There is this lie that says if we trust God enough, if we wait long enough for His timing, that what we dream of and hope for will happen. If we try to do it ourselves then we are going against God and His plans.
Each summer I have anticipated a larger return, only to wonder why my plants weren’t producing. Oh sure, we’d get a cup or two total, but with the amount of plants we had I thought for sure we should be getting more!
