Fish Food For Thought

Tuesday July 16th 2019 - When I'm worried its usually because I'm trying to do everything myself. When I'm at peace it's usually because God is in control.

-Dave Willis

Monday July 15th 2019, - "If roses tried to be sunflowers, they would lose their beauty; sand if sunflowers tried to be roses, they would lose their strength."

It's time to walk our strengths and not feel shame or judgment in the areas we are gifted in. If you're a fish and expected to climb a tree, you'll never feel good enough. Identify your strengths, always try to grow but NEVER try to change yourself in the process. The sunflower, and the rose serve different and specific purposes, and squashing one to lift the other higher results in less variety, sameness, and destruction of something that was intended to be beautiful.
