The severe spring storm ripped through the gully and hail sliced through the tops of many of our banana trees. Some were already flowering with the promise of fruit to follow.
For a few days it looked a mess!
David cleanly pruned by a clean cut what he could reach of the destroyed canopy. He was astonished to find, in a matter of hours, this new shoot appeared. It may not produce bananas but in its restoration brings hope. It is firmly positioned in a flow of ‘life-giving’ water. Possibilities are inexhaustible.
This is a beautiful reflection of the Christ-life. Being pruned by God the Master Gardener often means we can then produce new life, if lived for Him, and ever watered by the life-giving water from the RIVER of GOD in His Holy Spirit.
Thank God we have a SAVIOUR. We are a child of a living God. Journeying with Him we know the TRUTH that if we did not sometimes taste adversity, the full JOY of life would not be so welcomed.
Blessings! Love! Peace! to you.
