Welcome to the world’s greatest day of the week… "Weleful Wednesday". I remember the ole saying, “There’s no place like home”… Today, in 2018, we have a new saying, “There’s no place like F.G.I. - Faith’s Garden of INspiration”
I don’t know about anywhere else but here in southern California we are experiencing some record breaking days of heat. I mean there is absolutely no relief anywhere. So, you know me… I had to dig something positive out of this experience. Have you ever really taken a moment to consider the benefits of heat? I mean honestly, how often do you sit back and truly admire the power of heat, the beauty of heat, and the purpose of heat? Now, please do not be misled I am no fan of summer or days over 75 degrees at all however there is a great level of appreciation for the heat all throughout year and the benefits we reap.
Let’s take a moment to relish in the Power of Heat…
Did you know that without heat… popcorn kernels would not pop, surgical tools would not be properly cleaned, your body could not warm someone up when you hugged them, the Jacuzzi would not feel as relaxing and peaceful as it does, the desert would not exist and believe it or not there are certain plant and animal life that need the desert to survive. And let’s not forget that the Lord went before the children of Israel by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel (Exodus 13 v 21).
Let’s take a moment to marinate in the Beauty of Heat…
Think about it without heat from the fire logs would not burn in the fireplace during the brisk of winter, the wide clay painted object would not become the beautiful ceramic “I Love Lucy” Mug, our bodies would not experience the natural positive mood enhancer due to increased levels of serotonin which improves our mood and boosts our energy, there would be less opportunities to be outdoors playing with the children, walking the dog, or riding our bikes along the coast and there would not be any Summer Olympics. Now, on the other hand, with the passionate Beauty of Heat between a man and a woman the conception of a precious child can be achieved. And let’s not forget about Moses and the burning bush (Exodus 3 v 1-12) – the Supernatural Divine Beauty of Heat.
And by all means let’s take a moment to appreciate the Purpose of Heat… The snow must melt, iron and steel must be melted in order to create crucial pieces to the structure of our beautiful high rise buildings, for exotic bikes, and the exquisite jewels we wear on our fingers, around our necks, and in our ears must be shaped and molded by heat. We also tend to eat a little healthier and a little lighter – opting for more veggies, salads, fruits - due to the heat. And Yes… even in the word of God he tells us in book of Isaiah 49 v 10 – They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
Now listen…. The next time you even begin to complain about the heat… take a moment to remember there is a standing ovation in the atmosphere for the power of heat, the beauty of heat, and the purpose of heat.
