And so it is with our Christian life when the Father prunes us, and we wonder why He prunes here and not there, this part of my life and not that, me and not her... Perhaps it is because a third person needs that bit not cut off for support.
If I prune as I think is best,
though I am barely a novice gardener,
and really do not know what I am doing
and do what I do for my own enjoyment of how it looks to me,how much more does Our Father prune
as He knows is best?
For He is the omniscient Creator
who always works things together not for His good, but for the good of those who love Him.
