I want to be a peach

We were not meant to have a mediocre life.

We were meant to live a radical, blessed, edgy, open, screaming about the love of Jesus life.

I’ve heard people sometimes being referred to as an onion, and even in the movie The Blind Side, Leigh Anne and Michael are each referred to as onions, where you have to peel them back one layer at a time.

But I don’t want to be an onion. I don’t want people to only see pieces of me at a time, to not know the real me until layer after layer is revealed.

I want to be a peach.

I want to have just enough skin to hold the bursting flavor inside. And when the skin is open, I want to burst forth with the sweet scent and taste of trueness, compassion, and radical love for Jesus.

I want people to see that underneath that sweet soul is a hard rock, a pit that is not a pit, but instead the unbreakable core of my life that is my Lord and Savior.

I want to be a peach.
