4 Steps to Quench Dry Spells and Enter Renewed Abiding — Heartful Faith

This has got to be the best explanation I’ve ever heard about what it means to abide in the Vine!  This author, Signora Sheila, lives in Italy where literally thousands of vineyards are cultivated!  Check out her post:

If you’ve walked with Christ for any length of time you have probably experienced dry spells. You pray, you read, you attend church, and seek fellowship. But it seems you’re just going through the motions and get little out of it. God seems far off, the heavens closed.

  1. Thanks ever so much, Ruth. I am blessed that this post spoke to you! But I do feel it’s something I need to dig in deeper on. Both on understanding it – and on practising it in my own life. I only know that the longer I walk with Christ, the more I see how very much I need more of him! Have a blessed day!

  2. Thank you for sharing. So often my life is so cluttered when suddenly I realize I have not spent any quality time with the Lord. Or I am seeking him genuinely and cannot hear his voice. I have told him that I miss him. But I need to remember he has not left me. Sometimes he just allows me to diligently seek him and then trust. I love him so. Again thank you. Its encouraging.

    1. No problem! I think we all hit those dry spells. I thought this post from the perspective of someone who sees vineyards often was really great! I’m glad it encouraged your heart! I like what she said about the pruning, cutting out the excess and how that relates to our overcrowded lives when we spread ourselves too thin. We truly need to seek Him first as King, and everything else will fall into place in order.
      Yes, if we seek Him with all our heart, we will find Him. Praise God His word is true, and He is faithful to do what He promises to do!
