I LOVE avocados! When I look out my back door and see avocados galore hanging in my tree, I can't help but think of Psalm 37:4-5, "Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass."
You see, when we were looking for a house in Nakuru, I thought to pray for a desire of my heart. It was definitely not a requirement for the house we would move into, but I told the Lord it would be nice to have an avocado tree in my yard.
After another house possibility fell through, God made it clear that this big, beautiful house was the house He had for us. And then a couple of days after we moved in, I realized that that tree in my back yard was an avocado tree!
Then I really knew that this was MY house! God did that just for me. Needless to say, I am enjoying avocados whenever I want, and they taste SO good. "Thank You, Lord." He daily loadeth me with benefits.
