Wonderful analogy.
Good devotional thoughts. Dividing this into more paragraphs would make it easier to read. Good job.

You did something new with a familiar analogy. It could be tightened a bit and your average sentence length was a bit long (current conventional wisdom says it should be in the 23-25 word range. I thought the prayer was a good way to end--very powerful.
In a book I am reading, one of the characters says something of gardening. She tells the MC you know a tomato is ripe when it falls easily into your hand at the slightest tug. It takes patience and wisdom. Your insightful devotional shows this well.
Great analogy. I like this a lot.

Highly effective metaphor for the power of waiting for God's time.

I appreciated how your patient development of the thought was in keeping with the lesson.

Well done.
