How Juicy Do We Want to Be

 So, You Work Hard to Be the Best You Can Be…

What Happened???

You brush your teeth, wear a smile, comb your hair, and put on clean clothes

You read your Bible on a regular basis, pray, and walk in love

What on Earth is Wrong With Me…Why Don’t They Like Me?

We have all wanted to be liked or accepted…To “Fit In”. Waiting for that friend or family member to accept us, desire our presence, call us, send us an email, or post on our wall on Face Book, or include us in gatherings. Then we discover we were the one eliminated from that “Get Together” that was “thrown together at the last moment”…I’m sure we all remember a time we felt ostracized.

Well, my friend, it just may not be us…We just may be the ripest, juiciest peaches in the world but if someone doesn’t like peaches…It is not going to matter how perfect we are!!!

So, step back and evaluate the following about those you desire to associate yourself with…

  • How do they make me feel?
  • How do I act when I am with them?
  • What do we talk about when we are together? Are the Love Lee Thoughts?
  • Do they pursue you or do they come around because you pursue them?

By answering the questions above honestly we may discover, the relationships with friends and family we want so badly may not be the healthiest relationships for our lives. Perhaps God altered their taste to protect us from the negative effects these people have on our lives. Does it hurt…Yes!!! and this is because we think we “Need” these people in our lives. But in-fact, we would be much juicier and sweeter peaches if we place ourselves in the company of those who desire us, esteem us, and love us.

So, as the New Year approaches perhaps we might want to consider is…

  1. You are so right about this. I spent my entire life trying to “fit”. Then God said to me if you want to be my child I am the only one you need to Fit in with. His plan was bigger than my plan. I am whole in His grip. I always felt like the little girl looking in the candy store window wanting just one piece. But with God I own the franchise. Good wisdom friend. I miss you!!
