pruning to increase fruitfulness

I was gripped by the thought from John 15 in Sunday school this morning that God's pruning to expand fruitfulness is often not merely a cutting off of dead branches, wicked deeds, sinful stuff in our lives; 

but it also includes a pruning of good branches that are just too many or growing in a way that would inhibit more growth other places or overall

And the take-away question for me: 

What has God pruned from my life or does He want to prune to increase fruitfulness for His kingdom? What (even good) thing is getting in the way of greater growth? 


Just what I'm meditating on today.
