I do have the words to a beautiful hymn that one of my most faithful readers reminded me I could post here and this will give you plenty to reflect on today - sorry, no picture today! However, I do have a link to a video that is gorgeous for this hymn (different version but one that has an interesting history also given at the link above or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoTGOVaY8mc
- 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.
You are the branches,
He who abides in Me and I in him.
He bears much fruit
For apart from Me you can do nothing.
Ask whatever you will and it will be done for you.
When we abide in the Lord and let His words abide in us,
We actually are one with Him as He works within us.
Then when we ask in prayer for whatever we will
It is not only we who are praying
He too is praying, in our praying.
This kind of prayer is related to fruit bearing
and will surely be answered.
That you should go forth and bear fruit,
And that your fruit should remain,
That whatever you ask the Father in my name,
He may give you.
