OUR 12th ANNIVERSARY: A Devotional Message (1)

I made this carrot cake and my husband completed it with artificial flowers.
My prayer in our 12th Anniversary was asking Him to not let us playing Roller Coaster anymore. It's just enough to give both of us headache and tummy-ache. Time to relax and enjoy our life. Please, God! Amen.
Today, a day after our 12 Anniversary I read a very nice devotional message that was what I needed to help me refresh my mind. This message was written by Samuel Yudi S. in Indonesian and I tried to translated it in English. I share it here. It may be useful for you too.

Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, I will cut and every branch that bears fruit I prune, so that it may be many fruitful. 
(John 15: 2) 

Rick Warren, author of Purpose Driven Life, had two things contradictory. He is a great success because of his prints up to 15 million copies. At the same time, his heart devastated by his wife, Kay, who had cancer. Addressing these two things, Rick said, "I used to think that life is a row of mountains and valley. We walked through the dark times, reaching peak mountain, then back again, so constantly. Now I do not believe it anymore. Life is more like two railway lines fused at the tip, and at all times you will find it good and bad thing. No matter how many good things you have received, you still face the bad things that must be overcome. On the contrary, bad life that you live in, there is always a good thing can be appreciated."

Good and bad things can often make God a tool to our discipline. As the owner of the vineyard, He wants His many fruiting plants (v. 2). To get to that stage, The owner of the vineyard will cut the branches that do not bear fruit and clean the branches that bears fruit. Each of us will experience this process to produce equivalent quality. 

God disciplines us so that we bear much fruit. Bad situation should not weaken us. In fact, with confidence, we can said that God never stops with us-continues our process. Have we willingly disciplined by God, so that we glorify Him more? -- Samuel Yudi S/Our Daily Bread (Indonesian)
