Abide in Me

Updated: Aug 11, 2020

"Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me." John 15:4

We need God—we are completely helpless without Him. As a branch that is severed from the vine will eventually diewe cannot live without being attached to God. Our bodies and souls (mind, will, and emotions) may be alive but our spirit will be dead. (That's the part of man that died in the garden.) Abide means to rest in, remain, stay connected, attached. The vine is the source of everything for the branch.

God wants our lives to overflow with abundant fruitfulness. What comes out of our lives is the essence of who we are. The fruit of our lives is the love, integrity, and character within us. God creates beautiful fruit in His children so that His life, refreshment, encouragement, love, and hope can touch and bless other lives.

"I am the vine, you are the branches; He that abides in me, and I in him, brings forth much fruit: for without Me you can do nothing." John 15:5 In God there is shelter, hope, comfort, safety, love. We can trust Him. I pray you will abide in HIm. May your life be filled with beautiful fruit for His glory. Blessings, Beloved.

About Me

Rena was born a block away from a fascinating tide pool in Vancouver, British Columbia. (She loves tide pools, painting, reading, writing...)

She has been an  Elementary and High School teacher for 18 years - is married and has four adult children - and has had the amazing opportunity to travel the globe as an Ambassador with the Department of Eternal Affairs.

Rena began writing her story - one of rejection, betrayal, and healing from brokenness - while sitting under a mosquito net in China. Two years later she put all the scribbly notes together at a guest house in Haifa, Israel. "A Life Set Free" was born.

"Bubs Bunny Goes to Camp", "Mommy & Baby's Journal", and her latest book -"MANHUNT" - Book 1 in "The Narrow Path Trilogy" -are all available on Amazon.

God took an abandoned, fearful child and is using her life to show the impossible is possible when our lives are surrendered to Him. He can do more than we ask or think. She sincerely hopes this blog blesses and encourages you. 

Blessings, Beloved.
