A Bruised Peach is still a Sweet Peach

Sometimes we look in the mirror and all we notice are flaws: wrinkles, dark circles, big nose or a pimple. Often, we think God sees us the same way.

But God created all of us. And He has a special recipe for bruised peaches that makes them shine in award-winning cobblers and preserves.

Today’s wisdom comes from life coach and author of Christian non-fiction books, Holley Gerth. She’s no stranger to this blog. I wrote about her before.

She relays a story about a visit to a fruit seller here.

Her spiritual lesson:

“We all have parts of our hearts or stories that we think don’t measure up. We call them unworthy and less than and we put them to the side.”

I hope you’ll click over to her page and give this article a look. It’s short but powerful.

What area of your life have you considered too bruised or broken for God to use?
