are times in the cycle of my roses that I have to prune them back.
While I hate disrupting the growth and the blooms, it is the right thing
Turning it over to the Lord and following the lead of Jesus encourages you to do your own 'pruning'.
We have to let go and walk away from things that we are
comfortable with; things that appear to us to be perfect for our life.
But truly are they?
Perhaps we are nothing more than those empty colorful bubbles
reflecting the lights and enticements of this world, floating aimlessly
until they encounter something solid or tough. Then they burst. Nothing
I am beginning to leave behind many things that use to be
'necessary' to me in life. The slow yet sudden dawning of what is truly
important brings a new focus to actions each day.
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility
value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but
each of you to the interests of the others.” Philippians 2:3-4 NIV
