let it blossom …

music & words of an old secular song …

“let it blossom, let it grow” … but that’s the only part I can hear.

Been crying out to love like Jesus … if I could only capture this love, make it mine.

I strain & strain and I just can’t do it.

I finding myself saying, “so … what You’re saying Lord, is that I have to make my home in You; that only as I let this be intimate and organic; that only as I BE the branch; only as I REALLY live in You … REALLY  connected to You  … can’t get up and walk away from You; do my own thing; come back, hook up to the tree and be a branch again … doesn’t work that way. You’re saying I have TO LET IT BLOSSOM, LET IT GROW; that it’s a 24 hours in a day, 60 minutes in an hour, 60 seconds in a minute thing. OK. Help me. I want this more than anything else. I want it. I will to be obedient cause You said that’s the way it’s done. I believe it. I take it. I have it. Thank You & I forgive.”

Jonathan Butler “Falling in love with Jesus”

JOHN 15:4   Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can’t bear grapes by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me. MSG
