My Jesus, My Savior: A Poem

Updated on August 18, 2011
"I am the vine; you are the branches..." John 15:5-8
"I am the vine; you are the branches..." John 15:5-8 | Source


Leaves are growing


My heart is showing


You're not gonna leave


For me You've already grieved


My Jesus, My Savior



You are the flourishing vine


You are more than divine


Jesus, you see my thorns


My rebellious branches have shown scorn


You still extend your growth, my Jesus, My Savior



Help me to sprout after You prune,


Closer towards Your branches I will bloom,


I want to produce bountiful fruit from my heart,


I know You've wanted that yield from the start,


My Jesus, My Savior...

      Yes, I can see how you made the connection with these parables.

      I was just re-reading this and I'm also reminded of the Parable of the Sower and of the good ground that bears fruit.

      It's a searching parable, I think.

      (I voted beautiful.)

      YW. It was the vine ref. and about pruning the branches that reminded me of that chapter.

      Reminds me of John 15.

      I like the testimony.
