The heavy rains, winds and storms we had over the last few days of last week almost completely trashed my herb garden. The tomatoes which had already been overgrown became too heavy and collapsed with the rain.
While I was cutting them back off the fence so that I could dig them out, I noticed that a lot of the stems had died already and many were thin and lanky and had no strength but they all contributed to the overall weight off the pack.
Had I thinned them out during the growing process there might have been enough strength in the good plants for them to withstand the storm. Storms provide us with a really unique opportunity. That is the opportunity during the clean up to review the past and analyse the mistakes we have made.
If you have been through or are going through a storm right now, ask God to give you the strength to see what you can glean and learn through this painfull experience.
