Our current sermon series on The Abundant Life made me once again that Jesus is the true vine that I cling to and receive from all that I need to not just survive but to THRIVE. I love this condition of being able to thrive in Him and from Him. It is comforting. What I could be facing today may be a delay or a distraction or even a devastation for a short time but it is not the finale. Jesus will have the final say over my life and not the challenges.
