  1. And we cling, tightly, to that vine that produces life in us–and we trust. So. Beautiful. Such truth lighting the way.

    Rich blessings to you, “E”, as He brings you healing through your own story-telling…

  2. I would say that God is even better than that. He only allows the Enemy’s teeth to bite us so that we’re pruned. He doesn’t just take care of us after the attack, he manages it so that we will grow and the attack was ultimately for our good. I loved the metaphor. 🙂

  3. Thank you for these words of hope. In a prolonged season of trials and disappointments…I need reminding. Regularly. xx

    • You are so very welcome, precious sister ~

      I am so sad that you are going through the “endurance test” for I think it is one of the hardest! I travel the same road, currently with you.

      I will put you on my prayer list and if you ever need particular prayer, please feel free to let me know…I never, share with others.

      We cling together to our Jesus

      p.s. I, personally, never knew how difficult (((disappointments))) could be until this year. This is a very rough one for the enemy starts to really come into our minds and slander the character of our God to us 🙁 🙁 🙁

  4. I love the image of God examining us closely for signs of growth, it encourages me deeply today. Thanks for sharing.

  5. What a great and encouraging post. I have shared it with some friends that are going through some tough trials right now.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • You are so very welcome, Gloria!

      I am saddened for your friends but how wonderful that they have a friend that cares!

      I will put your friends, on my prayer list. Not knowing them, individually, but we know He does and bends so near to them during these difficult days ~

      God bless you!

    • Oh, you are so very welcome, Alexandra 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Yes, the abiding life is the life of deep joy and peace, isn’t it?

      Now, if I would only remember! But I am most grateful our dear Jesus is so patient as He works with us!

      Thank you for taking a bit of your precious time to encourage me, also! XOXOXO
