"So," they say, "nobody's perfect!"
But the Vinedresser won't buy that.
Given the opportunity, He will trim the unproductive suckers and shape the branches so each one will bask in Sonlight.

      I've begun praying again for God to use me in advancing His kingdom and purpose. Such prayers usually involve pleas to make me more useful, assuming my current condition precludes such usefulness. Yet, in view of His eternal power and the indomitability of His will, my character faults, regardless how gross they seem to me, cannot interfere with His plan .

      Thus, I keep asking Him why He won't use me more powerfully—though not necessarily publicly—to influence my world for Him. The interrogative "why," however, is a futile appeal when addressed to the self-existent One; His infinite mind and eternal motives being completely outside my temporal frame of reference.

      So I reckon I'll satisfy myself with the knowledge that He loves me more than I can ever imagine, and as the Bible says, works all things for my good.
      Praise God for His faithfulness!.
