Five Minute Friday {Remain}


I love the way vines grow.  

They delicately twist and twirl around anything that stands still.  

Branches and leaves cling.

Life pulses through the sturdy stalks 

Boasting branches grow in a chaotic pattern. 

Flowers wave in the gentle breeze.  

Fruit weighs and bends.  

The lovely green-leafed carpets steadfastly cover latticed structures.

Beauty remains as long as it is connected.

"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."  John 15:5

Remaining comes with a promise, 
that if we stay attached to 
connected with 
abide in
dwell among
or inhabit
we will have God's life surging through our course branches.

If we allow God's Spirit to abide in us
dwell among us
we will bear 
His fruit
 love...joy
 peace...patience
 kindness...goodness 
 faithfulness...gentleness
and self-control.

Remain.In.Jesus.
Remain.Life.Beauty.
