We all know the saying, “When life throws you lemons, make lemonade.” For the first time in my life, I had to take this quote to heart. “Life” had definitely thrown many unexpected lemons my way.
With these lemons came choices. I could be bitter and give the enemy victory, or give God the victory by making lemonade. I chose to make lemonade.
Have you ever made lemonade from scratch? It’s not easy like the instant Crystal Light mix where you just add water. Lemonade made from lemons takes some time and much preparation. It takes patience.
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.JJames 1:2-4
P.S. Seasons come and go, but God can make entering a new season sweet as lemonade.
