The Branch

Prescript: This is the first of a series of writings I began years ago called, Petals of Promise. I look up a theme God gives me to write about in Scripture and God forms a shape on paper from HIS Truth. I have a few others also. Enjoy. . .

John 15:5

You give me reason to dream.

In the warmth of Your cloistered garden, I listen for the sound of Your footsteps.
I am tethered to Your trunk.
The one true vine whose wood is better than any tree in the forest.
It is Your father, my gardener, who prunes back last year’s cane growth for new buds to form.
You keep watch over me from heaven.
It is His vision of my shape in Your kingdom come.
My barren branch spurs with Your love.

Thirsty for Your water, I can become like a wild branch whose leaves wither and produce no fruit.
My roots reach into the dampened darkness in search of Your love.
My branches turn toward Your light and my boughs support healthy clusters of leaves.
At Your feet, the heavens grace my leaves with glistening dew.
At Your command, the winds direct the eagle to soar and rest it’s wings of power upon my fragile branch.

Apart from You,  I bear no worth.
I am the branch that remains in You.
This year’s growth will yield delicate blossoms in light of Your time.
Eternally linked to You, I produce clusters of goodness.
Good soil and abundant water produce in me sweet, delicate fruit.
I am created with the desire to live under the shade of Your provision.
You give joy and purpose to my life.
You are planning a celebration that will quench all who thirst for the full measure of Your love.
Your own lips await the cup of Your promise.
I will feast with You on the tender grapes and aged wine of Your righteousness.

You give me reason to dream.
