It Is Spring, Time To Prune

With the season change it can't be but noticed the budding plants and trees. God is preparing the growing things to bloom and blossom when the time is right. Old leaves and branches have been blown off and away. The rain has fed the roots that supply the life. All of this leading up to natures big show in the summer. We can do the same. Let the old leaves and branches fall by the wayside. You may have to physically cut or prune a dead non productive person or persons out of your life. If you have someone who just won't move in their discomfort. Someone who cast doubt and never changes. Let them go on. Pray for them. But do not let them block your blessings. You know Peter was always questioning Jesus. Always. Jesus saw something in him and did not let him go. Yes, he had to prune away the "dead leaves" and Peter bloomed into a beautiful God blessed man. There was also "doubting Thomas" who did not believe Jesus died on the cross and was resurrected from the dead until he put his finger in the nail holes in Jesus hands. In this case Thomas' doubt was peeled away and he went on to blossom.
Genesis 1:28 God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
