God has been speaking to me (and I think all of us!) about waiting and journeys! This the latest thing he has shown me.
This is my first home grown strawberry of the year! I noticed it like this 2 days ago. Not quite ready…..
I was desperate to pick it but I was sure that it would be nicer if I just waited. I was tempted to water and feed the plant but it didn’t need anything, apart from sunshine. I kept peeking at it and even (I know it’s crazy!) prayed for a sunny day!!!!
Then 2 days later, at tea time:
It was ready!!! It was the most delicious strawberry that I have ever tasted. Because I waited it was perfectly ripe and sweet. But the real change was in me!!! I was so thankful for it! I gave the glory to God not me. My heart and my tongue and my tummy were ready to receive that juicy strawberry! Now it was a very good strawberry, but I honestly experienced it as the best strawberry ever created!!
What is God preparing your heart for in this time of world-wide waiting?
Ask him and anticipate it in prayer and the good things which come will be even more luscious, and your heart will soften and sweeten!
