Always Peachy Devotionals
Welcome to AlwaysPeachy Devotionals, a weekly blog on a verse or passage from the Bible. I started writing this devotional blog on a regular basis in 2011, when the stress at my job began to make me lose focus on the things that matter. I wrote the posts for me and me alone because they helped me get my head on straight every morning.
But some friends got a hold of them and encouraged me (repeatedly) to make them available to everyone. So I did. And AlwaysPeachy.com was born.
When I was in high school, a couple of kids in my graduating class started answering the standard, “How are you doing?” with a simple, “I’m peachy.” And for some of us, that simple response took on a life of it’s own. For us, “I’m peachy” was more than a flippant response. And it wasn’t sarcastic either. Because to us, being peachy meant that even if life wasn’t perfect, we were still better than okay. Because God still had a plan, and we still trusted Him.
So that was us then. And this is me now. I’m not just peachy. I’m always peachy.

I never wore expensive clothes when I worked at the library at Wichita State University. It wasn’t that we were unprofessional. I always looked nice. But we worked with ink daily, and no matter how hard you tried, you always ended up covered in it. So there was no point to spend money on expensive […]

Everyone has people in their lives who are hurtful. But God isn’t blind. He isn’t ignoring you. And He isn’t ignoring them either.
