Beauty for Prickles.
Can you tell what this is? A cactus. . . . No, really . . . Look at this.
I had to bend way down to see the prickles.
What a beautiful transformation God has made. From a normal vantage point it's all flower. All beauty.
That's what I want. I want God to hide my prickles with His beauty. I've got a lot of prickles, so it takes a great big God to cover them all.
"I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it, that it may bear more fruit.
You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you, unless you abide in me." John 15:1-4
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit." Galatians 5:22-25
