A Season

I've been in a season of intense pruning.
At times, the lobs have been so deep, it seemed that all of me was ruining.
Everywhere I go, I seem to see
Evidence of pruning, like what the LORD is doing in me.
John 15:1 and 2
I AM the True Vine, and My Father is the Vinedresser. Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit.

I pray, the harvest of this season, is that I will "bear more and richer and more excellent fruit."
LORD, may my life be so abiding in yours, that I cannot hold sin, not even a root.
I want to "bear more and richer and more excellent fruit."
