I love crunchy apples, and I hate, loath and am sickened by floury ones. When I used to live with my parents, if I got an apple from the fridge and bit into it, only to find a disgusting, floury taste, I would put it back into the fridge for my Dad to eat (because Dad’s eat everything, even floury apples). It became a running joke in the family because there were regularly apples with a bite taken out of them in our fridge. Why put them back in the fridge and not straight in the bin? Well, I knew that Dad, or perhaps someone else, would eat it. I’m not one to waste food.
I only just finished eating a deliciously crunchy apple today, which reminded me of my antics. But it also gave me a thought for the blog.
Only eat good quality fruit… No! Don’t settle for second best. That’s the Make Yourself Amazing thought: Demand the best, leave the rest. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. You are amazing, so demand the best of life.
Psalm 23:6a Surely Your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life
Goodness is pursuing you. Don’t settle for average. Just around the corner you’ll get the best. You might need to be a little more patient, and it might mean the timing isn’t perfect (in your eyes), but wait for the absolute best. Life is too short to live any other way.
