The Vine Church


...I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, 
and I in them, will produce much fruit.  For apart from me you can do nothing.. John 15:5

The following are reflections from members of The Vine Church

that describe a time in their lives when God was real, and

beyond a doubt, the Author of their lives!

Writing this seems a bit difficult because I have so many stories to

share about how sincerely and lovingly God has been working in

my life since I became saved on 11/11/12. But the most impactful

I will share with my Christian family . I became engaged to my

fiancé in June of this year. Our wedding had been planned for

September., a day that has since passed. And the day we did not

get married.

There have been some trials for us to work through together with

God before we bind ourselves in a marriage led by Him. Prior to

making these decisions we prayed fervently. Many people were

praying for us and our relationship. There was a point where we

both wanted to run, and very fast, not towards each other as God


One evening, when I was having a heart to heart with God, He

revealed to me something that seemed like an impossible burden

to bear. He revealed that I was to stand beside my fiancé through

what was necessary to heal our relationship because he had big

things planned for both of us. My response. Was to argued with

him. Yes, I argued with God. He was laying on my heart

something that my worldly viewpoints and pride wanted to

completely ignore.

During a conversation with Pastor Mark I asked a question I knew

the answer to but just needed to hear. “So I’m supposed to listen,

right? If he lays on my heart a specific command and without a

doubt I know this is what he wants, I have to listen ?” The answer

is yes. There are plenty of stories in the bible referring to people

that disobeyed God’s direct commands and what happened as a


So after I got over myself and my pride, and stopped arguing with

the one I know to be purely 100% seeking my heart for His

kingdom, I submitted to my life circumstance. It’s not easy,but it

is so worth it! Some days are better than others. But I know

without a doubt that I am following what God wants of me and

what he wants for my life. And my soul rests in this knowledge.

The understanding that he is leading the way for my life gives me

a peace that seems indescribable most times. Selena
