Jesus, the Vine to my Branch – Episode 17



‘I Love You’. Such a powerful phrase, many expectations, dreams and potential in one phrase.  Depending on the speaker of thes words, the validity and connotation can vary. One thing’s for sure, when God tells us, “I Love You” we can be sure it’s the real deal. As such, we have to ensure that when we face ourselves and say those famed three words, we too are the real deal.

In God we find the vine to our branch, how to we use the love, consitency and faith of the vine to nurture and strengthen our branch with self-love?  This week, Minister Shawn Lawrimore challenges us to build our relationship with God with self-love as a foundation.  This week’s message is supplemented in the devotional “Jesus is The Vine”.  “I am the vine; you are the branches.  If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”  John 15:5 

The vine and the branches form an inseparable unit. We cannot see where the vine ends and the branch begins.  The branch is continually being fed by the vine.  If the branch is cut from the vine, it will wither and die.

You must remain in Jesus like the branch in the vine.  This implies that you will be willing to work on your relationship with Him, that you will grow and become stronger every day, so that you will be able to bear much fruit.  It also means that you will get to know him better, and love Him even more.

The Valley Of The Shadow of Death – Healing with Minister Shawn Lawrimore – Ep14



In Episode 14 Minister Shawn Lawrimore addresses the important of building a solid relationship with God.  This week’s message, ‘The Valley Of The Shadow of Death’ is strongly rooted in Psalm 23:3-4:  He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death.  I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 

All our paths sometimes take us through dark places and dangerous valleys’ places where we can’t see God or hear His voice. In all our lives there are times of crisis when it seems as if God is far way and a stronger, as if He is no longer acting like the loving God we are used to.  The psalmist also experienced time like these. In Psalm 10:1 he asks, “Why, O Lord, do You stand far off? Why do You hid Yourself in times of trouble?”

Children of God are by no means exempt from hardship and suffering, but we know that God is with us throughout these times; that He walks with us through the valley of the shadow of death; that He is able to protect us against all dander; that He never lets go of our hands, even though we sometimes pull our hands from His.  And in God’s hands His children are always safe.

You may take this promise with you on your journey through life.. God is there for you in times of crisis, in times of suffering, in times of sorrow.

Even if you are lost in the valley of the shadow of death, you can still be assured that He will lead you safely through every danger, and the you will one day have eternal life with God.

Heavenly Father, it is so wonderful to know that You are with me when I have  to travel through the Valley of the shadow of death; that your hand guides me even there and the You will ultimately lead me safely home.  Amen.
