It's Mutual

I have been convicted lately about time spent in scripture, or rather lack there of. There seems to be a million other things that are calling out to be done, and that is the one that gets back burner far too often.

It really hit home a couple weeks ago with a visual my friend Deb (see I do read your blog) wrote. Her sister had shared a sermon about abiding in the vine. Her pastor brought in a cut branch, and as he showed everyone this wilting branch he said "See how this looks? And this is only 24 hours off the tree, imagine 2 days later...one week later?"

No wonder I feel wilted and like I can never get it all done. I need to be revived, refreshed, and abide in my Vine.

I felt the same when I read that part from her blog. It's always so good to be reminded. I'm glad it's mutual (times three)

It's the getting back to it that matters, I have been working toward a routine so that I can look forward to it - His yoke is easy... and I long to trust Him more in that truth. Glad we are not alone, sister.
