Prayer Journal: Day 125

Day 125

I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. – John 15:1-2

God gives us the opportunity to start new.

I am not much of a gardener, but my husband “has a green thumb”. With his help, I replaced the apple tree seedling that died after I had forgotten to water it during my COVID-19 recovery. Now, with love, water, and a team effort, our new apple tree seedling is thriving. 

Our Lord is good at gardening, in that He nurtures us and helps us to grow.

Sometimes the pruning process can be difficult for us when we resist letting go of thoughts that stunt us from growing. Our Lord knows better. He has the recipe for a fruitful life for us. Amen.
