I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him,

the same beareth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

John 15:4a, 5

Welcome Friends,

Our prayer is that VineWords: Devotions and More will become a site you will come to often as a respite from the busyness of everyday living. Whether you are a seeker, a new believer, or you have served the Lord for a long time, there is something you can benefit from at VineWords.  

John 15:1,4,5 is our inspiration for everything that happens through VineWords. We desire to help you draw closer to Jesus Christ, The True Vine. 

We look forward to serving you a banquet from God’s Word. So, pull up a chair, scooch up to your computer screen, and dine.

Writers are taught the principle, “Show; don’t tell.” We apply this concept by writing parable as well as testimony devotions. The aim of each story is to highlight a scriptural truth in a way that will create a remembrance. Although some of the parable devotions are fiction, most have been inspired by real individuals. There are also testimony devotions. These also show God’s grace in the lives of  others. For your benefit, the genre is noted if it is fiction. Otherwise, you may assume it is a true story. Some names have been changed. We hope these devotions will linger in your spirit and deepen your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.


3-Minute Devotions

For your busy lifestyle, the VineWords 3-Minute Devotions category may be just what you need to fuel your morning, or as a mid-morning or late evening “snack.” These devotions are abbreviated versions of other devotions/articles on the site. We try to keep the word count to under 400. Enjoy!


In this section you will find VineWords Devotions for your enjoyment. We respect your time by keeping the length to around 400 to 600 words. Most of the parables (fiction) are in this section, as well as real life testimonies. We hope you will find this useful for your morning or evening devotion time.

Contributors and Guest Bloggers

We are delighted to feature VineWords Contributors and Guest Bloggers. These writers are selected because of their love of the Lord Jesus, and their message. Word count varies with each individual blogger according to his/her writing style. Check this section often to see who has shared his/her story at VineWords.


Jesus heals, saves, and is the most wonderful person who ever lived, and He is alive today. We want to celebrate Him! Therefore, we have added a VineWords Testimonies section to the blog to do just that. We pray these testimonies  will encourage you to believe that God’s mighty Word is as relevant today as it has always been.  


For that entry that just doesn’t fit the above categories, you will find it in the VineWords Potpourri section. Here you will find articles, children’s stories, and a “potpourri” of other writings. Have fun reading  these marvelous miscellaneous musings from the writer’s keyboard.
