Why do you want to be—without Me? What are you trying to become that I can’t be at the center of?
We’re one now. The life you’re living is Mine and I AM more than you could ever hope to become on your own.
Stop striving without Me. Stay put and thrive in Me. There is no other way.
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. John 15:4
