Heat of the moment - Dr. Joe - 09.28.18

Dr. Joe Hooper. Spiritual Director

You know that phrase, in the heat of the moment? In the heat of the moment, we lose our tempers, or we say things that we don’t want to say or we do things we don’t want to do. Have you ever wondered what would happen if we turned off the heat? What if we brought up that boil down to at this slight little simmer? You’d think we would have gone off the way we’ve gone off or did the things we did? Maybe that’s the lesson to learn.

Take the heat off of it, take the pressure off, take the emotional energy off of it and start looking at things from a different perspective. When we do that, will allow us to reduce the heat and also reduce the effects of heat, which sometimes can burn us. Let’s not get burned today. Let’s reduce the heat and understand, that maybe,  just maybe it’s time to reduce the heat. Take the heat off so we’re not doing things in the heat of the moment. Have a great, absolutely great Friday. We’ll talk to you tomorrow.
