Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
Connecting with God is one of the most essential needs of human beings. It's like breathing. We were designed to be near him. Apart from Him we are nothing and without Him we die. Each morning all the intentions of your day, every desire to achieve what you want: your job, school, homework, the room that needs to be fixed, unchecked emails. EVERYTHING is on hold waiting to be accomplished. Many times we rush through the day and we do not connect with Him. Our days, without a healthy time of connection with God, become heavy, boring, annoying and everything irritates us. But with God, when we have problems and difficulties things get easier and better.
There’s an anecdote about some brothers in Africa, who usually prayed outdoors in a place above the grass. Usually by the spot they prayed grass did not grow.Therefore, if any brother stopped praying, they would say with love: "Brother, the grass is growing in your house.” And today I ask you, “Is the grass growing in your home for failing to connect with him?” Connect with God.
