The Positive Consequence of Scorching Heat

“As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, my God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.” Psalm 42:1

At first, it may be hard to think of anything positive that can result from living in scorching heat. But there is one that came to mind this week, as the temperatures rose into the 90’s.

The scorching summer heat often begs me to keep water on hand lest I suffer the consequences of dehydration. In the same way, the heated troubles of life draw me to thirst for “living water”…. to run to God and draw from his well. He can quench the thirst of a dry and weary soul like no other.

As I drink from that well more and more (as a result of trials), I get to know God more and more, and experience his love in ways I didn’t expect.

Knowing God more is a very good thing. A happy ending to an otherwise sweaty, miserably hot day!

Stay hydrated, dear friends.

Heavenly Father, help me to stay hydrated, from morning to night. Quench my thirst with your loving kindness. Bring relief to my weary soul. Amen.
