On days when I feel dry and empty, I am reminded. To look to the Vine. I cannot muster up strength, love, joy, peace, or any of the things I desire, on my own efforts. My first and primary focus, each day and throughout each day, is to look to the source.
Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches.
Those who remain in Me, and I in them,
will produce much fruit.
For apart from Me, you can do nothing."
The two belong together - the Vine, and the branches. They are to be as one - the Life-giver, and the fruit-bearing branches.
"The life flow of the Vine is in the branches ... "
"I am Love and Joy and Peace and Strength and Power and Healing and Humility and Patience and all else you see in Me your Lord ... You do not make yourselves loving and strong and patient and humble. You live with Me, and then My life accomplishes the miracle-change." (God Calling)
Thank You, loving Lord, for capturing my mind and my heart this morning; let Your love and Joy and Peace and all that You are, flow into and through this branch today.
Soli Deo Gloria
