When Branches Break

15 thoughts on “When Branches Break”

  1. I am praying for you to feel rested and refreshed in the Lord tonight, dear friend. And when I saw that broken branch, I thought of the many ways that God has had to prune the dead branches out of my heart so that His new life could flow through to the new shoots. It is so hard to hear that CRACK that you wrote of hearing! I don’t like to see the pruning happen. But yet, like you said, HE brings life after death. May I continue to pray for His life to grow, in me and in those I love also. Blessings, love and hugs to you dear Julie! xo

    1. The sound was eerie sister. I had trouble finding the words, but here you helped me go deeper. Yes, the pruning dear Bettie. I have begun to pray for my heart every day. I just shudder when I hear ugly sounds in it. Thank you so much for your thoughts tonight. Blessings, love and gentle hugs to you sister❤

  2. What a beautiful metaphor — the broken branch, the tree, the grafting. I pray you will feel better soon. Get some good rest, Julie. May God strengthen you in wondrous ways. Love from The Carolinas!

    1. Oh dear Lord, please give this woman, weary of praying in the wilderness of worry for her loved ones. Please use these words to freshen her hope and give her strength to continue speaking with You. We thank You for Your patience in wanting everyone to be saved and not perish. For Your mercy and kindness are more than we deserve. In Jesus name, Amen

  3. I pray that you recover quickly. Your lesson about the branch reminds me of a small tree that I once saw. It had managed to sprout from a small crack between a piece concrete and the side of a brick building.

  5. Oh, there’s been a lot of lopping and a profusion of pruning in my life, yet it’s always been for my benefit even if it doesn’t feel much like it while it’s happening. It’s reassuring to know we are grafted into Christ by faith. You’ve also reminded me not to give up hope of my remote, rejecting loved ones being saved, and a renewed desire to keep on praying for them because God can help bring about a change of heart any time. Thank you, Julie! Sending grateful hugs and blessings of rest and recovery to you, dear friend. May you abundantly receive all you need to be encouraged, strengthened and sustained in the Lord’s work. xo ❤

    1. so thankful to Jesus, Joy. He truly never gives up on anyone and will personally climb over the fence for the lost sheep. I receive this gracious blessing from across the pond. Please know I pray for the lost often. If you care to share their names, I will pray specifically. God bless you and keep you in His loving arms, Joy. Love, Julie
