Focus Me Lord

“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.  Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”  John 15:1-2 (NIV)

Prune me Lord, prune me well.  Help me distinguish between learning that draws me closer to You or allows me to serve You better and what is just static that keeps me from hearing You as well as I can.  Help me distinguish among my activities: what serves You and what is clutter that keeps my mind and hours occupied apart from You.  Help me simplify my life and remove even possessions that take my time or attention away from You.
