You Are The Branches   Leave a comment


Roots are branches sunk deep in earth

Branches are roots that have been given birth




You are the branches. Without me you can do nothing. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.   

John 15

What a magnificent promise —

When we are grafted into God’s family through His son Christ Jesus, what we think, becomes a spoken word … and sometimes these words are spontaneous prayers. Our actions, now inspired, are to walk a path of love — not just for self, but in consideration of others –

That’s a win-win.

But for those days when my thoughts…and mouth…and actions seem so out of line…There is grace –

I’ll always fall short, but God’s love will forever be there – not to admonish, but to forgive – To set my foot upon a new path, watching over each footstep that is apt to stumble again – not to make me wrong, but to take me to a place where I may learn something new, or to see what I had not seen before – Each time with renewed commitment to share the lessons, and the love.







You are the Branches
