I’m in Fort Worth, TX. Yesterday I arrived without any issues, rented my car and found the hotel without making any u-turns. That is a first for me! Once I got unpacked I then found the church so I can get there this morning. As I began to journal earlier this morning I was about to outline for Jesus all of the expectations I hoped to learn today. However, as I was starting to write He nicely informed me to instead, listen well and learn all that He had in mind for me to learn today. Doesn’t that sound just like a nice Leader? He already knows just what He wants me to learn here and I don’t have to fret about completing my list, He wants me focused on His List. OK, I have this much down for today.
As I began my Bible reading, it was John 15. Christ is telling the disciples in verse 5, “I am the sprouting vine and you’re my branches. As you live in union with me as your source, fruitfulness will stream from within you–but when you live separated from me you are powerless.”
Jesus has done a good deal of pruning in my life getting me to a place of BELIEF seeing Him as the One to believe. I’ve needed to let go of so many old lies seeing me in my old self instead of BELIEVING in the new creation God has made me to be. I humbly thank Him for this new, remarkable opportunity to serve Him.
