OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: Or inspiration for today is from Gospel of St. John. 15:5, “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.” NIV.
If you are working on a difficult task remember Jesus is “your vine.” The vine gives energy, life, nutrition, and everything the branches need to grow fruit. No matter what church you go to Jesus is the “Vine,” a Christian’s inspiration, power, and hope. If you take a branch off the vine it can’t make fruit. Sometimes when I have a hard time I say something like, “Jesus This project is too big or hard I give myself to you and ask you to do it through me. I give you my weakness and receive your strength, I give you my lack of ideas and receive your wisdom, I give you my inability and receive your power. Thank you Jesus you are going to do this through me.”
