Tea with Tiffany P. was created especially for you. Yes, you! God sent me here to encourage you. To remind you of who HE IS and who YOU ARE in Christ.
Most of my precious young adult years were spent proving myself. I was overflowing with pride and didn’t even know it! My mission? To prove, “if she can do it, I can do it better!” This mentality led me to a place of emptiness. I believed the lie that pursuing things would make me happy. If only I’d been able to comprehend the wise words of Solomon, “I observed everything going on under the sun, and really, it is all meaningless—like chasing the wind.”
I’d accomplished quite a bit. I obtained B.S. and M.S. degrees in Engineering, worked for the largest aerospace defense contractor for 11 years, earned a six figure salary, drove my dream car, wore designer clothes, carried designer bags, sculpted 6 pack abs, and attained what most would consider the “perfect” body.
Guess where that left me? At the feet of Jesus, crying uncontrollably and surrendering it all to Him! I came to know, like Solomon, my pursuits were like chasing the wind. Don’t get me wrong, I’m proud of my achievements. My taste in nice things haven’t changed. I continue to take care of my body; however, I no longer idolize those things. I don’t look to those things to give me value. My worth, our worth, can only be found in Jesus.
One day, I had a revelation, “God doesn’t require I prove myself to Him. He’s the King! Why would I waste another minute proving myself to someone else?”
As I’ve grown older, and wiser, my mission has changed. My current mission is to abide in Him. For apart from Him, I can do nothing.
So, who am I?
I’m a sinner saved by grace.
Why am I here?
To bring glory and honor to God. I write about lessons learned while dating, my adventures as a housewife, marriage, family trips, healthy yummy recipes, and effective at home workouts.
The journey for me is far from over. God is still writing this story of mine. I’ve learned to sit back, relax, and watch Him work. Will you join me?
