DAY 103 OF 365: WALKING THROUGH THE WORD DEVOTIONAL

I’ve seen short trees will long branches as well as thin trees with large branches. Whatever the branch is, big or small, doesn’t make it independent of the tree. It still only exists because of its connection to the tree. The moment the branch disconnects, it loses the connection to all the juice needed to sustain life. Such branch will dry up and die. And that’s what being connected to Jesus is like…

Title: STAY CONNECTED

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.

John 15:4-8

THE DREAMER WITHIN (continued)

“See, I’m a living reality because of you. I’m here to pull down those walls with you. Do you know how hard it’s been for me? I mean, I love you so dearly, and to watch your life get harder and harder, and to watch you lose the ability to see or hope again, do you know how hard it has been for me?

I mean, to watch you turn into the type who works like the elephant anr survives like the ant…working harder and harder the more. Seeing you struggle through the storms, unable to hear my voice. Watching you choke under the circumstances and I can’t help you. Not because I can’t help, but because….you just won’t let me. You never thought I could do it. But, I could have helped, or…I would’ve, if only you’d let me.

I never stopped talking, or caring, or loving.
This has been the hardest part: watching you lose sight of me, the pinnacle of your destination and motivation disappearing into the distance.

Why? Because you thought you have arrived at a point where “We” weren’t a possibility no more. A point where you’ll eat everything and catch all the “fun” now, and let the future, your destiny I mean, sort itself out.

Those around weren’t there to love you like they should have. No one cared enough to give the gentle nudge in the right direction. I tried hard to come around, but…you kept pushing me away. You became more and more detached from love, from yourself, and from my reminders and promptings. And instead of letting the flames we both kindled to stay alive, you let it die by giving in to a life of despair. A life without hope, without divine purpose, without love, trust,…without me.

She sighs
Continues

“The passion we both shared was a motivation to others. Everyone was proud and I was grateful for being attached to you.

Now, here I am, locked up at the center of your soul, covered in the dusty memories of a beautiful past. And all I hear from you are complaints upon complaints, and how you couldn’t do, how you couldn’t be , and how you couldn’t have. How nobody is there for you, and how somebody did this or that to you…

You were meant to be a high achiever, a success together. You have greatness, gifts and talents, you’re not touching or even thinking about yet.

The problems you claim are too big and impossible to conquer… They are all beneath your personality.

Your answers, your fire, your passion, your power, they are all within you. I’m willing to help you if only you’ll listen and give in to the force stirring within your Spirit… YOUR DREAMER WITHIN.
