God's Green Thumb

Are you one of those people that have a "green thumb"? Do you have the ability to nurture, water and grow things? Or are you like me and have unintentionally killed every plant you have ever had or come into contact with? One of my favorite sayings when it comes to gardening is "I'm just thankful my kids are still alive." I seriously have no skills at gardening. None! No I really mean it! I have literally killed every plant I've ever bought, received or looked after. Luckily, I have an amazing testimony to share with you all.

Readiness



In all of our lives we experience seasons in which we feel paralyzed and unable to move forward into the things that we want to accomplish. We all take on more and more burdens every day through living in this harsh world. The Bible tells us that we should have our "feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace." (Ephesians) Readiness means that we have all that we need to move forward with what God has planned for us, but what does it mean to get our readiness from the "gospel of peace?"

I Confess…


When we think of the word confess the one think that comes to mind is a small child coming clean about their mistake. Usually confession has a somewhat unpleasant or terrifying connotation, but confessing can be an intimate and freeing experience between you and your heavenly Father! Confessing is simply the act of relinquishing control or dropping burdens at the foot of the cross.

My Savior's Feet


This week in The Landing we will be digging deeper by discussing Honesty! Honesty is more than just telling the truth to others, it is when we are not only honest to others, but we are honest with ourselves and most importantly, God! 

Honesty is being truthful and clinging to it no matter what! It requires us to have integrity, to follow the ways of Christ, and show the love of Christ in a way that makes others want to know what makes us different!

Are you Stagnant?

How often do you find yourself stagnant? You know, not going anywhere and maybe sometimes having a bad smell from the choices that you make? You are just not moving! It seems as if you are going no where. What if I told you that could change? Would you believe me? Would you doubt me because of all the terrible luck you have in life? Or would you be so desperate for change to try something new? Maybe you know what I'm talking about and you're afraid?

Never Lose Hope

How often do we “hope” for change yet we fail to see the changes that we want come to pass? It’s as if we tell ourselves time and time again that “I will do better next time,” or “tomorrow will be a better day,” all to find out that each day seems to get worse and worse. Eventually we begin to avoid hoping in order to not “get our hopes up.” Thankfully, God’s Word gives us the remedy for this grueling and all too common situation.
