There are people living in the heat without the ability to cool off in water or air conditioning at all. I try to think about how tough they have it and realize that they are actually blessed to get through it and see that it is just the way life is, so they endure. We are going to have hard times and need to face them and trust that God will get us through them. As we trust in Him, He always provides and comes through, knowing what we need. I like depending on Him when I don’t know what to do or when I feel a need to complain about things that are not worth complaining about at all.
