I always liked gardens, so I decided to make a go of it. What started out as a small garden overtook me. Nearly 250 feet long and 150 feet wide. (How crazy was that?) I bought books from a company called Rodale at the time. Bought all the seeds in the store and became a regular at Agway Farm Supply. I ordered a dump truck load of cow manure and went to work. Suffice to say I had “EVERYTHING!” At least a dozen different kinds of tomatoes, hot to “cold” peppers, kohlrabi, bok-choy and more. I invested in a special hoe and became a “farmer“.
Well, our store soon could not keep up with the amount of produce coming forth. So, I loaded up the dump bed of the Jeep and headed to farmers markets and restaurants. You name it and I had it. Even a “hot” black radish!
I drove my fiancee and family crazy. Even my future father-in-law, a green thumb man would walk the rows in amazement.
I think God is a lot like that. I think if you will give Him the space, he will bring the “implements” of His work and the seeds of His goodness and “grow” a garden of abundance in your life.
