The Vine

I've been thinking alot about a verse in John 15:5

"I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

Do you ever feel like your Christian journey is wearing you out? Recently, I've felt like it would be nice to just take a break. There are people and circumstances that have made me wonder is anyone real? What in the world are we trying to accomplish anyway? In the last week God spoke to me about my heart and has lovingly shown me that watching others, or living in my strength is useless. On the other hand, He wants me to be a branch that draws from the supernatural life giving source of Him. The Holy Spirit is the life flow that works in us to allow us to rise above roadblocks, live beyond circumstances, and focus on Him instead of others. Yes, producing fruit can only come from a branch securely attached to the life giving Vine!
