Two Cents Tuesday Challenge: “Heat”

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
~ Jeremiah 17:7-8 ~

Hello friends (smile) I am starting to love these Two Cents Tuesday Challenges. (cheesy smile) It’s fun to be creative and show our vision. Whether positive or negative, heat can affect everything; depending on your perspective. (smile)

Having faith, to trust God, in all things, will produce more spiritual fruit and growth–either positively or negatively. Depending on that mountain, remember, the one, I like to go around. (gritted teeth smile)

It’s truly a beautiful thing to have spiritual fruit so deep within that when the heat from fiery trials come, have the faith to walk right through them. (smile)

Thank God for His mercy and His grace. I am looking forward to that day when heat temperatures won’t bother me. Wahoo, faith!

My pros and cons of heat:

Pros of heat:
Great in the winter.
Great for cooking or warming food (not that I know anything about cooking; but I can warm in the microwave) (shock face)
Great for hot water showers.

Cons of heat:
Humidity can mess up the hair. Ugh
Tempers can get short in extreme heat.
Some fabrics don’t breathe well in the heat.
Can’t leave windows in car open, critters can get in the car.
Sunburn.

For you reading pleasure, some scriptures on heat:

Heat, hot

Figurative of:
God’s wrath – Deuteronomy 9:19
Man’s anger – Deuteronomy 19:6
Determination – Genesis 31:36
Zeal – Psalm 39:3
Persecution – Matthew 13:6, 21
Heavy toll – Matthew 20:12
Real Faith – Revelation 3:15

Have a blessed day and stay cool! (smile) Feel free to add your pros and cons of heat. (smile)

Great to have so many varied takes on heat in one entry – thank you! I wonder which is worse for affecting temperatures – heat or cold?
