I love the analogy of the gardener. I can just see how I need to be deadheaded and trimmed to remove the unproductive bracken and clutter from my life that hinders me from flourishing.

"If any remain in me and I remain in them, they produce much fruit. But without me they do nothing." v5

If I want to flourish I need to be fully connected to the vine. Not just trying to flourish as my own seperate entity, but to flourish in Him, graced by His goodness that flows into me as I hunger and thirst for Him and am fulfilled by Him.
