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.
(John 15:5, NIV)
My ministry. My “mission.” I get so focused on my work that it becomes my preoccupation and my goal in life.
But Lord, You kindly check me at this point. Do I really want to do anything more than to live in fellowship with You, to be conscious of Your presence? No, Lord, I don’t. I want nothing more than You.
All my fruitfulness is in You. I don’t need to get caught up in achievements or milestones. I can relax from the pressure to succeed. Moment by moment all the wisdom, all the working is Yours, my Lord.
I want to simply enjoy You and my journey with You, remaining open to Your leadership. Thank You, Lord! Thank You for Your personal love to me.
Jesus, You love me. How else could I respond but to love You every moment?
