Today’s thought – I Am the Vine

April 22 - planting 002
Good Morning

John 15:1-5
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

3 Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Open wide every avenue of your being to receive the blessed influences your Divine Husbandman may bring to bear upon you.
Bask in the sunshine of His love.
Drink in of the waters of His goodness.
Keep your face upturned to Him.
You need make no efforts to grow.
But let your efforts instead be all concentrated on this,
that you abide in the Vine.
Hannah Whitall Smith

Abide in Him . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
