A geyser is a big jet of hot water and steam that erupts or gushes powerfully from a water reservoir or from inside the earth.
It happens when water inside the earth comes into contact with magma (molten rocks inside the earth) that is very hot.
The word «geyser» comes from the name of an Icelandic thermal hot spring called «Geysir,» which means «the gusher.»
At Yellowstone National Park, in the United States, there is a geyser called Old Faithful, one of the most famous natural gushers in the park. There are approximately one thousand geysers in our planet and most of them are located in Yellowstone.
The Old Faithful geyser spews a jet of steam that reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit and can go up about 150 feet in the air.
And if it’s very cold, below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, in a matter of seconds, the steam turns into snow. This amazing sight in nature normally happens about 20 times a day and lasts between 1.5 and 5 minutes each time.
Have you ever behaved like a geyser? Do you explode or get angry easily? How angry can you get? How long does your anger last?
The Bible counsels you not to get angry because it makes things worse.
Being angry leads us to feel sad and furious, and Jesus wants us to be happy.
In your Prayer Journal, ask Jesus to help you control your anger—and that if you get angry, it’s only for a short time
