Be juicy.

A while back I stumbled across a group of women mocking me online. Not in a fun way, but with meanness & venom behind it. Nice "Christian" women. My "friends", I thought.

It stunned me. I'll admit it really knocked me down for a while. I was very hurt. "Am I really that awful?! Oh my gosh. Am I that annoying? Am I that nauseating??", I thought.

Then a few things finally dawned on me:

1) the mean girl tribe never goes away, no matter how old we get. They CHOSE to follow me & watch me.

2) I'm not everyone's peach, but I'm a perfectly juicy & ripe peach just as God made me.

I will shine & sparkle & leak happiness & sweetness & love into as many lives as God allows me to. I'm not everyone's flavor & neither are you, but don't EVER let that silence you. 🍑✨🍑✨

Life's detours

What if the detour you're on is actually your new way of life?
The new road might not be easy but could be filled with opportunities.
Embrace the challenges. Your new path could be unfolding in front of you.

Don't become jaded

Don't let the world harden you. Don't let circumstances steal your sweetness.
Don't become jaded. .... It's not who you were designed to be.

Your purpose

My purpose is not to please others.
My time isn't meant to be spent frivolously.
My body isn't meant for anyone's physical or viewing pleasure.
My desires aren't meant for instant gratification.
My talents are not meant to be given to receive accolades.
My emotions are not just meant to feel happiness and love.
My purpose is not to be in constant pursuit of satisfaction or peace. ....

My purpose is to shine God's love to anyone, anywhere, with every asset I have. Anything short of that is idolatrous. Anything I say or do without love at the core, is wasted.

Who were you told to be?

Choose who God designed you to be, not who people told you you should be.
