September 8

Fruitless.
My efforts — 
Fruitless.
My striving — 
Fruitless.

Without you Lord,
 my works are nothing.
Fruitless.
Like leaves shriveling on a broken branch,
 they have no future.
No meaning.

For you Lord are the meaning.
Through you true nourishment flows.
Through you, my efforts have purpose.
A future.

Lord, today may I be rooted in you.
Nourished by you.
By your love.
May I be strengthened by you.
By your power.

Lord, today may I be fruitful.
