2 Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.
Seasons come and go and there is a guarantee that nothing will be the same when transitioning from one to the other and as each season reoccurs year by year. Flowers may bloom with more buds the coming spring season, the leaves on the tree may be a little fuller and provide more shade this year or the grass may be a bit greener and feel like a lush carpet under your feet. Season by season can also result in a negative aspect of these changes. The flowers could wilt this year instead of bloom, the tree could lose it’s leaves without return of new replacements and the grass could become diseased and have brown patches throughout. Either way, seasons produce what they will in the duration in which they are present.
There’s one thing common about all these examples. Actions of preparation must take place before entering into the next season. In order to maintain and improve on the positivity of the former examples or recover from the negativity of the latter examples, a process must be completed to ensure the next season will be better than the last. This process doesn’t only relate to the things of nature but also to our spiritual life. The Lord wants the best for us and wants to see His children flourish and produce fruit, if we let Him. Don’t continue to carry the old or same fruits from season to season, let God prune the old from your spirit so you can reap what it is He has for you. What He will allow to come forward in our lives is on a much larger scale than what we can even imagine for ourselves. You cannot move to the next chapter in life if you keep re-reading the previous one(s).
