What Are You Planting and Harvesting in Your Life?

What Are You Planting and Harvesting in Your Life?

What a person plants, he will harvest. - Galatians 6:7 MSG

As the daughter of a former farmer, I’ve always felt a little inferior that I never had a green thumb. I’m too impatient. Too lackadaisical and I tend to pick the plants with the easiest prep and care needs. But the real problem with my brown thumb mentality is a lack of intention and practice.

Our spiritual lives are like seeds, and if we nourish them with daily care in prayer, the Word and day-to-day alignment with God, these fruits will flourish. However, even the best plants, when surrounded by too many rooted distractions, or the wrong variation of greenery will suffocate and be overtaken

Time with God doesn’t just happen - we have to intentionally make it happen. If we put it off or make it a chore, we’re telling ourselves (and God) that moments with Him are on par with dusting or folding laundry. Necessary for utility and cleanliness but a dreaded part of our routine

But God delights to spend time with us! Not only that, He’s waiting for us to realize that time spent with Him is the most effective choice we could make in a day. When we plant that intention, we reap the benefits of His harvest: joy, perspective, peace, etc

Challenge: Set aside time to start your day with the Lord - even if it’s only a few minutes! Prioritize His presence over extra sleep, email or social media! Who’s with us on this challenge?!

It seems like every day we are flinching from the news both in our communities and our nation. The heaviness and the relief.The grieving and the celebrating.The division and the community.The questions and the solutions.My head and heart are reeling in the most unfamiliar way.One of the sweetest gifts is to be able to honestly share all these feelings with my community, and I truly hope that you have a safe plac...
