Grace, forgiveness, and trust get all muddled up in the Christian life handbook. Do you understand how they’re different? Do you know what grace really is?
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.

Jesus took intentional steps to rest. He made it a priority because He was human too, just like us. So if Jesus was intentional about rest, why aren’t we?
