As I work in the garden of your life, I will prune and I will remove that which is dead and no longer fruitful. I will clear away all that has been trampled and spoiled and everything that was left gathering mould from previous seasons. Know that in this process I will walk gently and carefully through the grass, deeply connected and knowledgeable about every organism, every grain of soil, every petal. The process of preparation can be uncomfortable, but know that my spirit supplies all of your comfort. Once the deadwood is cleared and the thorns are cut away, you will suddenly see that open space. You will suddenly see that meadow of flowers swaying effortlessly in the breeze. Then, the sun will be able to warm every corner, and the grass will be green and vibrant. Trust that I alone am the Master Gardener, and I will bring forth bountiful fruit for my yielded ones. John 15: 1-4 NLT I am the true grapevine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch of mine that doesn’t produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more. You have already been pruned and purified by the message I have given you. Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.
