When coming into a new season nature provides a natural shedding of the old to bring in the new. So that there is room for the new growth. However there are some in nature that require pruning. The plant gets heavy and the fruit cannot produce like it should. In life this is true as well. There are times that we need to cut away the dead unfruitful parts of our lives. It can be difficult sometimes, but like in nature if the pruning does not take place it chokes the life out . When faced with such challenging decisions one really has to take that leap of faith and know that God sees all and he wants the best for you. So close your eyes and take that proverbial jump. Trim away the deadness. Keep yourself full of life.
John 15:1-2 I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
